Review of Time Trap and Time Return by Micah Caida

Author: Micah Caida
Genres: Young Adult Science Fiction
**** This Book will be available for free in June at You will be able to read it on ANY device.****
Her memory is blank.
Her future's in question.
Her power is dangerous.

Waking up in an unknown world, Rayen learns only that she's seventeen and is hunted by a sentient beast. Terrified that she may never learn who she really is or find her way back to her home, she's captured in a land that is at times familiar even if the people and the structures seem alien. When local law enforcement delivers her to a private school, she's labeled as a Native American runaway, and Rayen discovers a secret with deadly repercussions. Forced into an unlikely alliance with a computer savvy street punk and a gifted oddball girl to save their world - and the future - Rayen finds the key to an identity that no person would want.
Time Trap is the first  book in The Red Moon Trilogy.  At the beginning of the story you meet Rayen who wakes up in a desert with no memory of who she is or anything about where she is from. On her journey  to find out about herself she meets Gabby and Tony. The fun thing is though the story you get to learn about Rayen as she learns about herself and the world she woke up in in this amazing SciFi adventure. Through the book you are taken from our world to another that is so different from our own some of the difference sound awesome others not so much. There are so many twist and turns that keeps Time Trap interesting and the story going that you can't wait to turn the page to see what happens next.   The thing I liked most is how the author describes everything in such detail that you can actually get a visual of what the world is like for these characters. I will be the first to admit I am not a overly huge SciFi book fan but Time Trap won me over from the first page and I can't wait to see what is in store for Rayen, Gabby and Tony in book two. I give this book 5 Cogs!

Rayen promised to return, Gabby must return, and Tony can't return.

Three teenage friends are connected by a shared secret that forces a decision with consequences no one expects. When Rayen arrives on the Red Moon sphere again, she finds shocking changes. Her arrival causes more upheaval and danger for the MystiK children, creating a heart wrenching challenge for Callan who must choose between duty and holding onto the one girl he can't have. But walking away is harder than he expects when a new MystiK male in the sphere is poised to take Callan's place. Under threat of attack from an unexpected enemy, Rayen and Callan must put their personal feelings aside to unite a village in chaos.

Choices backfire, trust is forfeit and alliances shift as elements of the Damian Prophecy begin to fall into place and the time of reckoning is closer than anyone expected.

Time Return is the second book in the Red Moon trilogy. What can I say about Time Return that I haven't already said about Time Trap. Time Return begins right where Time Trap ended. There is no guessing what happened to the characters in-between books. This book actually eclipses the first book to me. You again get taken on a journey as Rayen and  friends struggle to get back...To where I won't say in case you haven't read the first book yet... If you think you have things figured out by the end of Time Trap don't bet on it. This book if fill with the same amount if not more of the twist and turns and up and downs. Yes there are characters you want to beat over the head to knock some sense into them and others you just want to beat over the head. Overall I say it is a must read.. This trilogy is doing nothing but getting better and better! I can't wait to see how this trilogy is going to end!  I give this book 5 Cogs!
