"Well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch--DEPARTURE has non-stop action, an engaging plot and, of course, wheels within wheels."--Diana Gabaldon, bestselling author of Outlander on DEPARTURE --This text refers to the paperback edition.
From the Inside Flap
The world's past and future rest in the hands of five unwitting strangers in this time-traveling, mind-bending speculative thriller from the author of the bestselling Origin Mystery trilogy
En route to London from New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind.
Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they've crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home?
Five passengers seem to hold clues about what's really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Schröder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist.
As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they're letting on--answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past--to save our world . . . or end it.
A wildly inventive and propulsive adventure full of hairpin twists, Departure is a thrilling tale that weaves together power, ambition, fate, memory, and love, from a bold and visionary talent.--Clabe Polk Mystery and Adventure --This text refers to the paperback edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Great pace and good inclusion of many intriguing details into a story line more about human nature than the science which is the mark of an exceptional story and why I gave it 5 stars. I recommend this novel and will add this author to my "like" list :)
It should be read as a light hearted and exiting novella not to be taken too seriously.

I persevered though as I hate to leave a book unfinished.
Sadly the 2 dimensional protagonists and mind boggling theme revealed about halfway through, played havoc with my linear thinking so I gave up at 61%.
However what I did read provided more enjoyment than a 1950's
bus time table or the instructions on the back of a packet of
corn plasters, but only just.
A million copies sold!
My biggest annoyance was that niether Nick or Nicholas seemed to realise there would be a conflict when they got to Harper. Dumb or dumber.
Overall a really entertaining read and my first read by this author which makes me consider buying more of his work.
It would have been nice to fast track a final chapter through a longer time period to close of the story a bit more thoroughly as it seemed rushed.
I am glad this book will become a film, though I would change the title to The Titans as Departure doesn't engage much of the audience and depict the stories interesting aspects. Like the Railcell vs Podway discussion.
Great characters, well written with a satisfying end.
A compelling read that stayed with me afterwards.
However, worth a read and better than most in this genre.
