Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brother and sister bound to opposing factions, each fighting to preserve the balance of time - talk about sibling rivalry. But as Lex and Ember unearth the origins of their respective leaders they are forced to decide where their true loyalties lie. Authors, Ficklin and Jolley, have hammered out a clockwork tale filled with mystery, action, and alternate history. Once the gears of this book lock you into place, prepare to be EXTRACTED from the here and now, and thrust into a daring new world." ~ Judith Graves

"EXTRACTED presents a fascinating steampunk world jammed packed with cool gadgets, time travel, and romance--I was hooked from the first action-packed page to the last." -Renee Collins, author of RELIC

Kirkus Reviews
Steampunk and time travel combine to provide pizazz in this series opener about a long-lost royal brother and sister, the surviving Romanovs. Ficklin and Jolley handle the rather intricate plotline well, populating the time stream with interesting characters that pop up in various unexpected places. The steampunk scenario adds a great deal of zest to the proceedings, with top hats, leather corsets and a variety of steam-driven contrivances providing set dressing. Kids who pick it up won't encounter much real history, but they'll be reading it for fun anyway. (Steampunk. 12 & up)

Booklist
 Dual narratives keep the pace brisk and the tension high. While readers looking for technological details based on plausible science may be disappointed, there are enough corsets and gadgetry to satisfy even the biggest steampunk fans. Packed with hand-to-hand combat and mind-bending paradoxical conundrums, this quick, suspenseful read has a guaranteed audience.-- Summer Hayes

About the Author

                   
Sherry is a full time writer from Colorado where she lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and house guests. A former military brat, she loves to travel, eat exotic food, and meet new people. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she's on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is often only seen in blurry photographs.

In order to support his hobby of writing, Tyler decided to pursue dentistry. He graduated from Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in 2002. He then completed a four year residency at the University of Pennsylvania. In June 2006, he opened Jolley Smiles in Grand Junction, CO. Snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking, fly fishing, bird hunting, camping, hiking, and backpacking are the things he enjoys doing with his family. When life gets stressful he escapes to unseen worlds.

Extracted (The Lost Imperials Book #1) by Sherry Ficklin and Tyler Jolley is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. As you know, when you highly anticipate something for a long time it is really easy to be disappointed. Not the case here. I expected to be blown away, and well, I was. Extracted is super-fast paced, which made my slow reading both hard and TOTALLY the right thing to do. As hard as it was to put the book down after two chapters, doing so let me mull over what I had read before moving on. I found this particularly helpful because of the complexity of the intertwining story lines, the fun time travel, the exquisite details of the Steampunk elements, and the blow-by-blow fight scenes.

In Extracted, the two main characters are brother and sister ripped from time. It is written alternately from their points of view. While that is not uncommon, what makes this book so incredibly intriguing and such a fun read is that Ember and Lex's points of view are very clearly written by two different authors. Sherry wrote Ember and Tyler wrote Lex. Most co-authored stories read as if they are written by one person, while that is wonderful most of the time, I loved the fact that there was a clear difference in writing styles from chapter to chapter. It helped me sink deeper into each character, and made the whole experience more enjoyable.

I could go on and on, but really, I think you should read it yourself. Whether or not you are a fan of Young Adult Fiction (I'm very picky about what YA I will read and even pickier about what I like), I highly recommend Extracted, whether you are an adult or a teen. It has a bit of everything, time travel, awesome clothes, creepy dudes (I could explain, but spoilers!

By the time I picked this one up I was so ready for something different and fun and filled with steampunk. It has been way too long since I have read a good steampunk novel that I was seriously starting to have withdrawals.

I found something to ease my craving and more in Extracted. Jolley and Ficklin really are a dynamic duo. Throw in the steampunk factor and add in some time traveling along with some historic details and you have one heck of a ride that you won't want to get off from.

Jolley and Ficklin did a fabulous job with this action packed, non stop fun, debut novel. The characters are loveable and the changing point of views was so well done, they blended and meshed seamlessly. Each main character (and even the secondary characters) added an element to the story that wouldn't have been there otherwise. They felt fleshed out and tangible. I felt like I knew them and cared for them instantly.

The world building isn’t lacking either, it gives you just enough to answer those pesky questions that pop up along the ride and leave enough hints along the way that let you know there is so much more to the story than the first glance, so much more to be devoured and discovered.

How the Rifters work, The Hollows and the Telsa Institute were.. well, you really need to read this to find out all about them because it was so ingenious and creative how they all came together, how time travel all works and how memories are not something to take lightly and should never be forgotten that I can't even begin to explain it. How the things that hold their world together are unimaginable and so precious.

I was so excited to get my copy of “Extracted!” I couldn’t wait to delve into the world Sherry and Tyler created. And what a world it is! The world building in the book is incredible, so imaginative. Of course, knowing the authors, I expected no less. But I still wasn’t prepared for how involved it was. I felt like I was transported to different worlds with Lex and Ember.

The characters, though, were what I was really interested in. I was anxious to see how Sherry and Tyler’s writing combined into one cohesive story line. They both have their unique style and voice, but it is incredible how they meld together to make the characters just jump off the page. I was so impressed by how Sherry’s “Ember” and Tyler’s “Lex” were so obviously different, but how well they fit together at the same time. I can’t explain how well the two person/two character dynamic was done. As an author I was interested in how working with another author would translate on the page—Sherry and Tyler just nailed it. It’s just, wow!

The story is outstanding. Well thought out, fast paced, and bubbling with excitement. It’s one of the most original, imaginative, intricate stories I think I’ve read. I don’t even know how to review the book without giving away some important morsel of spoiler information. I think this is definitely a book you need to experience yourself…not have a reviewer summarize for you. But be warned—you will need to block out some time in your calendar because once you pick this book up, you aren’t going to leave it willing until you reach the last page….and then you’re going to start cursing like a sailor at last call, because, if you’re like me, you’ll want the second book in the series like, yesterday!
