I'm back with a book review for you. Technically this is a short story or novella, but it's still a book! A co-worker that also loves to read has been recommending Kim Harrison to me for what feels like several years. Since Harrison has a new series that's just started, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to check out her writing. Read on to find out what I thought of my first look into The Peri Reed Chronicles.

Synopsis: 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…
While this is The Peri Reed Chronicles, the story is told from the POV of Dr. Silas Denier, Peri Reed does indeed make an appearance. I already have an idea what type of character she is, as well as a good grip on Silas's character. I suspect there may be some sort of relationship in the future between Silas and Peri, but we'll see.
This was my first time reading anything by Harrison and I liked it. I want to read more so I plan on continuing on with this series with book one, The Drafter. Her writing style has that witty edge that I like and appreciate. All things considered, this series seems right up my alley.
If you like science fiction, futuristic, or time travel-ish books, then you'll want to check this out. What's even better is that it's a short novella, so if you're new to Kim Harrison like myself, you can give her a test run before committing to an entire novel. Bottom line, I recommend Sideswiped.
