The second book in the New York Times best-selling Future Shock trilogy!
Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future, from where they brought back secret information - but not everyone made it back to the present alive. Now Elena's dealing with her survivor's guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she's done with time travel and Aether Corporation.
But Aether's not done with her - or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether's latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort. They arrive in a future that's amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation's reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.
But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications and more lives lost - or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything - including their relationship - to save their friends.

Always looking for a great post apocalyptic roadtrip!
I finished this one a while ago, well almost immediately after it came out but got busy so here is my comments. This one does not suffer from sophomore slump. There is so much to like about this and I will start with the group of main characters. They are so likable and well developed. I was rooting for them all the way through this one. The future landscapes are very well done. Each world was so intricate and detailed it really made the experience of time travel seem real. The technology described in the future is so cool I hope it all comes true and I get to experience it one day. The author does a great job mixing in pop culture references that teenagers and 20 somethings will really get a kick out of. Our main character is really the star of the show with her attitude but softness to her personality really makes you want the best for her. The story is filled with twists and turns it will keep you guessing and personally I couldn't put this one down until I knew what happened next. Erin Spencer kills the narration. It was fabulous and so well done. Her male voices are superb, her tone and direction is so professional and even when she had to relax and be funny she was. Overall a story well told and worth your time. Super excited for book 3 to come out and see where our rag-tag group is taken next.
