Today never happened. Tomorrow is gone. Yesterday is a new day.
Miles Draven blames his birth parents for the problems in his life: classmates who torment him, seventeen years of rejection by foster families, and interminable loneliness. Despite his anger, he clings to an old photograph of his parents and two engraved, marble-sized glass orbs they entrusted to him the night of his birth—the same night they abandoned him. Miles hopes these objects will one day lead him back to his family and the answers he seeks. Those answers, however, defy all reason.
When assassins murder Miles’ foster family and target him, a mysterious young man named Matthias thwarts the gunmen and ushers him to safety. There he unveils irrefutable evidence that he’s both Miles' father and a time traveler. No longer safe in his own time, Miles travels with his father back to 1863 where he's finally reunited with his family. But all is not well. He soon learns of the bloody treachery that not only led to his untimely rescue from the future but also jeopardizes their mission to defeat an ancient evil that threatens the unwritten future of mankind.
Hey, hey, hey! I haven’t done a review in a while, right? It’s been an extremely long time, but you guys know how hard that college life actually is. The struggle is real my friends. I was given an ARC and here is my long awaited review!
I have to say, Miles Away took me on an adventure and it was truly riveting! Miles Away is basically about an adventure through time. Miles, the main character, takes us through different phases of time that we know of like the American Civil War. The main villain in the novel is Gaius. Gaius confronts Miles during these different events in time. Miles reminds me of the many teens out there who are passionate, impulsive, and just deeply craves to be accepted and to be part of a family. Teens can really relate to Miles on this one and will enjoy the action throughout this amazing read. Although, I do have to say, Miles does like to spit profanity here in there when personally, it wasn’t that neccessary.
The entire fighting/action scenes is what honestly made the book in my opinion. I have to applaud to Henderson for the awesome descriptive writing for making these scenes very captivating! If you love to read science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, and adventure, then you will DEFINITELY enjoy this book! The ending was excellent and I will definitely keep a look out for the next book in the Time Crisis Saga. Miles Away is out on November 22! Go get your copy today!
