Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.
Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.
Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

The whole package
Fantasy, history, action, a bit of romance. A great book... Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
The protagonist is an intrepid hero who lands on her feet despite unexpected troubles and her own doubts and free-runs her way through this story. I was hooked from the first page and couldn’t put it down. I bet you won’t be able to either.
The author April White does a remarkable job of blending a mystery and love store together. I found this book a great read for either a teenage or adult reader
