The unbelievably thrilling sequel to the time-travel YA novel Loop.

Bree Bennis finally has it all—a non-comatose mother, an uber-hot (albeit anachronistic) boyfriend named Finn, and a new-found mission to protect the timeline from those who would skew it for their own gain. But when she leans over one day to smooch said boyfriend, her lips meet those of her arch-nemesis Wyck instead. The timeline has been altered, and Bree is caught in the crosshairs. But when she goes back to repair the damage, she is stopped by none other than her Future Self, who delivers an urgent message: Someone is kidnapping Shifters from the distant past. It’s up to Bree to stop them. But first, she has to figure out who... and why.

To follow the trail of chronocrumbs, Bree reluctantly accepts her new undercover gig as Wyck’s girlfriend. Everything goes spiffy until Finn shows up in the 23rd century on the eager arm of a gorgeous fellow Shifter, Blark. Even as Bree struggles with jealousy, she battles the nagging dread that Finn might be better off with someone less chronologically complicated. Her worst fear is confirmed when Finn becomes the kidnapper’s next victim. As Bree zeroes in on the culprit, they unravel her life one timeline-change at a time. She realizes that she alone has the power to save herself and everyone she loves. But to do that, she may lose Finn forever.

The 411:

We don’t know what we can say about this book without giving away too much of what happened in Loop, but the summary is pretty spot on.

What We Loved:

We love Finn, and that won’t change, even though we feel like we barely got to see him here.

Heart Border

Um...Not So Much:

The biggest thing that we outright hated was the love triangle. Sure, we get it. It wasn’t “really” a love triangle. But we didn’t want to read about Bree making out with her nemesis all the time. Ew. We wonder if Akins really was trying to figure out a way for Wyck to be with Bree instead, but she kind of couldn’t do that. *shrugs*

Also, wth is up with that cover? The first one was beautiful!

Heart Border

Bottom Line:

We’re not sure we’re glad we read this one. The time-travel aspect was interesting and there was a lot going on here, but we weren’t fans of the pseudo-love triangle and the confusing plot elements.
