Two opposing factions of time travelers vie for control of the future in this thrilling steampunk series opener dubbed “Interesting” and “Unexpected” by Kirkus Reviews.
Lex and Ember—two time travelers with no memories of their lives before being recruited into the time war—are torn between the factions. When Lex accepts a mission that lands him deep within the heart of the Telsa Institute, he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen from them comes flooding back. Now armed with the truth of who they were, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them once again.
I received this book free from Netgalley for an honest review. This is a steampunk, sci fi, thriller book that just didn’t hold my interest. The idea is unique and written out well. We get to see both sides of the story as the tale unfolds. Maybe that is where my interest was lost. I like it written in a single point of view or in a third person point of view. Not having it go back and forth since I usually feel like I am missing something. However, that is a person opinion. So if you enjoy Steampunk books and don’t mind going back and forth on point of views I would recommend this book. It is tremendously written. It will keeps you wanting to find out more about what is going on with the two main characters.
