History of the Timelaws by Marise Ghorayeb
Elizabeth is a teenage girl who runs a universe-wide sector of a military-like, magical society she calls ‘Dark’. She is the type of girl who can handle herself in a fight: fist, knife, or magical. She learned the first two forms of combat growing up in a rough neighborhood with her two older brothers. Their parents passed away three years ago, in 1979, leaving Elizabeth to inherit her father’s rank.
Now, to save her friends, her parents, her brothers and herself, Elizabeth needs to figure out how to deal with a timeline that’s in constant flux. Not an easy task when your memory keeps changing along with your own past.
To make matters worse, her oldest brother, who doesn’t know magic exists, starts to suspect that Elizabeth’s keeping secrets from him

I wont go further into the plot as I don't want to give anything away and spoil anyone's reading. Basically the book is about the "Timelaws", so has time travelling battles against futuristic wizards as well as present day things happening. Its quite complicated to try to explain. The chapters jump from past, present , future times but once you get used to the jumping about it is a good read. The author makes you care about the main character and her family etc, you end up caring about the outcome and really wanting to read on and on to find out what happens.Although i read fantasy this isn't the usual type of book I read but I did honestly enjoy it. There were a few typos in book but nothing major. I think i read somewhere that there was a story/novella before this book so would be interested to read that, as i would be interested to read any further adventures.
