The BookViral Review:

A cerebral new time travelling thriller that’s considerably more contemplative than the vast majority of genre releases Future’s Dark Past proves a stylish head trip. A read that teases the brain and touches the heart as its twists and turns keep multiplying whilst never losing sight of the need for narrative sustainability.

Most time travelling thrillers are written to inspire more awe more than contemplation but the best of time travel fiction, particularly the more complex ones, are different and a treat for more eclectic thinkers who get a rush of endorphins from trying to untangle knotty chronology or wrap their heads around cortex-trying paradoxes. And it’s a credit to J.L. Yarrow that Future’s Dark Past falls in this category.

It takes talent to create something engrossing and new in the timeworn time-travel odyssey genre and Future’s Dark Past is never at a loss for surprises. It’s a novel of ideas that doesn’t skimp on the action but through Kant and Kristen, readers are asked to consider the real-world ramifications of its science-fiction and perhaps most importantly whether a person’s destiny is locked into place—not because the future has already been written, but because of the kind of person they are.

Refreshingly free of plot jarring timeline hiccups, Future’s Dark Past how-the-present-affects-the-future conundrums don’t jumble its narrative with a mélange of time-travel touchstones because J.L. Yarrow first and foremost considers the emotional impact on Future’s Dark Past key characters. A level of care that extends to its supporting cast which does more than just take up the spaces around Kristen, Kant and Hunter to add narrative depth.

Here Future’s Dark Past reaches a conclusion common to a lot of time-travel stories, which is that knowledge of the future doesn’t necessarily empower people to change it and encourages readers to contemplate how and why humanity keeps making the same tragic mistakes.

A highly imaginative read that’s engaging from start to finish, Future’s Dark Past is a good as the genre gets and is sure to leave its readers chaffing at the bit for Book 2. A five-star read it is unreservedly recommended!

A book comprising of the ‘Facebook Blog’ meanderings of Bridgette Campbell, Denham Hall is an amusingly wry observation of the upper class, seen through the eyes of an oestrogen-fuelled pubescent teen. A tale of English snobbery at its best, this collection of mini-stories makes for a refreshingly unique tongue-in-cheek read.

Life and Death – living forever.

We are constantly and enduringly fascinated with fictional accounts of parallel existence, alternative realities and genetic engineering. Films such as ‘The Fountain’ present immortality as attainable, whilst books such as ‘The Book Thief’ (Markus Zusak) explore the nature of death, in this case by death himself acting as narrator.
