Blurb from Goodreads:
Five months after traveling to a post-apocalyptic future where collectives reign supreme and individuals have been hunted to the verge of extinction, Maggie Harper was returned to her own time until the threat to her life could be neutralized. She thought Marcus and the others would return for her within a few weeks, and now she’s beginning to worry.
When travelers from the future finally show up to collect her, it’s not who she expected. With the return of her memories, she wants more than ever to see Marcus again, but a snake-like woman whose abilities are a perfect match for Maggie’s, an injured Traveler, and decades of civil unrest to wade through all stand in the way of their reunion.
Meanwhile, Marcus and Karl traipse through the countryside, trying to neutralize Colin, who’s promised to brutalize and murder Maggie if he can get his hands on her. When a collective woman is left for dead, Marcus heals her, hoping she’ll be the key to killing Colin and bringing Maggie back. But she may prove as much a hindrance as a help.
The team struggles to get their bearings, but things happen faster than they know. The collectives are coalescing, power is shifting, and the one called B is putting sinister plans into action. If the team can’t reunite and get a handle on the situation, their freedom and individuality—perhaps their very identity—will be ripped away before they can catch their breath.
After reading the first book in the Interchron series I knew I would be continuing with the series so when I was asked if I wanted to take part in the blog tour I jumped at the chance (even if I am a little late).
I'm not a huge fan of the cover but I do like that it ties in with the first cover and that it ties in with the actual story which I always love about covers when they do that.
When I first started this book I felt the same way as I did when reading the first book as I was confused and it took me awhile to get into it. This time though it was a lot harder to get into and even more confusing as there's so many different time periods and things that happen that doesn't explain things very well. However there are a few really great moments in this book that kept me hanging in there. I do wish there was a bit more romance involved with the story but I guess I understand there wasn't really any but I do hope there is more in the next book. Some of the things that was unanswered in the first book was answered in this book which was great but then this book threw more questions into the equation. The ending I kind of liked as there was a little bit of closure but there was a big cliff hanger just hanger there making me look forward to see what happens next.
In this book I warmed to Maggie's character a lot more than I did in the previous book she seemed a lot more stronger than before too. I loved Marcus even more in this book as I felt we got to understand where he was coming from a lot more this time and it was nice to see. There was a few other characters that wasn't in the first book much but this time around we see a lot more of them and I have a feeling we will see even more during the third book.
Overall it was a slow start and very confusing but there was times that I found I was loving and now I am excited to see what happens next.
