Red, White, and the Blues (Chronos Origins Book 2) Kindle Edition
The United States’ past is hijacked in a time-warping adventure of future interdimensional, high-risk games by the bestselling author of the CHRONOS series.
History is turned inside out when off-world travelers challenge Tyson Reyes and Madi Grace to a real-life game of Temporal Dilemma. Three rounds from the opponents and Hitler takes Europe, Pearl Harbor never happens, a fascist cloud hangs over the postwar United States, and CHRONOS itself is erased from existence.
Now Tyson, Madi, and a team of seasoned players must make their moves—in 1930s New York. Jazz and the blues waft from Village clubs. The World’s Fair draws assassins. Madison Square Garden hosts Nazis. And the Manhattan Project never gets off the ground.
Tyson and Madi have only three days to undo the strategy that changed the tides of war and the fate of the world. A surprise survivor from CHRONOS could be their best hope for flipping the timeline. If he’s on their side. But can they risk trusting him when the past, the future, and the lives of millions hang in the balance?
“Fans of time-travel stories will appreciate the historical detail and characters’ ingenuity.” —Publishers Weekly

In book one of the series, Now, Then and Everywhen, we are introduced to two time traveling historians – Madison Grace and Tyson Reyes. We find out that Madison is a descendant of Kate and Trey from the original CHRONOS series. A massive time shift occurs while Tyson is in 1965. Madison and Tyson’s paths eventually cross and they have to keep further events from occurring and changing the past they know.
Red, White and the Blues continues the narrative of the consequences from Now, Then and Everywhen. Told from several POV, after the off world team executes their three moves, Hilter takes Europe, Pearl Harbor does not happen and CHRONOS doesn’t exist! It is up to Madison, Tyson with the help of some friends to choose, research and make their 3 moves in an effort to reset history and restore the original timeline to the best of their abilities.
While this book is long, it is rich with detail of historical events. If you are a history buff or just enjoy reading about history, you should read this series! I enjoy the continued development of the characters and their story lines. While, I have read the original series, enough backstory is provided for you to follow the storyline without having read the original series.
I am an avid reader of Rysa Walker’s work and her latest novel does not disappoint. It is full of twists and turns, mystery, suspense, revisiting characters from the original series and so much more! Rysa’s story telling style pulls you in and takes you down a road where you do not want to put the book down! If you enjoy reading alternate history, time travel, science fiction and mystery, then I suggest you read the CHRONOS Origins series.
Let me explain why. Ms. Walker does an outstanding job of developing the characters throughout her books. Not spoiler - it is about time travel, so some of the characters in the series change when the timeline changes. I really enjoyed observing the impact of small changes to both history and character development as the story progresses.
I am always impressed at the historical details in each story. The mood, environment and vibe of the various periods really come to life. As I looked up some of the real life incidents, I was amazed at how much of the descriptions were actually accurate. I ended up reading in depth about them after-the-fact to better understand what really happened.
Just a good series!

However, there are long passages that contribute nothing to the overall plot; most of these are of a political nature and are extremely tedious. They also focus on American politics and history so are of even less interest to those readers who do not live in the USA.
The ending is also rather weak as it is ambiguous at best so rather unsatisfying. Perhaps this is deliberate to allow for a sequel but it would have been nice to have some positive outcomes for the characters' relationships.
This book is as good as the first!
I really don't want to say too much about this book, for fear of giving away spoilers, but it is mind-bending, and incredibly well-written. If you haven't read the first book, read that first, just so you can jump right into this one without too much hesitancy. I have not yet read any of the Chronos Files series, but have added them to my wishlist, as I know once I start reading them, I won't be able to put them down.
