(Books!) “Final Fantasy XIII-2” and “Erasing Time” by CJ Hill

So I’ve decided to add books that give me a distinct feeling for a video game or anime or something not in book form basically!
I thought it was a sensible addition to the blog ^^

Today will be, as the title says, FFXIII-2 in comparison to the YA sci-fi “Erasing Time” by CJ Hill!
I loved this book and would actually play it while exploring Academia or whatever it was I did in FFXIII-2 at the time.
Because I am terrible at quick synopses, here is the one from Goodreads:

When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that’s so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can’t go back home.

The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The same government has implanted tracking devices in the citizens, limiting and examining everything they do. Taylor and Sheridan have to find a way out of the city before the government discovers their secrets. To complicate matters, the moblike Dakine has interest in getting hold of them too. The only way for the girls to elude their pursuers is to put their trust in Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.

Sheridan and Taylor reminded me of Serah and Lightning (respectively)! Sheridan is the friendlier, more emotional one while Taylor is the coldly analytical, slightly arrogant one. (To be honest, I like Lightning and Serah better, but I got quite attached to Sheridan ^^)
Echo is the future boy, used to surviving and making his own way if he has to. He and Sheridan become really close, plus he really reminded me of Noel.

I’m not saying the plot is too similar, but this book also gave me the FFXIII-2 “feeling”…I don’t know how to put that into words, exactly.
Anyway, I just ordered the second book off of Amazon, so you should read it, too! ^.^
