Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.

Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.

Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…

Sideswiped is a prequel Novella for Kim Harrison’s new series The Peri Reed Chronicles. This is a good introduction for this science fiction series.

In Sideswiped we meet Silas and Peri. Releasing a prequel novella as the first book for a series can be tricky as I found it difficult to understand what was going on. The first scene is of Silas in a classroom so I was missing the when, where, why and how of the story. But as I read more it finally became clear that these were all students of time traveling. Silas and Peri have a bright future ahead of them – Peri was the youngest time traveler to be discovered and Silas’ research is on the brink of changing all the theories of time travel. A series of events brings them together and it is clear that fans will be taken on a suspenseful and action pact ride in this series.

I wished there was more details revealed about this world so I hope the first book, The Drafter, answers all my questions. Despite the slow start I am intrigued with this series and can’t wait to read more.

I received this book as a member of the XOXperts, XOXO After Dark’s official street team, in exchange for an honest review. Visit for the best in romance, urban fantasy and women’s fiction.
