Prince George novelist Neil Godbout will debut his second book, titled Dissolve, at Mosaic Books in downtown Kelowna on Friday, Oct. 26, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Dissolve is the second book of the Broken Guardian trilogy and the sequel to Disintegrate, released last year.

It is a young adult urban fantasy, set in Kelowna and Prince George, with briefs stops in Vancouver, Ottawa, Los Angeles and London.

Sean Cummings, the Saskatoon-based urban fantasy author of Poltergeeks, calls Dissolve “intelligent fiction for young adults who are tired of the same old fare.”

In Dissolve, Sam and Lily are reunited after a summer apart but Lily craves to be more human and Sam wants to be more of…well, whatever he’s becoming.

Meanwhile, other forces are lining up against them, including someone who will force both Sam and Lily to make horrible choices that will change them forever.

Godbout is the managing editor of the Prince George Citizen newspaper and a former reporter with the Capital News.

He has won provincial and national recognition for his newspaper work during 25 years as an editor, reporter and photographer.

Godbout attended high school in Lake Country and is a graduate of George Elliot Secondary School. His parents are enjoying their retirement years living in Kelowna.
