I’m back with the sequel to Past Tense for this week’s Bookish Wednesday! It’s Present Tense, Book 02 of the Days of Future Past, by John Van Stry!

Plot Synopsis: Coyote has a new task for Paul, one that involves him traveling north hundreds of miles over the post-apocalyptic landscape of California, the place that Paul once called home.  Thankfully, Sarah and Heather have both decided to go with him and between Heather’s shooting skills and Sarah’s magical ones; Paul thinks he might just live through whatever scheme Coyote has enlisted him in. If he can live through telling the girls just what Coyote’s got him carrying in his pack now of course….

Plot: The plot is again pretty good, though not super amazing it was entertaining enough. There is plenty of action and adventure along with harebrained ideas that are plenty of fun to experience through the story.

Characters: We get introduced to quite a few new characters, and while saying who my favorite new one would be a huge spoiler, I will say that Coyote is definitely my favorite overall character.

Overall: A solid sequel and middle book in a solid trilogy.
