detached tour banner 

Detached  What you do tomorrow, you'll pay for today. Life was easier in the cage, now Lara Crane’s life is under a microscope. She thought she was out, ready for a normal life, but with the Feds endless questions and tests, Lara realizes she might never be free. Things would be worse if not for Donovan. They promise to ride it out together as Lara is fitted with a time travel restraint, designed to not only stop her, but to save her life as her mind spirals out of control. No more second chances. No more time travel to revert everything back the way it was once before. As the danger increases, so does Lara’s headaches and nightmares. Her brain is desperate to be free, loose, and as the future begins to flash all around her, Lara is terrified the end might be near. And maybe she doesn’t have a future at all.

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have absolutely loved this series and I am upset it is over, but it had to end some time didn't it? It's a different take on the idea of a time traveler, which really helped to spark my attention. From the very first book, Lara has been a character I have been able to be empathetic towards, and understand where her motives are. As a mom, I found myself cringing that any 17 year old would have to bear so much responsibility on her shoulders. One of the good things, is the author happened to mention that in the book a few times, so it wasn't completely ignored. Donovan hasn't really changed much, though with his privileged status crumbling in front of him, he really dug deep and realized that his money and status don't mean much without love. The new character Cassidy was a good twist and we were able to experience the future society through her eyes.
From the beginning of the book, the author kept the reader engaged through enough action to pull the story line along, and enough description that a future society won't confuse us too much. It was easy to understand the characters motives. The story line wasn't so tangled that it was a hopeless mess to understand, which can happen in time travel stories, but neither was it so transparent that you could guess what the next plot twist would be.
If you're looking for a time travel series that sin't completely like every other time travel series, then you need to try this one out for size!
