Through the Triangle by C. P. Stewart

Amazon link for Through the Triangle
Book Description:

Jake Myers and his semi-estranged teenaged son Nathan were supposed to be on a healing jaunt: a Florida vacation spent deep-sea fishing and theme park hopping. But they and the three other passengers aboard Oblique View happened to be in the wrong place at the right time – in a storm within the Devil’s Triangle. On a deserted shore, they discover they are in the right place at the wrong time – the Florida coast nearly three-hundred years in the future. Then there’s the metropolis nearby that appears to be deserted … appears, that is...

Now, this group is about to confront a dangerous species - part animal/part human … that can see in the dark. Together with a loose association of other humans, fellow travelers cast off in this strange land and strange time, they’ll have to rely on instinct and cunning to survive. But something as deadly as the Devil’s Triangle they just passed through might be one of their own…

What follows is a journey of enlightenment as Jake discovers the shocking historical events leading to this new reality and the love lurking right under his nose. It all combines for a savvy time-travel thriller that will keep you guessing right up until the shocking finale.

My Review:

Through the Triangle is an interesting and thought provoking sci-fi thriller. No area brings to mind more mystery and fear than The Devil’s Triangle, and this book creates a unique story for this location. The character development in the book is outstanding. I confess that I can get lost if there are too many characters to keep track of, but the author was so thorough in exploring each character’s past and personality that the characters came to life. The author has a great talent for describing situations, locations, and creatures so that no matter how fantastical, they seem real.

The Time travel aspect interests me, and in Through the Triangle the author uses families from different times who have to adjust to the new time for which they have arrived. These situations along with non-stop thrills and action make this an outstanding read. I hope a sequel is in the works.
