Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Overstrike: Volume I of the Fixpoint Trilogy by CM Angus. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
When Matt Howard’s grandfather told him he must alter history to protect his newborn son, Matt thought the old man was crazy…
…Then he realised it was true.
Overstrike spans 4 generations of a family haunted by the prospect of an approaching alternate reality where their child has been erased from history.
Touching on themes of retro-causality, ethics and free will, and exploring ideas of cause, effect and retribution, it follows the path of Matt Howard, whose child, Ethan, is at risk, as he, his father and grandfather attempt to use their own abilities to manipulate reality in order to discover and prevent whoever is threatening Ethan.
Overstrike is volume I of Fixpoint, a trilogy about a family who discover their inherited ability to manipulate reality. It enables them to effect changes in order to safeguard themselves and all that they hold dear. But even seemingly small changes in a timeline can have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.
Follow the stories of the Howards, on a journey exploring reality, time and our own sense of self.
Volume I of the Fixpoint Trilogy
It’s been a while since I read a really good scifi. This is my first read by CM Angus and I’m excited to say it won’t be my last. This had such a cool plot line, and CM Angus made alternate realities unique.
This is just the start of a series, thankfully! I still have so many questions and I am definitely invested in this novel. There were many twists and exciting moments that kept me glued to the pages.
The characters were well crafted and I really enjoyed the depth to each of them. There were some sirpriseenthere too. I really loved how this spanned four generations. The family history and bond made the characters more relatable.
I loved Overstrike. I loved the concept of alternate realities and the twists and turns of this novel. Looking forward to more. Highly recommended!
