30th Century: Escape
Mark Kingston Levin, PhD
Mistakes: Main character, Ms. Jennifer Hero, has been addressed by Ms. Kyle Brown as “Sir”! There are some more grammatical mistakes, as well, though minor.
The book is based on a strong story line: Captain Jennifer Hero dispatching her teams of “Naturals” back in time, from the 30th Century to the 27th Century, to plan destroying “Syndos” (genetically modified groups without morals). Jennifer herself moves to 21st Century, due to some complex reasoning process, and meets many groups of people: Prof. Marty Zitonic and his research team and many others.
Jennifer has exceptionally strong health; her only problem is that she misses her original team, herself having moved to 21st Century. This mental issue keeps Jennifer bogged down throughout, though she achieves a lot, including a PhD in Cosmology. Here, Mark Kingston goes into deep explanation of her thesis which deals with space, time, cosmology, universe expansion, black hole, dark energy etc. This is an area which is fine as a basis for a serious science fiction, but many readers may find these heavy, at times. I enjoyed the book and the story line and its logical conclusion.
We find twin sister of Jennifer, Jenny (she was unknown to Jennifer in the beginning) who visits her to the 21st Century from the 30th Century. Both sisters join hands and they do time travel to the 30th century and it is found that a truce has been found between the Naturals (Jennifer and likes) and the Syndos. Jennifer had got married to Marty and preferred to come back to 21st Century. Sexual component and graphic descriptions are very vivid. Though I would recommend this book for those who like Sci-Fi Genres, it should be given only to matured younger readers.
I will rate this book with a 3 out of 4.
