Synopsis (and cover image) courtesy of Goodreads:
Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her to use her body as a weapon, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run.
Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.
When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.
Amazing start to a brand new series!
Even though this book is set only fifteen years in the future, there have been so many advancements and people are able to erase pasts or even go back in time to change an outcome. And it's Peri whom has this gift.
A majority of the book is narrated from Peri's perspective, but unfortunately Peri's mind has been erased, making her not the most reliable narrator.
I must admit I was a little confused at first because there were so many twists and turns in the plot, but I'm so glad I stuck with it because this book was AMAZING!!! Warning, you cannot just skim through this book, if you miss even one page you could be missing vital information.
The reader, along with Peri must piece together information in order to figure out whom she can trust.
A portion of the book is told from Silas' point of view and I enjoyed reading from his point of view because it was refreshing to get some reliable information, but I must admit I'm a Jack fan all the way!
People may disagree with me on this but I have faith in him and I LOVED the way Harrison ended things, it was perfect and I can't wait to read the next instalment of this series.
I haven't read much by Harrison, but from what I have read, I'd say The Drafter is completely different from any of her other work.
I completely recommend this read but be assured this read will require your full attention, you won't be sorry!
