Time Trap: Red Moon Trilogy book 1

In book one of this unusual science fiction, time travel trilogy, USA Today Bestseller Micah Caida delivers an other-worldly thriller with an explosive finish.

Rayen wakes up in a strange place called Albuquerque with no memory of how she landed in a desert where she's captured. While the authorities search for a way to identify her, she's sent to an unusual institution where she's shocked to see paper. When a power inside her manifests unexpectedly, she opens a portal, sending her and two unlikely sidekicks to a place harboring a deadly secret that can destroy this world ... and the future. All she wants is to regain her memory and go home. The only person who can help her is an elite fighter of the future, who is trapped in a fantastical world where killing the enemy and surviving is all that matters. With one impulsive action to save a child, she proves she's his enemy.

A breathtaking debut trilogy where Isaac Asimov meets Hunger Games.

About the Author

USA Today bestseller Micah Caida is the melding of two voices, two personalities and two minds—New York Times bestseller Dianna Love and USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham—which often turns up the strangest ideas. Micah enjoys exploring how different characters react and deal with similar situations. Life is often filled with the unexpected – both good and bad. While creating the Red Moon series, Micah hit upon a very unusual “what if” that exploded into an epic story filled with teenagers who face impossible odds, but are the only ones who can save the world from itself.

This is a good read for any age. We are introduced to 17 year old Rayen. She materializes near a school in the southwest hearing a voice telling her that her name is Rayen. She has no memory of who she is or where she came from. She is carted off to the school where she connects with another girl and boy her age. They are told to go into a room housing old laptop computers and to choose one to work with. There is a prize for the winner to going to a college to further his/her education. As they each touch this old computer at the same time, they are drawn into it and come out into another world which looks so different. Strange plants, animals, and a group of young children being taken care of and protected by 16 and 17 year olds. As soon as they turn 18, they disappear. Many in the group have special powers, healing, levitation, etc. There is plenty of action as Rayen finds out she possess some powers of her own.

Time Trap by Micah Caida is the first book in the Red Moon trilogy, which is a sci fi, dystopian young adult fantasy in a futuristic world. This story starts off immediately with a bang. You need to pay attention, or you will be lost very quickly. Rayen is our heroine (she is 17), and she wakes up at the start of the story with no memory. She ends up in a private exclusive school, under surveillance, since she is truly an unknown. Rayen befriends Gabby, a strange and different young girl. In class, she is teamed with Tony, a handsome ego centric computer geek (usually they are jocks lol); and he looks down at both Rayen and Gabby as misfits. Before you blink, all three are sucked through a computer, into a nightmare. They are in an alien land which has a red moon. As they walk around trying to find a way to go back, they find themselves captured by man-eating plants. It is here we see Rayen use a fire burning energy power that frees them; a power she knows nothing about, nor how to control it. As they desperately look for help in this strange hostile land, they hear sounds of screaming and run to discover a monstrous beast attempting to harm a child, and a group of children surrounding the beast. Rayen bravely reacts automatically to defend the child, and again using her power, manages to kill the beast. You would think the young children, led by an older teenage boy, would be thankful. But not so, as Rayen, Gabby and Tony are taken as prisoners to the group’s compound. All of this happens fairly fast. The action was wild and furious, and early on I was wondering what I got myself into, since I was a little confused. But as we end up in the compound of the children, we learn about how they too are stuck in this dangerous sphere, spending their time trying to survive. Micah Caida gives us lots of details about this futuristic world, with Mystiks, who have magical powers; and Tecknati, who are technical geniuses. Why are all these Mystik children in this Sphere? Why do the Technati agents try to kill them? What kind of world is this? I will not give any spoilers at this point. There is much to learn, as the world building is huge, and once you learn more and more, things become clearer and the rest of the story is a very exciting tale of survival. Caida has created some really wonderful characters, such as Rayen, Gabby, Tony, Callan, Mathias, Vru, Zilya, Etoi and villains (SEOH & the Tecknati’s). The ending was exciting, with a cliffhanger that makes us want to come back to find out more. I did enjoy the attraction between Callan and Rayen. I marvel at how Micah Caida has created this world of young children/teenagers to fight a survival of the fittest; and make us believe in it. Now that I am hooked, I can’t wait for Time Return.

When I first started this book, I thought it must be for youths (I an 67 years old). I stuck with it and am glad I did! A wonderful story line with many of the areas in which I like to read, sci-fi and futuristic and time travel, etc. It held me enthralled and I cannot wait for the next installment! Well worth the read!
