NA Fiction | Sci-Fi
“With more and more Red Helixes turning up missing or dead, the Shadow Ravens are ready to take their fight to Doctor Nagi himself.
But breaking into Alpha Citadel is no cakewalk, and Quanta isn’t so sure about this whole “teamwork” thing.
If she and the Ravens can’t learn to work together, no amount of rewinding time will save them from the inevitable.
And if the Seligo win, everyone loses.”

pooled ink Review:
This book marks the end of Quanta’s trilogy within the Shadow Ravens series. I’m sad that it’s over but at the same time it felt ready for her story to come to a close. I’m not sure yet if The Shadow Ravens series has ended or if it will continue with a shift to a different or a new character’s story, but I certainly hope so! The world crafted within this series has been intricate and fascinating. And while I really enjoyed reading about Quanta, I’m ready to let a new character step into the spotlight.
Quanta and Tair are a cute couple and I’ve loved reading about them since they met. Quanta is growing stronger with her ability to see timeghosts and sort through the closest futures. Tair is still thoughtful and brilliant but we do see him unusually distracted and on edge as his sister, Cassie, comes back into play only to become one of Nagi’s prisoners.
Cipher, Dex, Knight, Devan, and crew continue to fill the pages with tactics, banter, camaraderie, and adventure as they join Quanta and Tair to rescue those taken from them and bring Nagi down once and for all.
We get to see a bit more of Seligo life as well as take a dip into the underground gaming world which I really loved reading about. Cassie and Roboloco was pretty dang awesome. Overall this book continued to expand the world building as the story continued its escalation towards justice.
I admit at first I thought that the plot felt a bit repetitive. I mean it was good and entertaining and I still loved all the characters but it felt a bit too similar to the last book. But then of course Dodge starts writing in all of these interesting obstacles and twists so instead of merely breaking into Doctor Nagi’s facility again Quanta and her team take things a whole step further.
I gotta say, I’ve really enjoyed reading Quanta’s journey and I’m curious to read more of The Shadow Ravens. Whatever comes next for them will be a different ball game.
Quanta Rewind is the end of Quanta’s trilogy and what an exciting journey it’s been. The Shadow Ravens is a thrilling sci-fi series that traps you in a world of science, powers, rebels, and greed.
