"Definitely a wow book. I thought after reading the blurb about this book it was going to follow some of the same story lines that come with new adult paranormal books. But it didn't at all. And I FREAKIN LOVE it!!!!!!" -Kmnh

"This was one of the best books I have read in a while. It gripped me from the start."- Maria Dodd

"OMG OMG OMG AMAZING is an understatement!! The only bad thing with this book is that it ENDED. I was hooked from the first page to the very last!"- Toni

I agree with some of the other reviewers from this lower end of the scale. The book started off GREAT. I haven't quite finished it, but I'm really not sure I'm going to. The leading lady was so likeable to start. She just became this weak person that you don't really want your daughter reading and thinking that is how she should be around or for a guy.

I'm not sure who she is using for editing, or what program, but it needs some work. Most I can overlook, but as the book went on it seemed to get worse. Like the author was getting into the "gotta finish this book" frenzy.

I don't normally leave book reviews, but this had to be done. If for no other reason than to have her get it re-edited.

Definitely a wow book. I thought after reading the blurb about this book it was going to follow some of the same story lines that come with new adult paranormal books. But it didn't at all. And I FREAKIN LOVE it!!!!!!

Now those of you who think they know exactly what this book is about and just want to skip over it please don't. It really is an amazing start to a series. You can expect certain things like a mild cliffhanger (unless you ignore her warning when she tells you to not to read the first 2 chapters of the next installment, which I did and boy do I wish I didn't. That turned into a major cliffhanger!!!!), detailed intros to all the characters that takes up a majority of the first half of the book, and one sexy ass guy. But one you get the jist of everybody in the book the story takes off and makes you glued, needing to know what the hell is going to happen.

Another pro of this book is it doesn't have a whiney, needy, stalkerish, love at first sight heroine. She was actually intelligent and tries to kick ass if she needs to. Thank God!!!!! I can't stand helpless girls that need the boys to do everything in books. It's almost an insult to females everywhere that in order to catch a sexy Seth from the past you have to have him do everything. Don't worry though this girl,Mari, is definitely not like that.

The only thing bad I'd have to say about this book is that it took a while for the main story line to get started. Not that I didn't love what happened in the mean time, it's just the whole being in the wrong time part was a page turner and it ended shortly after it started. But I'll chop that up to being that this is a series of books and being the first book it had alot to describe before going into the good part.

All in all though loved the start and can't wait for so much more!!!!

Seth Sangre is technically really old. He was born THOUSANDS of years ago. Due to some time travel-ing that I won’t get into (spoilers!), he is in modern day, and attending college. Mari just started at the same college as well, and while she doesn't want to fall prey to the “player” type of guy anymore, that’s pretty much the first thing that we see happen to her. But it’s not that simple, as events move along, and Mari realizes that Seth is not all that he seems…

Normally, when someone starts a description of a book with “It’s like Twilight, but…” I’m already not interested, unless the next part is “…but not written poorly?” While it may be a gross generalization, that would be a fairly good summation. Seriously, I read MAYBE 15 pages of Twilight before deleting it, but this book kept me interested to the very end. Mari is a college freshman, so she is more mature than a 16 year old high school girl (although sometimes, only slightly more mature), and I really enjoy time travel in any way, shape, or form. As long as the time travel is done well. And while there wasn’t as much as I would have liked so far (I’m looking for Dr Who frequency of time travel), it was very well done.

I really enjoyed this first volume of the series, and I will definitely be picking up future additions!

This was so cheesy for me. I just couldn't get into it. Not captivating and couldn't relate to the characters. Regretted buying this. Majority of the plot talks about the female heroine feelings towards Sean being a player and her daily college routine which just turned me off. No explanation as to why the male lead thought she was the one. Maybe it could have been better if the male lead POV was included to give more telling details of his feelings. Not to crazy about how the male lead couldn't say no to his ex girlfriend why pursuing the female lead. It even details a game for 5-10 pages long which I just flipped through. I didn't feel the passion, the angst, and the romance. Just plain cheesy plot and not captivating. Boring really. Couldn't finished the book. I already forgot the names of the characters. Just to show how forgettable and boring the book is. Don't bother with this one.

I'd have to say that the best part of this book was then ending. The ending is what now has me hooked. Throughout this book, I found myself able to put it down and continue my daily routine and pick up in between. It had enough to it to keep me going and not completely blow it off but not enough for it to be a show stopper. Make sense? The last two chapters is all it took before I realized that it was just getting good. So, with that being said, off to book 2.

Worth reading nonetheless.
