Review: "Time Shifters" by Shanna Lauffey

An ancient people who can move through time or space...

A secret that never should have been revealed...

One day in a Los Angeles restaurant, Akalya of the Harekaiian witnesses the capture of several of her people and is the only one to get away. Now it is up to her to rescue the captives and learn how... and why... they are being apprehended.

The key lies in discovering who is behind the hunt for her people, when no one should have known they existed.

My Review:
This novella series was actually really good. I was immediately drawn into the world of time travel. The plot kept me interested and consistently thickened, and the writing was pretty well done; I have no complaints. I also enjoyed that the setting was based in California; specifically Los Angeles. I am a native Californian, by the way.

The lead, Akalya, is pretty selfless and goodhearted. I don't know if I could have been as risky as her. Marcus was also really interesting; every scene with him was like heaven. However I hope to see more scenes and interaction between him and Akalya.
The twist Shanna Lauffey puts on time travel was quite creative yet realistic. Superpowers aren't usually written with limitations or consequences these days, so seeing it in this book was surprising in a good way. My only complaint with this book is the length: it was too short and I wanted more.
Favorite Quote:
"It is difficult to believe in anything spiritual when you have too much science, yet I have seen things that defy explanation by what is known." -Akalya
