Don't miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.
Every hero, even the accidental ones, has a beginning. Silas' radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti's research has enough clout not to care until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can't alter time, and sometimes even being able to rub out a single mistake isn't enough....

I really tried to like this book
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
All of Kim's other work grabbed me within the first chapter -- and I've read them all. Out of loyalty to an author who has thoroughly entertained me, I bought this book and really, really tried to like it. The characters in her other books were people I could relate to, could understand, and liked, respected and/or disliked. I cared about what happened to them. The situations into which they were placed made sense. But after 4 hours of this book, I realized that I just didn't care about any of the characters, let alone what happened to them. They were flat and boring. The plot was convoluted. The narration was ... forgettable. I just couldn't listen any longer. Very sad.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?
Absolutely! Everyone is entitled to at least one dude. This was Kim's.
What three words best describe January LaVoy’s voice?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
You might want to resurrect The Hollows, Kim. Or create something at least as dynamic.

Adored The Hollows. Not so much this one.
I was so excited to get this. Unfortunately I had a devil of a time following it. All the skipping around. Heroine was not too engaging. I actually rewound multiple times and after awhile I just sort of stopped caring. I adore the idea, the concept. It lacked characters to care about and a sense of continuity or sequence. I am a huge Kim Harrison fan. This just didn't "catch" for me. Sorry.
