Overview

When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that's so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can't go back home.

The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The same government has implanted tracking devices in the citizens, limiting and examining everything they do. Taylor and Sheridan have to find a way out of the city before the government discovers their secrets. To complicate matters, the moblike Dakine has interest in getting hold of them too. The only way for the girls to elude their pursuers is to put their trust in Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.

Full of adrenaline-injected chases and heartbreaking confessions, Erasing Time explores the strength of the bonds between twins, the risks and rewards of trust, and the hard road to finding the courage to fight for what you believe in.

Catapulted 400 years into the future, 18-year-old twins Sheridan and Taylor Bradford are appalled by the Brave New World they encounter. Mankind’s first time machine, the Time Strainer, has brought them forward by accident, apparently because, like a bad Internet search, their names resembled those of the target, scientist Tyler Sherwood. Worse, there’s no way back, and the future is a fascist dystopia. Hill’s (Slayers) vision teeters on the edge of farce in both premise and details, yet never takes that step too far. Sheridan focuses on the values of her upbringing while adjusting, sometimes wrenchingly, to a new world. By her side is Echo, the bereaved survivor of another set of twins, who understands the girls’ desire to escape the domed city-state of Traventon. As a “wordsmith,” a historian and linguist, he can help bridge the gap in their knowledge—but can he be trusted? This age-old jailbreak plot is seasoned with plentiful, often amusing novelties and historical misinterpretations. It’s a mash-up of Weird Science and Erewhon, and though the social message can get heavy-handed, the fun is never far behind. Ages 13–up. Agent: George Nicholson, Sterling Lord Literistic. (Sept.)
