*[Blog Tour Review] Tomorrow (Yesterday #2) by C.K. Kelly Martin

Tomorrow
 
Summary:
 
The sci-fi adventure that began with Yesterday continues with a thriller that can also be read as a standalone.

2063, United North America: climate change has rendered great swathes of the country uninhabitable, the rise of robot workers has created mass unemployment, eco-terrorism is a constant threat and a 2059 nuclear exchange between Pakistan and India has torn large holes in the world's ozone layer and pushed humanity's existence towards a cliff.

Garren and Freya have managed to escape that nightmare world and lose themselves in 1986 Vancouver. But the future's reach is long, and they're no longer safe there. No one is. Shadowy forces are intent on influencing the past's path. And when Freya is taken, it's up to Garren to save both her, and the future.

Once again Martin shows that Canadian authors can and do write impressive YA fiction with an interesting twist. Last year I read Yesterday by Martin and really enjoyed the fact that this Canadian author wrote a novel set in Canada which is something I, as a Canadian myself don't see much of in YA fiction.
 
While Yesterday was set where I live in Toronto in the 80's. Tomorrow takes place in Vancouver, yet another place I don't see too many novels set in. Once again, I was impressed by the details that Martin gave when it came to describing places in Vancouver which was something I was really happy to see carried over from the first book.
 
It's been quite some time since I read the book but it was still nice to catch up with Freya and her love interest Garren. I felt that the characters were more genuine and better developed in this installment than they were in the first book. I liked seeing them mature and really come into there own in this one and how things between them were going.
 
The plot, was more intricate than the first book as well. While Yesterday may have been intricate enough for a first book in a series I found that this one was put together a little better, things were right with Tomorrow.
 
I liked how there was a bit of a PSA that was in this book. Our future is fragile, and that it's futile to think that we can keep doing things at the rate were going we don't have that much of a bright future. I was born in 1990 and I can see drastic environmental changes that have happened in my lifetime already that were probably thought impossible decades ago.
 
With a strong and intriguing plot with drama, action and romance mixed in I really enjoyed C.K. Kelly Martin's sequel. I could tell that the author really hit her stride when it came to the characters in this one as well as the plot being very strong, fast paced and well written.
 
I would recommend this book to anyone who has read and enjoyed the first book in this series and if you haven't read it yet I highly recommend giving it a try especially if you love YA dystopian/sci-fi/time travel books because even though this is a second book it can be read as a standalone novel.
