    I read it I finished it It was neither good nor bad I won t recommend this I feel my time could have been better spent on a different book.

    This was quite interesting and intriguing, though got bogged down in details at times The blurb pretty much says it all so here s my thoughts Character wise, I really liked Special Agents Lauren Madison and Ellis Cole They make a good team and their banter was fun to listen to The science guys were well written and researched They are uber smart and quite daunting The plot was, at times hard to follow when they got into the nitty gritty of the time travel, but also interesting and thought provoking I also liked how the story is told from the past and present It all wraps up nicely in the end In all, a good listen I wanted a little character development though I felt like they all stayed the same and didn t grow Other than that, It s a good book and I m glad I listened to it Paul Heitsch was amazing This isn t the first book I ve listened to that s narrated by him and it won t be my last He is clear and concise and easy to listen to and puts his all into his performance I received this for review, this in no way affects my thoughts.

    Not what I expected, this is a bit too hard core sci fi for my taste The plot revolves around time travel, a difficult concept to capture without internal contradictions McWilliams pulls this off well, although the plot lags at times and there is a hint at a second, sub plot that is never fully revealed The writing is good, with characters that have depth The writing bounces between first person past events and third person present events This was disturbing at first, but I quickly adjusted I was mostly disappointed with the lack of a satisfying ending Without giving away spoilers, I ll say it just ended, period.

    I usually enjoy sci fi stories dealing with time jumps and travel, but this book didn t do much for me It read like a made for tv action movie The characters weren t well developed at all, and were very over the top in both mental and physical abilities Several seemed to be closer to superheroes than to mere mortals There were many cool action scenes, but not a good overall plotline The big ending reveal climax was quite a letdown The entire story ended by solving a great crisis that was barely mentioned, let alone developed This could have been much better.

    A very fast read The characters are thin and the book should have been at least a 100 pages longer Many of the cast do unexplained things with plenty of action The plot is a different type of time traveling but is satisfying John McWilliams has created a story that is a good first book I ll be looking for him in the future.

    3 3.5 starsThis was a clever time themed story Overall it was fun, even if there were several things that didn t make any sense.Narration was good.

    A good writer in many ways, but a bit too much like a lecture sometimes He goes a bit overboard with descriptions, which oftentimes become redundant with overexplaining A very good premise here, but it s lost in the back and forth timeframe, and he doesn t quite pull it together for me Some of the very important details were lost for me, within much of the dialogue and explanations, so as it neared the end I was still trying to piece it all together Some of the story became confused because the writer added a lot of side stories that didn t have anything to do with the plot For instance, one of the main characters, an FBI agent, was using the entire investigation as material for a screenplay she was writing This had nothing to do with the plot, and did not push the story along It only served as did many other small details to confuse the reader The story needed a better editor, in my humble opinion I won t give spoilers here, but the ending was very sudden and made no sense to me I m sure that if I went back through, with a fine toothed comb, and researched the storyline , I could put it together But alas, it was a bit too much work to do that It was a book I wish I had liked, because I liked some of the characters, the writing was decent, and it promised to deliver a great yarn.

    The start of the story feels like there should be a book before this You re thrown into the middle of a conversation and action scene that refers to stuff that you should already know Then Chapter two you finally find out the stuff that you should have known in chapter one But then the rest of the bounces back and forth between two different story times until they finally catch up to each other.Great story for others but after reading the first 20% or so I decided I didn t want to continue Not that it s not an interesting or well written book, it s just was not going a direction I was interested in Very time travel technical and hadn t realized this was in the future I was hoping for archaeology exploration historical stuff.

    Intriguing space chase, sci fi time mysteryThe scientific, and logic information presented in this story are outstanding The near future technology, like holographic projection and hyper jets is real well described The characters are very engaging and the action us really gripping I got real MaCGyver vibe when the story arc focused on Nate and Jan and men in black sense with Ellis and Lauren The ending was really pulling me in, but the I felt the grand finale was a bit flat All in all a good read.

    About the worse book I ever read I was about half way through it and still could not figure out what was going on Apparently a scientist invented a way to send messages through time and the story was about government agents FBI trying to discover whether this was true Meanwhile other people were trying to blow up the international space station At the end of the book I STILL did not know what happened Very poor writing in my opinion.
