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… 

Silas’s size has kept him from being an agent instead stuck in the background knowing that one day his girlfriend will leave him. Drafting is where the agent replays time changing something that happened previously to create a new outcome. Silas doesn’t believe that’s how it really works he has this idea that there are alternate realities and they are sliding laterality into one and changing it before sliding back. Silas has always been extremely intelligent even smarter than some of the professors which has rubbed one the wrong way. While on a routine exam things go horribly wrong, changing the path of his life forever.

I like Silas he’s against the odds but he’s determined not to give up on what he thinks is really going on when someone drafts. He’s not your typical heartthrob but I like it makes him a unique and refreshing male main character and I’m curious see more of him in the full novel. We also had a little glimpse at Peri she’s kind of awesome in an I go my own way path. I’m looking forward to getting to know more of her.

I’ve read most of Kim Harrison’s book so of course with the anticipation of the new one I had to read Sideswiped. We are given a short fast paced action packed tease into the world of the drafters, and our main characters first interactions. I like the concept idea it’s interesting with the idea of being able to change the past by just shifting into another alternate reality is really unique.  I also like the character we aren’t only give a little bit but what I’ve read has me hook and I can’t wait to get my hands on the first book to see how the story will play out. I love Kim Harrison’s writing style it’s one of my favorites and I’m excited for the new series. Sideswiped it a perfect tease it has me now impatiently waiting for the moment the delivery shows up with my book.
