Find your past.
Save your future.
What if you could change everything in your life you wish you’d done differently? Fix regret? Unlock the potential of your past?
That’s what Adam Swann did in New Yesterday, a city where events in the present can alter history. He’s living the life of his dreams, yet he can’t shake a name from his mind — the memory of a woman from a past he left behind.
Who is she? And despite the dangers that remembering his former life would pose, why can’t he bring himself to forget her?
Adam will unearth long-buried secrets as he searches the city for clues to the woman woven through his memory, haunting his every thought. As the truth of his past drags him into a conspiracy that threatens everything he knows, he’ll be forced to choose between the life of his dreams or facing the man he used to be.
Frasier is one of Fanfi’s very own and he sent me a copy of New Yesterday in exchange for review. This didn’t influence my review in any way.
Okay, I think the best way to start my review is to show you the various messages I sent Frasier while I was reading (with all the spoilers censored). I’ve never messaged an author before to rant and rave about their book before, so this was something special.
As I hit 25% of the way into the book he threw this really incredible moment at me and I just had to message him to get my feelings out there.
Then when I finished the book I was utterly blown away and it inspired this message.
I think you can tell that I was completely and utterly blown away by New Yesterday. Frasier keeps up a fast pace throughout and I found myself breathlessly reading to see what would happen and how Adam would get himself out of various situations. I have zero idea how Frasier kept track of all the changes and managed to make it so clear to the reader how changing the past influences the world around Adam, especially once Adam starts remembering…
The emotions I went through during New Yesterday were intense. I’d think I knew where things were going and then Frasier would reveal an important piece of information and I’d be completely shocked by the turn of events. The ending had me contemplating if I thought what Adam had been through was worth it or not, but I LOVE being left with that type of debate at the end of a book or show (the ending of The Last of Us is a great example).
It’s tough to discuss New Yesterday without hitting spoiler territory, and trust me you want to go in with no idea of where this rip-roaring story is going to take you. Frasier has crafted an unforgettable story and you’ll find yourself racing through the chapters to discover the truth.
If you want a background on how New Yesterday came to be and the events that lead to this unique past-changing city I’d really recommend reading Yestermorrow – it’s a prequel novella that will get you primed for New Yesterday.
