Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information–but not everyone made it back to the present alive.
Now Elena’s dealing with her survivor’s guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she’s done with time travel and Aether Corporation.
But Aether’s not done with her–or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether’s latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort.
They arrive in a future that’s amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation’s reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.
But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost–or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything–including their relationship–to save their friends.
I think Future Threat is such a trip. There is so much going on that I am grateful that the author makes sure to rehash some previous events so that the new establishments of power, weapons and travel effects including the stages of character processing, where they stand how they feel and what they are going through that I almost needed a fresh mental ‘download’ on what took place the first time around in the first book.
Although I would like to mention that reading the first book isn’t completely necessary due to the fact that Briggs did a fantastic job filling in readers I would highly recommend it simply because there is so much going on – on so many levels that I believe the readers need it.
I love the cast in the Future Shock series, they are bright, they’re alive and its easy to place yourself in their shoes. Even though I don’t really think it was meant to be I do think that this series so far is an emotional read for me.
There is a dash of romance but it doesn’t take the whole of the story which is nice because it allows the reader to really focus on what’s taking place on a plot level than the character level despite it being so vital to whats going on.
If you haven’t read this series yet pick it up, you won’t regret it.
