Hard Time by Jodi Taylor
About The Book
The Time Police do not have problems. They have challenges.
Idiots who want to change history have always proved ‘challenging’. But now temporal tourism is on the rise – highly illegal but highly lucrative. If you’re prepared to take the risk.
To face down this threat the Time Police will despatch their toughest undercover agents. Which is fine until the unthinkable happens. Replacements are needed fast and who better than three young officers who don’t even look the part?
Step forward Jane, Luke and Matthew. They may be about to graduate, but there’s still plenty of time for everything to go wrong. Throw in the Versailles time slip, a covert jump to Ancient Egypt and a race against Time itself and you’ve got yourself an assignment worthy of Team Weird.
This book is brilliant, it has humor, action, an interesting plot and some weird characters that has made this book one of my favorite reads for this 2020.
I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t read any of the previous series created by Jodi Taylor, but this will be mended soon, I already ordered the first book of this series and as soon as the next one will be available I’ll buy it, this much I loved this book
You may ask why this book is so amazing. First of all, the plot is different, a police bureau that travels through time to stop the wicked people who damage the time line we know. This is not a plot I’ve read before, it’s well explained, full of action and with some interesting twists that keeps the reader turning pages without noticing. The characters? They are not perfect, they don’t try to be perfect, they only want to be accepted as they are, don’t try to put labels on them, they will not ever fit in them. What surprised me about the characters is that there’s no romance between them, and I loved it, they have enough problems and secrets between them to add a secret relation to the team, it was refreshing that it was not part of the story.
As you’ve seen I haven’t talked much about the plot of the story, mainly because I think in this case is better if you start reading without knowing it, it’s not a lineal plot, there are some subplots involved in the story and there’s not a closed ending, remember that this is the second book of a series, it has to leave something open for the next one.
I started reading this book with high expectations and it has surpassed them, I laughed out loud a few times, I have bitten my nails scared for the characters life and I even shouted at others because of their actions! So believe me, this is a book you have to read, you don’t have to read any others of the story, there’s a little glossary at the beginning that will keep you updated on the relation between the characters and it’s enough. But once you’ll start reading you’ll not be able to stop, ready for “Hard Time”?
