A film version of a book? Been there. A novelization of a movie? Done that. A stage adaptation of a novel? Old news. Now it's time for something new. Timecross'd: A Love Story Out of Time is the first instance ever of a sci-fi novel that had its genesis as a successful Houston stage production.
Award-winning playwright Sean K. Thompson has taken his lauded drama, Timecross'd, and given it new life as an exciting debut novel. Already a smash on stage, new dimensions are charted in the thrilling new novel, Timecross'd: A Love Story Out of Time.
Hundreds of people loved the stage version highlighting action and ShakespeareÂ comedy and tragedyÂ true love and time travel.
With nail biting action, Timecross'd will keep you turning pages deep into the night and will challenge every notion youÂve had about "reality." It's your typical tale where boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl loses boy, girl finds boy, boy dies, and then the real fun begins.
It's exactly what you get when you cross Romeo and Juliet with an action-packed sci-fi novel. Dr. Abigail Ross is a woman with a problem. She's invented the Loop, a machine capable of sending people through time, yet she's the last person in the world youÂd want to have access to all of history. An abusive father and murderous mother have left her a headstrong alcoholic, emotionally inaccessible, and completely incapable of love. Pity no one bothered telling that to her partner Zachary Walker, the timid history professor who has inadvertently fallen head over heels for her.
Too little too late, Abby discovers true love. But with the typical bad timing of this pair of timecross'd lovers, the Loop is stolen, Zachary is killed and Abby finds herself in a strange new world where she is a second-rate technician and engaged to a guy named Paris. But Zach's death is only the beginning of their loveÂ and adventures. Can Abby overcome skewed realities, alternate timelines, her inner demons and a godlike Storyteller to once again cross paths with her soulmate?
