Generally I’m not that much of a fan of time travel stories. Too often the stories treat time travel as a bridge from some arbitrary now to another arbitrary then so that the story can happen then instead of now. In short, they become an unnecessary appendage to the beginning of the story. They add a frame where the countdown ticker consists of “how long the window will be open so we can return” instead of being integral to the story.
Kim O’Hara doesn’t fall into this plot hole. Her main character, Intern Dani Adams, finds herself trying to make sense of a world that only she remembers. Her struggles lead her to a show down with shadowed figures operating at the highest level of the research institute where she works, while she tries to find a way to restore the river of time to its rightful banks.
If anybody can actually say which are the rightful banks to begin with.
It’s a clever story told well. O’Hara is one to watch and this book is just the first in what I hope will be a long and storied career. Grab a sample and see what you think.
