Serving Time (Timemakers Trilogy, #1)Serving Time by Nadine Ducca
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What I didn't like. Certain sections of this book were very high-strung. It was as if the characters were so emotionally caught up with themselves, they couldn't see anything else. What this means for the reader is that you get caught in a loop. You go round and round and round over a single issue when it could have easily been resolved with a single paragraph.

Did you find that the cover and title represented what the story was really about? It did. Most book club members felt that the focus of the story was Tristan and his brother. For me, the focus was Time. Hence, the title and cover are centred on this character. And note also the word "serving". Don't we all squeeze and pull our schedules, trying to serve time on a daily basis?

What did you think of the story structure? The story structure was effective for this book. It covers science fiction and fantasy from a different perspective and it was interesting to note that for a science fiction story, there was so much focus on emotions, feelings and sentimentality.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
