FIVE STAR REVIEWS
J.E. Rice for Amazon.co.uk
Aimed at a younger market than myself, did not diminish my enjoyment of this time travel story. Completed it in two sittings. Wish I could have done so in one for no other reason than it was gripping. The characters were well developed, which has to be the case in any good story. Very interesting storyline, which I will not attempt to divulge here but it kept me glued to my Kindle. Enough science but plenty of fiction to engage sci fi fans. The words jumped off the screen so I played the ‘movie’ of it in my mind perfectly. You will not be disappointed.
i would recommend it to anyone of any age who likes time travel, sci fi and a bloody great story. Off to read another book by the same author – Big Brother. I may be some time. In the meantime now you have read this click Buy and take yourself on an amazing journey.

I was drawn into this book from the first page. The story kept me wanting to know more every step of the way. I really wanted to know the ending; but on the other hand that meant finishing the book! An excellent all round read. I highly recommend this book. I will certainly be reading more by this talented author.

This is a face-paced adventure Young Adult time-slip adventure. There are plenty of thrills and spills and many curious and puzzling questions about time travel.
There is the intriguing questions of the link between epilepsy and temporal displacement – already explored to some extent in Debz Hobbs-Wyatt’s short story Jigsaw and Adam Rapp’s 33 Snowfish.
There is a good balance throughout of dialogue, description and action, though just occasionally a character speaks out of voice. The characters are on the whole likeable and rounded, – even the “baddies”. The story arc is satisfying and the resolution works. This is perhaps particularly more so because Morait has drawn on the archetypal Oedipus story. Travis falls in love with his mother and kills his father.
On the whole, the novel is extremely well crafted though one more edit may have benefited it well. Nevertheless, a good read.

Although older than the target age group, I bought this book after reading the ‘search inside’ and wanting to know what happened next. It’s an ideal length for the target audience, not too long to be boring, but long enough to tell a cracking good yarn. It held my interest to the end with plenty of twists in the plot and with a complex enough story to keep you thinking all the way through. I love time-shift stories, and this one was no exception.

I received a copy to review and took it with me while waiting for my wife to have her eyes tested. 45 minutes later, she nudged me and pulled me back from an amazing world created by Tracey Morait. I finished the book in three one-hour sittings and was amazed at the quality. This is an excellent book, not only for young adults, but for adults who enjoy reading in the YA genre. The plot theme, time travel caused by seizures experienced by Travis, the protagonist, could easily have come unraveled. Instead it is the center of a riveting nonstop action tale which ends in a very satisfying manner. I will be happy to add it to our collection at the Hartland Public Library where I’ll be suggesting it to a number of patrons.
