Jace Vega has finally landed her dream job working for an up-and-coming tech firm called Omnibus. But after she receives a mysterious message from her future self, Jace is forced to question everything she thought she knew.

Soon Jace and her old friend Corey are racing to piece together the clues that will keep Omnibus from destroying everything—including their past.

Fast-paced and suspenseful, Eruption is a guaranteed page-turner that will keep you guessing till the very last page.


Jace Vega likes to go on morning runs. On one of these runs, Jace comes across a tablet, left alone on the grass. She notices it has the Omnibus logo, which is the company she works. She decides to take it with her and show it to someone at work. When she’s at home, and says her name while on a phone call, the tablet recognizes her voice and it turns on. Later on, she starts going through the files and notices a picture where she is with a man named Corey and she sets out to find him and she does find him. They both start to figure out why the tablet has a picture of them together and strange images that look like a revolution and destruction happened. In another image, they find a picture of themselves and Damien, the son of Victor Trent who is the owner of of Omnibus.

I don’t know how to begin explaining Eruption without giving anything away. The first four chapters were kind of dragging for me, the reason being that there wasn’t much dialogue, mostly focusing on the MC’s thoughts. I skimmed through a few paragraphs because it really felt boring to me. The story starts picking up the pace a bit after Corey and Jace figure something out. The images would have time stamps but it wasn’t your average type of time stamps. They were codes that I actually found fascinating because they needed a certain book in order to figure out these codes.

The story keeps on going of how Jace and Corey try to figure out why they have this tablet and why did their future selves sent it back to them. All the while, Jace gets offered the position of being the assistant to Damien and Jace can’t help the butterflies she gets in her stomach when she is with Damien.

The part I really found amazing was that Corey and Jace would communicate through INSTAGRAM. Corey would post a picture and the caption was somehow related to whatever they needed to find. It was well-thought and now I read into everything I see on Instagram…yeah.

For being a debut novel, I think it was well-written with a good story-line. I really would have preferred if the story had more action to it because when I went into it, that’s what I was expecting. Still, it was a good story that I think many readers will enjoy 🙂

About Adrienne Quintana

Adrienne Quintana is the second of nine children born to professional oil artist, John Horejs, and his wife and business partner, Elaine. She spent her early years playing on the banks of the Snake River in southern Idaho while her father built a geodesic dome house. When the family wasn’t traveling around the country to art shows, Adrienne spent many happy hours reading in her unfinished, tent-like bedroom. Love of reading soon blossomed into a desire to write. If the family’s antiquated computer could be resurrected, a collection of short stories involving local characters and their epic battles with fire-breathing dragons would be sure to entertain.

After completing high school via correspondence, Adrienne studied Music Education at Mesa Community College. She took an 18 month break to serve a church mission in Montreal, Canada, where she gained invaluable life experiences and a few pounds from the local delicacies. After the completion of her mission and a month abroad in Europe, Adrienne moved to Utah with the intention of continuing her education at Brigham Young University, but these plans were short-lived when she met her husband-to-be while working at an investment company. Soon after their marriage, the Quintanas packed up and moved to Minnesota, where Adrienne worked while her husband earned a Law degree.

After four children and a move to Arizona, Adrienne completed her Bachelors of Science and Communication at the University of Phoenix. In the throes of housekeeping, potty-training, and carpooling, Adrienne discovered that she could find time to accomplish her goals—often in the quiet hours after the children were in bed. Since her graduation in 2012, those quiet moments have been used to fulfill a life-long dream of becoming a writer.
