Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.

Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…

I loved this story. It helped me understand what was coming in the series. Love the characters, the tech and the unique alternate world.

First part of book hard to follow giving me a poor attitude regarding the rest of the story. I loved the Hollows series and was engaged in the story along with caring about the characters from the start. Maybe if I had read this before reading the Hollows I wouldn't of had such high expectations because this no where near as good as the Hollows. I'm going to go back and reread all the Hollows books again to remind how the Author was before this book came out.

I'm really going to miss the Hollow Series, but I loved Sideswiped, and look forward to reading The Drafter! Sideswiped is a great combination of suspense/thriller/futuristic sci-fi...and I can't wait to see where the books in this trilogy will take me.

I have been a huge fan of Kim Harrison's since the first time I picked up Dead Witch Walking, and though we've bid farewell to The Hollows, we say hello to Peri Reed. In Sideswiped, Kim has introduced a new world, where some people can reset time, and others can change memories. The detail in the world building, and the characters, was phenomenal, and I cannot wait to read more!

Sideswiped by Kim Harrison is a novella that starts the series The Peri Reed Chronicles. Silas is a researcher at a training facility for a company called, Opti, and is working to prove his alternative theory to explain how time rewrites work. A certain subset of the population has the inherent ability to rewrite small sequences of time. These Drafters require individuals, Anchors, who can help remember what these changes are. While Silas works as a researcher and has the capability to become an Anchor, his Drafter girlfriend and their friends are working to graduate from the Opti school. When their final exam goes awry and Silas is involved, the group of Drafters and Anchors enlist the help of younger Drafter, Peri Reed, to help them resolve their problems and potentially graduate. While this is a prequel to The Peri Reed Chronicles, Peri Reed is not the main character in this novella, but rather Silas is. This made the start of the novella initially confusing. The beginning of the novella was difficult to get into simply because it was confusing. Both in the beginning and later on, I had to listen to a few parts a few times to try to make sure I understood the mechanisms of the time travel as well as what had actually ended up happening in the time drafts. I also had a hard time placing the ages of characters. However, by half way through the novella, I was hooked! I loved each of the characters and they had their own distinct personalities. I specifically found Silas, Peri and the professors (even though they were a bit flat) to be the most well-defined. The plot was engrossing, exciting, and complex, which can be a little difficult in novellas. Having to figure out what was happening wasn’t necessarily a liability as this is a time travel story and in general they can be somewhat inherently confusing. Figuring out the story and the time travel logistics actually made the novella more fun for me. The narration by January LaVoy was good in general. I’m not sure if she did this on purpose, but one of the characters sounded like a whiny immature individual. I also felt that one of the characters’ voices seemed to change in tone abruptly. Overall, I really enjoyed this novella and I would recommend this novella to anyone who likes time travel stories with a touch of school antics. Audiobook purchased for review by ABR.

Sideswiped is a prequel Novella for Kim Harrison’s new series The Peri Reed Chronicles. This is a good introduction for this science fiction series. In Sideswiped we meet Silas and Peri. Releasing a prequel novella as the first book for a series can be tricky as I found it difficult to understand what was going on. The first scene is of Silas in a classroom so I was missing the when, where, why and how of the story. But as I read more it finally became clear that these were all students of time traveling. Silas and Peri have a bright future ahead of them – Peri was the youngest time traveler to be discovered and Silas’ research is on the brink of changing all the theories of time travel. A series of events brings them together and it is clear that fans will be taken on a suspenseful and action pact ride in this series. I wished there was more details revealed about this world so I hope the first book, The Drafter, answers all my questions. Despite the slow start I am intrigued with this series and can’t wait to read more.

If you could change something in your past, would you? Should you? I love Kim Harrison's worlds, and Peri Reed's prequel will reach out, grab you by the imagination, and yank you into a mind-twisting what if! I can't wait to read The Drafter. Thank you, Kim for another stunning cast of characters!
