“Witness protection has a protocol for every imaginable situation—the unimaginable has happened.”
Fifteen-year-old Cate’s life has been monitored since her new identity was created five years ago. She’s spent countless hours learning how to deal with potential threats and dangerous situations. None of which is any use when everyone around her is suddenly frozen like statues one afternoon.
As she attempts to make sense of the frightening scene, a mysterious group of teenagers appears out of thin air. They are intrigued she’s not affected, but focus on completing their mission, using baffling powers before they vanish again.
Terrified, but desperate not to be relocated again Cate tells no one and sets a catastrophic chain of events in motion. When the group seeks her out the next day, she discovers a brutal realm filled with wizards, zombies and the occasional shapeshifter who travel through time manipulating history. A centuries-old battle between two mortal enemies in this clandestine world puts Cate’s loved ones in danger.
When her brother disappears, a panicked Cate is forced into the dangerous realm where she must risk her life to search for him. There she is faced with an unimaginable decision. Will she risk destroying innocent lives and the world as she knows it to save the ones she loves?

She dragged her hands down her face. Reluctantly, she admitted it was impossible to ignore all the weird things that had happened since Sunday at the bus stop. The damage was done. Her world had changed. What if she was going to make terrible decisions or become a horrible person? This was her chance to find out and maybe change that if she wanted to. “So Timesurfers control history?”
“We don’t control history, we protect it,” Naitanui said.
“Isn’t that the same?” Cate asked.
A sad smile spread across Naitanui’s face. “The two could not be more different. To protect requires difficult decisions. Ours is a world of black and white.”
Cate rubbed her eyes with the back of her hand. “What does that mean in plain English?”
“The world wars, bubonic plague, the sinking of the Titanic—are all disasters that could be avoided in an alternate history. If Mortez seeks to remedy these types of events, our job is to ensure history runs its course as intended. We do what it takes to ensure these tragedies unfold.”
“You stand by and let people die?” A sprinkling of doubt floated through Cate’s head. How could letting people die be acceptable for any reason?
