A MURDER IN TIME by Julie McElwain narrated by Lucy Rayner introduces us to Kendra Donovan, in this time-traveling 1800s whodunit. At times brilliant, this intriguing tale kept me listening even if this was not my favorite narration.
Last year, THE BOURBON THIEF made my top ten list, so I knew I had to read THE NIGHT MARK by Tiffany Reisz. I chose to listen to the audiobook, and I quickly devoured this on a rainy weekend. Time travel, interesting characters, and fate made THE NIGHT MARK an interesting listen.
Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken is the follow-up novel to the spectacular novel Passenger. This is a duology you’ll want to add to your bookshelf. Wayfarer delivered a captivating tale and satisfying conclusion. Time travel, strong characters, suspense and more await you in this brilliantly written tale.
Rendezvous with Yesterday by Dianne Duvall is the second novel in The Gifted Ones series and this time Duvall adds time travel and humor to the tale as she delighted us with reveals and a swoon-worthy romance as our heroine finds herself in medieval times.
Alexandra Bracken writes magic and I was excited to dive into Passenger the first book in her new time traveling -Passenger trilogy. Suspenseful and engaging we travel the timeline with our heroine and hero as they try to save her mother and stop the ruthless head of Ironwood.
The Drafter is the first book in the Peri Reed Chronicles a new series by Kim Harrison whose Hollows series I adored. The Drafter is a science fiction suspense thriller filled with gadgets and covert agencies set against the backdrop of Detroit in the year 2030. It offers a cat and mouse game where Peri Reed must decide whom to trust.
Time travel, steampunk, Rifters, and fixed points in time! It’s enough to make this Whovian* drool. These are the reasons I agreed to read Extracted the first book of The Lost Imperials series by Sherry D. Ficklin and Tyler Jolley. Gads, this was delightful, and I quickly became caught up in the action and characters. Mini review: original, fast-paced and an excellent start to an exciting new series with limitless possibilities.
Katherine Nicole Jamison never imagined when she took a job at a prestigious auction house for the summer, that one moment of
impulsiveness could change her life forever. When she “borrows” an ancient amulet she inadvertently sets in motion a series of events which results in her waking up in 18th century England, betrothed to an arrogant, self-centered Earl.
I love time traveler books and perhaps my favorite is the Time Traveler’s Wife, so I was very curious about Dana Roquet’s novel Out of the Past. It has an unusual twist in that the couple both live in the present day, but while they sleep they slip into the past lives of those from the same small town in Mahaska County, Iowa. The tale is filled with romance, touching moments, memories of the past and hidden danger. I easily consumed this engaging tale in a single afternoon and look forward to reading the next book in this series.
I received 11/22/63 from Klout as a perk. As a life long fan of Stephen King, I was delighted. I have read all of King’s work and can honestly say I have enjoyed them all. Some of my favorites were the Talisman written with Peter Straub, Lawnmower Man, It, the Gunslinger and my personal favorite the Stand. 11/22/63 is a breathtaking glimpse at one of the most talked about events in US History and the era in which it occurred. King’s research on the subject is evident, as he accurately details the past. Being a fan of sci-fi and Dr. Who, I found the subject of time travel and its effects fascinating.
