Seventeen-year-old Clocker, Saira Elian is back on the run and being hunted by Mongers. The Descendants of War are amassing power in the 21st century, bent on controlling all the Immortal Descendants. Their attempt to kidnap Saira, a rare Descendant of Time and Nature, reveals just how brazen they’ve become. Archer, the vampire who has loved Saira for over a century, is willing to risk everything to protect her.
When a horrific vision reveals Ringo, thief and loyal companion from 1888, being tortured at the hands of the bloodthirsty Bishop Wilder in a Renaissance prison, Saira and Archer realize there has been a ripple in the river of Time, and they must travel to 1554 to find its source and save their friend. Their rescue mission lures them to the Tower of London, site of the most notorious executions in history, where they encounter the mysterious Lady Elizabeth who is confronting a terrible fate of her own.
The time-traveler, the vampire, and the thief will need all of their skills and ingenuity as they race against time to steal a document that could change the course of history and put the Immortal Descendants at the mercy of the Mongers. Can they stop a madman bent on collecting the blood of history’s most powerful Seer before the executioner’s axe falls?

April White knows how to blend the genres... Fantasy, history, action, mystery, romance. This series has it all.
Action and More
The books of which there are two are very well written. The characters are interesting. I love Saira and Archer but Ringo is my favorite. He funny, lovable and brotherly. I love the history included in the stories and even literary license to add to reality. I look forward to the next book in the series. Time travel is interesting concept even if just for the imagination!
I was interested it the stories and what would happen next it was hard to put the books down to eat and sleep. I read a lot of books but my interest isn't always held to want to peak at the end. With both books I kept reading to not miss a detail.
Please Ms. White write another to continue the series.
