REVIEW: "Sideswiped" by Kim Harrison

"Sideswiped" is the prequel short story to Kim Harrison's new series The Peri Reed Chronicles, a futuristic, yet urban fantasy, take on government agency operatives and time travel. Told from the perspective of Silas--brilliantly gifted with technology and science, he dreams of a career as an anchor, which would give him a future with lady-love Summer, a drafter.

A chance encounter brings new student Peri Reed into their lives.When Silas, Summer and their friends fail their final test before graduation, they enlist Peri's help to pull off a plan to change their fate.  Of course, the outcome differs vastly from what they'd hoped and further twisting of time leds to traumatic results.

I really enjoyed this glimpse into a new literary world from Harrison. Time travel books can be a bit dodgey but I think this spin on it sounds interesting.  The characters are engaging and readers get just enough insight to imagine that there will be some fallout based on the ending of this story and what is bound to come in The Drafter. I want to know more about Silas and Peri certainly seems sassy with an interesting backstory.

Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
