Sideswiped - I want Jenks Back!

TITLE: Sideswiped (The Peri Reed Chronicles #0.5)
AUTHOR: Kim Harrison
PUBLISHING DATE: August 10, 2015
PUBLISHER: Pocket Star

FROM GOODREADS:  Don’t miss this thrilling first look into the elite world of Peri Reed, government agency operative extraordinaire, and catch more of her character in The Drafter, the first book in the all-new suspense trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison, out September 1.

Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.

Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it. Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough…

I read this to get a good feeling on Harrison's new series and sad to say, I am not completely sold. This novella was a good introduction to the world of The Drafter, but I had a hard time becoming invested in the whole "drafting" process. I will also admit that part of the problem may be on my part. I loved The Hollows series so much, especially Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks, that I am finding it hard to transition to new characters and new worlds.

I liked Peri as a character and am interested to learn more about her. And I already have The Drafter on reserve at the library so I will give the series a chance...but oh, I do miss my Jenks!
