I liked the book. Carina's adventures passing back & forth thru a time portal when she least expects it and having to be careful how & what she tells her friends in each timeline so she doesn't appear crazy makes for a good read. The concepts of future life after a cataclysmic event are interesting especially the interaction between the 3 factions.
