Time Warped by Micky O'Brady is a Young Adult science fiction novel with a powerful story and an equally incredible protagonist. Set 200 years in the future, our protagonist Nonie is a 17-year-old prodigy. However, that is not enough to validate her promotion to Lieutenant in the United Space Exploration Fleet. More concerning still, she is given a secret mission that just might be beyond her abilities. Nonie has no idea that she will travel 40 years back in time, be stranded, and meet the legendary Captain Kieran. Before they know it, they have formed a bond, but Nonie cannot move because everything has a consequence and may change the future forever. But sending Nonie back into the past is not an isolated event. Some sinister plans were made, and Nonie and Kieran are finally figuring out what these are.
The narrative of Time Warped is fantastic. It is intricate without being too complex and is written to perfection. At first, I thought this would be a simple YA tale, but Micky O'Brady surprised me. Nonie is not your typical YA protagonist. She is not a cry baby and is not desperate to give her family a better life. She is not a damsel in distress who desperately needs a companion to help her out. Nonie is a smart girl (smarter than her age) and knows what she needs to do to get out of a mess. Kieran and Nonie are partners and companions. No one has the upper hand in the relationship, and I love that. The descriptions blew my mind. From the opening scene till the very last one, the author created pictures with her words, making it easier for me to enjoy the story. The action is alive, the plot is perfect, and the development is on point!
