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

What I Loved:

The world building in this book is simply flawless. From the evolved language to the setting to the customs of a society 400 years in the future, every single second felt absolutely believable to me. I really appreciated that the author put so much thought into her world. It was also fun to see the people in the future fail to understand all the strange slang and idioms we use freely now. The dystopian-ness of the setting also felt natural and authentic, and though we get just a hint of what's outside the city's walls, I hope future books explore that further!

I also enjoyed the plot. There were lulls here and there, but overall, this book kept me thoroughly interested and moved along at a pretty fast pace. There are secrets, misunderstandings, danger, betrayal, and sacrifice--pretty awesome ingredients for a compelling plot.

What Left Me Wanting More:

The romance just didn't do it for me until the very end of the book. It felt super rushed, very uneven, and I just didn't feel that insta-love connection the characters seemed to feel. I also felt that the information about secrets and background and clues was delivered unevenly. Sometimes a bombshell would be rushed and sort of glossed over, and sometimes it felt like we were treading endlessly in the "I can't tell you anything so just trust me even though we just met" cycle, and that got a bit tedious at times.

Verdict:

Erasing Time is a compelling story set in a fascinating future world. Readers who love adventure over romance, or who don't mind waiting a long time for pieces to fall into place, will really enjoy this. I know I'm looking forward to reading the sequel!

You know how when a book is good, like really good, you completely stop the rest of your life for it?
Like instead of grocery shopping or looking for a job, you just sit on the swing outside and read. And the weather is wonderful and you could be relaxing in the pool, but you’d rather sit beside the pool and dive into a book like your life depends on it.
Yeah, this is totally that book.
I completely forgot the environment around me and was thrown into Erasing Time. It took some time to get the feel for the book. Third person POV always distracts me! Ugh, I don’t know what my problem with it is, but I don’t enjoy reading it.
However, once the action and adventure started, I was hooked. Line and sinker.
There are constant twists and happenings. Once I would decide that this was that, I was immediately proved wrong.
Surprises. Everywhere.
Shocking surprises that made me grin, laugh, and cry all at the same time!

So yeah, this turned out to be way better than I expected. Great character development, great sci-fi adventures. Dystopian is becoming my new favorite craving.
