Samantha Rose and Linsey MacKenzie have established an idyllic life of married bliss in Australia, away from the Commonwealth Bureau of Investigation, away from mysterious corpses, and—most of all—away from Dr. Emir’s multiverse machine.

But Sam is a detective at heart, and even on the other side of the world, she can’t help wonder if a series of unsolved killings she reads about are related—not just to each other, but to the only unsolved case of her short career.

She knows Jane Doe’s true name, but Sam never discovered who killed the woman found in an empty Alabama field in spring of 2069. She doesn’t even know which version of herself she buried under a plain headstone.

When Mac suddenly disappears, Sam realizes she is going to once more be caught up in a silent war she still doesn’t fully understand. Every step she takes to save Mac puts the world she knows at risk, and moves her one step closer to becoming the girl in the grave.


Review: Decoherence by Liana Brooks is by far the most, dark and haunting read I have read. This time, travel is creepier than the others I have read. Travel in time and the possibility of dying in the future or past is a real danger to the agents. Agents that have been trained to go on missions using a time travel device. The death of innocents to prevent the future disaster coming soon seems like nothing to the scientist behind the machine. Yet the agents aka warriors feel the pain and frustration of their work. Some don’t know all the answers yet others can guess what’s going on pretty easily. Suspense is an element that is deeply embedded into this tale. Readers won’t know what will happen or what the characters will do to change or prevent certain outcomes from happening. Danger, destruction, and death seem to hang in the air every day, where the characters are concerned. Liana Brooks knew how to draw her readers into her world of fiction and keep them entertained until they reach the last page.

Decoherence is a time travel novel that reads more like a dark thriller. Liana Brooks will keep readers on the edge of their seats as the race along with the main character in rescuing her husband. A mystery of deaths that bring Sam’s hair on edge as she tries to defy everything in order to save the one she loves. The intensity of this story will hook readers in forever. I was dragged into it and didn’t want the novel to end. There’s mystery, intrigue and a little romance to satisfy readers every taste. The risks are high and time will be hard to beat. Decoherence is a novel worth reading. Kept me guessing. Gripping, edgy, and well-written. Overall, I highly recommend Liana Brooks’ stunning book to all.
