When I first learned of this book I thought it was pretty amazing that two people on opposite sides of the planet, had the same basic idea. A time travel idea. I'm not entirely sure how I came up with my idea but honestly it's the best one I felt I could start with. Hopefully my follow up novels will make me feel just as elated. This book however, the one that's not mine, is probably one of my favourite novels that I have read this year.
Cassandra Wright is a Timewalker – a teenager with a genetic mutation that allows her to manipulate the flow of time. But her inexplicable powers have made her a target for Adjusters – monstrous assassins from a parallel universe.
Saved from almost certain death, Cassie is pulled into a secret agency sworn to defend our timeline against these threats: the Bureau of Temporal Integrity, Monitoring, and Execution. Cassie’s life soon becomes entwined with Shaun Briars – a reckless Timewalker with an alluring smile and dark suspicions about the Bureau itself.
When Cassie and Shaun cross into the parallel universe, they discover a world in the grips of nuclear winter, with a new war threatening to spill over into our universe. With time running out, they must learn the true history of Timewalkers, confront the unforgivable crimes of their future selves, and defy their own fate to save two worlds.
This cover is the perfect combination of simplicity and eye-catching. While there may not be a lot to look at it definitely is very intriguing. The blurb totally captivated my attention, and made me have this need to read the book.
The action throughout the book was insatiable and left you speechless at every turn. When you got answers to questions you had there were also more questions that needed answering. The bad guys, are the best kind of bad guys because you don't know who they are. Every chapter made you change your mind a root for different characters.
This book is the perfect beginning to a series and I cannot wait to read the next title in the series. I know this review is short and sweet but it has to be because I am so speechless.
