special place in my heart for time travel and I love reading about future tech It s the reason I love Black Mirror so much seeing possibilities.I don t read nearly enough speculative fiction and Here and Now and Then has given me the nudge I needed.One of the things that made this book so enjoyable for me is that there is plenty of technology involved, but we don t get bogged down in specs and the

for me is that there is plenty of technology involved, but we don t get bogged down in specs and the kind of extraneous detail that sometimes makes my eyes glaze over.I think it works so well because although time travel is the glue that holds the story together, I would consider it the B plot The A plot isabout family and relationships, love and sacrifice, and all the joy and pain that comes with it.The cast of characters are strong enough that I really cared about all of them The empathy I felt made Kin s mission feel as important to me as it was to him, and that is a rare treat.This is a fast paced, fun read, but it s also touching and evocative.Here and Then and Now is another debut novel that is just superb The writing is on point and the dialogue is seamless, and despite it s future past setting, it s quite believable.5 5 stars Expected date of publication is January 29th, 2019.I received an ARC from MIRA Books, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review The opinions expressed are mine I enjoy time travel stories every once in a while and I just accept the moving from one time to another, paying little attention to the details of what gets the character there and back and sometimes back again The important things for me are the characters and their relationships and how they manage in the different years So I tried to ignore the technical details put forth here, although some of it, of course was important to how the story plays out The technical details in the story didn I enjoy time travel stories every once in a while and I just accept the moving

relationships and how they manage in the different years So I tried to ignore the technical details put forth here, although some of it, of course was important to how the story plays out The technical details in the story didn t grab me I prefer a simpler way of moving from time to time without a lot of explanation For some reason, I can beaccepting of it that way Having said that, I was taken with the core theme, a father s love for his daughter and the lengths he would go to save her.A time travel mission for The Temporal Corruption Bureau goes wrong when Kin travels from 2142 to 1996, to catch a rogue agent who is attempting what is taboo in time travel, trying to change history When he gets stranded in the past, not remembering his present future life, he marries and has a 14 year old daughter Things become complicated when he is rescued against his will and he has to leave his wife and daughter behind Things are complicated further by the fact that he has someone in his life in this time as well With the ability to search websites of the past, Kin is able to find out the fate of his wife and daughter and is determined to make things right for his daughter Miranda and insure that she has a good life He begins to communicate with her by e mail and is caught by his employer and his mission is now to save his daughter This is fast paced, quick to read if you gloss over the technical details like I did Time travel stories can be far fetched, and some of what happens here, especially near the end felt a bit too much for me But it s a touching story and overall I enjoyed it I would definitely recommend this to time travel aficionados.I received an advanced copy of this book from HARLEQUIN MIRA through NetGalley Here and Now and Then is a superbly plotted technological twister about a husband and father forced into an impossible choice The science is precise and clever, and Chen deftly serves up each unexpected turn, in the process constructing his own impossible two poignant and disparate lives simultaneously experienced by one person As a writer I read with admiration, and as a mother I sometimes needed a handkerchief. Here and Now and Then was a perfect mix of family drama and sci fi adventure Kin and his predicament caught my interest from the first chapter and held it throughout The time travel elements were well thought out and blended seamlessly into the tale I was never left questioning the viability of anything that took place Kin was an engaging character as a reader, I desperately wanted him to succeed

fantasy novel This particular time travel adventure takes a look at what happens if things in the past are changed by the time travelers.Kin is from the year 2142 when time travel becomes common and is an agent for the Temporal Correction Bureau TCB The agents of the TCB are tasked with going back and protecting the past from corruption as any little change can change their future that is yet to

the damage someone will come for him in two days when scheduled but instead finds himself trapped for the next eighteen years where he slowly loses the memories of his true time.Although the idea behind Here and Now and Then is not a new one in the fact that change in the past can change the future I still enjoyed this author s take on it This is one that most of the plot is pretty much given away in the blurb so if you didn t read that yet you may not want to if it sounds like a good one.For me while I enjoyed the ideas on time travel and the story I did think this one read a little on the dry side and I just didn t feel it oozing with the emotion it should have which is what led to my rating 3.5 stars Maybe I was focusing a bit too much on the tech side or perhaps it was the male POV or writer that was a bit off to me but regardless it was still a solid and entertaining story.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.Forreviews please visit This is a

daughter s life turned out, and the actions he takes when he finds out puts both their lives and the world as he knows it at grave risk.Here and Now and Then succeeds at all the fundamentals strong premise, likeable characters, focused plotting, steady pacing The novel takes few risks though It ignores intriguing dramatic possibilities in favor of the standard action movie scenario of a father trying to rescue his daughter from certain peril, and there is minimal pulse raising in terms of suspense and upping the stakes It s a pleasant and emotionally satisfying time passer, if not very

to settle back in, but when the daughter he had in the past is threatened, well, he s not about to let that slide.It s a poignant story written with a deft hand There s a heckuva lot to unpack emotionally when you re dealing with two lives and two families, and a heckuva lot of ways to go wrong, but Chen lands each emotional beat with not only style, but a punch to the gut I m not usually one to cry while reading A Fault In Our Stars was the last one to get me, so it s been years , but I went through half a box of tissues in those last few chapters.Moreover, the women are all fully formed, fully realized characters, with just as much depth as the men, and there s no Big Bad Wolf, just people being people It s morally gray in the best way and the technobabble is just enough to be
