Mom spoke so highly of Danele’s writing that I was eager to get my paws on her debut novel, Time Tsunami.
Okay, so here’s the scoop, and I’m not talking a pooper-scooper either, this is a good one. There’s a girl named Gil. Well, a woman really and she surfs through time to prevent people from ending up on death-row. The only problem is on this particular job, saving one person might result in other deaths. It’s a conundrum. (Mom had to explain that word to me, but I still don’t get it).
There’s romance in the works too with Will and he’s worried that Gil might not survive. He wants her to come home but she wants to do her job. If she fails then the effects will destroy the timeline.
Sounds a little like Doctor Who meets the future and actually tries to change the past. But he doesn’t surf and Gil does. Sounds cool right? Surfing time? That’d be fine if I liked water. It’s fine to drink but not fond of baths or getting my feet wet. I can enjoy it in a book though.
Twists and turns keep the reader from wanting to put this book down. Mom stopped petting me as she read it she got so engrossed in the story. And she thought it was more fun than tummy rubs. Really? As if anything could be more wonderful than that. Apparently this is.
Danele writes compelling stories. It would be cool if this were a movie someday. Timey-wimy stuff ain’t got nothing on Time Tsunami. It’s way better. I give it five bones, again, because I’m a dog. I don’t do stars.
