⭐⭐⭐⭐·5 WTF Stars!!
Em is locked in a bare, cold cell with no comforts. Finn is in the cell next door. The Doctor is keeping them there until they tell him what he wants to know. Trouble is, what he wants to know hasn’t happened yet.
Em and Finn have a shared past, but no future unless they can find a way out. The present is torture – being kept apart, overhearing each other’s anguish as the Doctor relentlessly seeks answers. There’s no way back from here, to what they used to be, the world they used to know. Then Em finds a note in her cell which changes everything. It’s from her future self and contains some simple but very clear instructions. Em must travel back in time to avert a tragedy that’s about to unfold. Worse, she has to pursue and kill the boy she loves to change the future.
This one is going to be really difficult to review as it is a complete mind f**k!
So we 1st meet Em, she is in a cell and has been tortured horribly by “The Doctor”. In the cell next door is a boy called Fin, even though they have not seen each other they have a very strong connection, and she knows that she loves him.
Em manages to escape her cell and with Fin in tow they make there way to “Cassandra” a time machine, and is whisked into the future to escape the Doctors clutches.
We then meet Marina, she is a typical teenage girl, with a crush on James next door.
James is older than her, but they have been best friends for years, James is super clever and has passed all of his exams etc. 3 years before everyone else and has a very important job.
James’ s best friend and the bane of Marina’s life is Fin Abbot……………yes I know what you are thinking.
The story flips back and forth between Em and Marina, slowly piecing a puzzle together, until you realise that Em, Marina and Fin are somewhat of a mystery!
She hates him in one life and loves him in another……how?? And who the hell is “The Doctor”?
Well that would just be a spoiler now wouldn’t it !!
🎧🎧 Great narration by Meredith Mitchell who really played each character brilliantly, and didn’t make it confusing, that would have been really difficult to understand an already confusing book 😱
A very enjoyable 4•5☆ debut read.
Get those heads scratching!
