I hope you check out some of the other stops on this tour with excerpts of the book. It's really a can't miss for Time Travel lovers!


Induction Day

Induction Day (Butterman {Time} Travel, Inc #2) 
Ages: 16+
Pages: 247
The year 2069 is coming to a close, and eighteen-year-old Bianca Butterman's time-craft license is finally official. She's ready for the Induction Day she’s waited for since she was a kid—the one that will secure her name on the Butterman family tree of time travelers. But ever since the media discovered Bianca is pop superstar Tristan Helms’ latest new honey, everything Bianca does or says becomes a target of criticism. Having her professional credibility topping the gossip sites across social media is an open invitation for the government to step in and regulate Bianca’s Induction. Now she will have to ask herself if saving 1500 people from drowning is worth losing everything she’s ever worked for, including the Butterman family biz.

 Review

This novel starts out just a few weeks after the last novel ended. It took me just a little bit of time to remember what had happened at the end of the last book and to get me going in this book. I couldn't remember if there had been a cliffhanger or what. But apparently not as there is no big save in the beginning. A sweet romance is brewing between Tristan and Brianna, continued from the last novel but it has it troubles. And it is NOT a love triangle.

Butterman Travel, in fact all time travel agencies, are being hounded by D
OT. They pay enormous amounts of taxes and other fees that make time travel accessible only to the very rich. Butterman Travel wants all the people to have access to time travel but can't seem to get out from under the DOT's thumb. Particularly a woman named Graves who pretends, in this novel, to only want what's best for Butterman. So when some bad publicity hits Butterman Travel due to Bianca and Tristan's relationship and certain allusions to some past infractions that may or may not have happened in Bianca's and Tristan's last time trip (Butterman (Time) Travel Inc. Book 1, DOT, via Graves, believes that Bianca's Induction Day should be broadcast for the world to see.

I have to say that Bianca, who has been in the business, learning it since the age of ten is a lot more comfortable with that idea than I would be. I don't want anyone watching me even make a post, but driving what sounds like a miniature space shuttle into a time chute with precision and accuracy onto the Titanic just hours before it sinks sounds like a great way to die. Or a horrific way to die. I know a lot of people are Titanic fans, wanting to know more and more about it, but I tend the other way. I know what happens and I don't want to read about it. I'll let you find out if you get to experience anything from the Titanic.

The best thing about Bianca's Induction Day was going to be that she saved the Titanic. She was going to create a parallel universe so that all of the people survived and she would erase her trail so the DOT would never know. But with the whole world watching and DOT scrutinizing her every move, she can't do it. So all her years of planning and scientific equations and memorizing dates and times, it's all for nothing. Or at least that's what she believes as she starts out on her Induction Day journey. Oh, and one more little monkey wrench, the DOT thinks it would be a good idea if Tristan went with Bianca. Just to show how safe of a pilot Bianca is at 18.

The ending is frustrating, not as in cliffie or anything like that, but you feel the characters' feeling of damned if you do and damned if you don't. Their hands were tied at the outset of Bianca's Induction Day, she couldn't refuse them and what DOT does at the end is so unfair, yet not unexpected. But the revelations that come from Ms. Graves, those shake the foundations of Butterman Travel and I have to wonder if and what will happen to Butterman travel now.

This is an incredibly fast book to read. But this is the second book in the series, so do make sure to read the first book in the series. These need to be read in order. The time travel will not have you confused as an actual time travel vehicle is used to travel through time and space. It's an easy concept to grasp. There is a little bit of sex in it but it's almost off the page. There is also talk of drug use and a little bit of swearing. I believe 13-14 and up should be able to handle it.

Thanks to the author for a review copy of this novel for the purposes of the tour. I was in no way influenced in my review.

    1. No, the ending wasn't frustrating for the reader. It was frustrating for the characters. I was okay with the ending. It sets the next book up nicely, lots of conflict to figure out.

  3. Oh this sounds interesting. Time travel can be tricksy in books but I'm glad it seems to work here. I do think I may wait for the 3rd book because of that ending. :)
