Review: Time's Edge by Rysa Walker

**I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**
4/5 Stars
Synopsis per Goodreads:
To stop her sadistic grandfather, Saul, and his band of time travelers from rewriting history, Kate must race to retrieve the CHRONOS keys before they fall into the Cyrists' hands. If she jumps back in time and pulls the wrong key--one that might tip off the Cyrists to her strategy--her whole plan could come crashing down, jeopardizing the future of millions of innocent people. Kate's only ally is Kiernan, who also carries the time-traveling gene. But their growing bond threatens everything Kate is trying to rebuild with Trey, her boyfriend who can't remember the relationship she can't forget.

As evidence of Saul's twisted mind builds, Kate's missions become more complex, blurring the line between good and evil. Which of the people Saul plans to sacrifice in the past can she and Kiernan save without risking their ultimate goal--or their own lives?
My thoughts on this book:
This is book 2 in the Chronos Files Series by Rysa Walker.  It's engaging, an easy read, and sucks in you, plus gives you a little bit of food for thought, as far as timelines and what happens if something changes a timeline.  What if?  What if JFK didn't get shot, what if Abraham Lincoln was killed before the emancipation, that sort of thing.  All that isn't in the book, and are just examples, but it shows how the slightest change of something could unravel everything. 
I got confused with this book, I feel almost like I missed a chapter.  Her dads parents are things that stumped me for almost the entire book, I kept reading hoping to find out what happened, what changed, cause I coulda swore that whoever was attached to the medallion would have the memories from before a change, and how does everyone not question that he has his parents??  I may have to reread the book, if my copy skipped a chapter, or not, I don't know, I just know that I caught it, and my brain had a hard time letting it go, it was in the back of my mind the entire time I read it.
**edited to add** a fellow friend of mine helped me figure out that the adoptive parents were the sick ones LOL but im leaving my confusion here, just because its confusing, she even mentioned how it was kinda weirdly written**
Other than that, I really liked the book, the characters were loveable or hateable depending on what side they were, the ending made you go UGH! cause you probably have to wait another year before book 3.  The scenery and the history was awesome.  I definitely recommend this series to anyone, especially if they are into the time travel thing.
