When the Unelmoija and her sister dropped Ernie off at Harry’s house near Portland, Maine before vanishing into time, they hoped to give him a fresh start. Unfortunately, Ernie, a lanky shy man with a natural gift for technology and gadgets enhanced by his superhuman Weeia abilities, fell in with the wrong crowd. Left holding the bag for a crime he did not commit, Ernie is sentenced to the Weeia equivalent of public service, doing grub duty at the Marshals Academy, where the Weeia super cops are trained to keep the superhuman race hidden. Breaking the rules there is not a good idea, but Ernie cannot resist a good challenge, never realizing he will be swept up in the middle of a sinister plot that could cost him his life.
Ernie made this story for me. He was a character that you couldn't help but relate to and you found yourself rooting for him. His relationship with his mentor and father-figure, Harry was heart-warming and Ernie's constant struggle with his past and nervous twitches made him all the more personable.
The mystery with the garden was intriguing and great for meeting Amanda, a girl looking to become a marshal. The whole idea behind the marshals was something that I found a great addition to the world Elle Boca was creating.
I'll also note that I'm jumping into this without knowing why or how Ernie came to be where he is and this didn't hinder my reading experience at all.
