Publisher's Summary

The Cyrists are swiftly moving into position to begin the Culling, and Kate's options are dwindling. With each jump to the past or the future, Kate may trigger a new timeline shift. Worse, the loyalties of those around her - including the allegiances of Kiernan and the Fifth Column, the shadowy group working with Kate - are increasingly unclear.
Kate will risk everything, including her life, to prevent the future her grandfather and the Cyrists have planned. But, when time runs out, it may take an even bigger sacrifice to protect the people she loves.

I have mixed feelings about this one.

If you’ve listened to books by Rysa Walker before, how does this one compare?

I'm sad to say I enjoyed the other two books much, much more than this one. It wasn't by any means bad. I did like it. It just...wasn't as good. There are SO many time jumps in this story, a lot of them in back and forth fashion (some of them with two Kates at a time), and lots of going over plans and lots of time travel/timeline shift technicalities that it became a little overwhelming and confusing. I kept asking myself questions (as I listened) about things that didn't make sense to me, but it felt like a chore to try and understand it all. I tried to ignore that and just enjoy the book as I have done in the past with the other two books, but this time around it wasn't as easy.


Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, she's the best. Love her.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. During several tension filled scenes, I was definitely glued to the car seat. But I am surprised to say that I often had to pause it for later because I would be confused or overwhelmed with action plan details and/or time jumps; it felt like my brain needed a break so I would listen to music instead.


Any additional comments?

The end of this series wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked. The final confrontation with Saul is, without giving away spoilers, not what you would expect and very anticlimactic. I guess it's a twist in the story, the way it pans out, and I suppose you could say it's a clever twist, but it just wasn't satisfying. There is also one major twist in the story that didn't jive with me, although that's just my own personal opinion. I can't really say what it is otherwise I'll spoil it for y'all, but it felt like a convenient twist in order for somebody to have their happy ending. That was one of the technicalities that I didn't quite understand how it was possible.

But overall, I still enjoyed the story and it was interesting to see Kate travel to the future for the first time. I also have to admit that I love the characters and I am glad most of them got a happy-ish ending. I even shed a few bittersweet tears at the end when Kate receives an old, photo album of a certain someone's life.

mediocrity that isn't temporal.

It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good either. I feel like the story could have ended in the last book. This book barely added anything to the story. I found myself bored with the characters and bored with the plot. the first book was definitely the most interesting.
