Over The Hills Of Green is a work of magical realism and fantasy fiction penned by author E. V. Svetova. Written as the second novel in The Green Hills Trilogy, this enchanting modern-day novel is set in New York, at a hospital where psychologist Anna Reilly is about to take on the case of her life. Enter the mysterious John Doe, an androgynous figure with enchantment all around him. But does John come from another world entirely, or is he simply a product of his own mind’s illness? Anna soon becomes desperate to know, and the closer she gets to John’s reality, the further she seems to slip from her own.
Author E. V. Svetova brings magical realism and speculative fiction fully into the contemporary fiction world with this deep and emotive work that explores gender, sexuality and the ties which hold us to reality, all whilst delivering a really excellent fantasy fiction plot. The New York setting and Anna’s behavior ground us in firm reality with some excellent narration, establishing the proposed rules of the book so that Svetova can knock them down again when Anna’s breakdown begins. The spiraling wordplay creates a lucid atmosphere, but the plot structure is firm and confident, so even if you don’t know where you’re headed, you feel comfortable as a reader to keep going with the ride. What results is a superb mystery enmeshed with the psychological plot, making Over The Hills Of Green an essential read for speculative and magical realism fans looking for something totally fresh and new.
