From the Author

Ever since he arrived on the scene, fans of "Out of Time" have been asking for more Jack Wells. Now, Jack's not shy and I'm thrilled to announce he has his very own series, "Saving Time." In 1960s Las Vegas, Jack is dealt a deadly hand in Book 1, JACKS ARE WILD -- good thing, Simon and Elizabeth are there to help. Jacks Are Wild is available now:

We catch up with Simon and Elizabeth a few months after they return from New York where they are semi-living with each other and very much in love. Once again they will be transported back in time, this time to San Francisco a few days before the great earthquake. Charged with the deed of preventing the death of a member of the council, Simon and Elizabeth once again meet a number of colorful characters and get into and out of trouble.

Ms. Martin once again takes us off in a grand adventure to another time and place, introducing us to interesting people and exciting times. San Francisco of 1907 plays a strong part in this installment of Simon and Elizabeth's adventures and it was fun to see the city in that time frame. What an exciting time to live, Ms. Martin brings it to life beautifully and I really felt like I was there.

Simon is the same old Simon, stodgy and very English; he is madly in love with Elizabeth and doesn't know how to deal with this new relationship thing. It was fun to watch him bumble through and make mistakes, my heart just wept for him at times. He does have a clever mind and uses it very well, before he travels back in time and while in 1907. I think he would be a good fellow to have around in a pinch and he certainly isn't bad on the eyes. Elizabeth is the opposite of Simon and so good for him, she loves him but understands she has to stand on her own. She has a way of getting herself into to trouble and, bless her heart, she attracts some of the strangest people. I really enjoyed her exploits and watching her get herself out of the spots she got herself in to. She and Simon are so different from each other but somehow make it work.

First let me say that I thought Out of Time was a great book. When the Walls Fell is even better. Honestly.

Even though we got to spend a lot of time with Elizabeth in OoT, I feel like this book showed us her character even more. Loved the time period, loved the supporting cast, loved the train of surprise that ran over me on a couple of occasions; I loved it all.

Even the smallest of characters were given enough life that I can still see their image in my mind. Ms. Martin did an incredible job with this, and even though WtWF just came out, I'm going to beg for the next one soon. Please?

After reading the first book "Out of Time", I was anxiously awaiting the second. I was not disappointed. Not only do we have two wonderful lead characters Simon and Elizabeth, the secondary characters were full of personality and come to life on the pages. The romance and excitement is still there with Simon and Elizabeth, and I don't see it changing anytime soon. The story itself pulled me and I felt like I was experiencing a major event toward the end of the book (I will not mention what that is). I simply loved this book and look forward to the third in the series.

When the Walls Fell and Martin's previous in the series, Out of Time, are those rare great finds in books that take you away completely, total immersion into the adventures of Professor Cross and Elizabeth West.

Time travel is the interesting mode of transport for these two characters in the series, this time taking the two back to San Francisco just days before the great earthquake of 1906.

What fascinates more than time travelling or the 1906 locale is the relationship between Cross and West. The "push-me-pull-me" give and take of their growing love affair, the self-doubts both have about risking falling in love once more, the internal self-critiques as they struggle along, and the joyous release both find when they cast doubts aside and follow their hearts rings so true.

The intimate scenes are beautifully written, and in a class by themselves in popular literature.

Adventure, Sci Fi time travel, romance in the most adult and mature sense of the word--When the Walls Fell has it all.

Cross, the crusty professor and his beautiful and feisty assistant Elizabeth West are two characters who will be forever welcome into my days and onto my Kindle.

When the Walls Fell is a fun and frothy romp that I think will satisfy many readers. But, personally, I felt like it could have delivered more substance.

In this second book in the Out of Time series, Professor Simon Cross and Elizabeth West journey to San Francisco just days before the great quake. A member of The Council for Temporal Studies, Charles Graham, has disappeared from the timeline and the Council recruits Elizabeth to find out who killed his great-great grandfather in 1906. They also ominously hint that if the timeline isn't corrected, Simon could end up never having been born.

My first thought was that the Council has made anything but an air-tight case. It makes very little sense that Simon would disappear. Second, even if they go separately, why on earth wouldn't Simon ask just one question: Where is Elizabeth being sent? Logic is out the window and lots of fluffy filler is in. For instance:

Chapters 6 and 7: They arrive in San Francisco. Very little info of importance to the plot.
Chapter 8: Simon joins a gentleman's club and Elizabeth goes for an automobile ride with Max.
Chapter 9: Max introduces Elizabeth to Graham and she saves him from a tomato.
Chapter 10: Elizabeth goes to an afternoon banquet at which nothing happens. That night, Simon goes to a party at which nothing happens.
Chapter 11: Simon is again at the men's club. He sees Elizabeth's photo in the newspaper.
Chapter 12: They're reunited, go to his hotel and fool around until sundown.
Chapter 13: They go to dinner with Max. Simon throws pebbles at her bedroom window and Gerald is disapproving.
Chapter 14, 3 days left: Elizabeth barges in on Gerald and sees his amputated leg.
