TimeShift is a gripping journey of suspense, drama and sci-fi action spanning 900 years in 185 days. Four interconnected story lines turn up the heat in this futuristic mystery techno-thriller.

Owen Taylor is suspicious when a team arrives from eighty years in the future to enlist him for knowledge they claim only he possesses.

timeshift-front-backIn 2097, the missing link to true Artificial Intelligence when conventional robots are programmed with human personalities and feelings, giving them the desire to “be.” While these free-thinking robots struggle to understand their own existence, they discover a dislike for the inefficiencies and materialism of human society. Quietly, they strive to free their race from human constraints and their population explosion goes unnoticed until it’s too late.

Tricity is on the brink of falling into the robots’ clutches and the only solution whereby control of the city can be seized from the metallic malcontents is so unconventional that the odds of success are virtually nonexistent. During this 185-day mission, teams must alter elements of the past to save the future. If they are successful, time will “shift” and rewrite the future without the robots’ destruction.

While Owen learns that his work on a top secret project has made him the world’s foremost Elevanium expert from 2016 through to 2097, he has no idea how he can help save his city—from the clutches of rogue, experimental robots, eighty years before the conflict even erupts. Owen holds the key to saving the future in 2097, if he can stay alive long enough to help. Caught up in a whirlwind of time travel, futuristic technologies and narrowly escaping mysterious accidents, Owen’s life may never return to normal.

slide_01_modelDuring this 185-day mission, each team must alter elements of the past to save the future. Completing the mission in bonded time, an untested theory until now, increases the risk their actions could have on civilization—both past and present. If they are successful, time will “shift” and rewrite the future without the robots’ destruction. Failure to complete any part of the mission at the exact moment of the timeshift will negatively alter 2097 forever.

TimeShift unravels the complex relationships and unique challenges faced by each team member during this seemingly impossible endeavour. Each person has the potential to shift time in a way that could drastically alter or undo key events and de-create people throughout history, changing the world for better…or for worse.

"I read TimeShift over a couple of weeks this summer and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The character development is really strong, you truly care about their story and their well-being. The world Kris Trudeau created is rich and immersive and relatable enough to really touch home. The story is exciting and really a page turner in the last third as the pressure builds!"
-Grant Powers

"I am enjoying the book immensely! TimeShift introduces interesting, relatable characters that you want to know more about. The ideas of what technology may be capable of in the future and it's impact on society for better or for worse, is fascinating. Excellent flow when switching between the storylines of each group, there is a natural transition from one mission's story to the next. The descriptive language gives the reader a complete mental picture without being over flowery or excessive. I can't wait to see how the characters stories play out and if they are able to complete their missions and change the future. Very impressive work and if I didn't know different I would never believe this was a first novel. The writing and story is on par with a seasoned writer. Excellent!"
- Christine McBride

"TimeShift is a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go until it's finished. From the foundation of the main ideas to the realistically constructed characters this story is well thought out and one I immensely enjoyed. A very good read!"
- Rick Bossom

"I love the book! So many great stories within one book. Never a dull moment with this fast-paced book. I can't wait for the next one."
- Julie K.

"This book is a story within a story within a story...TimeShift has many layers to get immersed in. Not only does the author have an incredible ability of "painting a picture" with her descriptions, she creates a Utopian environment for the visually imaginative reader. I refer to this type of read as mind candy! I had a hard time putting this book down once I started reading it."
- Corrie Henning

You have masterfully woven a mystery, a love story and science fiction into a logical and exciting book. It was fun, exciting and leaves me wanting more. Great and awesome job, I can't say enough!
- Ron Vert

I don’t normally read Science Fiction novels but TimeShift was the perfect mix of SciFi, Adventure and Mystery with the perfect dash of Romance. It had a great story line, fantastic characters (I had several favourites) and a lot of creativity. I savoured each chapter and found myself wishing there was a sequel as soon as I finished it. I want to see Time Shift as a movie! Thank you Kris for the fun trip into the future. You made it easy to picture!
- Michelle Whetter

I'm not one for mystery thrillers or science fiction but this story grabbed my attention and I found it difficult to put down!
- Sherryl Carrol

Absolutely loved your book! At first I thought it was such a familiar story line in sci-fi, but this was very different and I never once found myself making any comparisons. I am the kind of person who starts many books but finishes few. I kept thinking about Timeshift when I wasn't reading it. Kept looking at how far along I was and was disappointed it would end soon. I Hope you write a sequel.
