The tale is told from the POV of protagonist seventeen year old Madison Lambourne. Madison is traveling with her senior class to London. She meets Johnny DeVere at the Heathrow airport. Johnny calls her Madeline and appears to know her. She finds a torn note that falls from his pocket. It is written on old paper and says, "In time you will forgive me. I will be waiting for you at..." The handwriting is hers. This encounter will test all that Madison knows and prove her braver then even she imagined.
The story centers on the Tower of London, past tragedies and the keepers of the River of Time. Madison and Johnny travel back in time, to right wrongs and protect the river of time. The romance between Johnny and Madison is sweet, romantic and youthful. Madison is independent and takes charge, sometimes at her own peril. Johnny is dark, world-wise and obviously taken with Madison.
I have to mention the cover. I am not a fan, and feel it doesn't do the wonderful tale that lies within justice. I would have liked to have seen Madison running from the Tower in the lovely period dress she wore or the image of Johnny(as seen on author's website) in black and white. The old adage "never judge a book by its cover" applies here. I would have walked right by this novel. I am so guilty of being drawn to a book by its cover and then reading the synopsis.Read more ›
A historical adventure of epic proportion which describes the medieval period perfectly, with the fear of the tower and many people living in poverty, through the book you can sense the smells and fears in London 1483.
On the journey our heroine discovers the full facts of the mysterious (and must say very good looking) figure Johnny De Vere and the secrets of how he has kept his tender age of 21. Also discovering the king has locked up his two illegitimate sons to be executed. Madison is horrified, can she save them? Will Johnny help her as he is "the guardian of the river of time" which preserves history as it is.
A story for both male and female readers, the adventures, historical facts and of course romance will keep the reader wanting to turn the pages. There is not many stories that I did not want to end but this was one!
Book 1-Time Travel/Vampire Series
"I'm seventeen and he's twenty-one. That's okay...isn't it? He drives a Lamborghini. So what? He was born in 1462. Uh-oh. He seeks revenge, but there is one person standing in his way. Me."
On a high school trip to London, Madison Lambourne starts out on the wrong foot and things go from bad to worse. She forgets her jacket on the plane and ends up losing her group. While waiting for her luggage she meets a handsome young man who mistakes her for someone else named Madeline. After Mrs. Bertorelli finds her and they get her luggage...thanks to the handsome man...she retrieves a note he dropped. An old note written in her own handwriting.
As her class tours London, Maddie is caught into a deeper mystery. She meets Johnny De Vere, the airport hunk, at the Tower of London. He takes her different places and seems to think she should feel as if she had been there before. She starts finding Johnny a bit scary, although still hunky. Suddenly Maddie finds herself time traveling to 1483 London. A time where two young boys are going to be murdered because they are a threat to the new king. She also learns that vampires do exist and she seems to be falling for one.
This is a hard-to-put-down type book. Full of adventure, romance and rich history. Johnny and the other Patrons may be vampires but it is not focused on that alone. You travel back and "see" the styles and looks of London. In Lake Havasu, Arizona you can see the London Bridge. I recently did see it and read the history of some of the be-headings. When running through 1483 London with Maddie and Johnny it was neat to "see" the bridge and unfortunately even a few of those heads. I personally enjoyed this book and look forward to the next books in this series.
