Life was easier in the cage, now Lara Crane's life is under a microscope. She thought she was out, ready for a normal life, but with the Feds' endless questions and tests, Lara realizes she might never be free. Things would be worse if not for Donovan. They promise to ride it out together as Lara is fitted with a time travel restraint, designed to not only stop her, but to save her life as her mind spirals out of control. No more second chances. No more time travel to revert everything back the way it was once before.

Lara Crane is stuck in her mind, in an indefinite stream of timelines where her life is perfect, just the way she wants it to be. But it's not real. It's all made up to give those who want to use time travel for their own personal ambitions. To give time to finish their experiments and turn Lara into a deadly time travel assassin.

Last summer ended in disaster for Cora. She scurried home, was terrified of the secrets she'd uncovered and was afraid to be honest with the one person who most deserved it: Rory. But after a grueling year of trying desperately (and unsuccessfully) not to think about what she left behind, Cora finds a surprise on her doorstep.

Annie Blake put her life on hold to care for her mother when she was diagnosed with cancer. She didn't consider it a sacrifice as much as a labor of love. But then she learns that her father has done something completely out of character, not to mention criminal, in a misguided attempt to save the life of his wife. Annie realizes she will have to give up more than just a job and an apartment this time. To save him from going to prison, she will have to give up her freedom.

Some secrets should never be revealed.... Brylee Branson begrudgingly made the excruciating move with her family from the warm, sandy beaches of California to small-town living in New Jersey. As if she wasn't miserable enough, they've moved into a creepy, old house that everyone in the area claims is haunted. Brylee dismisses the idea of ghosts and hauntings until she begins to see and hear things that can't be explained....

What was supposed to happen: Mandy would land in the Virgin Islands, head to the Revenge Café on St. Thomas, and start living her dream life. She'd begin a new career sharing ownership of the restaurant with her best friend, Chance. She'd break her addiction to therapy cold turkey. And shed let the slow, laid-back pace of island life fix whatever was broken within her. What actually happened: apparently the Revenge Cafe is the "it" place for people dying, let alone dining.

Fifteen minutes is all the Rewind Agency gives a person when they travel to the past, but for Lara Crane it's enough for her to race through the city, find her mother, and stop her from being killed in a mugging that happened over 10 years ago. But the story she's been told all her life is a lie. When Lara takes a bullet meant for her mother, her future changes forever. A new house, new friends, and a new boyfriend turns Lara's life upside down.
