By far, one of the best stories I have heard in a long time. Very complex plot, with a love story unfathomable until it's been told. Ends with a cliffhanger, but soon to have a sequel! Absolutely amazing!
I absolutely adored this book. It took me back in time along with Michele Windsor. I highly recommend it.
It was REALLY good!!!!! : D
I thought it was new and refreshing. I'd never read a novel with time-travelling in it before, especially one with a romance happening , and I'd found the idea very intriguing. This was original, which is kinda rare in the YA books today. It was a reprieve from all the books with vampire or werewolf drama in it. I was kinda confused at how it ended, wasn't very satisfied with how it ended. But I guess I'm glad that it ended the way it did. Without that, there probably wouldn't have been a sequel. And I'm happy about that!
