About Jeremy’s mother and Jeremy’s conception.

Thoughts

I never quite understood throughout the Women of the Otherworld stories just why Jeremy’s father was so horrific – what it was that could turn a father so completely against his child. Yes, it sets up the character and storyline beautifully, but the rationale behind such a horrid creature has long fascinated me. And, finally, parts of Jeremy’s heritage and Malcolm’s rage are bought to light in this stunning short story. Although it is guaranteed to leave a sour taste in your mouth.

Although Infusion doesn’t completely explain Jeremy’s mysterious allure and powers, there are so many hints throughout. Likewise, his similarity to his grandfather and the incredible strength of his mother are highlighted in a way that makes it easy to understand the serious and contemplative man who he becomes. I love origin stories in general, and none can harken back to a character’s origin more succinctly than that of their very conception and birth.
