Much like Back to the Future Part 2, Josh returns to a world very different to the one he left. In this world someone accelerated the timeline for developing weapons by travelling back in time to teach people how to make guns. The present day has been marred by several nuclear wars and Josh's old gang are sick with radiation and living like homeless people in the wreckage of buildings while Caitlin and Dalton rule the country and have banned time travel.
As well as Back to the Future this book also reminded me of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it also reminded me of an episode of Stargate and the series Divergent by Veronica Roth. Which leads me to wonder, is it derivative or just exploring themes and questions raised by other dystopian and time travelling series? Oh, and there's a little bit of Star Wars thrown in for good measure.
Anyhoo, Josh tries to right the timeline but when he returns to the present he finds that the Colonel has disappeared, never seems to have existed.
The Order has become divided over an old manuscript which describes the Maelstrom — a chaotic realm filled with ancient gods that exists outside of the timestream. One faction believes that Josh will be the key to unlocking its power, the other that he needs to die to save them from oblivion.
Josh must find Caitlin and a way into the maelstrom, discover the author of the book and rewrite the prophecy.
This was enjoyable but totally confusing. What is a timestream? What is a continuum? What is so odd about being from the present? What on earth was going on? Why is Dalton so nasty? I feel like whoever it was that could believe six impossible things before breakfast, I'm not sure I truly understood what was going on - there was certainly enough action for at least five feature films!
So, I'm probably going to read the next one but I am a bit nervous as to where it is going ...
All in all it draws the reader in, which is what good writing is about.
