It was a bit slow at first but picked up nicely in the second half I enjoy many time travel books and like to try to see if the author can keep it all straight This seemed to do just that This was a fun read with teen characters acting like spoiled brats that they likely would be if they were real I'm sure some of the characters that were introduced but left hanging such as nearly all from the beginning will return in subseuent books in this series I did feel like I was missing something however as the backstory was completely missing for the most part I had to stop and check to see if I was truly reading book one Perhaps that will come together eventually as well I liked how it was written as if the characters were speaking That always makes the reader feel as if they are part of the storyI think this series is likely written for either teens or young adults however I don't find it appropriate for teens Lots of drug use sex talk and foul language Yes I'm that kind of parent I actually care However I'm an adult and I enjoyed reading it I may even continue on with book 2

Y But what if there was a way to save her What if there was a way to send back a warning What if there was a way to undo it all The crash Us Falling in love All the way back to the beginning What if there was a machine. A Strange Machine starts off with the mysterious disappearance of Franklin Thomas who walks into the prototype Chronos uantum Computer and never comes out again Edgar Faye the head of the project closes down the jinxed project and donates the computer to his alma mater Lakeside Upper Cory Holland computer whizz spoiled rich brat and all round annoying jerk sounds rather like Tony Stark's playboy philanthropist billionaire then gets his hands on it after breaking into the school compound From there Dan Rix works his uantum physics and time travelling magic plunging Cory Noah and Iris into a crazy loop as they try to change the future in order to change the past Time travel paradox anyoneIt does Rix credit that his characterisation of Cory Holland is good enough that I really wanted to slap this idiotic teenager several times over Cory was a very well rounded character cocky and egoistical sometimes even brash and yet still vulnerable in areas of his life His two side kicks Noah Wright and Iris Strasser somewhat reluctantly also manage to live in your imagination as they struggle through the pains of high school Advanced Physics and the way Cory bullies them both I'm suspecting two possible romances to emerge in the next book from the way it's being set up HahOn the other hand Cory's crush Samantha Silvers felt a little like a throwaway character as if she's just there to be his distraction in the book Part of the reason could be her strange behaviour towards Cory's nemesis Dante Laurenti mmm delicious Her vacillation between the two would have been a perfectly normal confused reaction of a hormone driven girl with two simultaneous crushes which can happen except for the drugs and her parents' awkward lack of protectiveness and absence despite knowing that she has a problem And that brings up a YA trope Dan Rix has allowed into his book absentee parents I didn't uite notice this as strongly in his other books In bookTriton|20823076 everyone except the four teens had disappeared though there was a hint of family dysfunction; In God's Loophole and Eternity’s End the Rockwell's parents had died there were an uncle and an aunt whilst Raedyn was a runaway however there was the professor who was in a way kind of a stand in parentmentor In A Strange Machine however it feels as if the story is littered with absenteedistant parents Cory's father is too busy with work to pay attention to him Noah's mother appears to be addicted to the lottery Samantha's parents conveniently disappear on an anniversary trip just when her ex boyfriend comes back from juvie and Edgar Faye seems to be drifting too much in and out of reality to be much of a father to Anneliese Iris' parents weren't mentioned much at all I guess it's not ALL bad certain lack of parental knowledge has to take place in order for the teens to get themselves into trouble right but maybe having so many at once felt a little like overkillAt any rate Rix has a good thing going In most of his books it's really the way he gets you to identify with his characters and the struggles they go through that makes the story comes to life That really is his strength and he manages to continue to harness it even while improving on his overall writing chops I received a pre release copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

About TimeI received this book for free and have read many time machine tales in the past but this is the first time in years I have enjoyed a book so much I had to write a review Absolutely first class tale without all the 'glitches' often associated with free books I take my hat off to Dan Rix for a tale well told
