My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Book Blurb: 

They took everything: her family, her home, her childhood.

By the age of nineteen, Raven has spent most of her life in the sprawling slums of America, fighting as a rebel against the dictatorship. When the rebellion steals an experimental time-travel device, she travels back five decades to the year 2013. Her plan: assassinate the future dictator when he is still young and vulnerable, long before he comes to power. She must move fast to reshape history, because agents from her own time are on her trail, ready to execute her on sight.

My Review: 

I'd seen this book promoted on several facebook pages and thought it looked interesting. I held off on purchasing it at first just because I'd recently purchased several others. I jumped at the chance to win it when I saw LK Rigel's status. I started reading it immediately after I had completed the book I was on. Little did I realize how much I would LOVE this book in that I would stay up until 5 am reading the book. I reluctantly put it down with about 50 pages to go because I did have to work the next afternoon.  
Raven is a likable character. In fact, the author made you care for all the characters. As I was nearing the end of the story, i realized that it made me think of Doctor Who. How he travels back and forth through time to change things. This is the first book I've read by JL Bryan but I don't believe it will be the last.
