Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.
When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.
Well, Kim Harrison is back with a brand new series and boy does she comes out kicking with a futuristic, time traveling tale that is sure to delight those of us missing the genius behind the Hollows.
This story focuses on Peri, a drafter (time traveler), who is sent on the run by her own government and left hanging by her man. She must learn how to survive when all she took as truth falls away and she realizes it was all lies. With the unique ability to alter time, Peri can try and fix her future. The problem with that is each time she makes a change she loses some of her past. Trying to piece together the fragments of her memory, Peri finds an unlikely ally in a world filled with corruption and struggle for power.
Peri is the bomb. She is strong and comes out fighting even when everything she knows falls apart.
A little bit of slow start, typical of any new series with world building but jumps in fast and furious with plenty of intrigue, mystery and heartfelt emotions.
For me, I’m not crazy about time traveling stories. That being said, I really enjoyed The Drafter. Mostly because, I love Harrison’s marvelous ability to write relatable and realistic people in this totally fictional world.
I received this ARC copy of The Drafter from Gallery Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 1, 2015.
