A mysterious folder on a rich man's computer has taunted Kallie for too long. She has to know what it contains and whether it includes sensitive information about her people. Complications along the way send Kallie through time and space and her attempts to find someone who can hack the file leads her to a Harekai she didn't expect to see again.
Surprises lurk within the secret files of a rich man's files and Kallie's attempts to uncover the truth bring insights into every aspect of the path her life has followed. Confusion over how to deal with an enemy at a vulnerable moment tests her sense of compassion, but an accident of timing may lead to someone close to her getting lost in time forever!
Sweet Child of Time is the latest installment of the Chronicles of the Harekaiian, an intriguing serial featuring an offset of humans with the ability to time or distance travel at whim. In this one, Kallie feels the pull of adventure and can’t resist it. Despite being safe from Mason and the others who were targeting her people, she can’t let it rest.
Like in some of the previous stories, Kallie hops through a few times, takes in a concert, dabbles in espionage, and thwarts her enemies. All in a day’s work. There were no huge revelations, but she does come to a life-changing decision and we do learn more about a seemingly inconsequential character from an earlier episode, making me thing the fellow might not be as innocent as he’d seemed.
These books are a running story, not individual novels, and are meant to be read in order.
Overall, this was a pretty good episode, not earthshattering, but good. Folks who like time travel, nostalgic peeks into history, and action would probably like this serial.
I received the review copy of this book from the author.
