I read the first book of this series quite a long time ago.
I hardly remembered what happened in the first book but I knew one thing: I loved it.
This book is no different. LOVE.
Sybella is such a strong character. She endures so much and overcomes everything while retaining who she is. Her family is whacked. WTH is wrong with those men!
Beast, oh Beast. He really steals the show sometimes. I also loved this character. Sybella and he are perfect traveling companions. She plays nursemaid very well.
If you enjoyed the first book you will no doubt love this book too.
If you enjoy historical fantasy you will also enjoy this book. It is full of adventure, historical political issues and alight with humor at perfect times.
I especially loved the author’s closing notes at the end where she justifies some of the terms she used. She also explains the timing of actual historical events that she based this book on. I found it intriguing to learn that such events actually happened!
I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
It is unfortunate that it has some similarities to Twilight and Vampire Diaries but overall, I enjoyed it so much that I forgive these likenesses.
Eila and Raef have one of those instant super natural charged love at first sight things going on.
It’s strong and hot, which is an okay thing but I guess I’ve just read enough contemporary stories lately that I missed the getting to know you background filler. Instead we’re thrown into this strange world of otherworldly creatures with special abilities and oh, my goodness, everyone is trying to kill me situations.
I love the side characters of Ana, Kian and MJ.
I’m off to start the next book of the series! I guess that goes to show that I really did enjoy this book in the end.
One of my most favorite moments is when Augustus, Hazel and Isaac are egging Isaac’s ex-girlfriend’s car. Hazel is feeling a little weary of throwing eggs in the middle of the day and asks Augustus if they should come back when it’s dark. Augustus’ reply is brilliant “It’s always dark to Isaac.”. BRILLIANT.

This book tackles a tough issue: rape.
What I like most about this book is the attitude Grace has.
I love that she never gives up.
I love that even though everyone doubts her story she keeps to her guns.
I love Ian’s character.
I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a compelling contemporary novel.
A welcome surprise from an old favorite series author of mine.
Loved the sci-fi and mystery elements.
Prenna was a good character but Ethan steals the show.
Time travel is an unusual theme for me to grasp. I almost always have a dread feeling when I start a book knowing it’s about time travel. I have a preconceived notion that it is unrealistic. This book, however, was wonderful and easy to believe.
I am not a fan of the ending though. It did not end very well summed up. I wanted a bit more closure to Prenna and Ethan’s relationship as well as the traveler community. I can only assume this will be a series and the remaining information will come in a later installment.
The characters were awesome. I LOVED Harvey. Alice was not the most likable character at times but I saw through the nasty person she tended to be to a few select characters. Did those characters deserve it? Maybe, but should Alice have been using her precious time on revenge? Maybe not so completely.
I loved and hated the layout of the story. Chapters from both Alice and Harvey’s points of view from both “Now” and “Then”. The “Then” chapters being flash backs of before “Now”, which was current time. I found some of the “Then” chapters imposing because I REALLY wanted to know what was going to happen in the “Now”. The “Then” chapters were very important though.
I see this being a standalone. However, I would not be opposed to reading more about Alice’s life.
