Book Description (via Goodreads): Superheroes, adventure, science fiction, pop culture, and romance fuse in J.T. Bock’s third UltraSecurity book TimeTrap.
UltraAgent TimeTrap is hiding out. This peace-loving, universe-traveling hero is tired of fighting Aztec gods, sociopathic scientists, and her reality TV–star mother. She needs a vacation from using her superpower. With comfy slippers and streaming movies, she’s taken refuge with her new boyfriend, Max Martin, in his high-tech, gated home.
Max owes TimeTrap his life. She saved him from a dimensional-jumping kidnapper, and he’s fallen hard for her. He promises to protect her at any cost. Whatever TimeTrap wants, he’ll give her.
But is she really safe with Max?
Because TimeTrap has uncovered a classified project in his basement lab, which shoves her into the clutches of a mysterious organization and a life-sucking entity called the Dark.
A journal that belonged to Max’s deceased grandfather might hold the key to helping TimeTrap. But to decode the mysterious journal, Max must do the unthinkable and embrace the evil energy that threatens both universes. He would do anything to rescue her, but can he win back her trust, or will he become her worst nightmare?
I received a complimentary copy of TimeTrap by J.T. Bock and have chosen to read and post an honest review. I have given this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was a very interesting sci-fi fiction book which I thoroughly enjoyed reading! This is the third instalment in the UltraSecurity Series by J.T. Bock, which can be read as a standalone novel. This book follows the lives of Kali, an UltraAgent and likeable heroine, and her boyfriend Max Martin, a CEO smart, geeky genius. In the previous book to this series Kali saves Max’s life and this third instalment starts with everything being hunky-dory between them, but when Kali discovers a secret that Max has been hiding from her, it’s a question of whether Kali can trust Max again. When Kali finds a journal that belonged to Max’s grandfather, she finds herself being sucked into a portal. We follow them on a journey through time travel where our characters flee between dimensions to stop an alien force called Dark. In this novel we are met by aliens, transhumans, parallel worlds and villains.
One of my favourite narratives is to read from two different perspectives and that’s exactly the style I received from this book which I thoroughly enjoyed. I really liked the characters which are introduced in this book, I thought they were well-developed and interesting characters who I’d love to read and learn more about. I loved Bock’s writing and thought that her world building and timeline skills were very strong. Especially as this is the third instalment to this series and she’s able to fill in the reader with enough details regarding what had happened in the previous books to help keep you up to date without revealing too much that could ruin the fun of reading the earlier instalments. Although I would love to read the first two books prior in this series as I like to have a sequenced timeline of events (it’s a peace of mind thing).
This was a really great story which kept me intrigued and engaged throughout. I hope to read more of J.T. Bock’s material in the future and look forward to reading her previous books in this series.
