It's 1984 and the only things on Prudence Pierce's mind are seducing her violin instructor and, with the help of her sister Deborah, avoiding the wrath of their mother for stepping out of the house dressed like Madonna. Her mother might also be a teensy bit angry about the medallion Pru swiped from the attic - a medallion that glows lime green and has an oddly hypnotic, holographic effect when Pru holds it in her hand.
A simple blink is all it takes to yank Pru from the car with her dad into a world of hurt. She awakens in 2305 to find herself pinned under what's left of CHRONOS headquarters, thanks to a recent terrorist attack. Their prime suspect? Her mother, Katherine Shaw. And everyone wants to know how Pru got her hands on a CHRONOS key.
Pru is convinced that the key is the answer to all her problems. She'll use it to stop her mother, fix her relationship with Deb, and even restore CHRONOS, so that her new friend Tate can return to the job he loves.
She can't do it alone, however. Fortunately, she finds Saul Rand, and he's more than willing to help.

I love these books, the characters are so real. I know from personal experiance Saul is SPOT ON the abuser personality. Prus story is so heart breaking, and real, its hard to see her as a villan after this. Rysa Walker is an amazing story teller. Ive never loved a set of books more then I love hers. this is deffinately a good read. What makes these books extra special is theres never any contradictions. Each book and novella fit into the the others flawlessly, and only add to your understanding.
Pru is complicated, crazy and a little bit like Kate which makes her story so compelling. Shes almost an alternate Kate. Its pretty awesome.
Kate Rudd is the best at doing guy voices, they arent as painful to listen to as other women narrators, and she is consistant with the differences in her female characters voices which is also awesome. I wish she could narrate every book I get, and I have even been known to get a book just because shes on it.

An interesting perspective
The story was relatively short, compared to most of the books I listen to. I think I might have just had enough of the Chronos Files, so I'm glad I listened to it, but I definitely wouldn't listen to it again.
I think this book gave us a unique perspective on Pru, which did help you understand her better, but I realize now, that it was information that I would have been just as content without.
