Doing something a little different today and posting a review! Usually I keep my thoughts on other people’s books to my Book Chats, but this is a special occasion.
I recently read INDUCTION DAY by PK Hrezo, and I loved it. (Disclaimer: PK is a good friend of mine). If you haven’t read BUTTERMAN (TIME) TRAVEL, INC. you definitely should because the second book, INDUCTION DAY, takes off at lightning pace! I loved learning more about Bianca’s family’s time travel business and her parents. This is one area of Young Adult and New Adult books that largely goes ignored, the family. Seeing how respectful Bianca was to her family and how they positively influenced her and guided her really brought another dimension to the story.
Tristan, Bianca’s sexy boyfriend, goes through his own trials in this book too, which PK Hrezo handled with care and a good dose of reality. Basically, addiction is a real and powerful force in one’s life, and it is not something that’s easily ignored.
But possibly the best thing about this book was Bianca’s time travel journey to the Titanic. PK Hrezo did an amazing job of describing the Titanic, what people were wearing, and what Bianca was experiencing, I felt like I was RIGHT THERE. Bianca has such a straight moral compass, it’s really difficult for her to lie or pretend like there’s nothing wrong. This gets her into some trouble, and I won’t spoil the outcome! That would be mean.
This was such a fantastic follow-up to BUTTERMAN, so if you loved that and want to continue on with the series, definitely pick up INDUCTION DAY. I’m sure you’ll love it.
INDUCTION DAY by PK Hrezo
Category/Genre: New Adult Science Fiction
Publishing Date: August 31, 2014
The year 2069 is coming to a close, and eighteen-year-old Bianca Butterman’s time-craft license is finally official. She’s ready for the Induction Day she’s waited for since she was a kid—the one that will secure her name on the Butterman family tree of time travelers. But ever since the media discovered Bianca is pop superstar Tristan Helms’ latest new honey, everything Bianca does or says becomes a target of criticism. Having her professional credibility topping the gossip sites across social media is an open invitation for the government to step in and regulate Bianca’s Induction. Now she will have to ask herself if saving 1500 people from drowning is worth losing everything she’s ever worked for, including the Butterman family biz.

Watch the Trailer!
Outside the time-craft I soak in the moment. Brisk air meets my cheeks and nose, as well as a salty freshness, and dark, easy waves extend as far as my vision goes. But it’s the sky that captures my breath. Clear, crisp and moonless, with so many stars—winking, as if speaking with each other in some secret celestial code. A warning, maybe?
Over my eighteen years of life I’ve heard the adage “the calm before the storm,” more times than I can count, but right here, right now, the potency of those words descends on my chest with a vengeance, heavy and iron-hard. Only a few hours now. Before this entire vessel assumes its place in history and claims the lives of 1500 souls.
