Echo in Time delivers on "the possibility of an equally thrilling sequel" (Kirkus Reviews) to Erasing Time.

After being pulled 400 years into the future, twins Taylor and Sheridan have found some refuge from the government of Traventon, which used the dangerous Time Strainer to yank the girls from the past. Yet the threat of the dangerous technology still looms. Taylor and an ally, Joseph, are selected to go on a mission to destroy the time machine and weapon. But their actions before they do may have major consequences for the future and the past.

Action-packed and romantic, this futuristic sequel to Erasing Time is perfect for fans of dystopian and sci-fi novels such as The Maze Runner by James Dashner, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, and Matched by Ally Condie.

About the Author

C. J. Hill is the mother of twins. They aren't identical, but this doesn't mean she always calls them by the right name. In fact, she occasionally calls all her children by the wrong names (she has five) and has even been known to throw the dog's name into the mix. Laugh now, but you'll do the same thing when you have kids.

If C. J. had a time machine and could visit another century, she would probably go to the Regency era instead of the future. According to all the novels she's read, the past was filled with a multitude of dashing lords and viscounts who were always on the lookout for damsels in distress, whereas the future is populated by scary dystopian societies.

What a great sequel to Erasing Time! There are some very sad moments and plenty of funny moments too.  C.J. Hill is a clever writer. It’s Dystopia, Time Traveling, and Romance all wrapped up in an Action Adventure Story. The book continues with the funny slang words we use that make no sense in the future.  Spoiler alert if you haven’t read book one:  The story continues with Taylor and Sheridan who got sucked up in a time machine to the 25th century. It’s only been a couple months since they escaped Traventon. They are living in Santa Fe. Sheridan and Joseph (In book one, Erasing Time he pretends to be Echo, his dead twin brother.) are in the beginnings of a developing relationship. The government in Santa Fe believes the time strainer is dangerous.  Taylor and Joseph and some of Santa Fe’s finest military men are picked to go back and destroy the machine. The assignment is dangerous but all is going as planned until they learn everyone has their own secret mission. When Joseph uses the time machine to save his twin brother Echo it messes with time and now Sheridan never escaped from Traventon. Joseph has to save her before her mind is wiped clean. Echo is trying to help Taylor destroy the time strainer but he has his own agenda too and nothing is going smoothly.  Will they be able to escape Traventon, again?

I had my doubts about the sequel to Erasing Time. Where could she possibly go from the end of that book? Everything was tied up tightly and resolved. Wow. Was I ever wrong! An amazing sequel! CJ Hill (aka Janette Rallison) is a talented and humorous Young Adult novelist. She has such twists and turns in her story and has done such a good job of world-building that she is free to develop her characters. I love her sense of humor! It is so rare to find a novelist who can write humor, that when you find one, you treasure her. I rarely give 5 stars, but this book is something special! (I listened to this on audible and the reader does a wonderful job. He varies his British/American accents; it may not be 100% in keeping with the book's futuristic world, but it is definitely helpful in differentiating characters.) * poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

*****may be spoilers if you haven't read the books yet***** I picked up the first book in this series the other day for a "Random Read" and when I finished I couldn't let it stop I quickly picked this one up.  I think I liked this even better than the first book :).   It was full of excitement. I don't know how authors like being compared to other books, but I cannot tell you how many times "the capital" from "Hunger Games" came into my head while reading.  The outfits in this book are HILARIOUS.  Something I picture the people in the capital wearing :).  The picture Hill paints in my head is absolutely wonderful.  It makes me giggle to think that the future will have us dressing like clowns, all while thinking it's the latest fashion.  hehehe!  It was fantastic. I knew by the name of the book that Echo would be back.  What I didn't expect is the Allana coming back as well.  Can I just say, that some people should just stay dead.  I didn't like her from the minute she came into the picture.  I laughed out loud, when Taylor stunned her just for fun.   Okay, maybe not for fun, but because she was so stinking annoying.  Every time Allana would argue about something I was wishing that Taylor would say "two seconds are up...zap".  Oh, it was awesome. Ren and Lee are new characters in this book and they cracked me up the whole time.  Their banter with each other was awesome.  They were such great characters.  Echo made me mad a the beginning bringing his girlfriend back to the future, but then he grew on me.  He was so funny.   I knew the minute that Echo came into play the whole "time stream" would change.  Of course it had to.  Right?  Sheridan got the short end of that decision.  I loved how strong Sheridan was in this book.  People expected her to be so weak because she wasn't the "smart" one, but boy did she show them.  She was awesome.  I was a little conflicted because when she was being questioned and tortured, I was sometimes laughing.  She would say the funniest things just to let Rielly know he hadn't gotten to her.  It was awesome. Xavier is a new character in this book, and I have to say that I loved him.  When he was introduced I honestly thought he was going to ruin a lot of things, but he did the opposite.  He made the story so much better.  He isn't a huge character but I loved him just the same.  He just added a little something to the book.   I loved the way this book kept me engaged.  It was full of danger, laughter, and excitement.  I couldn't put it down.  It's a good thing I don't sleep very much any more, because It was 2:00 a.m. when I finally finished.  Even, then I didn't want it to be over.  It was just such a great book. I think the thing I like the most about Erasing Time, and Echo in Time, is that they are clean.  It just goes to show that a GREAT book can be clean, and fabulous at the same time :)! Source:  I bought this book for myself and my daughter.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

I read Erasing Time just over a year ago, and was a little worried that I'd be lost reading book two so much later. However, the author did a great job of recapping over the first few chapters. I don't considered myself a sci-fi fan, but I've really liked this series. The time travel idea, and the crazy future depicted are intriguing. There is a lot of action in Echo in Time and the different personalities of the main characters kept their mission exciting. There were also several twists and turns that I didn't see coming that added to the excitement. A couple of times I thought parts of the story had some great symbolism. I loved the sacrifices that were made, and the love for a wayward child. Tears came to my eyes at least once. Although I imagine this series is going to continue, the ending of Echo in Time was satisfying-no cliffhanger that has me frustrated that there's not another book out yet. This is a great YA series, with lots of action and a touch of romance. As always, CJ Hill writes a clean and entertaining story.
