Book Review

Erasing TimeErasing Time by C. J. Hill

Twins, Taylor and Sheridan, are pulled into the 25th century by the Time Strainer and are unable to return to their own time.  Finding themselves in a city where the Government tracks, observes, and controls its citizens, and barely able to understand the language, they decide to escape the city.  A young man named Echo claims he wants to help them accomplish this seemingly impossible goal, but can they trust him?

Exciting, intriguing, and full of unpredictable character development, this is an excellent science fiction story, but more importantly, it is a story about people and what they care about.

These songs range from heroic and regal to mysterious and melancholy, epic and exciting to vibrant and jubilant, menacing and dark to graceful and beautiful.  Highlights include tracks 2, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, and 18, although every song is worth listening to. This is one of the best soundtracks I own.
