In this coming of age debut trilogy, USA Today bestseller Micah Caida turns pre-dystopian young adult fiction on its ear with a breathtakingly fresh science fiction, fantasy story that is as much a thriller as it does a romantic tale.
Rayen’s memory is blank. Her future's in question. Her power is dangerous.
I awoke in an unknown desert landscape that seemed familiar, yet I had no real memory of this place or…who I am. A strange ghost told me my name is Rayen and that I’m seventeen, but he disappeared just as I could have used some help. I was captured along with others my age who said the land was called Albuquerque, then I was dropped at a private school where at times things seem as familiar as the nearby mountain range and as alien as the image of my face. Everyone thinks I’m a Native American runaway, whatever that is, but the school has offered me a place until they learn my true identity, or my memory returns. As if things weren’t confusing enough, when I'm stuck working with a smart-mouthed computer savvy boy and meet a strange, but gifted, oddball girl, the three of us discover a secret that will threaten the existence of this world - and the future. In the middle of all that, I'm turned inside out by a seventeen-year-old boy who is as deadly as he is attractive and thinks I’m the enemy.
"Time Trap is amazingly original and unexpected...I loved every second of reading it!" ~~ Alexandra Fedor, 15, who has read The Book Thief, The Hunger Games, and Anna Karenina.
"Time Trap is a deliciously entrapping read you won't want to put down and leaves you thirsting for more when you finish." ~~Angela Catucci, young adult
“I really liked Time Trap and loved how Micah Caida created an entire world in the first pages. I liked reading from the different characters and hearing from each of them. I would definitely read more books of this series and really want to know what happens next. I've already recommended it to a friend.” ~~Duncan Calem, 14, Georgetown, TX who reads the Inheritance Series, Dark Life and Percy Jackson
"Time Trap will be a delight to every reader! All the ingredients you would hope to expect: a strong-willed heroine, a dangerously sexy man, an intriguing setting, and lots of unexpected turns make Time Trap a real page turner." ~~ Lynn Fedor, adult/mom and has read The Hangman's Daughter, The Curse: The Belador Series, and The BAD Agency Series
“I thought Time Trap's unique world was very fresh and very interesting. The history behind the characters gave them good depth and they all had nicely different personalities. Cool characters, cool plot, cool conflict. Nicely paced too, I was never bored.” ~~Emily Gifford, 16, Newark NY read the Inheritance Cycle, Harry Potter, Green Rider series
Loved this book
I loved this book. And I think it kept getting better with each chapter. I can't wait to read the next the rest of the series.
I think this book was good -- except for a few irritating flaws that brought this book down from a five to a three.
1. First of all, the stuff about teks and SEOH was probably meant to be some huge mystery meant to make people want to keep reading -- except it didn't. If done better, it would have worked and I would have enjoyed the book more. This book just said, "They're teks! They must die!" If this only happened a few times, I would have been more invested in the book. However, this dragged on for the majority of the book and really detracted from the plot. Instead of being curious about what teks or mystiks were, I found myself utterly bored and skipping pages. Boring.
2. Grammatical errors. The grammatical errors, while small most of the time, were very noticeable and detracted from the book. Sometimes authors break rules to give a book more flow or make it more interesting. However, there is really only a small amount of times you can do this before it looks like plain ignorance. This book crossed that line.
3. The plot was just boring. I'm sorry, it was. Tony is a poorly characterized brat, Gabby was this person, and the main character what's-her-name was horribly characterized as well. Sorry, book!
4. Stupid names. Really, just don't do this if writing a book. It really detracts from the story because the reader will constantly be thinking of what the names mean and what the point of using those words is. Also, books that make up fake curse words . . . Not attractive. Why not just use the real word instead of "furking", like this book did? Really.
5. No one believed the protagonists when they said they were 't the villainy-people. This tactic works for a book if used only a few times, but when seen throughout a whole book, it just detracts from it.
Besides these flaws, this book was occasionally genuinely interesting. The idea was interesting, the plot was somewhat interesting at times, and I'm a sucker for special powers and stuff, which this book had. I suppose it's not all bad.
I ate this book up. I read a lot of free novels and this is the first that I'm buying the other 2 that follow. All the characters in here are awesome and a strong female lead is what we need.
