They took everything: her family, her home, her childhood.

By the age of nineteen, Raven has spent most of her life in the sprawling slums of America, fighting as a rebel against the dictatorship. When the rebellion steals an experimental time-travel device, she travels back five decades to the year 2013. Her plan: assassinate the future dictator when he is still young and vulnerable, long before he comes to power. She must move fast to reshape history, because agents from her own time are on her trail, ready to execute her on sight.

Some advance reviews of Nomad:

"Raven’s personality and smarts made it easy for me to take a liking to her. She’s quick on her feet and intelligent in a way that completely fits with where she’s really from – the future is not a pretty place... The advancement in technology, the history that lead to this dystopian society, even the fashion, it’s a solidly imagined world that is made believably futuristic without any overkill." -Xpresso Reads

"I really liked this character. She was strong, determined, smart and sincere. She was also witty and resourceful. As female leads go, Raven pretty much nailed it...There was also plenty of action, humor, romance and heartbreak." -Creative Deeds

"This book was epic beyond epicness. What does that mean? It means JL Bryan took the best parts of almost every book I have read and threw them in here. It was a wild ride." -Contagious Reads

"From the minute I met Raven I connected with her. She is so easily relatable. She's smart and tough, but also kind and sensitive...I ended up really caring for each and every character and I was just hoping for a happy ending for all of them. And wow that ending. Those last few pages I was literally reading the book at the edge of my couch!" -Ladybug Storytime

"Raven was a fantastic character that I loved from the start....Love time travel reads? Well then this is the book for you. NOMAD is a definite must read!" -I Read Indie

"I absolutely loved this book....I enjoyed it from start to finish and read it in about one day, which doesn't happen very much anymore." -You Could Be Wishing on a Star
