Reviewed by Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers' Favorite C.M. Halstead sets the stage for his Tripper Series with book one, Trip Walk. The year is 2114, and time travel is organized by a special government agency. An elite team is trained in a special underground facility. These guardians of the future have been chosen to travel through time “to change things and make them right.” Hand picked from a unique time in history, each tripper brings a special talent to the team. Among the group are three newbies: Mackenzie, June and John. They are joined by their mysterious leader, James Grey, his second in command Miokel, Charles the professional hit man, and Rosa, a former Marine turned SWAT in her era. Trained and ready, the mission launch is a go, it is time for a Trip Walk. Life as they know it is about to change more than they can imagine. Trip Walk by C.M. Halstead is a science fiction novel about time travel. Halstead opens with a prologue, describing his thoughts about the possibility of time travel. This technique baits the reader for what lies ahead. The first several chapters introduce the cast of characters. Intertwined with the characterization, Halstead subtly includes the plot scheme. Once the characters travel through time, the pace picks up, peaks and descends. Although the Trip Walk was exciting, the mission comes and goes quickly, leaving many unanswered questions. Halstead’s military background prevails, as his writing technique reflects the planning, strategy and logistics of the mission at hand. Trip Walk sets the stage for its sequel; it leaves the reader curious and anticipating more.
