Time travel, Love, Escape, and Death all wrapped into a gripping tale
What an exciting book! Identical twins, Taylor and Sheridan get abducted into the 25th century. Lots of things have changed in the future and defiantly not for the good. Echo and his dad Jeth are "wordsmiths" who studied and fluently speak the English version of the 21st century. They are called in to help the scientist figure out what went wrong from the two girls. The Time machine made the mistake and brought two teenage girls instead of the scientist they were searching for. Echo's twin Joseph was recently killed by the evil Dakine’s group who has more power and control than the government. Echo is ready to escape but his plans change as he becomes attached to Sheridan and wants to help her. Taylor who is the genius of the twins comes up with a dangerous plan to destroy the time machine, hoping to prevent anyone else from experiencing the same terrible fate of being stuck in the future. They have to do this and escape before the government erases their memory and installs a tracking device.
C.J. Hill's word-play was spectacular. With the slang we use today the girls were able to disguise what they were planning. It was hilarious to see through the eyes of those in the future how ridiculous those sayings really are. The story kept you wondering, who was bad? Who could they trust? How would they ever return home? The conclusion was nail-biting to the very end. A must read, not only for Sci-Fi fans but those who enjoy a good love story.
