Echo in Time (Erasing Time #2) by C.J. Hill

My Copy: Paperback, 387 pages
Publication Date: December 23, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Source: Library
Genre: Dystopian | Science Fiction | Young Adult

Echo in Time delivers on “the possibility of an equally thrilling sequel” (Kirkus Reviews) to Erasing Time.

After being pulled 400 years into the future, twins Taylor and Sheridan have found some refuge from the government of Traventon, which used the dangerous Time Strainer to yank the girls from the past. Yet the threat of the dangerous technology still looms. Taylor and an ally, Joseph, are selected to go on a mission to destroy the time machine and weapon. But their actions before they do may have major consequences for the future and the past.

My Review

What you’re in for: Jealousy. Computer science. Twins (x2). Time travel. Death. Second chances. Changes to the past. People from the 21st century living in a futuristic Dystopian society.

The ending: Wrapped up nicely. I’m left wondering if there is a third book, or if this is a duology. Anyone know??

Am I glad I read it? Yes. The first book made me a big fan of this unique take on a Dystopian story. How often do we get to read about characters from our current society living in a Dystopian society? Never. Until Erasing Time.
I do think that the first book was better than this one.  I found this book to be a bit slow and drawn out at times. I wasn’t fully captivated by the story and, at times, found myself bored. But, I am glad that I read it. It picked up at the end.
It did aggravate me just how many grammatical errors I noticed while reading this book. That always irks me, especially when it’s a well-known publisher like Katherine Tegen Books.
