At the beginning the book appeared to have some essence of historical fiction, with all the information of Boston in 1770 molded with the current incidents. To be honest, I have always abhorred historical fictions, and was kind of dubious on whether I made the right choice when I opened the book. But as I crept along with the story, I was drowned in the excitement that accelerated with every chapter, and I was left fascinated when I had reached the very last paragraph.

I would recommend this book to anyone I like, as it's a quick, enjoyable read that is perfect for young adults and adults alike. The characters are familiar and easy to relate to as they fumble their ways through time and space. Passing between Colonial Boston and the future adds a new environment in which it is easy to be immersed. My only recommendation for Wilcox is the addition of more character development, which is sure to come in the sequel. Read it; You won't regret it.

Now, he’s stuck in 1770, trying to get his talisman back. He has five days to find his talisman and get back to his home or he’ll be stuck in 1770 forever and his family will forget he ever existed.

When I began reading Renegade I was immediately sucked into the story.

Renegade was refreshing. It was thrilling. It was enjoyable. It was amazing.

It’s an easy read and fast-paced. It had twists and turns, and wasn’t predictable.

I couldn’t put this book down.

This was a really good debut book from L.A. Wilcox. It was a little rough around the edges but with a few tweaks here and there it would be amazing.

The main character, Andrew has broken two of the rules of time travel, he interfered with some

Not my favourite cover but it's not horrible.

Initial Thoughts

I read a few reviews before going into this book. They were pretty average so my expectations were average. I was a little worried because I sometimes can't get into historical fiction. Luckily, while this book took place in the past, it was still an easy read and not too historical. I was able to get into this book really quickly.

This is an exciting book, well written with a lot of surprises. Wilcox does a great job of making you believe these characters really exist. My favorite is Andrew, the main character who is not afraid to take risks. I found the book to be fast paced with the action beginning in the very first chapter. I loved the intertwining of the plot and the way it all came together with an unforeseen twist in the end. This one left me hanging.................. I can hardly wait for the next one in the serie ...more

A gripping story, well written and inventive at times. I look forward to reading more from this new author and know she will keep providing a story rich in character, clever in plot and capable of touching the reader on an emotional level as well.

A haunting tale of time travel and so much more.
