I totally loved the society. It had many of the familiar Dystopian elements while having a unique trend and feel to it! It wasn't overdone either. It was right and good and awesome. :) YAY dystopia. So we have these twins with two different personalities and all of a sudden they are whisked away into the future. Then they learn they can't get back. YIKES. Panic time. Sheridan and Taylor find themselves in a pretty twisty predicament with no easy way out.
I wish I could spill my guts about things, but alas, no. Let me just say that I liked the realistical reaction of the girls, and thatI was easy to connect with Sheridan. I really wish Taylor had gotten her own POV moments, because she'd have a CRAZY GENIUS voice. YAY! But even without her, I still loved her character and getting to know her.
Echo..you are the riddle, wrapped in a mystery.You're hot, and full of secrets. You've got an interesting voice. Yet, as a romantic interest...you move to fast! That was my main issue with the romance. Obv, it's Insta-Attraction. But it was still fast to when they Kiss. After that I didn't feel as much development or their characters and relationship, something I totally love. So while that could've been showed more, I don't condemn them. They're gonna be so great in the next book!
The plot was MAGNIFIQUE! Secrets, logic, genius brains, smart problem solving, BETRAYAL, ack ack ack. YES. One thing I found really interesting was how she used Religious phrases/names as a Code. No, I'm not telling you anything else.Read more ›
Erasing Time is a thrilling, science fiction tale that both young adults and adults will enjoy.
With plenty of suspense, mystery, drama, and a bit of romance this well-paced story was impossible to put down. I enjoyed every bit of the interesting characters, unique dystopic future, and intense and exciting plot. This is definitely one of my favorite reads this year. The events and suspense builds to a pulse-pounding conclusion that left me satisfied, yet not wanting it to end. There is a great potential for sequels, and I certainly hope to see more from this future world. Don't miss this one.
But their very first attempt to find the scientist, Tyler Sherwood, has failed. Instead they've brought two time-riders to them, Sheridan and Taylor Bradford. Identical twins. And they have no way of sending them back to the twenty-first century.
Trapped. Unfamiliar with the language and customs of the twenty-fifth century, they must rely upon Jeth and Echo, two wordsmiths - historians - who have studied their century, to keep them safe.
Safe from the scientists who would seek to wipe their minds of all knowledge of their failed attempt. Safe from the Dakine rebels who would seek to capture them and use them against the government. Safe from the Vikers who would kill them without a moment's pause.
And safe from the government who would never allow free-thinking and un-trackable visitors from another time to roam free.
With no way of returning home and no one else who seems willing to help, they'll have to put their trust in Echo. Even if it means ignoring the fact that he has been keeping secrets. Even though he has a dark and mysterious past. Even if he hasn't always told the truth. And even if his motives for helping them are suspect.
Because without his help, their chances at surviving in a future that's almost as alien to them as being on another planet are almost non-existent.
ERASING TIME is a clever, engaging and immensely entertaining story set in a future where the government keeps a tight leash on its citizens, where your actions are monitored, your beliefs are restricted and your ranking is what determines your worthiness.Read more ›
I rarely read adult science fiction, especially dystopian novels, but I do occasionally read books of that type if they are written as teen novels, and especially if the YA author is someone whose work I greatly enjoy. C.J. Hill AKA Janette Rallison is one of those authors. Under her own name of Rallison, she has written many hilarious, YA, romantic comedies. In contrast, her fantasy/sci fi novels written under the Hill pseudonym are thrilling dramas with only occasional comic relief, as is the case with this book.
Whether the novel is comedy or drama, one thing a reader can count on from Rallison are stories of great emotional depth with the very moving theme of healing and redemption. As a result, her books invariably produce the much coveted response in readers of, "I laughed, I cried, I sighed." Before I read this book, I considered Hill/Rallison one of the most talented YA authors writing today, and this book has only reinforced that opinion. I consider every book she's written for young adults, as well as this one, a "keeper."
Hill/Rallison does an outstanding job of characterization in this book. Her main characters and important secondary characters are strongly and convincingly drawn, and Echo and Sheridan are quite sympathetic.Read more ›
