I received a gratis copy of this novella from the publisher.

What a fun way to wrap up this twisty time travel series! Nikel does a great job of reminding readers about important past events and tracking the flow of time--especially important, as time travel paradoxes and peculiarities can get confusing at times. In this book, Dodge realizes that someone has been stalking his family across time, and even tried to kill his mother in the past. He needs to get to the bottom of things and stop the th

This entire series is just...I don't know what I was so excited for after the first book. The series could be so much better and the books are pathetically short and flat.


A) The first book should've been written and left alone; or

B) All four should've been in one book rather than a series of novelettes that don't do well on their own.

I think the only reason I got through the entire series is because the books were so short. I imagine if I'd given one book all my time, I could've finished

I was incredibly disappointed in this series. I have began to find over-lengthy sf novels tiresome, so I had high hopes for the novella format, but I think the writer took this in the opposite direction and gave us short stories where the plot demanded at least a long novella. The last two books in the series felt almost like summeries to me; and the characters were comically underdeveloped.

This review is for an ARC version of the book from the publisher.

I've read all 4 books in this series, and I will likely read all 4 of them again! Wendy Nikel weaves together a satisfying conclusion to this series that culminates with Dodge traveling across timelines to ensure the safety of his family line.

Throughout the series, I enjoyed how smoothly readers are transitioned through different points in time, experiencing both historical events and the events unfolding in the story. The Causalit

I honestly thought the 3rd book in this series was the last one but this was a fun addition, although their extended family's wibbley wobbley timey wimey adventures are honestly getting a bit confusing for me! Still, the author does put in short recaps of previous books in the text so I did appreciate that and overall it was a fun short read like all the rest of the books. I don't know if this one is supposed to be the last one - although it is

Really enjoyed book 4 in the series. Many of the previous character plots converged and developed in this story.
