Review ERASING TIME by C.J. Hill (Katherine Tegen Books, 2012)

From janetterallison.comIn this high-action and romantic futuristic adventure, there is no escape from the future for two contemporary girls pulled out of their own time.

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 twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The mob-like Dakine fights against the government, and somehow Taylor and Sheridan find themselves in the middle. The only way to elude them all is to trust 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.

Genre: Dystopian, Action-Adventure

Rating: ***** (Fantastic book that I loved!)
Review: I read a novella of Janette Rallison's a while ago, and when I saw that one of her YA novels written under her pen name C.J. Hill was on sale, I bought it. I knew it would be fun, the it promised to be pretty action packed too. I've read a lot (A LOT) of romance lately, so I wanted a change. I LOVED this book. So interesting and so in depth. I could tell that there was a lot of research done, and everything seemed so original, yet the future she created seemed like a totally natural progression from today. It was mind blowing and awesome.

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
