Future Threat (Future Shock #2) by Elizabeth Briggs












Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information--but not everyone made it back to the present alive.


Now Elena's dealing with her survivor's guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she's done with time travel and Aether Corporation.

But Aether's not done with her--or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether's latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort.


They arrive in a future that's amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation's reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.

But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost--or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything--including their relationship--to save their friends.





I think Future Threat is such a trip. There is so much going on that I am grateful that the author makes sure to rehash some previous events so that the new establishments of power, weapons and travel effects including the stages of character processing, where they stand how they feel and what they are going through that I almost needed a fresh mental 'download' on what took place the first time around in the first book.

Although I would like to mention that reading the first book isn't completely necessary due to the fact that Briggs did a fantastic job filling in readers I would highly recommend it simply because there is so much going on - on so many levels that I believe the readers need it.

I love the cast in the Future Shock series, they are bright, they're alive and its easy to place yourself in their shoes. Even though I don't really think it was meant to be I do think that this series so far is an emotional read for me.

There is a dash of romance but it doesn't take the whole of the story which is nice because it allows the reader to really focus on what's taking place on a plot level than the character level despite it being so vital to whats going on.

If you haven't read this series yet pick it up, you won't regret it.

Not Too Bad
More Than Comics - Elizabeth Briggs

Tara and Hector have known each other for years, collaborating on a comic book series, but they have never met in person. Now the time has come for them to meet in person at Comic-Con.

This book wasn’t bad. It was pretty smooth-flowing and kind of predictable. I liked Tara’s character, although Hector’s was kind of all over the place, where he woud act totally different from how he was thinking. This kind of got on my nerves.  Definitely more for people that like sweet contemporaries.

More Than Music - Elizabeth Briggs

They can't resist each other, but their secret romance might tear their band apart...

Classical musician Maddie Taylor secretly dreams of a louder life, but geeky girls like her don't get to be rock stars. That is, until tattooed singer Jared Cross catches her playing guitar and invites her to join his band on The Sound, a reality TV show competition.

Once on the show, Maddie discovers there's more to Jared than his flirty smile and bad boy reputation. With each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore, but when the show pressures them to stay single, they're forced to keep their relationship secret.

As the competition heats up, Jared will do whatever it takes for his band to win, and Maddie must decide if following her dream is worth losing her heart.

Future Shock
Future Shock - Elizabeth Briggs WOW! What a rollercoaster!
I was totally captivated by the awesome plot.
Somehow Briggs always get me all caught up in her books. She does things big and dramatic. Her books aren't slow subtle kind of stories- nope it's all or nothing: fast, dynamic and captivating. Future Shock is in many ways very different than her previous novels, yet it does have that element in common with them. They all are plot driven.

And when it comes to plots, Briggs just out did herself with this one. There are quite a few twists and turns, and two I didn't see coming. Well actually, I kinda expected something, anything- But I would have never guessed the particular event.
The entire book happens over a span of a week- but so much happened, never a dull moment. All the guessing kept me occupied, but so many things did unfold as well.
The most amazing thing however, I didn't only get to know the MCs during this adventure. They all had some pretty interesting character growth as well.

The entire book is written from Elena's POV. And to be frank I wasn't a huge fan of her in the beginning. I found her melodramatic, which is totally unfair, considering her situation. But she was just so poor me, everything is so unfair, yet also so agro. She kinda went on my nerves.
Then we get to meet her companions: Trent, Chris, Zoe and Adam.
Each of them bringing a different skill to their mission, or at least that's what we were told. It started off with rather typecast characters and as time goes one, we get to know them and they slowly slowly become this unique group of youngsters.
The most changes we get to see in Elena, some of her changes in fact were choices that effected the outcome of the story- which is beyond clever IMO. And at the end I realised I totally can identify with her, I care for her and I really like her. Pretty amazing considering that I thought she was totally annoying about 10% in.

I am still reeling from the book. I actually didn't really expect this. I don't exactly know what I expected, but not this. I think I kinda expected something more paranormal. I ain't complaining however. I like the idea of time-traveling stories, the question if we can change the future and the mystery of the storyline had me guessing right until the end.

Great concept and captivating plot make this an enjoyable read.
And now all I can do is wondering where Briggs will take the story next!
