Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information--but not everyone made it back to the present alive. Now Elena's dealing with her survivor's guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she's done with time travel and Aether Corporation.

But Aether's not done with her--or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether's latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort. They arrive in a future that's amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation's reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.

But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost--or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything--including their relationship--to save their friends.

The second book in the New York Times bestselling Future Shock trilogy.

Guest Post
Ten Time Travel Facts from Future Threat

1) Time travel to the past is not possible, but time travel to the future IS possible.

2) The only known time machine (aka the accelerator) was created by Dr. Robert Walters for Aether Corporation.

3) The accelerator works by creating an opening into the future, known as an aperture, which only lasts for sixty seconds.

4) Due to time dilation, every hour you spend in the future amounts to only a few seconds in the present.

5) Future shock occurs in all time travelers over a certain age and causes memory loss and other symptoms upon arrival back in the present.

6) The risk of future shock gets higher the longer you spend in the future and the more times you visit it.

7) Interacting with a future version of yourself has been proven to be safe, although it’s still not recommended.

8) Interacting with another time traveling version of yourself is not safe and will result in a paradox.

9) Knowing too much about your own future can be catastrophic.

10) The future CAN be changed.

Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life--or so she thinks. When powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life.

Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong and they break the only rule they were given: do not look into their own fates.

Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her eidetic memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends and herself.
