As I said, I like time travel and this is a fun one, the characters actually spend a little more time figuring out time travel and the way that it works in this science view (and I like they way it is handled).
The other side of the story is the college-aged heroines of the story, how they handle the crises/problems that they get involved in (and sometimes create).
Time travel is amazing and they use it in some pretty unique ways.
You could start with this novel (book 2) if you had to but I recommend starting with book 1 A Thief in Time.
I like this book better than book 1, so if you read that one (and for some reason wasn't excited) and you are hesitant to read the next one then jump on in since it's better than the first.
I was so excited to get A Flight In Time to review. Cidney Swanson is one of my favorite Young Adult writers. Come to find out she lives in a nearby Oregon town. She's lucky I don't have a car! And that I have social anxiety that keeps me from seeking out people I don't know. Still, her Saving Mars series is my favorite series for young adults and up. I wish she could write more of those as it really helps the me I was as a pre-teen/teen. There was very little out there in the sci-fi realm that had strong female leads. Please read the series if you get the chance. Her Rippler series is good, too.
But back to A Flight in Time (book 2). Here is a comment I made under A Thief in Time (book 1):
Oops, somehow I am reading book two that isn't on GoodReads yet. Maybe I should see if I got it? I am 37% into A Flight in Time. Now I feel confused as to what to do.
Then I realized that at one point or another I did get book 1. It was $.99 at the time. Somehow it got marked "Read" so I never saw it in my "Currently Reading" shelf. So I stopped reading book 2 and started reading book 1. This series may soon rival Mars in favorites!
A Thief In Time is very exciting. The main character, Halley, is quite the character. I love the depth of spirit she shows in spite of a less than ideal upbringing. Ms. Swanson built her so well that I felt she was real. I love her friends and how it is they found themselves in the enviable position of having access to a time machine.
By the way, I love the names of the characters. Good nods to science!
I want to put more here but I don't want anything to spoil a future reader's experience with that book or the next.
So, those who follow my reviews know how I hate cliffhangers. This was not that. But awfully close. No one was left in danger. But I was so in love with the characters and the time travel adventures that I was so happy I had the next book downloaded and ready to go.
Since I can't find the place to review book 2, A Flight in Time, I will put it here and move this part to that book when it is live on GoodReads. Right now it is $.99 on Amazon whereas book 1 is $3.99. Both are well worth the money!
I will give this five stars also. My biggest problem was the names when I read #2 first. After getting to know everyone in #1 I still had that problem. I expected to see a little more about Halley and her life. So it was a bit of a shock to start reading about her friend, Jillian. Her life wasn't as interesting or as full of challenges, as far as I was concerned, but she has a sciencey mind and is working towards her own goals. That warmed me to her.
I must admit that I couldn't quit reading this book--another 4 AM sleep time. The book was full of anxious moments, 'how were they going to get out of this?' kinds of questions sailed through my head. And lots of time travel!
AND that ending!!!! I can't wait to find out the resolve for that. Still, not a cliffhanger. Just a little something to have Cidney Swanson fans waiting with bated breath!!!
