I really enjoyed this fantasy novel and plan to read the rest of the series. Although it deals with time travel, it has nothing to do with machines. Time is more like an entity that pulls certain people to become immortal Timeless ones. It’s a very creative take on time travel.
The author didn’t give the story away with too many hints, so the mystery and intrigue kept me going. Julia has no memory of her past, and when strange beings begin to enter her life, she desperately searches for answers. It kept me hooked, as I wanted to know more. Then it ended in a bang–lots of action.
Since this is a young adult read, I’m more conservative when it comes to a clean rating, and I give this one a thumbs up. No cursing, and the romance is sweet. The main character is not a spoiled or rude teenager acting like a brat. She has a great relationship with her foster mother and foster sister, and I liked her personality. It’s a solid clean read.
As for the negatives, there really wasn’t much. I can only think of two things that I shook my head at. One has to do with an accent the characters should have had when I learned where they were from. The other has to do with Simon’s secrecy and his saving the life of a child without being seen. Overall, those two things didn’t take too much away from the story, and I’m giving it four stars for creativity, a solid plot, likable characters, keeping it clean, and keeping me interested. Oh, and I love the covers!
Julia is a great heroine. Since no one can tell her anything (either they don’t know or are physically incapable of it), she has to figure out most of it on her own. I really liked Julia because she actually did things. She wanted answers, she sought them no matter how difficult or scary it would be for her. She wanted someone’s life to be saved, she tried to save it herself. She didn’t just sit back and let others do everything for her while she watched and hoped.
I liked Simon for the most part. He was a sweet person, and it was obvious he really loved Julia. He was always there to offer help and provide it when needed, but he also trusted Julia’s judgement and let her take the reins when that was the best choice. There were a couple of times when his emotions darkened to slightly scary levels, but it was never directed at her or anyone undeserving of them. I sense depths within him, and I hope they will be explored further.
The other two characters that really caught my attention were Frank and Isabel. We don’t know much about them at this point, but I just know there’s a back-story there. I really REALLY hope we get to hear it.
Overall, this was fantastic. I highly recommend it. Now excuse me while I go off and buy all of the author’s other books.
Julia remembers nothing of her life until she is left on the porch of her foster mother, Nancy's house. There she meets her foster sister, Monica, who is a friend and helps Julia "fit in" in high school, Julia's speech is out dated and she does not know how to use phones, cell phones and computers.
What if you found out you came from a different time and might be able to go back and change what happened to you in a very famous disaster?
Two boys she met in school are not what they seem, Frank. asks her to a dance but turns out that he wants to send her back, the other, Simon is from her past but can't tell her anything to help her.
I would highly recommend the book it's also free for a short time on Amazon!
Holly Hook is a brilliant writer and I can't wait to read more of her novels, and more of the Timeless series.
