Loop (Loop #1) by Karen Akins ~ Review by Fallon

4 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her. 

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future. 

Fallon's Review:

Loop starts off with Bree heading into the past for a mission and is soon in deep water. She meets Finn a nerdy teen who tries to help her locate what she is looking for. Little does Bree know she just found herself in the company of a family of travelers from the past.

Bree lost something in the past before she could finish the job she needed to do. She now switches missions with her friend to be able to go back. Instead of the exact time she missed it by 3 years. Now Finn is not so geeky and future Bree has been in contact with him. This starts a sticky situation. Not understanding what future her was thinking.

Finn has promised future Bree to protector her past self. Bree is then pulled back into the future again, but Finn latches on and goes with her. This starts off a non-stop race for time in this twist and turn adventure.

Loop started off a little slow but soon picked up. I wanted a little more romance but can not wait to read Twist. The world building and adventure made this book a complete winner. I am giving Loop 4 out of 5 stars.


  1. I am liking Loop by the minute ..... come on just look at the cover. Also since I apparently got accepted for the second book Twist on netgalley before I even had the chance to blink ...... ohhhhh i'm mention Time Travel and i'm a goner. Definitely picking this up next. Great review.
