Take a tour around the world of Jennifer Hero. Jennifer's about 40 years old, and is a captain of the SS (Secret Society). The SS's primary mission is to travel back in time and insert a virus into a group of people who will become known as "Syndos."

A team is prepped, and they travel to 27th century to insert this virus. What this team doesn't know is that Jennifer is emotionally compromised. After the death of her husband, she formulated the plot to abandon her team. After They arrive, Jennifer transfers leadership to Kylie Brown, her lover, and she betrays her team and goes to the year 2015.

While in the year 2015, she gets stranded on an island, where she does little more than survive, and gets rescued by a man named Marty Zitonick. He rescues her, and then they become lovers. After being rescued, Jennifer enrolls in the university of Hawaii to get her degree in marine science and math. While doing this, she starts dating Marty, but Marty has a past just as mysterious as Jennifer's, and soon they are adventuring, diving, getting stuck in caves while digging for ancient artifacts, and fishing with the lovable divers that accompany Marty.

This book was beautifully written, and obviously reviewed by a real professional, as I couldn't find any errors. This book won the IRWIN award for best science fiction book of 2017. Escape is a real page-turner, and you will definitely need to clear your schedules to make time for this masterpiece.

I would highly recommend this book to young adults who want to read something interesting, with caution. It definitely delves into sexual topics, and describes several scenes. So, if you are 15 or younger, this is probably going to be a book that you do not need to read.

While all of this attributes to the quality of the book, I personally had difficulty getting into the book at the beginning. You are thrown into the 30th century with no description of the environment. You are filled in later, so don't let this discourage you. Even with this slight detraction, the book 30th Century: Escape by Mark Kingston Levin, PhD, is truly a book worthy of a 4 out of 4 stars rating. Many congrats to Mark Kingston Levin PhD. This book is a work of art, and it truly was my pleasure to review it.
