Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information--but not everyone made it back to the present alive. Now Elena's dealing with her survivor's guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she's done with time travel and Aether Corporation. But Aether's not done with her--or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether's latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort. They arrive in a future that's amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation's reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events. But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost--or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything--including their relationship--to save their friends. The second book in the New York Times bestselling Future Shock trilogy.
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily received a copy of Future Threat, in exchange for an honest review.
I really wanted to love Future Threat. I loved the first in this series. It was new, it was unique. It was awesome.
Future Threat was a really intense read, but it fell a little short for me. They had to go back to the future numerous times. I was frustrated with them! I was like, no! don’t do it. I felt like every time they were going to mess something else up. But something that Briggs did that was pretty great was the mystery behind what was happening. I honestly, never would have guessed and I didn’t.
I love these characters. But Elena was driving me nuts lol. Adam is super in love with her, everything about her but she kept pushing and pushing her away. I just wanted to slap some sense into her and different points in the story. Future Threat is an enjoyable read, despite all of that.
Like I said before, Future Threat is intense, it’s nail biting. I couldn’t turn the page quick enough. But I didn’t connect with the story the way I did with the first. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
