Blog Tour: Quantum Entanglement by Liesel K. Hill

Welcome to my stop on the Quantum Entanglement Blog Tour
hosted by Liesel K. Hill herself!
In this post, you will find a super cool guest post done by Liesel. :) and a Goodreads giveaway.

Quantum Entanglement (Interchron #2)Blurb:

Five months after traveling to a post-apocalyptic future where collectives reign supreme and individuals have been hunted to the verge of extinction, Maggie Harper was returned to her own time until the threat to her life could be neutralized. She thought Marcus and the others would return for her within a few weeks, and now she’s beginning to worry. 

When travelers from the future finally show up to collect her, it’s not who she expected. With the return of her memories, she wants more than ever to see Marcus again, but a snake-like woman whose abilities are a perfect match for Maggie’s, an injured Traveler, and decades of civil unrest to wade through all stand in the way of their reunion.

Meanwhile, Marcus and Karl traipse through the countryside, trying to neutralize Colin, who’s promised to brutalize and murder Maggie if he can get his hands on her. When a collective woman is left for dead, Marcus heals her, hoping she’ll be the key to killing Colin and bringing Maggie back. But she may prove as much a hindrance as a help.

The team struggles to get their bearings, but things happen faster than they know. The collectives are coalescing, power is shifting, and the one called B is putting sinister plans into action. If the team can’t reunite and get a handle on the situation, their freedom and individuality—perhaps their very identity—will be ripped away before they can catch their breath.

Guest Post: Top Ten Things to Put in Your Time Travel Kit

Hello Wonderful Readers! Has this ever happened to you? You’re minding your own business and going about your day, when life happens and you are forced, through no fault of your own, to leap frog through time without warning? If so, don’t beat yourself up. It happens to the best of us. However, you may want to consider keeping a Time Travel kit in the trunk of your car or basket of your bike. You know, just in case. It’ll make your next Traveling experience much less stressful.

Recommended Items:

The first few are basic supplies. If you’re Traveler is injured, or can only jump a handful of years at a time, the trip may take you several days or even weeks. You’ll need emergency supplies.

10. A week’s worth of rationed meals and water.

9. Space blanket and a change of clothes.
8. Portable shelter--tent or waterproof tarp will work.
7. First Aid Kit. 

6. A weapon of some kind. I’d recommend a gun or Taser. Maybe a light saber if you can find one. Jumping into the future, you have no idea what kind of political atmosphere you’ll be landing in. Granted, depending on the status of neurochemical abilities in the time you land in, weapons may be obsolete, but having a bona fide weapon is still better than looking for rocks to throw. Besides, if your trip takes longer than a week, a weapon can also be used to hunt.

5. Conduit stone or other neurochemical focusing device. If you get captured in another time, especially by people with the ability to block neurochemical energy, it might be prudent to have something that will amplify your abilities. Comes in handy when fleeing from oppressive, futuristic regimes.

4. Concealer and/or Protector. Okay, you can’t really pack people with these abilities into your kit, but they sure are convenient in a tight spot. Perhaps try to grab someone with one of these abilities on the fly before you actually Travel. (Forcible kidnapping recommended.) Or just hone your own skills in these areas.

3. A timeline of the future. You won’t know when you are until you get there. You’ll have to look around and figure it out based on what’s happening in the society of the time. A timeline that includes key events will help you figure it out more quickly. And, let’s face it, the sooner you can blend in, the better.

2. A great attitude. Cheesy, I know. But let’s face it: Dropping everything to leap-frog through time while being chased by dangerous--sometimes homicidal--futuristic governments, can be rather stressful. A positive attitude goes a long way. And your fellow Travelers will sure appreciate it.

1. A book. If, like in #7-10, your Traveler requires rest between jumps, you may end up with a lot of downtime. And if you land in a period where it’s too dangerous to go down into the cities, TV may not be an option. Sure, you could bring board games, but I infinitely prefer a book. Here’s a universal truth for you: A well-written book can save your sanity on the average, impromptu trip through the post-apocalyptic future.

Note: if there are any items that you, personally can’t live without--medication, sentimental items, your Twilight Barbie Doll collection--make sure and pack those too. There’s no telling how long trips like this can last.

Of course, these are just recommendations. You don’t have to have a Time Travel kit, but if you opt not to put one together and find yourself being chased one hundred years from now by homicidal collective goons…well, don’t say I didn't warn you.

Here’s to making all your Time Travel trips…survivable. Cheers!

My Thoughts (of the guest post):
Now that was just brilliant~ :D You gotta admit it guys, it was totally fun to read. Great job, Liesel! Such a creative idea that me, myself, and I would have definitely not have thought up of. It's great having you here on my blog~ 

Look for the review later~ (it's probably taking me longer to write the review then reading. I'm still writing reviews for books I've read in June. OMG.) 

P.S. And of course, being me, I color-coded everything. Haha.
