“This was a great intro and it leaves me only wanting more now!”

Since the end of the Rachel Morgan series, I’ve been itching to see what Ms. Harrison would write next. To say I was extremely intrigued about the Peri Reed Chronicles is an understatement. And now that I’ve gotten a small taste, I’m even more so!
SIDESWIPED is a small sampler of what’s to come in this series and it cements the fact that Ms. Harrison can make you get lost in the most complex worlds with ease. There is a movie that the name escapes me now revolving around a group of people who come bend time, move forward and backwards and even change the outcome of events. That is sort of what we get here.
There are Drafters who have the ability to draft through time, and Anchors who are the grounding force for them. Silas is an Anchor and has developed a new theory about the rules their world is living by. But proving it may be deadly. I was intrigued by Silas, even though I know he may not play a starring role in the upcoming series. And this is the introduction of our heroine, Peri, to this group. She’s definitely going to be intense even with her facade of devil-may-care attitude. She’s a Drafter, and seems a powerful one at that.
There’s quite a bit of action in this short story, and the world is explained quite well here. Without much info dump in what should be an enormous amount of rules and parameters we need to know to understand what’s going on. Proof again that Kim Harrison knows how to write the stories in her head. This was a great intro and it leaves me only wanting more now!
