The fantastical universe that the author opens is different from anything else and can’t be compared. I recommend that you read this book and discover it for yourself. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Amazon Review.

This book is wonderful and I really enjoyed the story and the characters. The time-travelling aspect is well developed as well as setting up the premise for the next books in the series. The villain is well crafted to appear charming at first blindsiding me. I look forward to reading the next books in the series!

Read the Review.

The journey that their friendships go on, as well and the actual journeys in the story are gripping and made this book one that we didn't want to put down, with a great cliffhanger at the end - we were so pleased it's not the end of the story just the book!

The story itself was fun, creative, and entertaining. It was well written and easily held my interest throughout the tale. And for anyone worried that this book was just one big history lesson, worry not. There was much more to this tale than just a couple of short trips into the past.
