The Edge of Forever
by Melissa E. Hurst
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Release Date: June 2nd 2015
In 2013: Sixteen-year-old Alora is having blackouts. Each time she wakes up in a different place with no idea of how she got there. The one thing she is certain of? Someone is following her.
In 2146: Seventeen-year-old Bridger is one of a small number of people born with the ability to travel to the past. While on a routine school time trip, he sees the last person he expected—his dead father. The strangest part is that, according to the Department of Temporal Affairs, his father was never assigned to be in that time. Bridger’s even more stunned when he learns that his by-the-book father was there to break the most important rule of time travel—to prevent someone’s murder.
And that someone is named Alora.
Determined to discover why his father wanted to help a “ghost,” Bridger illegally shifts to 2013 and, along with Alora, races to solve the mystery surrounding her past and her connection to his father before the DTA finds him. If he can stop Alora’s death without altering the timeline, maybe he can save his father too.
The Edge of Never was one of those books that surprised me. I'm not really into traveling books because they tend to get way to science fiction for me but the way Melissa Hurst wrote this story has me rethinking everything.
Bridger is from 2146 and he can travel through the past but when he does he has to be careful that he doesn't change history or anything because that could cause damage. So when Bridger receives a message from his dead dad, he goes back to 2013 to uncover whatever secrets have been kept.
Alora doesn't understand why sometimes she blacks out. One minute she can take a nap in one spot and the next, Alora is in a different place. Obviously Alora doesn't want to tell anyone because they might think she's crazy (I know I would and I would require proof) so she keeps quiet until she can't anymore.
I like Alora and Bridger, they were two teenagers trying to find answers to unsolved mysteries and when they worked together it was adorable, their scenes had me squeeing.
What I liked the most about The Edge of Never was that I was left guessing the entire time. I would solve one part of the puzzle piece, only to find that more pieces needing solving.
The mystery was high in The Edge of Never and I can't wait to see what else Melissa Hurst has in store for us
