*I listened to this story for my own enjoyment.

My Thoughts and Summary:
Casey has been called to the stand as a witness to the crime planned by The Old Ones (on what they did in Season 1). She's made a deal, a pardon of all her crimes for the testimony. However, what Casey has to share today is more than her case against The Old Ones, and more about her ventures of how she's saved the Universe, once again, with the time machine... So the tale begins, with Casey doing what she can't resist and does best, stealing the time machine.

This is Casey's story since the end of the first season. She's spent time with Feeblo but she can't resist the urge she feels when it comes to the time machine. Her need for adventure and curiosity for the unknown spark. Time travel is something she just can not pass up. She has to take it for a spin, and maybe along the way set up her past to make her rich now. But in the case of doing that... oh my. The con-artist in her tries to shine, but things twist and turn on her faster than she can keep up. All I have to say is, thank goodness for the time machine...


Wow, things get complicated and confusing when messing with the time line. There is a constant circle that exists and once you are jumping around enough, you can 'predict' that something will happen. Of course you have to make it happen at some point, in some fashion. But with a time machine! Yes, it's all possible. Confused yet? lol.

It's a fun story with Casey and her adventures. It does start to get convoluted but works itself out as well. I enjoyed Casey's personality, the free spirit she is. This book felt more her looking for trouble than blindly stumbling into it like I felt in the first book. But just when I thought things might be bland... episode 5 happens. Things have taken a deeper turn and future Casey is involved. I became beyond curious here.

Casey even makes a (unwanted) visit to the past, a distant past, that becomes all too neat to listen too. We see a piece of the past that is *actually* connected to time travel! Well, in Casey's world it is. ;)

It all works out in the end. All your explanations are given. And seems maybe Casey might have learned a thing or two... Nah. That can't be! lol.

These episodes are a tad longer than those of the first season, but still short. These are closer to 20 minutes as the first book were about 15 minutes. And there is only 10 episodes again as well.
