Synopsis: Did you ever want to wake up to a different life? Awaken in 1168 as a prince who must live by his wits to save his own life. In 1911 as a youth, striving to keep hold of his sanity while those he loves turn away. In 1996 as a teenage girl surrounded by conspiracy. And, in an unspecified future, as a consciousness trapped inside a weaponized machine.
I found it hard to follow along at first with the transitions from lifetime to lifetime. I also wasn’t quite sure if Gamma was the 4th life or something totally different. Nor was it clear why the main character had to keep traveling through time. It also made me wonder was the transfer between lives being controlled in some way by the unspecified future. The story itself is unique, well-written and engaging. The reader begins to see the bleed over into from one life to another which was interesting. The characters are authentic and credible, matching the points in time that they live. With the jumping from life to life, it does require the reader to pay attention closely because it is very fast paced.
I have often wondered if the feelings of deja vu are caused by memories being transfered to a person from another life. I think it would be confusing to be aware of living another life and the author captures the complexity of the situation. Just a caution there are some violent scenes that are sometimes gory and graphic. Overall, science fiction and fantasy fans who like time travel paradoxes will enjoy this book.
