Description

I’m Meimi Archer, your regular high school science geek for hire. Sure, it’s dangerous to create high-tech gizmos for a criminal overlord called the Scythe, but it keeps Mom and me safely off-grid. Ever since the Authority took over the United Americas, you either live inside a domed city (where you’re watched 24-7) or you scrape by on illegal money while hiding out in the sticks. Guess what category I fall into?

Long story short, everything's fine until I screw up a job. Badly. My home slips into two-dimensional space-time. It only lasts for a few seconds, but the move still sets off about a dozen government alarms. If they track me down, Mom and I are good as dead. Now I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe. Fast.

That’s when a hottie named Thorne materializes in my kitchen. He’s about my age, wears black body armor, and says he came to “this version of Earth” from another planet. We share a bizarre mind-meld moment before he vows to do anything that ensures I survive.

Hey, I’ll take all the help I can get. Plus, Thorne has dimples...

“This kept me on my toes … Be it random science, opening portals to new dimensions, evading capture, doing shady deals with crime bosses, betrayal, the humdrum of school with Lead Camper Dave (snicker), to hot (alien) man-candy sent to help save the day. Pick this up and expect to get sucked in to the Dimension Drift.” - Smada’s Book Smack

I loved this book. the first couple of pages I was doubtful as to whether it was my thing but it certainly was. It was brilliant. This is the first of a trilogy and I can't wait to read the second one.

Wow. I was not expecting this kind of baddassery from a book. The story grabbed me from the start. It has a bit of everything; baddass heorine, science, action, ALIENS, government coverups, inter-dimensional tracel, portals, and conspiracy. and yes a hottie. This story has the makings to be epic and I can't wait to read more on Thorne and Meimi. This is every geek/nerd/and sci-fi/fantasy enthusiast's cup of tea. ARC was provided for an honest review.
