"Kristen, an empath, feels his emotions before they met... will he kill her or love her?"
Rider Savage was sent from five hundred years in the future
to what is now the present to kill Kristen Skipworth,
mother of all Deviants. This subspecies of human beings
can enter your mind at will and destroy your memories. A
deviant killed his wife and he volunteered to undergo the
dehumanizing program that would make him an efficient
Kristen, a maternal empath, feels his emotions before she
met the sick man who was on the verge of death. When she
finally meets him, she takes him to the clinic where she
works as a physician to fix up his injuries. When he
regains consciousness and learns who she is, he knows he
should kill her but something is holding him back. When
she learns who he is and where he came from she thinks he
is crazy until somebody tries to kill her using a blaster
and gadgetry not invented yet. She finally believes him.
However, knowing the truth does not prevent her from loving
him and Rider reciprocates the feelings even though he was
programmed to kill her.
TIME RIDER is a fantastic work of romantic suspense that
would make an action-packed movie along the lines of 'The
Terminator.' Rickey R. Mallory is brilliant at creating
characters whom readers will adore while showing expertise
at creating a fast paced sub-plot that will keep readers
turning the pages until the book is finished. TIME RIDER
deserves to go on the 'keeper shelf' because decades from
now it will be considered a classic.
