"A timey-wimey, full-barrel adventure novel that also teaches a non-ironic lesson in American civics...[featuring] an epithet-wielding, pistol-packing heroine that will capture hearts."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
"Lively, likeable, and wonderfully amusing."
--Publishers Weekly (starred)
"A fun, almost sweet sci-fi thriller...[our heroes] visit different periods of American history and continue to narrowly escape danger, all while exchanging sassy comebacks. For fans of Ernest Cline."
"Always entertaining. . . . the action is swift and the faceless agents suitably chilling.”
“One cool novel. It has time travel and murders and faceless villains (I mean that literally) and I have a crush on the heroine. If the Tardis were a Model A Ford, this might be Doctor Who meets National Treasure.”
—F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of the Repairman Jack series
“A fast and resonant time-travel thriller and tour of America, bursting with fun ideas.”
—Django Wexler, author of the Shadow Campaigns novels
“So good you'll want to invent time travel and send a copy back to yourself, just so you can read it again for the first time. A tour de force."
—Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author of The Darwin Elevator

A young boy from a small town becomes fascinated by a beautiful but unusual woman whom he meets as she is passing through on a search for some kind of treasure. When he realizes she's being followed, he tries to catch up with her and warn her. Before long he is caught up in her search and is in the same danger that she was. It turns out that her search takes her through the history of America and the unlikely object of her search is nothing less than the American Dream.
Without giving too much away I'll just say that the mechanisms of time travel in this story are unique, and they're tied up with a vision of the history of America. It's an interesting twist, and the novel is an enjoyable read. It's easy to follow, and while the overall plot is fairly generic it has enough twists to keep the reader guessing. It does turn out, in the end, that much of their search had been a wild goose chase. Still, it all comes to a satisfying conclusion. A fun quick read.
How do I describe it without spoilers? hm. The American Founding Fathers gave us more than a dream. They gave us a Dream. A real one. But it has been lost...And if something important gets lost in time, someone needs to find it.
In this story, Eli Teague lives in a small town that literally never seems to change. It still has a video shop that rents VHS tapes. There's no internet here, no computers. And Eli wants more than anything to escape...but he stays. He stays because he has met a strange traveler, driving an antique car, and he has met this traveler three times, years apart. There's something about this traveler that calls to him.
The traveler is being chased by strange, faceless men who, for some reason, can avoid being noticed by most people. Eli sees them, though, and that's going to be a problem, for them and for him.
And I won't give any more details, except to say that this is a setup for a road-trip to end all road-trips, through time and space, meeting many wonderful people and searching for a lost dream.
If you're waiting to pre-order, don't wait. Go ahead. You're going to love this tale!
If you are looking for fun, well written science fiction, this fills the bill.
