Elise Morley is an expert on the past who's about to get a crash course in the future.
For years, Elise has been donning corsets, sneaking into castles, and lying through her teeth to enforce the Place in Time Travel Agency's ten essential rules of time travel. Someone has to ensure that travel to the past isn't abused, and most days she welcomes the challenge of tracking down and retrieving clients who have run into trouble on their historical vacations.
But when a dangerous secret organization kidnaps her and coerces her into jumping to the future on a high-stakes assignment, she's got more to worry about than just the time-space continuum. For the first time ever, she's the one out-of-date, out of place, and quickly running out of time.

Excellent book! If you are a time-travel fan, this is definitely a good addition to the genre. Great descriptive writing, past and future is believable. Only complaint I would have is that I wish the book was twice as long. Looking forward to the next installment.
I enjoyed the book. Easy read, kept my attention and wanting me to read the next book.
On the scale of fantasy jobs, traveling through time for a living has got to be right up there at the top. That is what Elise Morley does in The Continuum. Elise works for PITTA, Place In Time Travel Agency. On the outside, it looks just like any other travel agency, but for their specially referred clients, PITTA is so much more. Why just get away to a new location, when you can get away to a new time as well? This is the service that PITTA offers. You can travel back in time, to whatever era you want, as long as you follow the rules. It’s when you break the rules that Elise gets involved. Those who do not come back when they are scheduled to do so, are assigned a retriever. Elise or one of her coworkers will come back and get you to bring you home. It is on such a retrieval mission that everything starts to go wrong. When Elise returns she is suddenly involved with a secret organization who is forcing her to go into the future on a retrieval. It’s one thing to go into the past, you know what to expect. It’s history, and in most cases, well documented. You know how to find food, lodging, you’ll know the customs, where to find things. The future, however, is an unknown entity. Elise must jump 200 years into the future, with little knowledge of what she’ll find when she gets there, or how to get along on a day-to-day basis. Compelling And Thrilling It is true that I have always been a bit of a sucker for a good Time Travel novel. But even so, I found Continuum to be exceptionally interesting, compelling, and thrilling. Elise’s excursions into the past were interesting and exciting. Her trip into the future, a little scary and even more exciting. I exceptionally enjoyed the way the author managed to make even the tiniest detail important, now or in the future, to create this fabulous novel. I will definitely be on the lookout for more from Wendy Nikel. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
