The story concept caught my interest at the start. Petra is a high school student that ends up traveling back in time when she visits a fortune teller. For me, everything immediately fell apart after this point. The start of it was that Petra was dressed up as a princess, including a tiara.. yet the "peasants" didn't so much as look at her! Her wardrobe would have set her up to be wealthy royalty with the lower classes bowing, being differential, etc. There was simply nothing realistic about the time period she went to. That is what makes time travel novels so delightful to read - the different customs, ways of thinking, learning history.
As for the characters, I felt no connection to any of them. In fact, I had to look at other reviews to remember their names. :(
Several times I found myself feeling confused and flipping back to see if I had missed a page (or chapter). It just felt like a lot was left unsaid. I'm not sure if this was meant to make it mysterious and make us curious or if the writer had it all in her own mind and kinda neglected to realize we, the readers, needed to be told things to "get it". After awhile I quit caring enough to flip back and would just skim past the confusing parts and hope it would make sense later. Now for the truly frustrating part: It never came together to make any sense! Instead we were given a cliffhanger and another book.
I wanted to love this book. I really, really did! Perhaps that is why I feel doubly disappointed. Needless to say, I won't be reading the next book. :(
Here's what kept it from a lower rating: edited well.
Here's what kept it from a higher rating: It wasn't written well. Characters lacked depth. In fact, the only character that seemed to have any emotion was Garret, and he was hardly a character. There was no emotion in the book. There was no magic either - how was she transported through time? I guess by an earthquake. Things were mentioned, like the Black Shuck - what was that? Apparently we had met it in the book but the author did not really make the reader aware of this. There's a romance between Petra and Emory. Well, at least the author tells you there is one, but it just sort of happens. He kissed her. that was the description. Petra didn't think anything of it. I didn't either. I was entirely apathetic throughout this book.

A bad dream or it this real. Petra must find her way back…
Young Petra with her friend Robyn, and tag along little sister Zoe tour the Royal Oaks Renaissance Faire. Arriving at the Fortuneteller’s Tent is not random by any means. A young man by the name of Kyle passed a note to Petra to meet him there. She really likes Kyle, and is hoping to be invited to the school prom.
Petra doesn’t see him anywhere, maybe he’s inside the tent. Leaving Robyn and Zoe outside she enters in search of this handsome young man. What she find is Fester the Fortuneteller. Fester tells Petra that he can “foretell her fate”. Scared, Petra stumbles out of the tent, but instead of her sister and friend, she finds that nothing appears as it should me. She must be dreaming…
Kristy Tate takes you on a brilliant journey through time. Colorful characters help bring the story to life while traveling in “Elizabethan England”. Emory has to be my favorite. He is full of mystery, and befriends Petra. A bit of romance adds to the emotional turmoil Petra experiences during her stay in this unfamiliar place.
I look forward to reading more…Nicely done! 4/5
