Once the cat’s out of the bag, the plot unfolds rather quickly; so I won’t say much more about the story itself, but I really did love it. The author’s writing is beautiful, the characters are incredibly lovable, and the details and setting are beyond captivating. I loved the bits of history intertwined with the story as well. It’s too bad time travel isn’t real for us readers, because I don’t know how I’m going to wait for the sequel to this amazing story!
For me, there was some predictability in where the storyline was headed, as well as in certain character traits; but sometimes even when we know where we’re going, if we have an awesome traveling companion and great scenery… the trip is still a lot of fun. ;)
I enjoyed the author’s writing, especially her use of imagery. This book regales us with ley lines, Tesla, ancient artifacts, time travel, eidetic memories, and details that make me so very grateful to live in a century with electricity and indoor plumbing (not to mention a bouquet of much lovelier smells than our poor characters endure). This was a fun buddy-read with my daughter, and I know without a doubt that we’ll be grabbing the sequel for more!
Huge thanks to the publisher for sending us a copy of this book in exchange for our honest review.
