Synopsis: They say time can't stand still. They're wrong.
Siggy Lindquist was looking for something better than the life she left behind. What she found was a job at the Institute for the Criminally Insane, home to the galaxy's deadliest criminals -- human monsters caged for the rest of their unnatural lives.
Now all Siggy wants to do is get through each day with her safety and sanity intact. But when two of the Institute's most dangerous inmates take an interest in her, for their own twisted reasons, she is caught up in a potential war between two races -- a war that only a forgotten secret from her past can prevent. Desperate to avert disaster, Siggy finds herself in a galaxy-spanning race against time -- and time stands still for no one.
Or does it?
Review: Wow! Broken Time has it all - romance, suspense, heartbreak, serial killers, aliens, time distortions...
As I read more of Ms. Devenport's work, I am very impressed with how deftly she builds worlds and characters into which you can easily get swept away. Siggy was definitely my favorite character, but there are so many you come to care about, too. I was intrigued by the Professor, one of the serial killers on Monster Row, and the mystery of who and what he really is. The Time Pockets were something I'd heard of, in theoretical physics, but the way they were put to use here was ingenious. Altogether, Broken Time is a spellbinding book of galactic proportions. It will be difficult to put it down once you've picked it up!
