Series: CHRONOS Origins #1
Published by 47North on April 1, 2020
Genres: Adult, Futuristic, Historical Fiction, Alternate History, Science Fiction, Time Travel
From the bestselling author of the Chronos series comes a page-turning novel of time travel, fast-paced action, and history-changing events.
When two time-traveling historians cross paths during one of the most tumultuous decades of the twentieth century, history goes helter-skelter. But which one broke the timeline?
In 2136 Madison Grace uncovers a key to the origins of CHRONOS, a time-travel agency with ties to her family’s mysterious past. Just as she is starting to jump through history, she returns to her timeline to find millions of lives erased—and only the people inside her house realize anything has changed.
In 2304 CHRONOS historian Tyson Reyes is assigned to observe the crucial events that played out in America’s civil rights movement. But a massive time shift occurs while he’s in 1965, and suddenly the history he sees isn’t the history he knows.
As Madi’s and Tyson’s journeys collide, they must prevent the past from being erased forever. But strange forces are at work. Are Madi and Tyson in control or merely pawns in someone else’s game?
A TL;DR OF MY REVIEW:
- AHHHHHH I LOVED IT!!! 💜💜💜
- YES you should definitely read The CHRONOS Files first!!! ⏳
- LOOK AT THE GIF I FOUND IT IS PERFECT!!! 💯
- HAVE YOU MET ME? Alternate History is my FAVORITE genre, of course I love it!!! 😍
HI LOOK I FOUND ANOTHER ALTERNATE HISTORY (although I guess this one is more of an alternate future…) BOOK AND I LOVE IT!!! Even though this book is not about Kate Pierce-Keller (the protagonist of The CHRONOS Files), we do get several updates on how she spent her life, and I enjoyed seeing that. This is a really interesting book because it takes place in both the future and the past, and gives us a closer look at what happened to characters from the original trilogy, both before and after the events of 2015. I would definitely recommend reading (or re-reading, as I did!) The CHRONOS Files before reading this book, because I think that without the refresher, it would have been very confusing. Basically, I love this book, and I hope that you do too!
Can I have the other two books like… right now please???
I… like this cover? It’s definitely my favorite of all the books she’s written, and it ties into the story well, but it just doesn’t… pop? to me?? But it does work well with the book and I do love the contrasting colors, so…

Alright, I’m really intrigued by the View Spoiler » stable alternate timeline « Hide Spoiler thing, but… I’m not quite sure how it makes sense with the canon that Walker has already established in The CHRONOS Files books. Is this what happened with View Spoiler » Other Kate? Or is it something different, because she had a key the whole time? « Hide Spoiler *shrug emoji* Hopefully we’ll get answers in the next book!
RYSA WALKER is the author of the bestselling CHRONOS Files series. Timebound, the first book in the series, was the Young Adult and Grand Prize winner in the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. The CHRONOS Files has sold nearly half a million copies since 2013 and has been translated into fourteen languages.
In addition to speculative fiction, she occasionally writes mysteries as C. Rysa Walker.
Rysa currently resides in North Carolina with her husband, two youngest sons, and a hyperactive golden retriever. When not working on the next installment in her CHRONOS Files universe, she watches shows where travelers boldly go to galaxies far away, or reads about magical creatures and superheroes from alternate timelines. She has neither the time nor the patience for reality TV.
If you see her on social media, please tell her to get back into the writing cave.
Are you as excited to read this book as I was? IT’S SERIOUSLY SO GOOD YOU GUYS!!! Let me know in the comments and have a splendiferous day!
