A Sickness In Time by M.F. Thomas and Nicholas Thurkettle
THE MOST DANGEROUS OPERATION
In 2038, the human race is in a death spiral, and most people do not even know it yet. Technology that was supposed to make us better and stronger instead is birthing a strange and terrible plague we may not be able to stop. When the young daughter of Josh Scribner, a wealthy tech entrepreneur, starts to succumb to the illness, he dedicates his fortune in a desperate effort to save her life. Working with a friend & celebrated physicist, Josh develops the ability to send objects back through time. Their goal to recruit an agent in the past who might change our fatal path.
In our present day, a broken and traumatized Air Force veteran finds a strange message in the woods, drawing her into an adventure spanning decades. All humanity is at stake, as she and her small group of friends become the unlikely heroes taking up the secret fight against our future doom.
MF Thomas and Nicholas Thurkettle, authors of the acclaimed sci-fi thriller Seeing by Moonlight, are back with this time-twisting adventure that asks if our own destiny can be healed.
It took a little bit to get into this book, a few chapters or so, but then once I got into it I didn't want to stop. It definitely kept my attention. I have recently found a love for time travel books and I've always liked suspenseful type books so A Sickness In Time fell into the 'My kind of book' category!
Each chapter went back and forth from future to present and you would think that it would make it confusing, but it didn't at all. Also, the science part of the story was very believable and not confusing for me! I know pretty much nothing about 'science things' so there have been several times when science fiction books were a little over my head. This book wasn't like that. I didn't feel lost or confused.
A Sickness In Time stayed at a pretty good pace and wasn't predictable. There were plot twists that made the story interesting and enjoyable. Well done, Thomas and Thurkettle! Thanks for a great book!
