So why doesn't Eli Teague want to leave?
Not that he'd ever admit it, but maybe he's been waiting - waiting for the traveler to come back. The one who's roared into his life twice before, pausing just long enough to drop tantalizing clues before disappearing in a cloud of gunfire and a squeal of tires. The one who's a walking anachronism, with her tricorne hat, flintlock rifle, and steampunked Model A Ford.
The one who's being pursued by...something.
So when the mysterious traveler finally reappears, Eli's determined that this time, he's going to get some answers. But his hunt soon yields far more than he bargained for, plunging him headlong into a dizzying world full of competing factions and figures straight out of legend.
To make sense of the mystery at its heart, he must embark on a breakneck chase across the country and through two centuries of history - with nothing less than America's past, present, and future at stake.

Well worth a listen, but one thing bothered me...
Not really a spoiler but I am going to mention some things from the book, so best say SPOILER ALERT just in case.
Cars run on water by separating it into hydrogen and oxygen with a catalyst, throwing away the oxygen and burning the hydrogen.
Perhaps a useful plot tool, but burning hydrogen combines it with oxygen to give you...water. So you would never run out of water as it comes out the exhaust, and you are also getting energy by magic. Water in, same water out..
That said, I happily accepted time travel and everything else with 'certainty', so best not to get hung up on it!

The American Dream
I love the idea of the American dream and that the founder fathers of America had a grand plan. This book gripped me from start to finish. Gutted to have finished the book but would love a Koturoverse universe book in the near future. Special mention for Ray Porter who narrated the book beautifully.

I tried SO hard, I really did!
I normally LOVE Peter Clines. I have read and recommended many of his books, so when I heard there was a new one, I was thrilled.
Cut to my bewilderment as I listened to a book led by a completely uninteresting lead, full of useless characters, with a plot that, while imaginative simply turned out to be useless and dumb.
I'm sad. I adore Ray Porter's voice, and that is the only way I made it to the end of this very very pointless book.
My advice, save a credit and read one of his older works.

Confusing time travel entry
I only listened to this audiobook once, so I may have missed some important key piece of information that would have made the rest of the book actually interesting. But I doubt it. It reminds me a little bit of Field of Dreams where "the voice" tells Kevin Costner to drive to Boston to find James Earl Jones, and then "the voice" tells both of them to go to Minnesota to find Burt Lancaster, but it turns out they need the Burt Lancaster from 40 years ago when he was a young aspiring base ball player, and eventually they find both old Burt and young Burt. But Field of Dreams WORKS. It is playful and fantastical but also compelling and inspiring. Paradox Bound is none of those things. It is just a confusing mess, with only the very slightest touch to the 14/Fold universe.
I have listened to 14 and The Fold numerous times, happily going wherever the story took me, enjoying every listen and every voice by the talented Ray Porter. But every writer can have a stumble, and you do him no favor if you slather him with undeserved praise based on his past work instead of honest criticism of the current book. I am going to give this book one more try, but if it doesn't get a whole lot better the second time around, it's going to get returned.
