Kicking off a riveting sci-fi trilogy, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman plunges us into a world where time is a tool — and the question is, who will control it?The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished — only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear. Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing — one right on top of the roof — hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he’s launched on a time-twisting journey— from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker’s actions alter the past and future, changing his world forever.

What a piece of....This "Time Travel" book really fooled me. It's a collection of bizarre and confusing scenarios put together human centipede style. I really wasted my time reading this one. The only thing I got from it was a splitting headache. This was recommended to me when I was in the mood for...
The Obsidian Blade could be a little confusing at times, but it was a very interesting story. I liked the idea of the diskos and being transported throughout places in the past and future. I wish the book wouldn't have ended when it did, but I look forward to reading book 2 when it's released this s...
I thought this might be interesting given the science fiction, time travel aspects, but it was just weird and unfulfilling. Tucker’s dad, a preacher, goes up on the roof and mysteriously disappears only to re-appear with a young girl named Lahlia and have lost his faith in God. The book starts off i...
