Book 1-Time Travel/Vampire Series
"I'm seventeen and he's twenty-one. That's okay...isn't it? He drives a Lamborghini. So what? He was born in 1462. Uh-oh. He seeks revenge, but there is one person standing in his way. Me."
On a high school trip to London, Madison Lambourne starts out on the wrong foot and things go from bad to worse. She forgets her jacket on the plane and ends up losing her group. While waiting for her luggage she meets a handsome young man who mistakes her for someone else named Madeline. After Mrs. Bertorelli finds her and they get her luggage...thanks to the handsome man...she retrieves a note he dropped. An old note written in her own handwriting.
As her class tours London, Maddie is caught into a deeper mystery. She meets Johnny De Vere, the airport hunk, at the Tower of London. He takes her different places and seems to think she should feel as if she had been there before. She starts finding Johnny a bit scary, although still hunky. Suddenly Maddie finds herself time traveling to 1483 London. A time where two young boys are going to be murdered because they are a threat to the new king. She also learns that vampires do exist and she seems to be falling for one.
This is a hard-to-put-down type book. Full of adventure, romance and rich history. Johnny and the other Patrons may be vampires but it is not focused on that alone. You travel back and "see" the styles and looks of London. In Lake Havasu, Arizona you can see the London Bridge. I recently did see it and read the history of some of the be-headings. When running through 1483 London with Maddie and Johnny it was neat to "see" the bridge and unfortunately even a few of those heads. I personally enjoyed this book and look forward to the next books in this series.
I also enjoyed the fact that the storyline is different and the scenes flow in a smooth rapidly paced way (some people call that a page turner) and it certainly was for me.
The last thing I liked about this book is how well written it is. There are far too many good stories out there so riddled with typos and poor grammar that they are simply not worth the time of day.
The missing star is simply for subjective reasons; I wished the protagonist was older, I wish she'd made certain different choices and I feel the plot could have used more characters.
The verdict: a good read!
Johnny "before and after" (you will need to read the story to understand exactly what that means!)is a great character and I loved how the author dealt with the varying aspects of his personality. The inclusion of the young Princes, Edward and Richard, into the storyline gave the story depth and purpose and I really enjoyed how Maddie interacted with them.
There were a few loose ends, but the conclusion is still very satisfying. I am really hoping to see a second book in the near future. I would love to know how the relationship between Maddie and Johnny develops and where it goes from here. All in all, I really enjoyed the story and I think it is well worth reading. I highly recommend it!
Young weaves a story rich with history, action and love. The characters are awesome and well developed. It's great to read an author who can vividly describe history as well as back up those descriptions with respectable research. Honestly there really wasn't a boring moment. Bravo Young!!!
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys either genre. I stayed up all night reading it. That's the highest recommendation I can give a book.
I'm totally in love with Johnny, and loved getting to see both "sides" of him in this tale. It really gave his character depth. Maddie was endearing as well, and I loved how she managed to stumble upon her destiny.
I'm hoping since there is a series title after this book that more is coming. I did not want the book to end! I'm adding this to my favorites pile!
