Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of A Remedy in Time by Jennifer Macaire as part of her wonderful blog tour.
So before I even comment on the novel, I think we should all take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous cover! Wow! I really love it, it really captures the essence of the book.
This is not a novel I would ordinarily have chosen to read, but sometimes its nice to read something outside of your usual genres. A Remedy in Time centres around Robin, a woman who is highly intelligent but with a murky past. In fact, she remembers almost nothing about her childhood. In the year 3377 this makes her a dangerous woman in society, but her intelligence and subsequent work on the much needed vaccine for the fatal strain of typhus that is currently affecting the planet all work in her favour. She should never have been considered for a time travel mission, but her expertise are deemed essential in finding a cure for the disease that is destroying humanity, and halting the movement of people between Earth and Mars.
Jake is one of Robin’s closest friends, and the son of Dr Powell, Robin’s mentor. They can’t seem to stay away from each other, despite Jake being in an on/off relationship with Helen. Jake is also less than keen on Robin time travelling. Whilst time travelling is now used regularly, Robin is due to go back 12,000 years which is at the absolute limit of the time travelling capabilities.
As I’m sure you can imagine, Robin’s journey does not go smoothly. It is full of danger and mystery, as well as pre-historic beasts that Robin (and we as the reader) could only ever imagine. Pre-historic natural history is really brought to life in this novel in such a unique way, and I actually really enjoyed it! It was completely different to any novels I’ve read before, but it was really nice to escape to such a different landscape. So if you’re looking for something a bit different, this could be the book for you. There’s plenty of danger, there’s some twists and turns, and there’s a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure! So maybe go and grab yourself a copy of A Remedy in Time and immerse yourself in the pre-historic timeline!
