Today we’re visiting another book by the author I gushed about in this earlier post. And, no, this book is not in the Quantum Cop series. But it still contemplates the nature of our reality. So what is this mystery book?

Temporal Dreams, by Lesley L. Smith is an emotional journey with two main characters. Kairi is an orphan and a college student who discovers a latent ability to travel back in time while she sleeps. Meanwhile on the other side of the world, Kyle has been training with his family his whole life to prepare for the Dreaming, or time travel. Time travel can be incredibly dangerous, and there are a lot of rules to follow to avoid breaking reality. Rules that Kairi doesn’t know. Will everyone survive all her changes to the timeline? And is somebody manipulating Kyle and his family into Dream related accidents?

This was a page-turner with a plot twist that I never even suspected. But it also explores the bonds between friends and family. Plus, there’s a neat little spin on déjà vu.

Rating: 5 out of 5
