When his daughter is falsely accused of murder, a scientist must travel 200 million years into the past to save her. But there are secrets waiting there. And more than her life is at stake.–GoodReads
When I first began to read again after going through a bleak time of my life, a handful of books from my library helped to slowly pull me back into the world of reading. A.G. Riddle’s The Atlantis Gene was one of these books.
So, getting Lost in Time in my hands was…special. It was nice to have a book from an author I had enjoyed and that pulled me from my slump and the premise sounded fantastic.
And that’s because the premise is.
I was blown away by this book.
Time travel, murder mystery, conspiracies, it’s all for an extremely thrilling read.
I thought for sure the time travel would be the biggest draw for me, turns out I couldn’t make up my mind on what I loved more. This mystery that unravels through the book just completely compelled me to keep reading and I loved how the time travel was used through out.
The pacing is very well done, I mean it was fantastic and I do remember Riddle always had a talent for pacing, that is true today too. The twist was one that I thought I might have figured out and in my case I did but I was still blown away by the revelation/execution.
Sam and Adeline share the stage most the time and there may be a shift to where one character is focused on, I won’t give more away than that other than to say it was the perfect way to do it. I loved getting the different POVs and in different times!
The book though doesn’t get overly complicated in the time travel itself, it’s clear what Riddle is doing and the conspiracy and mystery itself is more than enough to ‘complicate’ the plot and keep you on your toes.
All in all if you want something that will make you stay up late into the night reading for answers, I highly recommend this!
4.5/5 Cups of coffee from me! Thanks so much to Black Crow PR and Head of Zeus for the chance to be on this tour! I did not receive a free copy from them as I already had a copy from Goldsboro books and it is stunning! Be sure to try and keep an eye out for more reviews from the rest of the tour.
