The Time Machine meet Midnight In Paris

Determined to escape her old life, misfit and student geologist Hallie packs up her life in England and heads to Paris. As a bartender at the notorious Millie's, located next to the Moulin Rouge, she meets Gabriela, who guides her through this strange nocturnal world, and begins to find a new family.

But Millie's is not all that it seems: a bird warns Hallie to get her feathers in order, a mysterious woman shows up claiming to be a chronometrist, and Gabriela is inexplicably unable to leave Paris. Then Hallie discovers a time portal located in the keg room. Over the next nine months, irate customers will be the least of her concerns as she navigates time-faring through the city's turbulent past and future, falling in love, and coming to terms with her own precarious sense of self.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Swift's first novel, with its brilliant near-future vision of an ecologically and socially devastated world and characters who resonate with life and passion, marks her as an author to watch." * Library Journal on Osiris *
"A high-flying novel of love and peril-sheer page-turning entertainment that hooked me with its wit from the first sentence." -- Helen Marshall, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After
"A glittering novel of time travel that you'll want to devour like a mille-feuille in one single bite. I loved it." -- Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award-winning author of A Man Lies Dreaming and Central Station
"Swift's prose is well crafted, and her characters breathe a sort of gap-year-encounters-larger-than-reality hallucinogenic life: vivid, foreign, and faintly exotic to middle-class English girl Hallie." * Locus *
"Paris Adrift is a really cool book. It's Skins meet time travel." * British Fantasy Society *
"Swift (the Osiris Project series) delivers both an unusual take on time travel and solid characters, including a fantastic protagonist." * Publisher's Weekly *
"Paris Adrift is a different type of time travel book, one I hope to see more of, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Paris, the fear for the future, and traveling into the unknown. Be sure to check out the other stops on the tour!"

* utopia-state-of-mind.com *
"As well as being a profound mediation on history and the need to defend democracy, Paris Adrift is also a gorgeous evocation of youth and growing up... a celebration of that particular moment in our lives, when we feel those connections all the more strongly because we know on some level they will come to an end." * fantasy-faction.com *
"An effervescent blend of revisionist history, fantasy and science fiction." * Washington Post *
