Timelapse by Lorrie Farrelly

13502710

Blurb: The accidental death of his beloved wife sent Alex Morgan into a numbing world of suppressed grief and rage, eased only by a profound bond with his son. Suddenly his life is shattered again when a chance discovery propels him into a world gone horribly, terrifyingly wrong.

Piecing together clues in this new nightmare, Alex suspects a colleague of taking a few, meddling steps back in time, changing the course of history – destroying Alex’s family and his world. Desperately clinging to his sanity, he searches for any evidence his young son still exists.

Jessica O’Neil is fighting a nightmare of her own, captured and facing execution for freedom-fighting heroics in her grim, oppressive world. When Alex rescues the feisty young rebel, she resists her dangerous attraction to him – a man who’s clearly crazy, literally in a world of his own.

Bound together first by chance and desperation, then by growing purpose, respect, and emotion, Alex and Jessie must depend on each other to survive. More than that, they must find a way to prevent a terrible crime from taking place – a crime that plunged both their worlds into nightmare – over a hundred years before. To have a future, they will have to find their way to the past.

Review: 
Though I do enjoy Sci Fi, it took me a bit to get into this book. In the first few chapters, Alex goes through an awful lot that I might have liked a bit more description on. He starts off with his wife, loses her in a car crash but their unborn child somehow survives for him to raise alone. But the story moves along when Alex finds what appears to be a regular cell phone in is burglarized office and is sent forward in time to an alternate world with a totalitarian government in place of America’s democracy. He eventually meets Jessie, and a journey through time to stop the events leading to her alternate world begins. They come to find one man attempting to create a utopia, unsuspecting of the effects of his actions on the world and time in general.

The writing of this story is quite good. The plot is interesting with plenty of action. Some scenes are a bit toned down for my tastes but each author has their own style. For any that like Sci Fi and especially time travel type fiction, I’d definitely recommend this book.
