I loved the author's first book Timebound and read it on my kindle. I had some issues with that book but let those issues go because I got a really great and interesting story.
I wished the narrator had a greater range playing different characters. It was the male voices that seemed very one-dimensional. Luckily one male character had an Irish accent so you could tell it was him, but for all the other men, the female narrator, seemed to only have one voice for all men.
Unfortunately for me, I'm a middle aged married woman who works in the history field and lives in Washington, DC. There is more of a romance, where our young heroine gets the attention of two hot guys and it is more of the story than in the last book. I'm not really into romances. Though the book is set in the DC metro area, I don't think it really captures the sections of the area it is set. But then again many writers never do get it right. As an adult, I found a few of the supposedly adult characters immature. I probably could have enjoyed it more if I turned my brain off.
Overall, it was a decent time travel book and the series is still looking promising. I didn't find the different time lines confusing, and despite the other issues I have with the characters, aspects of the story and the narrator, listening was enjoyable enough to pass the time.

Would you try another book from Rysa Walker and/or Kate Rudd?
Maybe....I enjoyed the first one Timebound....so I would give benefit of the doubt and try them again.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Disgusted. I did not feel I had a decent feeling of closure. I felt I was duped into having to read the next installment due to the cliffhanger.
After the first book I felt it was a finished story but hoped it would continue as it was well written and I enjoyed the characters. But...this time...I felt manipulated....ending was not good....just a feeling of 'haha you have to read on'. Not cool.
What three words best describe Kate Rudd’s performance?
I have heard worse....but I have heard better. The female voices are well done....but the male voices are lacking. Except for Keiren who has an Irish accent...all of the male characters sound exactly alike. Please....mix it up a little....stretch yourself and try something new to fix this. Other ladies have done it successfully....no reason why you can't.
Could you see Time's Edge being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
If Hunger Games and Twilight can be...surely there is room for this story.
Any additional comments?
So much good to this story. I enjoyed it sooooo very much. I feel the ending robbed me of my delight in the overall book.
