BONUS MATERIAL: INCLUDES THE PROLOGUE AND FIRST CHAPTER OF THE DRAFTER, THE FIRST NOVEL IN KIM HARRISON’S NEW SERIES!
Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.
Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.
Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…

Short Review for a Short Book: Sideswiped by Kim Harrison is the prequel to her new Drafter Trilogy and a good one too boot. You know I don’t have major love for the short story but this was a good introduction to the characters (they rocked), the world (still not sure I am on board with what is cool about drafting but they did work the system), and hopefully the pace (quick, exciting) of the series to come.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By January LaVoy / Length: 2 hrs and 44 mins


I had only hear January once before this (she was part of an ensemble)so I wasn’t sure how she would be by herself. She was really good. Her pacing, emotions, and even her male voices were easy to listen too. I got Drafters as a review eBook but I am seriously debating waiting on the audiobook. We will see but I will be listening to her again.

  1. I enjoyed this. I wish I had the audio for The Drafter but I’m reading it now. I HIGHLY recommend people read/listen to this BEFORE reading/listening to The Drafter. I would have been lost a bit if I hadn’t.

    • I started The Drafter on audio this morning (I pre-ordered it) and yeah I don’t see how people who didn’t read Sideswiped wouldn’t be totally lost (at least on the characters) 🙂

  2. I read The Drafter and now, knowing there is a prequel, I have to ask myself if I would have liked it more if had read this novella… It’s too late now.

    • I think you would have. I started The Drafter this morning and where characters are concerned there is just a whole lot left out in The Drafter that I picked up in SideSwiped.

  3. I’ve never listened to this narrator. I think I’m going to see if I can get this on audio either from my library or get it for review from S&S. Glad you enjoyed it.
