    One thought on “Strangers on a Plane (The Prometheus Saga)”

    1. Set during the Vietnam War, Kay Kendall's "Strangers on a Plane" is a tale of a chance meeting with a mysterious individual.While en route to Canada with her infant son, Austin chats with an elderly lady. It doesn't take long for Austin to realize there is more to Promethea than she puts on. Firstly, there's something not quite right about Promethea. Her demeanor and choice of words are slightly off. And then, of course, she strangely seems to know more than someone in her place ought to - about [...]

    2. On a flight to Canada, Austin Starr (with her infant son) is on her way to visit a friend accused of committing a crime. But it's what happens during that flight that really affects Austin when she meets an elderly woman with strange abilities. A well-written, thought-provoking short story and introduction to the heroine of Kay Kendall's mystery series.

    3. In Kay Kendall's Strangers On A Plane, a young mother and her baby cross paths with an enigmatic woman whose origins leave many questions and whose intervention as their journey is threatened heightens the mystery. Another well written story in The Prometheus Saga.

    4. It's 1969. Austin Starr, a young mother (and gifted sleuth), catches a transcontinental flight to Vancouver to help a friend in trouble. In-flight, she meets a mysterious, worldly (other-worldly?) woman who seems to understand Austin's deepest fears and highest aspirations.Kay Kendall weaves a heartfelt, thoughtful story of a turbulent time, and illuminates the forces shaping both the individual and the larger societyd it's framed in the form of a suspenseful science fiction story. I'm still thi [...]

    5. A quick and intriguing read! Austin Starr meets an elderly woman, Promethea, while travelling to British Columbia. Promethea can silence stewardesses in a single stare, quiet fussy babies, and perhaps more. An interesting premise :)

    6. This is the first Prometheus story I've read that takes place over a very short length of time. It encompasses one plane ride where the main character ends up sitting next to the being I've come to know from this saga of short stories named Prometheus. An alien sent from another place to Earth to watch and learn of humans. A being constructed from our DNA who can heal itself and change its form to whatever age and gender it wishes. It lives on generation after generation interacting with humans [...]

    7. Nice historical texture. As a bridge between novels, this story works well for readers familiar with the character. Coming at it from not having read the first novel, I really wanted to know more about the protagonist's situation since that formed the basis of the story more than the actual incident involving the plane. The incident is framework- we never know what's happened, why, or how it's resolved, which is fine since it's beside the point, which is the interaction between the protagonist a [...]
