Another Great Book from 2013: Extracted, by Sherry Ficklin and Tyler Jolley

Last month, I gave my top recommendations for books I read in 2013.  Well, I need to add another.  I finished Extracted before the end of the year, so it counts.

Extracted, Steampunk Time Travel Young Adult Adventure

Extracted, by Sherry Ficklin and Tyler Jolley

Written by Sherry D. Ficklin and Tyler H. Jolley, Extracted is a young adult (YA) time travel steampunk adventure. I don’t read much YA, but I’ve read a few of Sherry’s and always enjoy her stories. They’re not too teen angsty, and they’re packed with adventure. Extracted is no exception.

Extracted is the story of Ember and Lex, sibling time travelers (called Rifters) on opposite sides of a war they don’t fully understand. Without the memories of their lives before becoming Rifters, they have no idea of each other’s existence. As the war escalates and friends die, the siblings come face to face and the memories suddenly come flooding back. When the time stream begins to collapse, the siblings must choose sides and find a way to save each other, and the world.

The beginning was a little slow to get started, but within a few chapters I was hooked. It was a unique and riveting adventure that had me sneaking back to the couch for ‘just one more chapter’. Definitely recommended.
