This book is ridiculous.

It has SUCH great promise. The idea is amazing.

But it's poorly executed.

It was 400 pages of planning a heist that involved time travel and saving the future and lamenting about betraying friends to save the future.

I got to page 425 and admitted I was finally finally bored. When I was reading it, my mind would wander and whole pages would pass and I would have to go back to reread.

I didn't care about the characters.

The ending was beyond ridiculous. I was rolling my eyes and when I finished it, I couldn't believe I'd spend the week reading this.

Safe to say, I won't be continuing the series
