Publisher's Summary

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 25th-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The same government has implanted tracking devices in the citizens, limiting and examining everything they do. Taylor and Sheridan have to find a way out of the city before the government discovers their secrets. To complicate matters, the mob-like Dakine has interest in getting hold of them, too. The only way for the girls to elude their pursuers is to put their trust in 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 IT'S ABOUT
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.

MY TAKE
I didn't know what to expect from this book, not having read the blurb. I received the audiobook from a drawing. The narrator did a good job. It surprised me a little at first that he had an English accent since the two girls are from Tennessee, but it worked really well since they were pulled 400 years into the future.

And what a future. An ultra-controlled society in a closed city. A place where the people are taught that all animals are dead, killed by the people in our time. Sheridan and Taylor are fortunate to be initially put in the care of two historians, Echo and his father Jeff. But then the complications and manipulations begin, and the girls start wondering who they can trust. Echo is a complicated character.

Just when the story started feeling a little like a treadmill where the girls were moving but not seeming to get anywhere, things burst open and things turn a little crazy.

The story has some nice twists. Most I figured out ahead of time, but one--wow. I totally didn't see that coming. Well done!

The book does have religious references (the girls are daughters of a minister, after all, and find themselves in a society where religion is banned), but I didn't find it preachy. It's also the beginning of a series, so while there's resolution for their situation at the moment, the story is obviously not finished. I look forward to reading the next book.

4 1/2 stars.

Mesmerizingly Amazing

Couldn't stop listening!!! Between the clever story full of unexpected twists and mind blowing turns, and the skillfully done voice acting, I just had to know how it ended!!! I love the characters, and found my self routing for them from the very beginning. The end was beyond anything I could imagine! I don't know how to write about all the things I absolutely adored in this book without giving massive spoilers, so I encourage everyone reading my review to just dig into this book already. So worth it!!!
