Skynoise by Ernie Lindsey

8:30 pm 0 Comments A+ a-

In 1587, over one hundred colonists, desperate for a better life in the new world, disappear without a trace from a settlement on tiny Roanoke Island, just off the coast of North Carolina. 

And now, in the present day, tremendous, undulating wails are being heard in the sky all over the world, with no apparent earthly origin. 

To Helen Weils, bestselling author and respected academic, history is a realm of observable facts, each one carefully weighed and inspected. So when she encounters Chip Sledd, a conspiracy theorist who insists there’s an unimaginable connection between the disappearance of the colonists in 1587 and the strange noises in the sky, she's quick to dismiss his theories as the irrational ramblings of a lunatic. But when black-suited agents begin pursuing her and Chip, Helen soon realizes that the past is a lot more flexible than she ever thought possible -- and seeking the truth sometimes means accepting the strangest theory of them all.




Hey! Here's my review.

Skynoise is the first book I have read by Ernie Lindsay. This book is a great time-travel sci-fi mystery thriller with elements of history and a touch of romance. I felt the time travel theory was explained well enough for me to grasp without exploding my brain. The plot kept me guessing the whole way through, I was never quite sure who I could trust. 

I listened to the audiobook edition which I received free from Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was well suited to the story. Rebecca Roberts spoke clearly and at a good pace. Her characterisations were fantastic and she helped to build the tension throughout the book.
