At the Queen Victoria's behest, three teams are invited to an energy exposition of applied technology. Wind power vies against two kinds of combustion engines and two different fuels. From all future indications, if the "wrong" energy power triumphs, the timeline is forever altered. Lady Kiera's team is the one Alice believes must win. Not only that, Grayson and Kiera must solve the technical hurdles using knowledge from their era.
Meanwhile, Edmund's determined to woo Lady Kiera back into his arms. Can this adventurer from the future find and keep a hold of the love of his life? Can they cheat time without forever altering the course of history?
The Queen gave them strict orders never to return to mess with the time line, but they think they can't get caught. Do they? Well, you have to read the book to find out. I am not giving any clues.
Edmund, Alice and Grayson must travel back in time to repair the damage of their first trip and must prevent the father of Keira to continue to build his inventions. Will they manage to save the world, or combine even more trouble?
Keira is a character strong, stubborn, complicated but her chemistry with Edmund is magical. Try to resist the attraction she feels for him but it is very difficult. She's rightly offended for not having seen for four years neither Edmund nor Grayson. But how to explain that they had lived in a different era? Edmund, and Alice Grayson confirmed as characters likeable, smart and funny.
You can also read this book as a stand alone but for a more comprehensive lecture I advice to read the series in order.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It was truly engaging, very well written with great dialogue and a fast pace.
I recommend it to those who love time travel, technology and Victorian England.
Queen Victoria has decreed that a contest is to determine the type of energy their society will now use as events in the previous installment have completely changed the way people live setting them on a course of destruction. Characters from the previous book return to the past, where the majority of the book takes place, from the future to set things right in a storyline that keeps your pulse and head pounding at times with its complexity. With all the scientific jargon comes a pleasant romance reuniting lovers from the previous release with the sexual tension between them still as potent.
Edmund and Keira make a delightful couple! They're both extremely intelligent and the banter between them is fast-paced and witty. It's definitely a battle of the sexes where a HEA is their reward. With the Fate of the world hanging in the balance and with time-travel endangering the world the more it's used it's an unconventional ending that keeps you guessing until the very end. Along with a main couple that you can't help but be drawn to comes the couple from the previous release returning to offer support. Having so many brainiacs in the group makes the storyline more plausible and easier to immerse yourself in. Ms. Burkhart's talent for writing descriptive scenes and presenting the past in a lively way also help in immersing yourself in the storyline.
Overall, despite its slow start and occasionally confusing storyline, I found myself in awe of Ms. Burkhart's talent in juggling so many different themes successfully. This story is both thoughtprovoking and emotional and keeps you guessing until the very end. The romance is at times heartbreaking yet ultimately richly rewarding in its creativity. Readers wanting a story dramatically different from what's come before will want to give this story a chance while waiting for the next installment.
