I read and loved Time Tsunami, the first book in this series, and got this one as soon as it became available. This one can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading the first book to get additional background on the characters. I was not disappointed in this one, and I read it in one setting because I couldn't put it down. It is a non-stop action and suspense time travel story with combined with faith, romance and a touch of humor and had an ending I didn't see coming. The author certainly knows how to pull the reader into the story line and lives of the characters. I am definitely looking forward to her next book.

The second book in the Time Counselor Chronicles is just as exciting as the first. Ms Rotharmel delivers an exciting punch to anyone looking for a sci-fi adventure. The characters are well established and with the interesting development of several plots intertwining and weaving together to the end, this book cannot be put down. Once again we visit TEMCO Labs and the time counselors. Dan and Gil arrive back through the blue glow with their new son. The baby’s delivery causes Gil’s old injuries to flair, and she and Dan remain at the hospital while the other employees keep it from them that something is dreadfully wrong at the lab. Again I’m impressed with the writing craft displayed in this series of books and wildly impressed with Ms. Rotharmel’s talent. Can’t wait for number three!

Laura and Peter, in an attempt to rescue students from an assignment in the past, find themselves in situations where they not only learn about themselves, but each other. Their friendship blossoms and they must evaluate whether or not their relationship will be put each other in harm's way. Characters from "Time Tsunami" appear and they weave in and around new ones. Friendships form, some are tested, and yet others die. Each character is thoughtfully written to the point where the reader can see themselves in some of them. This book has elements of mystery, psychological thriller, romance, adventure, and comedy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be immersed in another world for a few days. I couldn't put it down! I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own

Time Trap is a story with a lot of moving parts to it. At just over 450 pages, we are swept up into this team of time counselors that are made up of friends and family members. There is a large cast of characters, even some duplicate from other time lines; however all were important and essential to the team and the story. At times I dislike such large sets of characters in my books, but author Rotharmel made this work and I felt like I was watching a season of a well written and thought out TV series. We did not just watch one romance develop, but several, and since this is the second book in the series, we were caught up with previous storylines. I did not read the first book but that did not affect my reading enjoyment of this second one nor was I confused in anyway. I just had missed out on probably a great story. This was really a character driven story, the time travel was important, but the people is what made the story move forward. The time travel mythos was interesting to watch, and as a fan of time travel shows like Dr. Who and enjoying the new one Timeless, I really enjoyed this author’s take on time travel and if it was possible what a team of professionals could do with it to help others. This story has a really sadistic villain as well, and he is shrouded in mystery. Boy is he ever evil and relentless in his drive to hurt TEMCO (the company’s name) and the things he does to these people was cringe worthy and so inhumane that he had me looking over my shoulder. So be prepared for some violence and scary parts, but the author does give us lighter moments of romance and humor. This book I would definitely recommend if you are in for a story that reads like a series. It ended well and we were given some clues as to what would happen in the future for these characters; however they have a huge battle that is taking shape for them. I very much look forward to continuing this series. I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

I don’t read a lot of time travel novels. While the subject has always been one that intrigues me, it also makes my head spin with the various problems associated with it: what happens, for example, if you meet yourself when travelling through time? It always seemed like too much thinking rather than enjoying, that I’d be searching for the plot holes before I even started reading. Perhaps it was the added suspense element that attracted me, or knowing it came from a Christian worldview, but I am certainly glad I picked up this second book in The Time Counselor Chronicles—it is a thoroughly enjoyable and uplifting read that is also a suspenseful thriller. There is a lot of excellent spiritual content in this book, encompassing topics like spiritual warfare, forgiveness, what we look for in our future spouse and how we grow in our relationship with Christ, along with many other issues both subtle and obvious. I am impressed by the wide range of topics that naturally flow from events and the interactions between the characters. Granted I am reading it from a believer’s perspective about other believers, but I found the content and struggles to live a life glorifying to Christ even in difficult circumstances to be refreshing and realistic. The pacing in this novel is excellent—just when the action is getting to be a bit much, Rotharmel backs off and focuses on the various romances for a bit. There is more than one in this book and while one in particular gets the most development, the others are by no means neglected. Several beautiful romantic moments even had my eyes watering and I love that it isn’t only between dating or engaged characters that those exchanges are happening; the married couples are often as romantic as those toward the beginning of their relationships. This is a complex and somewhat confusing plot due to the multiple timelines that intertwine; only the excellent writing and the aid of several helps in the back of the book help to keep acronyms and characters straight so I didn’t feel totally lost at certain points. For that reason, I would encourage readers to begin with the first book in the series as it will largely remedy many of the difficulties I experienced. In a lot of ways, this would be an excellent read for older teens—the fantasy aspect and time-travel plotline is highly appealing to that age group, but I would caution that it can also be a highly intense read at times. While nothing crosses the line, sensitive readers may become uncomfortable in certain passages. There is really so much in here to encourage readers of all ages, but especially those in the middle of those difficult teen years where many wonder if things will ever get better and if all the drama and stress is worth the effort of getting up in the morning. While not a short book, I am still stunned by how much the author packs into this novel: humor, spiritual themes, mystery, suspense and romance are all well represented. The writing itself is exquisite in places—simply beautiful and even heartbreaking at the picture they paint of our broken human condition and our ineffective attempts to protect those we love without the help of friends and, ultimately, God. I would highly recommend this book for mature older teens on up. I received a free copy of this book from the author and publisher through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a favorable review and the opinions expressed are honest and my own.

Another romance amidst the astounding horror of a TEMCO project gone horribly awry. When a time counselor works to save a vulnerable teen in the near past, they unwittingly unleash a murderer who will stop at nothing to exact revenge on all those blamed for removing the object of desire. Book Two in the Time Counselor series takes a dramatic and gruesome turn even while loose ends are woven throughout and the future personas of those involved not only reach back to help at the exact right moments, but look fondly upon unfolding events. This begs the question, which is addressed in the story, of whether and especially why not prevent catastrophe when able to do so. Shouldn't suffering be avoided when possible? The answer is one for the ages and the subject of good discussion. Told in multiple viewpoints in voices from the past and future, readers of the series, and new readers will welcome old friends and nemeses, find new villains to keep you awake at night, and a fluid, highly intertwined and entertaining visit to the future, the past, and a dramatic present as the founder of TEMCO is both available and unavailable to help his staff during their most dire project so far. Be warned: This ride is not for the faint of heart, despite the occasional lighter moments during the pursuit of true soulmates and the search for everlasting love. I especially enjoyed the creative clues used to track the murderer. Recommended for those who love a good conundrum with a truly warped antagonist and uber determined victors.
