Here is the summary from Goodreads: When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that’s so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can’t go back home. The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The moblike Dakine fights against the government, and somehow Taylor and Sheridan find themselves in the middle. The only way to elude them all is to trust Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.
What I Liked: 1) I've recently gotten into time travel - well, back when I read Julie Cross's Tempest. So I definitely loved that aspect of the story. This one took a different bend than what I was used to. Notice in the summary that it says they "can't go back". Because of the scientific explanation of their time traveling, there are reasons that they can't return to their time period. That was more than a little nerve-wracking for me, but was one of the many things that kept me flipping the pages. 2) Taylor and Sheridan. I thought their relationship was very well written, it was so easy for me to understand where each twin was coming from, despite their being so different. I thought they were developed well throughout the story both as individuals and as a duet. Taylor can be a little...irritating at times, but this book would not have worked as well as it did if not for her and Sheridan. 3) I LOVED how vastly different the world was 400 years from now. Even the language is something that Sheridan and Taylor have to work to understand. Some things are vaguely familiar to our MC duo, but it's a completely new world. And I loved how creative the author was in creating this new place. 4) Echo's story. This was heartbreaking. If the other parts of the book weren't great (which they are), this character and his back story would be worth the read anyway. There is always something about him that you know is holding him back from opening up completely, and when you find out what it is, he suddenly becomes an open book, and completely loveable. Not loveable in a teddy bear kind of way, more loveable in a you need a hug kind of way (and to stroke his probably smokin' abs.) Heh.
What I Didn't Like: I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about this book!
Overall Thoughts: Erasing Time is an intriguing story full of plot twists, time travel, some mysterious scientific discoveries, and exciting action. The main characters, twins Sheridan and Taylor are easy to get to know and relate to and lend the story an air of realism, but it's Echo who really steals the story. His story will absolutely touch your heart and leave you wanting more when you turn the final page.
