*I received a free copy of Lost Time: The Adventure Begins in exchange for a honest review*
"Robert Ridgely was a young professional living a rather mundane existence, but one he enjoyed. One day, Robert awakes to find he can't remember how he arrived at his destination. The more he finds out about what happened, the more confused he gets and the more time he realizes he's lost from his memory. As Robert persists, eventually he is drawn into an adventure that would change his life forever and place him on a path that he could never have imagined." -Goodreads
I really wanted to like this book, but I ended up actually hating it. The biggest problem I had was that there is no character development and very little world building. Due to this, I couldn't connect or grow to like the characters. In fact, I kinda disliked them all and didn't care about their lives. If this story was longer and made more sense, I could have enjoyed it. If the story was longer, Monfort could have gotten in a lot more detail that could have developed the world and it's inhabitants better. It feels as if Monfort rushed his way through writing and created a work that reads like a draft. Also I didn't like how rape was joked about in a casual manner at one point. Overall, this was a forgettable story with a few stand out moments, but not for good reasons.
Thanks for reading
