Departure by AG Riddle
En route to London from New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind.
Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they’ve crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home?
Five passengers seem to hold clues about what’s really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Schröder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist.
As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they’re letting on—answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past—to save our world . . . or end it.
Harper and Nick meet on a cross-Atlantic flight that suddenly crashes. And the two instantly form a bond, while trying to save as many of their fellow travelers as possible. Chaos ensues. But it soon becomes apparent that a couple of the passengers know something about the plane crash.
While it’s easy to compare Departure with Lost, the two stories are nothing alike save for the plan crash and engaging characters. It’s a unique and exciting story that science fiction fans will enjoy. Full of suspense, intrigue, ethics, and time travel – this isn’t a story I’ll soon forget. The intense plot paired with great characters made for a book that was hard to put down.
