Erasing Time
In this high-action and romantic futuristic adventure, there is no escape from the future for two contemporary girls pulled out of their own time.

When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that’s so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can’t go back home.

The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The moblike Dakine fights against the government, and somehow Taylor and Sheridan find themselves in the middle. The only way to elude them all is to trust Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.

Full of adrenaline-injected chases and heartbreaking confessions, Erasing Time explores the strength of the bonds between twins, the risks and rewards of trust, and the hard road to finding the courage to fight for what you believe in.


I am quickly becoming a big fan of sci-fi and action thriller books. Which is beyond shocking to me. I seriously thought that NEVER would happen to me! Add that to the fact that I have always been fascinated by stories of twin's and this book was a total must read for me!

This review is really challenging for me, because I have really mixed views on it. While I love dystopian, sci-fi and time travel, (which this book has all 3 of!) it fell really flat for me. I was literally forcing myself to read this one. Normally I can finish a book in 2 or 3 days. This one took me over a week! Not because it was difficult to understand or hard to follow, simply because I had to force myself to read it.

Again, the plot itself had the markings for something really epic that would be a serious contender for my fave read of 2012. For me though, the plot somehow just didn't transfer onto the written page. It was slow, boring, and I really had to make myself finish it. In fact, if I weren't borrowing this one from a friend, I probably wouldn't have finished it at all.

Now here's where the mixed feelings come in. Around the last 60 pages the book really picked up and I really got into it! I wish the 300 pages before it had been more like it! But sadly they were not, and then...it ended. *sighs* So you can see my dilema! Right? It almost felt like 2 completely different books smushed together.

All in all I didn't enjoy this one, it was a little too slow paced for me. However, the ending of the book was much better for me, and I am curious about where the author will take this story in the next book!

  2. It's too bad that it took so long for this book to really capture you. I hate it when it takes forever to get into a book. It sounds interesting, but I have been hearing a lot of mixed things about it. I may eventually get to it, but I'm not a rush. Great honest review!

  3. Well, atleast your review is honest. You know, I've noticed an influx of reviews about twin books. I wonder where the fascination is coming from.

  4. I haven't heard of this one! And I agree with Kat that there seem to be lots of books about twins and doubles.

    And I agree with you that some of the dystopian books I've been reading lately have fallen a little flat.

  7. I like you honest review. The synopsis sounds fascinating- so I am sorry to hear that it took so long to get into. I really like the time travel aspect of this book. I will have to think about this one. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I've seen this around and it looks interesting and I love the cover, but I've heard mixed reviews on it. I'm not sure if I will read it. If I do it will probably be if I ever happen upon it at the library.

    Thanks for your awesome honest review!
