In LIEU by Barry Dean
Librarian, thief, or time-cop? Sometimes, not even those concerned can tell the difference - particularly when time-travel is involved, and things happen in order, out of order, and simultaneously at different times. Welcome to the time travelling world of L.I.E.U. A future world where nothing is quite as it seems.

I rather enjoyed this mind bending time travel book. It was well done and quite unique. As someone who reads a LOT of time travel, that's saying something.
This book takes you on a wild ride. From the start you are sent on a journey and are never sure when or where our MCs are. Some of the parts of the book are quick and precise, while other parts are more drawn out and detailed. The book revolves around two MCs, Holly and Cam as they go on their own journey through time.
Holly is recruited to be a librarian of some special books, but I say what they are, because that is part of the plot. They are very special books, very unique ones, none Holly has heard of before, yet is very important to her life. Holly and her assistants travel through time to get or do what is needed.
Time moves back and forth through this book. One minute is the past and one minute it's the future. In addition to the MCs there's a rather interesting fellow along for most of the journey. He's inception is rather cool and a lovely touch to the book.
It's hard to say too much about the book without giving too much away. It's just something that should be read without any preconceived notions going in. If you are a fan of of time travel, I do recommend this book. It's different and unique, unlike many other time travel books out there. The characters are lovable and quirky, not without some flaws. They make the book feel genuine. Go read it, you won't regret it!

Are you prepared to have your mind twisted like a pretzel with time paradoxes, events happening out of order, effects preceding causes? If so, then set yourself right down and read In L.I.E.U. and have your fears unconfirmed. Supposedly the tale of Holly Penworthy, it is more the tale of Cameliel Cameron, commonly known as Cam, who helps recruit Holly as the Librarian in 1960. but that occurs after Holly has recruited him as Assistant Librarian in 2019. And time keeps getting twisted for poor Cam and his cartooning with trips to the future, the past and into Romance with Holly's granddaughter Petra. This is a fun ride that ends with enough plot hints that another adventure for some of the characters may issue out of the Time-Continuum in our future. I for one will be on the lookout for such an occurrence.
There's No Place Like Hell by Janis Hill
Stephanie Anders, Protector of Souls, has met her hardest task yet: saving the soul of the man who ruined her life and ended her marriage. Simon was her ex-husband's best friend and someone who made her life a living hell. However, Simon has managed to sell his soul and needs her help to get it back, and he's literally sending her to hell to get it. Unfortunately as the Protector of Souls Stephanie can't refuse the task. There’s just two problems: how does she get there, and then how does she get out again before she becomes a demon?

But there have been dire warnings of a new breed of predator in the skies and the Kun, leader of the Feathers, has deployed his human captives to fortify the settlement's defences.
