What if your déjà vu lasted ten minutes? Involved ten neighbors? Linked to a 1001 lifetimes with this group? This is your qaraq. Sahara Fleming, with her magical time travel powers, is her qaraq’s Scheherazade. But her estranged husband wants her back; she enjoys their romance, but Sahara sees their reincarnations as visionary terrors.
Then the Maya Factor shatters her qaraq. Maya, or “worldly illusion,” blocks some from receiving their reincarnation stories. Others uncover shocking links between ancient tombs, the sinister Red Isle, and a seventeeth century coven.
Is there a grand vision to the qaraq’s lives? Or is it another layer of Maya, obscuring the truth? Sahara can’t tell. If something exists beyond the Maya Factor, will it save the qaraq? Or tear it apart?
Structured as a modern Arabian Nights, Stephen Weinstock’s wildly imaginative 1001 conjures up magical, dark, humorous, and visionary reincarnation stories.
