I love to read. At any given time, I have at least three books on my Kindle  and at least one or two 'real' books that I am reading. My most recent find was Timehift, written by the very talented Kris Trudeau. It has all of my favorite things, drama, suspense, sci-fi and had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Kris has a way of getting us caught up in the story and leave us wanting more---but still satisfied with the end of the book. 

My favorite part of this was the four stories intertwining and connecting. I wont give away much, as to not ruin the story, but think of it as a literary form of This Is Us with more action and sci-fi. It is by far one of the best things I have ever read and I hope that we get to see more from the talented Kris.

Synopsis via Amazon:
In 2097, the missing link to Artificial Intelligence is uncovered when conventional robots are programmed with human personalities, giving them the desire to "be." While these free-thinking robots struggle to understand their own existence, they discover a dislike for human inefficiencies and materialism. Quietly, they strive to free their race from human constraints and their population explosion goes unnoticed until it's too late.

Tricity is on the brink of falling into the robots' clutches and the only solution whereby control of the city can be seized from the metallic malcontents is so unconventional that the odds of success are virtually nonexistent. During this 185-day mission, teams must alter elements of the past to save the future. If they are successful, time will "shift" and rewrite the future without the robots' destruction. 

Owen has no idea how he can help these teams save his city from the rogue, experimental robots, eighty years before the conflict even erupts. Although he is the key to saving the future in 2097, Owen may not be alive long enough to help. Caught up in a whirlwind of time travel, futuristic technologies and mysterious accidents, Owen's life may never return to normal.

TimeShift unravels the complex relationships and unique challenges faced by each team member during this seemingly impossible endeavour. Each person has the potential to shift time in a way that could drastically alter or undo key events and de-create people throughout history, changing the world for better...or for worse.
