If time shattered, taking away everything you loved, how far would you go to get it all back?...
Arriving at a lodge in Norfolk for a long weekend retreat, a group of friends meet for a thirtieth birthday celebration.
Before the weekend is over, five of them will die.
Trapped in a thirty-three-hour time-loop, only Hal and Kara have the ability to alter fate, and prevent the deaths of their friends.
But in order to unravel the secrets hidden within their own past, they must first learn how to adapt to the new rules of their reality.
Time, however, is a relentless force. One which will stop at nothing to ensure that events unfold exactly as destiny dictates.
With time no longer on their side, Hal and Kara will have to decide just how far they are willing to go to free themselves from their perpetual prison, and exactly what they are prepared to sacrifice to defeat an enemy that has already won.
Only one thing is certain…
Every action has a consequence.
Fir Lodge is a time travel adventure thriller, set amidst the unlikely backdrop of Norfolk, England.
Join Hal and Kara, as they attempt to restart the past, to change their future.
Review: I am going to start this review off by saying that this book has really been an influential story on me and my writing. As you all know, I don’t reveal spoilers in my reviews for the simple fact that I don’t want to ruin a novel for anyone. Each person should really form their own opinion. So, when I say that time travel is a them within these magically written words, it isn’t a spoiler. Sean did an amazing job with the theme.
Each chapter is well put together, and his writing style keeps a reader engaged. There wasn’t one time that I was felt, “thank God that chapter is over”. His idea of a “restarter” was A…MA…ZING. I loved that idea. I’ve watched movies, read books, and seen anime shows that displayed chronomanipulation, but I haven’t seen it used like Sean’s.
His character development was well planned out, and I didn’t have any issue keeping up with the progression of Hal and Kara. The characters are realistic and relatable. I may not have the ability to restart time, BUT I can still love these characters.
The world building was thorough and executed flawlessly. There were no plot holes in Fir Lodge. This is a series, so you will not get all the answers…or will you?
The cover gets an A from me. The cover will grab your attention. I love how the lodge isn’t the focus of the cover while the chrono-influenced Title shows what I think of time travel.
All around, this book is a MUST read. If you like reading Scifi…then this is your story. If you don’t like Scifi, but like time travel. Then grab a copy off Amazon today!
