Welcome to the TIME WAR

STEIN has been with the Hollows for as long as she can remember. Taken as a child, she has no memories of her past-and that's always been fine by her. Until the day she stumbles across a hidden journal containing the devastating truth about her paternity. Now everything she thought she knew-and everyone she thought she could trust-has changed. The truth about who she is and where she came from is a secret so deep, it will rock the Hollows and the Tesla Institute alike.

ETHAN is left with a serious problem after what should have been a routine mission. He's fractured-a break between mind and body that leaves him at the mercy of his Rifter abilities, which are quickly tearing him apart. He will have to trust the only person who might know how to fix him, a mysterious Rifter named Stewart Stills, who seems to have a special connection with the time stream.

In a battle for control of the time stream, the past and the future will collide, either saving mankind-or destroying it.

The Tesla Institute stands on one side of the battle. Controlled by the mind of one of the greatest inventors in history, the Institute recruits gifted, young time travelers called Rifters. Those who survive his training are sent into history with the mission to preserve the time stream, recruit more of their kind, and better humanity through subtle, controlled event manipulation.

Standing in the way are the Hollows, a rogue group of Rifters who have vowed to put an end to the Tesla Institute-at all costs. They steal, cheat, and bend history to their own ends. Using children stolen from time as their personal armies, they fight not only for control of time itself, but also for self-preservation.

Sherry is a full time writer from Colorado where she lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and house guests. A former military brat, she loves to travel, eat exotic food, and meet new people. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and ...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly03/02/2015In a complex future world where two groups of time travelers-the Tesla Institute and the rebellious Hollows-battle to rewrite history, time traveler Stein learns she's dying, and her friends make a desperate gamble to find a cure. Despite their best efforts, soon it becomes clear that only her worst enemy, death-defying genius Nicola Tesla, can save her. The refreshing second Lost Imperials novel (after Extracted) daringly makes steampunk fan favorite Tesla not just a villain, but a horrible monster of a man. There are a few hints that he could be sympathetic, but the powerful and surprising ending shows just how far Tesla is willing to go for control of the time stream. Stein's personal connection to Tesla, tipped early, builds into a complex series of revelations that could change the balance of power between the Hollows and the Institute, hooking readers with a brisk pace and novel reinterpretations of familiar steampunk story elements.
