Danele J. Rotharmel introducing her latest book - Time Trap

Time Trap - The Time Counselor Chronicles #2

I'm excited to have Danele return today with her latest book. She is such an interesting writer and I absolutely can't put her books down.

Bio:  Danele Rotharmel grew up with a love of the literary word, and by age five, she knew she wanted to be a writer. However, her life took an unexpected turn when a mysterious illness brought her close to death. Eventually, she learned that a low-level carbon monoxide leak from a faulty furnace in her home was slowly poisoning her. This poisoning triggered severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and partial amnesia.
       During this time, the hardest thing she faced was a crisis of faith. She had to quit her job and stop going to church. She couldn’t write, couldn’t drive, and could barely remember who she was. To say she was upset with the Lord was an understatement. She began reexamining her faith in light of her illness, and eventually, she came to the firm conclusion that God is real, God is good, God is interested and involved, and God is trustworthy regardless of tragedy.
       When her illness became even more severe, she was put into quarantine and could only talk to friends and extended family through the glass of a window. This quarantine lasted for seven years. During this time, she wrote the first six books in The Time Counselor Chronicles.
       Danele currently lives in Colorado where she continues to write. Although her journey back to health was long and difficult, it provided her with the opportunity to grow closer to God and to write her books. For that, she is forever thankful.

A little bit about Time Trap:  When problems arise during a field exam, Director Peter Matthews and Dr. Laura Nelson are sent through a time portal to investigate.  While they search for their missing cadets, they encounter an enemy who is calculating and brutal—a mysterious nemesis who is holding a grudge against the TEMCO program.  As Peter and Laura race to unravel clues directing them to their kidnapped cadets, their own survival comes into question.  A deadly trap has been set, and they are forced to pit their wits against a serial killer who is intent on playing a deadly chess game through time itself. 

My Review:  The second book in the Time Counselor Chronicles is just as exciting as the first. Ms Rotharmel delivers an exciting punch to anyone looking for a sci-fi adventure. The characters are well established and with the interesting development of several plots intertwining and weaving together to the end, this book cannot be put down.

Once again we visit TEMCO Labs and the time counselors. Dan and Gil arrive back through the blue glow with their new son. The baby’s delivery causes Gil’s old injuries to flair, and she and Dan remain at the hospital while the other employees keep it from them that something is dreadfully wrong at the lab.

Again I’m impressed with the writing craft displayed in this series of books and wildly impressed with Ms. Rotharmel’s talent. Can’t wait for number three!
