Book Review: Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs


Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs

What do you do when the future is too late, and the present is counting down to an inevitable moment?

Elena Martinez has street smarts, the ability for perfect recall, and a deadline: if she doesn’t find a job before she turns eighteen, she’ll be homeless. But then she gets an unexpected offer from Aether Corporation, the powerful Los Angeles tech giant. Along with four other recruits—Adam, Chris, Trent, and Zoe—Elena is being sent on a secret mission to bring back data from the future. All they have to do is get Aether the information they need, and the five of them will be set for life. It’s an offer Elena can’t refuse.

But something goes wrong when the time travelers arrive in the future. And they are forced to break the only rule they were given—not to look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future—and a murder—from happening. But changing the timeline has deadly consequences too. Who can Elena trust as she fights to save her life?

The first book in an unforgettable series about rewriting your destiny in the city of dreams.

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars!

I was pleasantly surprised with this book! I’m usually not a huge fan of time travel in books. They usually make me question worm holes and the fabric of reality. Time travel books usually touch on those subjects for a few pages and then disregard them, this one didn’t and I was intrigued. The characters were great, it was fast paced and really kept you guessing until the end.
Elena Martinez is the kind of character I really like. She’s tough, smart and doesn’t take anyone’s shit. I love her. The other characters were awesome too, very interesting and they weren’t tropes of characters.
What I loved most about this book was the plot. Again, time travel books really arent my cup of tea but this one was fantastic. It was a time travel murder mystery, and it was banging. I’m excited for the next one. Highly recommend it!
