Future Shock #3
1st April 2018
It’s been a year since Elena and Adam were first recruited by Aether Corporation and six months since they destroyed the accelerator, finally putting an end to Project Chronos and their involvement with Aether. Now they’re trying to move on with their lives. Elena’s in college and Adam is working on making genicote, his cure for cancer, safe for the public.
But genicote has become a dangerous fixation for Adam. He’ll do anything to figure it out, and when he goes missing, Elena realizes that he’s done the unthinkable: he went to Aether for help with the cure. To Elena’s horror, she discovers that Aether has created a new accelerator. Adam betrayed her trust and has traveled into the future to find the fix for his cure, but he didn’t come back when he was supposed to. Desperate to find him, Elena decides to risk future shock and time travels once more.
This future is nothing like they’ve seen before. Someone has weaponized Adam’s cure and created a dangerous pandemic, leading to the destruction of civilization. If Elena can’t find Adam and stop this, everyone is at risk. And someone will do anything to keep her from succeeding.
This is just my opinion.
I was stoked when I got this book and I think that my expectations were just too high. I don’t really know what to say about this book.
The plot is solid with the Black Friday virus but see my mini rant below. It is well written but there was too much time travel going on. Less in this case would have been more. But the author does a great job of portraying an awful future with dire consequences.
The main characters were difficult to stomach because they did such idiotic things. I really didn’t like Elena in this book and Adam with his obsession wasn’t much better. It was fast paced and when I’d thought we’d finally be getting somewhere the pace would slow down to a crawl.
Mini rant here.
In this day and age, I am fed up of Nazi’s being a reoccurring trope as the bad guys. I mean for Christ sakes do you really know the meaning of the word and how much pain, sorry and hatred is connected to this word. These types of organizations in America cannot be considered as Nazi’s they are white supremist. Consider the culprits in the book to be something else I mean I don’t know how about inland terrorism.
