Review: Twist by Karen Akins

Twist by Karen Akins

The unbelievably thrilling sequel to the time-travel YA novel Loop.

Bree Bennis finally has it all—a non-comatose mother, an uber-hot (albeit anachronistic) boyfriend named Finn, and a new-found mission to protect the timeline from those who would skew it for their own gain. But when she leans over one day to smooch said boyfriend, her lips meet those of her arch-nemesis Wyck instead. The timeline has been altered, and Bree is caught in the crosshairs. But when she goes back to repair the damage, she is stopped by none other than her Future Self, who delivers an urgent message: Someone is kidnapping Shifters from the distant past. It’s up to Bree to stop them. But first, she has to figure out who... and why.

To follow the trail of chronocrumbs, Bree reluctantly accepts her new undercover gig as Wyck’s girlfriend. Everything goes spiffy until Finn shows up in the 23rd century on the eager arm of a gorgeous fellow Shifter, Blark. Even as Bree struggles with jealousy, she battles the nagging dread that Finn might be better off with someone less chronologically complicated. Her worst fear is confirmed when Finn becomes the kidnapper’s next victim. As Bree zeroes in on the culprit, they unravel her life one timeline-change at a time. She realizes that she alone has the power to save herself and everyone she loves. But to do that, she may lose Finn forever.
First Line:"There are forty seven rules every Shifter must obey."

Review: Twist is the second and I believe final book in the Loop series. I have been looking forward to reading Twist ever since I read Loop last year and I really had a blast. I'm glad it's a duology but I would not have been upset if this was trilogy just because I really did grow attatched to the characters. Seriously if you love time travel and sci-fi books check this series out it definitely deserves a lot more attention.

The book had even more action then the last, it was just non-stop one thing after the next and I loved it. It was never boring and yes there are several timelines and multiple changes being made to the timelines and different versions of Bree and other characters popping up from the future and the past but as crazy as it all seems just like the first book Akins did a great job in not confusing the reader and it was all very easy to understand and keep up with.

Bree thought everything was fine after the craziness from the last book but then someone is making changes to her timeline and screwing things up for her very badly and that includes things with Finn. Then Shifters start getting kidnapped and ICE we find out is even more devious then we first thought and Bree is running around trying to fix it all while slowly losing hope since every step she takes forward in fixing things someone is right there messing it all up and she has to take two steps back.

Then there was the ending which I think was perfect, yes in a way it was bittersweet but you know what... I get it and it makes sense. Overall this is one of the better time traveling books I have come across and I highly recommend the duology, both books were fast paced and a complete page turner.
