The earlier reviews you'll see apparently liked the book despite some editing flaws, and thus the lower ratings. I haven't read the "first edition," but I did read this "second edition" as a proofreader, with neither a request for nor an expectation of a review, and as AMZ will hopefully state, my review is based on a "verified purchase." I didn't read the earlier reviews before starting this one, either. However, for what it's worth, I think if those reviewers read this version they'd find the flaws they were concerned about gone, and might toss in another star or twelve. *s*
Even if time travel normally isn't your "thing"...whether it's traveling by magic or science...give this book a try. It's a great read.
There a few twists and turns but generally this is a book where the plot is built block by block leading to a satisfying ending. It's on my To Be Reread pile.
I want to start off by saying that most of you know I don't do spoilers but I even do less of them when it comes to mysteries and paranormals because even tiny little "throwaway" factors can be huge tip-offs. What I will say in regard to the plot is I found it to be ingenious. I always enjoy time-travel stories more where it happens more due to paranormal/magic than science, I think it just adds a special element that can actually heighten the mystery and even might border on horror.
As for the characters, they intrigued me and kept my interest from beginning to end. I loved Lew's dedication to finding Mira, personally I don't know that I would have been able to keep my focus if I woke up in 1919 nearly a hundred years in the past. As for Alec, despite having returned from four bloody years of war he is able to adjust somewhat "normally" back to civilian life. That's not to say either character doesn't have issues with their circumstances but it makes them that much more rounded and believable.
Finally, I should note that there are some grammatical errors that some might find off putting or have issue with, but for this reader I did not. Perhaps its because I tend to just mentally fix them as I read or perhaps I like to put my focus on the story and AL Lester's Lost in Time kept me intrigued from the first page to the last. I look forward to what this new author brings us next.
This is a great story that plunges you into the life of London in the 1920’s, it adds a twist of paranormal and a dose of forbidden longing.
The story is mainly from Lew’s perspective with Alec’s perspective thrown in at times; there isn’t a real romance just a promise of something lingering throughout the story. The story is mainly focused on finding Lew’s sister and then finding the creature that is hunting in London, we discover slowly over time the role of the Workers and The Border and what they think the creatures are.
I really liked this story and enjoyed following Lew along as he gets settled in a new time and finds his feet. Alec looks to be an interesting man and I can’t wait to see how their relationship progresses in future books.
The storyline is good and flows quite well once you understand the concept of The Border and how both Mira and Lew found themselves in the 1918 & 1919. We discover that Mira and Lew have more allies than they thought and that there just might be lives for the both of them in the time they discover themselves in.
I recommend this if you love time-travel, historical’s, mysterious creatures from another place, and the beginning of something forbidden between two men.
