Ethan knows Prenna - not from the now, but from the past. When he meets up with her, he knows there's something special about her but doesn't pressure Prenna to tell the truth. Instead, he accompanies her on her mission to save the future.
I really liked the building of the relationship between Prenna and Ethan. However, with Prenna being on this super huge time relevant mission, I really felt that all of their side detours really took away from the urgency of what she was trying to do. It felt like there were two different stories happening within one plot.
Definitely a different style that I'm used to seeing from Branshares, but not a bad one. I did like it and I am interested in what happens next with these characters.
I really love how the book set up the premise that no future is perfect for everybody. One future led to environmental ruin and another led to financial ruin. That we, as a people, are so spoiled now but how quickly it can spin out of control. There is a delicate balance between everything and even a single person (or their loss) can tip that balance over the edge.
What I really loved was the storyline of suppression. The people from the future are suppressed not only by the leaders that have come with them but also by the rules in which they are to live by. By the end of the novel the yolk of suppression is thrown off completely but then they are saddled with it once again.
The plot was, at time, somewhat messy, but that's expected when dealing with time travel. The ending leads me to believe that there will be a sequel.
There was no wow factor in this story, alittle adventure and some romance, but nothing that made you excited about picking it back up when its time to read again.
