    After finishing this novel, I can positively say that I have been left speechless and disoriented Brett has done an amazing job of exploring the concept of time travel and parallel universes This novel is FULL of action and suspense and twists While I am not wholly convinced on the relationship between Shaun and Cassie at the present moment, I can already feel that things are going to be double the EVERYTHING GOOD in the sequel Therefore, I pronounce The Bureau of Time a fantastic first book After finishing this novel, I can positively say that I have been left speechless and disoriented Brett has done an amazing job of exploring the concept of time travel and parallel universes This novel is FULL of action and suspense and twists While I am not wholly convinced on the relationship between Shaun and Cassie at the present moment, I can already feel that things are going to be double the EVERYTHING GOOD in the sequel Therefore, I pronounce The Bureau of Time a fantastic first book to a crazy intense series

    This is how you can tell a young male millennial YA writer a la Taran Matharu he s got a story jam packed with elements borrowed from just about every other story you can think of, but thrown together in a way that still feels fresh and hyper awesome.Brett Michael Orr and his Bureau of Time are no exception.First and foremost on my list of Hey, This Sounds Like X comparison titles, Bureau of Time edition Fringe.

This book exists in a world of weird science words suspended in colorful gel screens, all set to the tune of an ominous piano driven JJ Abrams theme song.And, of course, there sthan one of everything in this book too.Then we get a little bit of Divergent in our heroes Here we have a girl who starts out going into a paramilitary environmentthan a bit over her head, and is forced to toughen up extra fast We also have a guy who s already quite capable of kicking major ass, and with all his scars, he looks every bit as dangerous as he is.And let s not forget today s biggest fictional defier of the space time continuum the Flash. Especially with the creepy ass villain, Zero, who feels so much like Zoom by way of Ultron Not only that, but this book very easily compares to The Flash s famous fifteenth episode in terms of ultra high Holy Shit Quotient.No, seriously The way that last scene of Out of Time had me screaming at the screen was the way I reacted to the final two or three chapters of this book And not just because a lot of the climax was set in San Francisco, but also because of the way my ship was being shelled with extreme prejudice I love these poor characters so much, and Brett Michael Orr is not only subjecting them to a Matharu level cliffhanger, but also to Riordan level This guy is not to be trusted with the lives his super cool characters It s a shame there s no physical copy of this book yet It deserves to share bookstore shelf space with the best of them Seriously I really hope that changes by the time Book 2 comes out

    This is pretty standard scifi, structurally sound but I had issues A lot of small but significant issues, and most of them were in the first few chapters so I almost quit it straight away So Cassie is emotionally inconstant Yeah she s a teenage girl but even teenage girls can prioritise extreme emotional response that is relevant to their situation and not their loosely constructed romances She s passive, does absolutely nothing to contribute to the story, she just exists in it, and This is pretty standard scifi, structurally sound but I had issues A lot of small but significant issues, and most of them were in the first few chapters so I almost quit it straight away So Cassie is emotionally inconstant Yeah she s a teenage girl but even teenage girls can prioritise extreme emotional response that is relevant to their situation and not their loosely constructed romances She s passive, does absolutely nothing to contribute to the story, she just exists in it, and is told that she s rare and special and powerful There s also a scene right in chapter one where the reader learns that the adults in her life think that she s hallucinating from stress and the word schizophrenia is used suddenly that is not how schizophrenia works The only other women in the story are bit characters or caricature Bond villain sidekicks Marissa could have been SO INTERESTING but I felt like the author didn t even try there , and the POC are also bit characters with either stereotypical or potentially racist identifiers the first person of colour is described as a Hispanic man with greasy black hair and a hooked nose , his words rolling with a Latino twist , then he hardly appears in the book Cassie has never communicated with the things that chase her or seen them do anything to prove this she just has a gut feeling that they are assassins I ve read the whole book and I still don t know what they are that is never really explained Or maybe I just missed it But it s important to note that this is not how girls work, speaking of through the fear in her electric blue eyes, he could see her determination to live burning brightly that s not how eyes work, or girls I m reminded of that scene from Brooklyn Nine Nine have you even met a human woman don t call your monsters faceless and then mention their faces in the same sentence the descriptions were all over the place in this sense, and that did not stop being frustrating throughout the book The only things I m sure about are that Shaun should be bald at age 30 because he continually bleached his hair and Cassie s hair is red it was mentioned eighteen times, I counted This was so much longer than I intended whoops

    The Bureau of Time is exciting, fresh, and habit forming from the very start and, for a novel about time travel to put it simply I found it incredibly clear With things like time travel, stories can get muddy, and I m happy to say that was not the case here.The enemy, the adjusters, are super creepy and evil, but as the story progresses they become almost humanized, most of them at least Even though they were unsettling in description and their actions, I still wanted to learn about them a The Bureau of Time is exciting, fresh, and habit forming from the very start and, for a novel about time travel to put it simply I found it incredibly clear With things like time travel, stories can get muddy, and I m happy to say that was not the case here.The enemy, the adjusters, are super creepy and evil, but as the story progresses they become almost humanized, most of them at least Even though they were unsettling in description and their actions, I still wanted to learn about them and where they came from.The characters are the kind I can root for, and their special abilities are awesome I loved the caveat with Shaun s ability, because it took a very convenient situation and added something extra, and imperfection and it somehow made itbelievable Cassie s ability had one too, though I don t know if it will stay that way for long as the series progresses Cassie has a loyalty to her family mixed with an almost innocence at the start of the novel, while Shaun feels responsible for the deaths of others like him Watching them fight the same battle for different reasons adds a nice tension to the mix, and I flew through the last half of the book I can t wait to find out what happens next in this series That endingoh man

    I was so impressed by this book I ve read plenty of YA fiction in my life, but this one blew almost all of them out of the water The characters were well developed, complex, and highly likable The story world was so unique and engrossing, anything but the cliche secret gov organizations and distant dystopian worlds you see in many popular books and movies And the plot I was on the edge of my seat the entire read I tore through this book in two sittings, and my only regret is that I didn t I was so impressed by this book I ve read plenty of YA fiction in my life, but this one blew almost all of them out of the water The characters were well developed, complex, and highly likable The story world was so unique and engrossing, anything but the cliche secret gov organizations and distant dystopian worlds you see in many popular books and movies And the plot I was on the edge of my seat the entire read I tore through this book in two sittings, and my only regret is that I didn t do it in one From my own perspective as a writer, I have so much respect for the work Orr has done with both the storytelling and the prose Both were tight, captivating, and highly impressive for a debut author I definitely recommend checking out this series ASAP

    Wow, I really, really enjoyed this Classic sci fiction with a simple but compelling story A great debut that features time travel, alternate universes, and war The plot develops wonderfully with characters falling into opposite sides of the war and questioning who they are and can become And dammit Brett, TO BE CONTINUED You are so cruel.

    In case you are unsure about what The Bureau of Time is about, let me sum it up for you quickly It s about this teenage girl, Cassandra, who finds out she is a Timewalker, able to manipulate time She is then thrust into a program to help her become stronger to fight of the Adjusters, monsters that are out to kill Timewalkers But there isto the story then just that Two worlds on on the verge of war, which will leave one world left standing Which one will it be Intriguing, right I m a In case you are unsure about what The Bureau of Time is about, let me sum it up for you quickly It s about this teenage girl, Cassandra, who finds out she is a Timewalker, able to manipulate time She is then thrust into a program to help her become stronger to fight of the Adjusters, monsters that are out to kill Timewalkers But there isto the story then just that Two worlds on on the verge of war, which will leave one world left standing Which one will it be Intriguing, right I m a big sucker for parallel universes They are my favorite Unfortunately, there s not a lot of those books out there So when I won a copy of The Bureau of Time, I could not wait to read it And much to my excitement, I found myself unable to put it down after reading the first chapter I was gripped from the beginning, and tore through the rest of the book I would have finished it sooner if I didn t have to work Each chapter left me wanting to knowabout the world Where it was going, how it was going to end It was amazing.I also liked the romance in this book It wasn t heavy There was no teenage angst between the two lovers Their main concern wasn t about each other, but rather on the world that was on the threat of extinction Of course at times their thoughts were wonder to each other, but it was within reason I won t say, as it interferes with some big plot points towards the end, and I don t give away spoilers on purpose This book had just enough action to satisfy me in every way I love a good fight scene or ten Each scene was well written and easy to follow It felt like I was watching it live through my own eyes.The characters are also real They are teenagers, so of course they are going to be naive about things and quick to judge Most people hate these kinds of thing about characters, and tend to find them annoying, but hello That s how teenagers are today, considering I am one and know how I am But you need realism to set the scene To make it as realistic as possible But I have no doubt that in the next book, our main characters will learn and grow from their experience and decisions they made in the past, and becomemature in the process.I can t wait for the sequel, The Fate of Us Speaking of which, this book ends with a GINORMOUS cliffhanger, so if you hate those, wellsucks When I read it, I screeched lowly and said to myself, Did he really just WHY WHY WOULD HE DO THAT TO ME cries until the sequel comes out I recommend this book for those looking for action, small romance, slight mysteries, and plot twists

    Brett Michael Orr delivers time traveling teens battling corporeal Death Eaters across two dimensions in this, the 1st of the Timewalker Trilogy I have not enjoyed time travel as a major plot since Back To The Future but having the power originate in the genetically modified minds of teens rather than the engine of a Delorean took a little for my 80 s brain to accept.As most who know me can attest, I am not a fan of shared POV novels, but it is essential in Orr s novel as the main characters Sh Brett Michael Orr delivers time traveling teens battling corporeal Death Eaters across two dimensions in this, the 1st of the Timewalker Trilogy I have not enjoyed time travel as a major plot since Back To The Future but having the power originate in the genetically modified minds of teens rather than the engine of a Delorean took a little for my 80 s brain to accept.As most who know me can attest, I am not a fan of shared POV novels, but it is essential in Orr s novel as the main characters Shaun and Cassie are led down separate paths towards the seemingly shared future Orr does not overlap the stories which saves the reader from reliving every event again but through the others POV, this is what makes it work so well.I was often reminded of Buffy during Cassie s chapters and wonder if the popular TV series was an influence when creating this strong, yet sometimes fragile character Or, perhaps my Buffy Love simply clouded my view of the female lead, Cassie does have red hair after all.I found a few errors that should have been picked up before going to print, but what book now days doesn t have one or two.TO BE CONTINUED The most hated words you can ever read at the end of a book I enjoyed as much as this If I had not been reading on my kindle I may have thrown it at the wall I knew this was a trilogy, but expected an end, not to be left with so many questions.Ultimately The Bureau of Tome is a well crafted novel that will easily please The characters are likable and the world Orr has created or rather two worlds, will have you on the edge of your seat till the very end But be warned Book two is not out for a while and you may find yourself wishing you too could manipulate the fabric of time to bring it s release date to yesterday
