Just because Quanta can see the future doesn’t mean she can change it. She’s spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she’s finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.
The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in a perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.
Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They’ll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she’s seen how their love plays out?
I LOVED this book and fully expect to see it one day in film! Quanta is the second book in The Shadow Ravens series– a series written by three different authors and set in a futuristic world run by a genetically modified caste system. Much like the Hunger Games, it opens with a palpable tension that never lets up and keeps you on edge until the very end.
I just couldn’t put this book down.
Reminiscent of the movie Edge of Tomorrow (which was originally the Japanese military sci/fi novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka,) it amps up the time travel genre and keeps the reader gasping, “No Way!”
The love story meshes perfectly with the action. Lola Dodge knows how to marry romance and action so seamlessly that the reader isn’t jarred between the two, but keeps turning pages to see how the two characters (Quanta and Altair) can possibly survive long enough to begin their love story–the love story that we’ve been watching through Quanta’s time visions from the moment we first see Altair.
Overall, exciting read and well written. Though it is the second book in the series, it could easily be stand alone. If you are the kind of reader that HAS to read your series in order (that would be me!) then click here to read our review of Cipher by Aileen Erin. I can’t wait for book three in the series!
