Review originally posted on my blog, Blackplume

I read Tomorrow is Today, the prequel novella of this book a month ago which leave me more curious about the time travel aspects of this book. It reminds me of Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveller’s Wife and Steven Gould’s Jumper. Though I am not really a fan of sci-fi stories in general, I am surprise that I did enjoy this book more than I expected.

It’s year 2009 and nineteen year old Jackson Meyer can jump through time. At first his ability to time travel is not that massive. He can only jump few hours into the past and he can’t jump forward. But when something happened to his girlfriend, he suddenly find himself trap two years in the past with no way to return to his present time.

One thing that really intrigue me here is the unusual concept of time-travelling. Jackson ability to travel is not as simple as going back through time. At first his travels backwards are not harming. What ever he do in the past during his jumps can’t change the future. But that all changed when he try to learn more about his ability. It is more complicated that what he and even I expected. The genetics aspects of time travelling alone is already intriguing. Throw some secret organizations and scientific experiments along the way I am really sold.
