Los Angeles, 2070. Christine Stewart is excited about her vacation with her son. All she needs to do before embarking on her vacation is to complete a routine task at her job. The task is simple: travel back in time in 1867 to Oklahoma to deport a cyber-criminal and come back to present-day LA. However, tragedy strikes when the system goes down. Christine—along with scores of other transporters around the world—is stuck in the past with zero supplies and bare minimum training. This is still not the end of her woes. Due to a glitch in the system, she is thrown further back into the past and thousands of miles away from her original drop location. Does Christine succeed in getting back to her son alive? Read No Way Home by Christy Cooper-Burnett to discover more about Christine’s fate.

An intriguing premise and good execution sum up No Way Home. Time travel is tricky to work with. If not done well, it can lead to serious plot inconsistencies. Thankfully, this book is free from such loopholes. Christy Cooper-Burnett is aware of to what extent time travel can go wrong. Early in the book, she seamlessly ties in a chapter on repercussions of time-altering events to the Salem witch trials; the effect is gut-wrenching. This, coupled with the brisk pace and smooth flow of the story, results in an engaging time travel story. Further, Cooper-Burnett pens a believable plot with well-developed characters, each possessing his/her distinct voice. The author has done her homework since she portrays each of the eras distinctly and realistically. She steered me to a satisfying finale, neatly wrapping up all the events in the book; however, she does leave room for a sequel. No Way Home by Christy Cooper-Burnett is recommended for fans of time travel, action, and adventure.
