A new dystopian novel from the author of Jenny Pox – coming July 26.
In J.L. Bryan’s version of the future, the United States is ruled by a dictatorship, the cities are war zones with armed forces battling rebels. This is the life Raven knows, trained since she was a child to fight. It is from this future that Raven travels back in time to change history.
The book starts with Raven appearing along a highway in 2013, she is disoriented and suffering from loss of memory, but she knows she doesn’t belong here because everything seems ‘wrong’. Almost immediately agents from her own time show up to try to kill her. As she regains her memories and uses information she has from the future, she realizes she is in this time period to change the future.
While there is plenty of action in the beginning of the book, it evens out. We follow Raven as she marvels at how different this world is from hers and realizes exactly what has to happen to bring about the desired changes. There are no big plot twists here but a solid plot line that heats up when necessary.
The action was easy to follow and there were no WTF? or huh? moments. What happens to Raven when she changes history is dealt with in a way that actually kind of made sense. As much as science fiction and fantasy can make sense. I would recommend this book. It is different from Jenny Pox, as much as two people are different but the same solid story telling is here as was in Jenny Pox.
