The world-building in this book was really fantastic. What could possibly be scarier than a government with the power to control time itself? With the ability to alter events and remove people from existence as needed? That is just crazy. With that being said, the characters themselves were not very well-developed, they felt more like plot devices than people. With books like this, lack of character depth doesn’t bother me so much but I can see where it would frustrate some people to no end. I loved the ending to this book and the cliff-hanger it set up and I am absolutely dying to read more about this world and the society in which Adelice lives. If you like time-travel books and enjoy reading books like “The Hunger Games” and “The Testing” which feature oppressive futuristic governments, you should really give this a try.
