Without warning, the world comes to an end for Hannah and Amanda Given. The sky looms frigid white. The electricity falters. Airplanes everywhere crash to the ground. But the Givens are saved by mysterious strangers, three fearsome and beautiful beings who force each sister to wear a plain silver bracelet. Within moments, the sky comes down in a crushing sheet of light and everything around them is gone. Shielded from the devastation by their silver adornments, the Givens suddenly find themselves elsewhere, a strange new Earth where restaurants move through the air like flying saucers and the fabric of time is manipulated by common household appliances. Soon Hannah and Amanda are joined by four other survivors from their world, including a mordant cartoonist, a shy teenage girl, a brilliant young Australian, and a troubled ex-prodigy. Hunted by enemies they never knew they had and afflicted with temporal abilities they never wanted, the sisters and their companions begin a cross-country journey to find the one man who can save them, before time runs out.

Outstanding! I give author Price "A" for originality, plot, characters, and quality of writing. This book is a perfect mix of action and dialogue. The characters are introspective without becoming boring. The "heroes" have flaws, the "villains" believe they are the "good guys"...and the plot twists leave the reader guessing until the end. I tend to prefer hard science fiction over fantasy, but Price blends the two seamlessly. Although this is the first book in a new series, it does have a comfortable ending (which is a big plus in my estimation; I hate cliffhangers!) If I have any criticism, it's the relative lack of world building. While Price tells us what we need to know, it's just the foundation. If he expands upon the setting in the next book(s) as skillfully as he develops the plot and characters in this one, this series is sure to make my "favorites" list.
