About the Book

Welcome to the TIME WAR

STEIN has been with the Hollows for as long as she can remember. Taken as a child, she has no memories of her past—and that’s always been fine by her. Until the day she stumbles across a hidden journal containing the devastating truth about her paternity. Now everything she thought she knew—and everyone she thought she could trust—has changed. The truth about who she is and where she came from is a secret so deep, it will rock the Hollows and the Tesla Institute alike.

ETHAN is left with a serious problem after what should have been a routine mission. He’s fractured—a break between mind and body that leaves him at the mercy of his Rifter abilities, which are quickly tearing him apart. He will have to trust the only person who might know how to fix him, a mysterious Rifter named Stewart Stills, who seems to have a special connection with the time stream.

In a battle for control of the time stream, the past and the future will collide, either saving mankind—or destroying it.

The Tesla Institute stands on one side of the battle. Controlled by the mind of one of the greatest inventors in history, the Institute recruits gifted, young time travelers called Rifters. Those who survive his training are sent into history with the mission to preserve the time stream, recruit more of their kind, and better humanity through subtle, controlled event manipulation.

Standing in the way are the Hollows, a rogue group of Rifters who have vowed to put an end to the Tesla Institute—at all costs. They steal, cheat, and bend history to their own ends. Using children stolen from time as their personal armies, they fight not only for control of time itself, but also for self-preservation.

Reviewed by Melanie Newton
Both Prodigal and Riven have - Talk of war, a couple of the test subjects are brought in beaten and bloody, talk of disposing of someone (assuming killed). People forced to murder each other while under some kind of mind control. Quite graphic and is then forced to kill himself. Various fight scenes including attacks from weapons and hand to hand combat. Prodigal has a lot more 'medical' type experimentation mixed in and some of that is quite graphic. Riven has more 'war type violence.
Prodigal - Hell (Pits of Hell) - One use of Pissed 'Are you pissed at me for something?' Use of 'pissy' in similar context.
Riven - - Hell is used a couple of time - 'Hell Bent' 'Going To Hell on A unicycle' One use of Pissed to describe angry
Prodigal - some intimate kissing with Stein and Lex on a couple of occasions Riven - Some intimate kissing with Ember and Ethan
Prodigal - One scene of an adult drinking enough to be intoxicated and pass out (although they don't specify alcohol). There is a lot of talk of using medical based drugs but it is more in an 'experimenting with biological changes' hence the low rating. Riven - One mention of a truck smelling like stale cigarettes. Mention of a character with a tobacco pipe in his mouth (although they don't say he is actually smoking)

Super Natural Characters: None.
