Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her to use her body as a weapon, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run.

Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.

When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.

My-Thoughts

Read for Review/Listened for Fun (Edelweiss/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

Quick Thoughts: I am so glad that I listened to Sideswiped before The Drafter or I don’t think I would have enjoyed this one as much as I did. I was already invested in these characters (especially Silas and Peri–as individuals not a couple). The action was top notch. The twists really twisty (so maybe there was one too many in the middle but alas the end saved it for me). The world totally fascinating. However, it was the characters that made me love this book and start the countdown to book 2.

  1. This one really looks interesting, and I’m glad you said that about reading the other first. I’ve read books like that and know that if I hadn’t read the book before it that I would have probably not liked it as much. It’s all about that connection that lingers, I think.

  2. I started this one back in August and I was having a hard time engaging. I am planning on reading it over the break when I have to time to digest it.
