    What Paige Campbell saw when she opened a door into 70 years from now scared the hell out of her. She and her Tangent colleagues brought their terrible discovery to the President and were met with a hail of automatic gunfire after leaving the White House. Only Paige survived.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would easily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Sci-Fi thrillers. Not only was the storyline original, but it was well thought out, detailed, and wrapped up in the end. Also, the author had a great knack for anticipating my questions and answering them before it ruined my suspension of disbelief and it did not have a J.K. Rowling 19 years later type of ending. The only monkey in the wrench, so to speak, was the character Bethany who seemed to possess unrealistic computer savvy. But I guess her character was needed in order for the storyline to progress, so it was something I could easily overlook.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As mentioned, the plot was well thought out which allowed the story to always move forward by revealing new facts while still covering or answering old ones.


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I've been an audiobook fan for a few years, and for me the narrator is almost as important as the author. He/she can make or break an otherwise great story. He does a great job of making every character plausible and where you instantly recognize the character which keeps you in the story moment without struggling to remember where you are.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My biggest reaction or thoughts about the whole experience was the overall enjoyment of the entertainment factor. For me the devil is in the details and it can be a deal breaker. Nothing slaps me in the face and screams


    Any additional comments?

    For me a great mystery is where the reader has to get inside the mind of the author and figure out what happened. A great sci-fi is just the opposite. The author has to get inside the mind of the reader in advance and figure out what his objections will be to believing his story. Kudos to the author for his originality and doing just that.
