Publisher's Summary

It's New Year's Eve and I've only got my fourth drink to keep me company....

I'll be honest; I've made some terrible choices in my life. Decisions I knew were wrong, but I made them anyway.

My most recent transgression, however, was by far the worst and also the reason I was burying my face in alcohol on a night where I should've been celebrating. What did I do, you might be wondering? I cheated on the love of my life, the only woman who ever really understood and accepted me. And now she's gone.

No, this isn't the story about how I joined some 12-step program and turned my life around. It's not even the story about how I won the girl back. But it is the story of what happened next: when the hands of the clock tattoos on my forearms began to turn.

It was on that night when I began to realize everything I thought was true, really wasn't. It was the night that redefined reality as I knew it, the night when I stared into the abyss...only to see my own face leering back at me.

Since then, I've done the unbelievable - I've shattered the barrier separating time and space; I've visited strange worlds and walked in alternate realities; I've been to the place where time itself stands still. And I've beheld the vastness of the Multiverse, the roof under which countless worlds exist and endless possibilities become reality.

You're probably wondering how some jerk like me could've landed such a cool gig? Well, it's not really all it's cracked up to be because the Multiverse is under immediate threat of annihilation and I'm caught in the eye of the storm.

My name is Isaac Kent. And this is my story.

Ok, get to the point.

This book is so disjointed, it takes an hour for the MC to have a few drinks and do some drugs... no joke. It goes on, and on, and on, and I found my concentration drifting away for minutes at a time, only to return to the story to find it's STILL on the same scene, noting having happened.

How many times this author can explain colours flashing before his eyes... I'll never know because this is an obvious RETURN. Thank you Audible and your Platinum Membership. I can't imagine being stuck with this paperweight.

The narrator is confident and does a fine job with the material he presents. I would listen to another book read by him.

Entertaining Listen

An ordinary man will be called upon to do the extraordinary - namely, save the universe. Sounds interesting, right? Although the story was entertaining overall, I was surprised by the explicit sexual content. I listen to a lot of romance novels and am accustomed to the sex but I'm not sure if hardcore sci-fi fantasy lovers would have the same comfort level.

Some reviewers have said that the plot and concepts were difficult to follow/understand but I did not find that to be the case. In a nutshell, when you mess with Time, it messes back. When the plot started emerging and the action picked up, I was hooked. I enjoyed this sci-fi adventure and would be interested to see how Isaac fares in Book 2. Kyle Tait as narrator really nailed Isaac and gave a performance that never failed to hold my interest. I would recommend Skypunch if the listener is not opposed to some sexual content.

So many storylines!!!

I swear if this book was just about Isaac Kent and his life choices (and subsequent consequences), I probably would have loved it a bit more. Once time-travel got involved, things got a bit more muddled.

I love time travel novels but the back and forth of this listen and the over-reliance on pseudo-science made this listen a bit hard to follow at times.

I loved the narrator! Kyle Tait is a big part of the reason I kept listening, even when things got confusing. His portrayal of Issac Kent, all versions of Isaac, was very special and sometimes, sexy. In fact, be prepared for some hot and steamy moments.

I just wanted a simple sci-fi listen but this one made me think.

Kind of a mess.

Posted a review yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared so I'm reposting, though I probably won't go as in-depth as I did yesterday.

Bottom line is this book is kind of a mess. It's almost like this book doesn't know what genre it wants to be. It's listed as a sci-fi-fi/time travel, but it sure didn't feel like that for much of the book. Heck, you might think it's a romance/erotica because the first 3.5 hours of the book are mostly spent detailing the main character drinking, doing drugs, and having graphic sex. There are a few .5 chapters (as in chapter 3.5 or 4.5 or whatever) which are confusing as heck, detailing some guy in the 'time nexus' talking with a robot, these chapters seem totally unrelated to much of what is happening. As for the time traveling, we don't even really see the main character use his 'time travel' power until about hour 6 (total time of the book is 9 and a half hours!) And after he uses his power things really get totally off the wall, making almost nose sense. Seriously, somehow we get to the point where his doppelgänger sets him up, drugs and steals his girlfriend, and makes him the most hated person in the world.

I also must comment on the actual writing. I'm fairly sure this is Logan Castle's first novel and it shows. I know another review stated he was overly wordy, and I completely agree, but it's more than that. He repeats himself or restates the obvious again and again. He also tells his story rather than shows, which I normally don't notice while listening to an audio narration, but in this case it's blatantly obvious as he has his characters talk almost nonstop, telling the history of the characters and the world rather than having us experience the world. Mr. Castle also writes in a very passive form. There is no question that Mr. Castle has a wild imagination, and perhaps with more experience, not to mention working with an editor or maybe even some beta readers, he cold have made this a decent novel, but as it is it's a confusing mess. This is supposedly the first book in a series, but it's a series I will not be following.

Now as for Kyle Tait's narration, this was the one bright spot. This is the first time I've heard him, and I was very impressed. He has a good voice with nice clean clear delivery. I would definitely listen to him again.

Had promise, but did not deliver

Our protagonist is a seemingly good man who makes some idiotic choices when it comes to the love of his life. We start out with him at the bar on New Year's Eve as he tries to drown his sorrows in alcohol (and then in a woman).

I originally thought the bar scene was simply an opener to introduce the character and his life, but we actually end up spending quite a while there. That night finally ends with an event that should have dropped us into the "meat and potatoes" of the story (Isaac activing his "power"), but soon after, we're back to more pining for his lost love and interludes.

Soeaking of interludes, interspersed in Isaac's love drama are scenes featuring someone called the keeper of time. It's these interludes that the author uses to give us (a bit) more insight into what's happening to Isaac -- though they come across more lecture than interesting story.

This back and forth (Emo Isaac, Keeper of Time) continues for quite a while in various ways, but we eventual reach a moment in Isaac's life where it all seems to come to a head. This should have been a pivotal moment in the story, and in many ways it was, however it ended up being literally pivotal in that just about everything we'd built up to was pushed to the side for something totally new.

In the end, we're left with a cliffhanger and zero resolution to anything that came before it.

I liked the concept this story presented, and even settled in and got cozy with the long drawn-out opening in the bar as the writer is excellent at creating atmospheric scenes. Sadly the trees of interesting scenes failed to come together into a forest in this book. While the cliffhanger ending means that forest may be visible in book 2, I won't be there to see it.

Kyle Tait did an excellent job narrating, and I'd be happy to listen to another story read by him.

I was provided this audiobook free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Entertaining and enjoyable

3.5 stars
Good start to a series. Interesting and creative. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started this book, but I can say it's different(in a good way)from anything else I have listened to in quite a while. Bottom line I really enjoyed it. It was a creative, humorous, imaginative, very entertaining and engaging listen. It did take a while for me to be completely pulled into the story but once I was I listened every chance I could. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

It's time travel with a twist. Not just travel in time but travel in the multiverse. It might sound confusing but it's not. There are however rules that need to be followed in this complex yet simple world. There is a delicate balance in the multiverses and you need to be very careful not to alter that balance and risk a butterfly effect that would send ripples into each different world.

Isaac gets pulled into this world he never knew existed before.

Have to say wasn't expecting any "adult" scenes but there are. So if you don't like s e x in your books you may want to steer clear. It also ends in a cliffhanger so be prepared.

Kyle Tait did a great job with the narration. Nice voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. He was the perfect narrator for this book. Hopefully he will be narrating the rest of the series. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. He was able to bring the characters, their emotions and the story to life. Very enjoyable.

Review Skypunch

I’m sorry to say that this was not the book for me. The author failed to relate the story in a way that enticed me to listen. Moving thru the book to give an honest review was a chore. I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sigh Fi would be a better genre than Sci-Fi

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a complete mess. The first half (though it felt much longer) is full of an overly wordy description of the main character's drug and sex filled debauchery. I really expected more multiverse and less autobiography of a loser... Really, the first actual signs of sci-fi don't appear until 6ish hours in. so, out of 9 and a half hours, only about 3 are remotely science fiction-like. More like Sigh Fi... The narrator was good, though, so there is that... I wouldn't waste a credit on this one.

Interesting start to a time/space bending story

As a whole, this is an interesting story once it gets going, the characters are well written and the narration is good.

The whole time travel, threat to everything and plot is an interesting and well done. The characters are each given a unique voice and both the written and narration does a great job of conveying their emotions.

I did not notice any problems in the recording

My only problem with this audiobook was the binging of this book was a little dull and did nothing to make me want to keep listing to it or like the main character Isaac Kent. It does a good job of letting us see his character and his flaws but I did not enjoy that part of the story my self.

All in all after listing to the whole book I can say that it is good and worth a listen if you give it a chance and let it get going. I am interested to find out what happens next in this story.

A solid 4/5

An incredible ride with well developed characters

Time travel, love, betrayal, and all the consequences of the choices we make in a multiverse thats a rich and fascinating world to get swept into! This is one that you need to pay attention too but wow does it get you hooked!
Authentic and well developed characters in a situation thats certainly not something you have experienced personally. The story is great and the characters are spot on in terms of really getting you involved in them and the story.
The pace is great. The take on time travel and decisions vs consequences is brilliant and feels really unique to me.

I was hooked from the start to the finish!

Also great narration that adds to the sense of pace and really brings the characters to life.

Emotional torture

Issac acts and behaves like a whinny teenager, He is the loser who always destroys anything good in ones life. He is slow to follow the twists and decides to ignore whats happening and lives in denial. He cheats on the women he loves and turns to drugs and booze when faced with difficulty in life. Instead of fighting for what he believes in he moans and whines. I don't know why he's the protagonist. I won't be reading the next book it's just not for me.
