Rewrite Redemption by J.H. Walker: Review


Rewrite Redemption by J.H. Walker
Publication date: January 25th 2013
Genres: Science Fiction, Time-Travel, Young Adult


She’s sixteen. He’s seventeen. They don’t know each other…at least not yet.

She has a secret and her whole life revolves around keeping it. Every few months and with little warning, she simply disappears, pulled into the past for hours or even days. She’s terrified it will happen in front of someone, changing her life forever. So far, the only witnesses have been her parents, and that didn’t end well. She has no control over it and no idea why it happens to her.

She wants answers.

He has answers—at least he understands what’s going on. He has a secret, too. He’s part of an organization that goes back in time to rewrite reality. But he also has a problem. He broke the organization’s number-one rule by altering his own timeline. As punishment, he’s been blocked from time travel, which is most unfortunate. Because the changes he made to his timeline, accidentally resulted in disaster for his family. A disaster he’s now prevented from repairing. No one can travel beneath the organization’s radar except a Shadow. But they’re rare, so rare he’s never even met one.

Then he moves to her town.

This book just blew me away!  It is absolutely, without a doubt, one of my favorite books for 2013.  Fast paced, with believable characters that I fell in love with, and an amazing story and structure that left me in awe of this author’s storytelling abilities.  There is action, mystery, and a plausible premise that I was totally caught up in. 

This is a long book at over 7509 kindle locations.  Often longish books make me a bit leery because I fear they are not as tightly edited as they could be – often resulting in a book with a saggy middle.  I did not encounter a dull moment, or a wasteful scene that I felt did not help move the story along to what turned out to be a totally awesome, superbly satisfying ending.

The author states in the endnotes there is also a sequel in the works.  I am most grateful and will eagerly await its release! 

This book was provided to me without charge in exchange for my honest review.
