Edy’s writing envelopes you as you become captivated in the scheming plots, romance, powerful, passionate characters that spring to life on each turn of the page while reading Part 2, “Alice ~ Angel of Time.” If you haven’t read “Alice of the Rocks,” please do so, you will you will see how the characters set the pace, for this intriguing book, taking you along to part 2.
Alice ~ Angel of Time, is a title close to my heart. It truly defines how the character Alice/Elisa truly is Claudio’s angel of time who hopefully will be able to rescue him.
The sequel takes us to the year 2029 in Toronto, Canada, Alice’s home, where her heart is pining for her true love Claudio. Her two weeks spent with Claudio in 1512 seemed now a lifetime away. Their worlds are centuries apart, memories of their time together and her journal are all that Alice has left. Ali knew she had to move on, but wondered what became of Count Claudio Moro.
Upon doing some research, Ali finds out the fate of her “knight in shining amour.” She learns who Elisa de Povri truly is. She must get back to Renaissance Italy!! But how? The past is where she must go, living again as Elisa hoping it isn’t too late. But first, she must convince her parents that she needs to return to Italy.
Her path will have many twists and turns. Will the chamber still work? If it does will she be able to return to present day? Journey along with Alice and Claudio. The choices they must face. Be a part of Italy in 1529 where Leonardo Da Vinci lives, the inventor, Claudio’s teacher and friend. Let your mind become enthralled with the picturesque words of the author, visualize yourself with Alice, as she searches for her one true love, in a world so different but so beautiful. Let your eyes be spellbound, your heart feel her pain, feel the love she has, feel her spirit. You will cheer Ali on, tears will fill your eyes. Each page, each chapter will grip your senses. You will want to read to the very end, to find out what will happen in two worlds, so very far away, but so very close.

Where Do I Begin? (Barry Manilow's Dramatic Voice)
Alice- Angel of Time starts a few weeks after Alice Ferro's Italian holiday ended. She's at Canada and she's not happy. In fact, is like her soul and thoughts stayed with Claudio at Florence. She tries to reconnect with her family and friends but she struggles to share her feelings with them thanks to the uniqueness of her situation. (No spoilers, if you want to know, go and read book one)
Slowly, destiny starts to pull its strings. Alice happens to visit her dad at his laboratory. He's an astrophysicist and "enlightens" her about dark holes, wormholes and all those theories that have to do with space-time (She's a living proof of it!!!). This and her recent investigations in the library in order to find out what was of Claudio's life, help to bring Alice out of her gloomy state.
One day, she finds key information about her soulmate and yes, here's when EVERYTHING BEGINS.
She goes back to Italy and enlists the help of Luca and other Italian acquaintances to do what they can and save Claudio's life from peril. Alice and the others succeed at the first step, but, every story needs a little drama, no? Soon, saving Claudio from his fate is not the only thing at stake. It becomes one of the three problems they will face if they want to make it back to Canada (and to a certain time).
The immediate rescue of Claudio is her priority.
Alice is a very relatable main character. Her sadness and guilt towards the lies she told to her parents could be felt. She always tried to do what was best for her by taking in account all the people's feelings she might affect in the process. She never lost faith even after all she had been through. She never surrendered.
Claudio, Claudio is one of the best book boyfriends I've ever read. He is handsome, intelligent, chivalrous, loyal and a romantic Italian Count (Alice, you are a lucky girl, indeed). As thoughtful as Alice, he tried to do what was right for the people he cared about. Awww, he was so sweet at being frightened when he was about to meet Dr. Reno Ferro (Alice's father). Meanwhile, I'll be waiting for my own Count Claudio.
The rest of the characters (Da Vinci, Alice's parents, Caterina, Francesco, Clarice, etc) were brilliant. If you thought you have seen all of Bruno's madness in "Alice of the Rocks", you are mistaken. I hated him since the first book and this was no exception.
Dr. Reno, I knew you would save the day!
In a nutshell:
"Alice- Angel of Time" was a very entertaining novel with a little bit of everything. There was romance, action, mystery, sci-fi, intrigue, danger and history! Yes, Italian Renaissance era, I'm talking to you. The setting descriptions were very detailed but at the same time brief. I could imagine myself in the Medici palace or in Porta Rossa's sword duel.
The book was impossible to put down, I read it all in a day (I waited seven months to know what was going to happen, right?). My favourite parts were definitely the last chapters. I was so worried for Alice and Claudio! There are plot-twists. One I saw it coming but the second one was very unexpected and I was like "OMG!"
With a movie-like ending, Alice-Angel of Time was the perfect conclusion to "Alice of the Rocks" duology. I'm a little sad because the story ended but at the same time I'm very happy I read it. Alice and Claudio are a awesome YA couple. They remind me so much of Gwendolyn and Gideon from the Ruby Red Trilogy and of Romeo and Juliet from the 2013 movie version.
I really hope more people read the books because in my opinion, this duology is one of the best time-travel romance novels out there! One of the best reads of the year!
Congratulations to the author!
