The story centres around Captain Jennifer Hero. She is faced with the difficult decision of having to send her team 300 years ago to release a virus that will genetically reduced ‘Syndons' sociopathy tendencies. Intriguingly, she returns to 2015, to mourn the loss of a loved one.
It captivated me and I recommend this book to futuristic and science-fiction lovers.

30th Century: Escape is a science fiction novel with archaeological elements. I love how the author is knowledgeable in science. However, I don't like erotic novels. This isn't for me.

Escape is a science fiction novel. I'm not a big fan of this genre, but the reviews piqued my interest. Maybe I should give this a try.

The reviewer has done a great job of highlighting all the pros and cons of this book. In my estimation, the pro has outweighed the con.

Great review! I really wanted to like this book, as erotic science fiction sounded intriguing to me. But after reading the sample on Amazon, I was mostly feeling overwhelmed and very confused. I think this one might be too "sciencey" for me. So I decided to pass on reading it.

This Sci fi story sounds interesting. Imagine traveling back in time to save the future, what a wonderful combination. Thanks reviewer for your efforts in this review.

30th Century: Escape is a well written tale with the science firmly grounded in reality. Dr. Levin does a very good job with his freshmen debut in fiction. Though the book is tagged Science Fiction, it should also be tagged Romance/Adult cause of the sex scenarios. I do not recommend for children and teens.

Dr. Levin tried breaking the terms down to layman's understanding, but be ready to get lost in the plot...

Thirtyth Century: Escape, by Mark Kingston Levin.
The review, describes a totally futuristic humanity and Earth.
I believe that anyone who, loves syfi, would enjoy the story.
While, the review is interesting, and the sample is easy to follow, this type of story is not my first interest. As such, I will probably, not read this one.
Thank you,
Connie

If I had not read your review I would have found the steamy scenes an interesting surprise, not expecting that in a sci-fi novel. And since sci-fi is my favourite genre I am definitely going to read this. I think what you view as getting lost in the middle could be the author deciding to change the plot to make the end less predictable. I am more excited about this book now - great review!

Science Fiction/fantacy stories intrigues me and Escape is not an exception. I find it fascinating how the protagonist travels back in time to start a new life. I would love to explore the book and learn about other characters developed in the story line. Thank you for sharing the review.
