Publisher's Summary

Nothing ever changes in Sanders. The town's still got a video store, for God's sake.

So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave?

Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.

The one who's being pursued by...something.

So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend.

To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

    "He’s done it again"

    Peter Clines has further solidified himself as my favorite author with this book. Ray Porter needs a raise too! Dude is amazing in all his books.

    "Time travel mind boggler!"

    Very well-done time conundrum tale. Lots of humor. Lots of clever names. Lots of time twists. Cool cars. A train! A happy ending. And Ray Porter.

    If you like hurting your brain with time paradoxes, this is a good one.

    "Clines strikes again!"

    Peter Clines is my favorite author, and this book cements his place in history as one of the greats. Porter delivers another great performance as always. snuck in unneeded bathroom breaks to finish this one!

    "Another hit!"

    I can never get enough of Ray Porter reading Peter Clines! I do tend to feel like Peter Clines‘s stories drag in the middle, and this book might not be an exception, but I think he does that on purpose because everything wraps up so incredibly at the end. His stories are always gripping and clever. After reading 14 and The Fold, I picked up this title as soon as it was released and it was not a disappointment. Thank you gentlemen!

    "Hum!!!"

    I really loved "14" and "The Fold", so of course I got this as soon as it came out. Now that's it's finished I'm not really sure how I feel about the story. Ray Porter was excellent and I'd spend a credit for Peter Cline's next book. I can't really put my finger on what I didn't like, just wasn't my favorite.

    "great book"

    this is a fantastic book! it touches on the complexities of traveling through history in a way that makes the reader understand exactly what's going on. the story never seems to take a second off and is constantly pulling you through with more excitement.

    "Instant Classic for me"

    Excellently written and narrated. Peter Clines had become one of my all time favorite authors. Ray Porter has wide range of vocal talent and doess every character justice. The story is top-notch.

    "Not for me."

    I'm a fan of alot of Peter Clines' books. Geve me other dimensions in apartments or superheroes fighting zombies and I'm ok with that. But I'm not a fan of this niche fiction, America fantasy. This was one of the biggest disappointments I've had, in reading a book, for some time. In defense of the book, I did not read what the book was about when I ordered it. I simply saw one of my favorite authors was releasing a new book, so I automatically ordered it. I guess you can't judge a book by its author either. Don't get me wrong, I feel the book was well written. But, as I said, I'm not a fan of this type of fiction.

    "Just an amazing cosmic adventure"

    What a superb cosmic tale, from Peter Clines, a writer that has simply blown me away with every book i read from him. Marvelous characters that just grow on you, and dialogue that flows so naturally.
    I had the audiobook version which was narrated by the ultra awesome Ray Porter.
    I still maintain id buy an audio book on how to watch paint dry if Ray Porter was narrating it.
    Peter Clines obviously agrees as this is not the first time the two have collaborated.
    Paradox Bound is a history traversing wonder journey, that cleverly drifts back and forth through scenes, to tie up loose ends, and feels like an out of control rollercoaster in the dark.
    So enjoyable i felt a real sense of loss when it had finished.
