Publisher's summary

Award Winner in the 2016 Readers Favorite International Book Contest and the 2016 Shelf Media Best Indie Contest

Dylan Townsend stands on the beach watching commercial jets fall out of the sky like oak leaves twirling in the wind. A wing shears off the one closest to the shore just before it splashes down in the sea. Why was she telling him this outlandish story? What sort of tourist agency would offer people a front row seat to the end of the world? More importantly, why would anyone book such a vacation if there wasn't any way home afterward?

"Why would anyone buy a ticket on the Titanic if they knew it was doomed?"

"Relax Dylan," she assures him. "If you know it's going to sink, you could bring a raft."

As she paces in the sand watching the sky, he realizes that however wild her story may be, he loves her. Maybe Izzy is a time travel tour guide after all. In truth, he is more likely to be harmed by her boyfriend than the imminent apocalypse. What's he going to do about that sticky situation?

"Come on," she orders, pulling on his arm. "We need to see a man about a raft."

Time travel and the apocalypse? interesting..

This is a great story! lots of twists and turns, and a great ending!
While listening to the story at first, I kept wondering what it was about. it took a bit to get into the apocalypse. But its a very fast paced great book while getting to it.
I was unaware it had anything to do about time travel, and was surprised when the topic came up.
This is my first book ever about time travel, and I was worried that once it was mentioned, I would get lost about the explanation of it. But Thankfully, I wasn't. and its really not about "time jumping". It actually turned in to a great way to explain a lot of things.

This was a great story, and did move quickly. I would of given this 5 stars, but I really could not stand Izzy. though I did try to like her, but I could not understand, or care for her. things are falling part all over the US, and she just didn't have a care in the world. Even though she knew it was going to happen. I would think that with everything going on, the apocalypse, she would not be so carefree.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
