{Review} All Our Yesterdays @cristinterrill @DisneyHyperion

All Our Yesterdays
"You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain. Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside. Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was. All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

I am sorry to say that this one I was very disappointed with.  I had gotten it from Netgalley and fell in love with the cover and plot.  I loved the beginning of the story it was very mysterious and just plan awesome! It kept you intertwined in the story as well as entertained. It made you care about the characters and you wanted them to succeed as well as fail! But, after the book gets to around chapter 25 you find out that nothing is going to be settled in this book.  Then you find out that it is book 1 in a series.  This book would have been an AMAZING WONDERFUL STORY if it would have been a stand alone.  I believe it had enough of a story to finish it out in one book.  But trying to stretch it out over a few books just doesn't work.  It is going to make the story very slow! I hope that she finishes it out in two books and doesnt try for three.

 PS if you want to give this one a try it is 40% off at Walmart! Where I purchased a finished copy!
