Excerpt from Premonition #teasertuesday #suspense

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

I recently picked up Premonition: A Time-Travel Suspense Novel (City of God Book 2) by R.S. Ingermanson. I had not read book 1 of the series, I just jumped straight in with Book 2. A couple of young people, one Jewish, one Christian, have gone through a wormhole to Jerusalem in the years following the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and cannot get home. They get caught up in temple intrigue… I’m not sure what the results will be. I gather book 1 involved Saul of Tarsus/St. Paul.

As an aside, R.S. Ingermanson is known as the Snowflake Guy, he teaches the Snowflake Method for novel writing, which I have found very helpful in the past! Great for NaNoWriMo if you’re going to join in this year!

Shmuel felt righteous anger rising in his heart. The men of violence would come soon, as they had come once for Rabban Yeshua. That was many years ago, even before the birth of Shmuel.

city-of-godWhat If …?


What if you were studying for your Ph.D. in archaeology and somehow got trapped in first-century Jerusalem after a controversial physics experiment went horribly wrong?

What if you knew from your history books that a kind and decent man was going to be murdered by the powers-that-be, all because of stupid politics?

What if you could prevent the murder, but you knew it might endanger the person you loved most in the world?

It’s A.D. 57 and Rivka Meyers desperately wants to go home, but her husband Ari is a physicist, and he says they’re stuck in the first century. He also says that the laws of physics say Rivka can’t change history. Rivka knows he’s wrong, and she’s going to prove it—by saving James the brother of Jesus from being murdered by the evil high priest.

 

About The Book


Premonition is a time-travel suspense novel that mixes science, history, religion, romance, and adventure. It’s about becoming the person you were meant to be. It’s about learning to accept harsh reality when you’d really rather quit and go home. It’s about being a badass fighter for justice, even when you’re fresh out of easy answers to hard questions.

Premonition won the 2004 Carol award for best Christian historical novel.

Premonition will take you on a wretched, miserable, dangerous vacation through the filthy, bandit-ridden streets of first-century Jerusalem.

Premonition is the second novel in the City of God series:
Book 1: Transgression (A.D. 57)
Book 2: Premonition (A.D. 57-62)
Book 3: Retribution (A.D. 62-66)R.S. Ingermanson, Premonition: A Time-Travel Suspense Novel (City of God Book 2)

  1. Now this is a very different premise for time travel. I think I’d enjoy it.
    Here is my TT – http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/10/07/teaser-tuesdays-84-the-death-of-death/

  2. Sounds like an interesting premise full of possibilities for conflict. I’d read this story.
