Publisher's Summary

Future Tense, the sequel to Time Will Tell, picks up the story 20 years later in 2022. The blue-collar world of Vito, the youngest son of Clem Rizzoli, is turned upside down when he learns of his father's top-secret, heroic past. The revelations lead him to meet and team up with Victoria, a CIA operative with a pair of extraordinarily gifted teenage twins. Vito impulsively adopts siblings with terminal cancer. These children are granted special powers, too, by the Defender when he returns to Earth to correct his mistake of years earlier. Together, they all fight a corrupted Russia, rogue nuclear threats, an impending Ice Age, and the return of evil aliens bent on Earth's enslavement.

Fabulous creativity

Would you consider the audio edition of Future Tense to be better than the print version?

I like all three formats of books: audio, paperback and Kindle. That said, I prefer audio books nowadays as I have more to do and less time to do it.

What did you like best about this story?

Future Tense takes place in the near future . The combination of a possible future with a fantasy element worked together beautifully and I liked being given a glimpse of a world which I may come to experience, myself. I've read all three books in Eddie Upnick's trilogy ( Future Tense being book 2 ). The trilogy tells an amazing story over the course of several generations. The fast paced action will keep all readers interested in every word.

Which scene was your favorite?

So many, it's hard to choose. However, Jake opening the Galactic Book of Knowledge, and Vito's "High Noon" moment with a Kraz killer in central Africa were my favorites..

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The kids - Jake and Lola - being so serene when they were threatened by the Russian surgeon who was about to operate on their brains and their rescue.

Any additional comments?

Future Tense is a fast and entertaining read. My family felt these books would make amazing graphic novels. I see four movies in these three books.

A Great Listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I enjoyed this book so much when I was listening to it in the car that I missed my exit! The book was filled with action and adventure---and it was skillfully narrated.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Future Tense?

When Vito rescued the remaining souls from the planet Saskia by entering another dimension.

Which scene was your favorite?

Same as above.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, see first entry.
