    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Following on from One Word Kill, we find Nick at 16, studying at Cambridge university. After fighting cancer, a crazy psychopath with a penchant for machetes, and first love, he?s hoping to settle down and sort out ...

    Limited Wish, book two of the Impossible Times trilogy, is a highly-enjoyable and heady sci-fi adventure with heavy emotional beats. Although this book takes a bit longer than One Word Kill to have its full scope be revealed, the mind-bending paths that we?re being led through become...

    A perfectly awesome time-travel tale served up on a platter of fun D&D mirroring, future-knowledge angst, time-ghosts, paradox, and mathematical hijinx that does more than skirt the edges of a heist novel. Again. But don't worry! While this may have a lot of the same elements...

    'The universe is trying to kill you.' O o f this series is really putting me through the wringer!! First off it made my head hurt, and now it's making my heart hurt, too. Unfair, bro. At least I'm finally starting to get a tiny grasp on the physics and quantum theories that ar...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/06/15/... I?m loving the quick release schedule for these books, because it meant I was able to jump right into Limited Wish almost immediately after finishing One Word Kill and I was definitely looking forward to co...

    Leave it to Mark Lawrence to write a second book in a trilogy that is even better than the first! I love how every series is of his is so unique, a wonderful mix of humor, heart, and action. The universe is trying to kill you. Just when Nick didn't think his life could get any m...

    This is the second book of a trilogy about time-travelling maths prodigy Nick Hayes and his Dungeons & Dragons playing friends. I read the first, One Word Kill, very recently which meant the plot and characters were all fresh, although the author helpfully includes a quick recap at...

    A time travel story with a D&D game at it heart. Nick and his friend are again visited by time travelers. There is a problem with Nicks Timeline and there are two possible futures with two women who both are out of Nick's social league. Innovating plot, great characters and one of ...

    More time travel craziness mixed with a little less D&D and a little more paradox. Final review (a joint review with Kat Hooper at FanLit) first posted on Fantasy Literature: As Limited Wish begins, Nick Hayes, the 16-year-old math genius that we met in One Word Kill (you need ...

    3.5 "Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world" Stars Limited Wish wasn?t quite as enjoyable to me as One Word Kill but it still carries some of the same magic I found in the first book. There is a paradox as two possible time lines are too ...

    ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I love that I got to read One Word Kill and Limited Wish so close together. I have no idea how I'm going to survive the wait until November to read Dispel Illusion. This trilogy is a masterpiece. And I'm saying that having...

    LIMITED WISH was both a little bit deja vue, though slightly out of alignment from the first book, and also.. way more timey wimey wibbly wobbly than book one. We have converging timelines, paradoxes, choices, divergences.. honestly I didn't understand half of it. At least half of it. ...

    How much did I like One Word Kill? Enough that I actually paid real money to get a copy of Limited Wish. And yes, the third one Dispel Illusion has been ordered. I love puzzles. And most books that involve time travel are something of a puzzle for me, as I handle the story and turn ...

    I didn't think it was possible but Mr. Lawrence topped the first book. The weaving of timelines is done to perfection. As is always the case, his prose is second to none. Bring on book three! I received this via Netgalley and I can't wait for the hardcover to come in so I can add it...

    Many thanks to Publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read the ARC ahead of the release! Limited Wish is a fine story, it pulls you in from the first page and keeps you on the edge of your seat as a good thriller should. It is a perfect follow-up to One Word Kill and shares...

    The paradox A great book, and great continuation of the story. I am not a great fan of time travel books, but I think this is one of the stories that got things right. Since the last story a lit has happened. Nick is looking to make his mark on the world, but also looking to fulf...

    What a wild ride! 'Limited Wish' was full of adventure, mystery and adrenaline! 'Limited Wish' hooked me in hard and fast from the very first page, in fact I think I even enjoyed it more than its predecessor, 'One Word Kill,' which I also loved. Nick's story continued, and not conte...

    I'm pleasantly surprised in Mark's latest foray into slice of life sci-fi! Nick is a kind of amalgamation of Jorg, Jalan and Nona, a conflicted character with a huge burden, surrounded by hardship, dealing with cancer, and being a once in a generation math super genius. Like all...

    I'm pretty sure Mark Lawrence wrote these books just to let us know that he has figured out time traveling or is very close to doing so. I was nervous coming into this book because I loved the first book so much I was worried this one might not live up to it. I'm glad to say that my fe...
