Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Abé's fifth Drákon fantasy romance (after 2009's The Treasure Keeper) introduces Honor Carlisle, whose time-traveling powers help her fit into a dragon society hidden in the midst of 18th-century England. In an original and ambitious spin on time travel stories, Honor is at once the heroine and, from a future time line, the nemesis who drives the plot. The slow revelation of why and how such a sympathetic character could turn against her values adds dramatic tension, and the drákon's well-meant efforts to avert tragedy lead them to horrific expedients, making a welcome change from stock villains. Despite occasional purple prose and an unsatisfying ending precipitated by a third party who forces resolution on the conflicted protagonists, this story delivers a real sense of wonder. (June)

The Drakon series has been frustrating. Some books feel too rushed, others fail to make sense. The Time Weaver is one of the best in the series, with a sense of wonder restored, the problematic abuse issues removed, and logical character development. It's not perfect, but it's everything I like about this series and very little that I don't. Honor, who we've met in other books briefly, is kidnapped from the Drakon for her own safety. From there, her story is about the peril of trying to fix the past from the future, instead of living in today.

Honor is able to move through time, but not without cost. She is drawn to her future lover, Sandu without knowing who he is. The tone of Honor's girlhood is perfect - her frustration with herself, her second guessing of her actions, her knowledge that no matter how much she tries to offer herself guidance, she won't listen. Honor and Sandu's story unfolds beautifully, with real magic in the telling of it. Alternating between different versions of themselves, the story is told through their eyes at different levels of experience.

What keeps The Time Weaver from being a five star read is the ending. While Honor's actions in other books are beautifully explained and provide real dramatic tension, the ending feels off. I don't want to spoil anything, because this is a book that is served by letting each section quietly unfold from the one before it, but the resolution bothered me. It doesn't arise from the rest of the story, except indirectly, and it supports an aspect of the Drakon culture (imperialism and conquest) I don't care for. Things in Sandu's life are never developed, because Honor drives both the crisis and the solution.

A Kid's Review on June 2, 2010
Format: Hardcover
As with all of her works the book grabs you from the first page. The story is so well written you immediately feel a connection with Honor, all her thoughts and longings. The ending was unique but utterly fitting in with the story so far, even though I wish it had been a little more detailed. This is one book you cannot miss out on. If you're waiting on a paperback don't! Its rare that you read a romance novel that completely comes out with a new twist, and this one is definately worth the money! I'm so excited even now and I just finished it! I only wish I knew what was coming next.

I wanted to like this book more than I did, but the ending sorta killed it. Rather than allowing the main heroine of the book, Honor, discover and use her own power to bring about a happy ending, it is Lia who does it. While I don't have a huge problem with this, it does weaken Honor as a character. Also, do not expect to find out what happened to Christoff or Rue, you will be disappointed. It is like Shana Abe completely forgot about the two characters whom started the whole series. Either she has a plan to reintroduce them or mention them in the next series she's written in the Drakon Universe, or she just hoped we'd forget about them (I sure didn't). Still, this book is a fabulous love story with some interesting twists. I just wish that we could have been given a less rushed ending. It felt like she just wanted to end it rather than give a complete resolution to all the various plot lines. Characters introduced briefly are covered briefly and serve no real purpose (so why bother?).

I am still very happy I read this series, and I still highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good romance series that sometimes gives up a healthy dose of bittersweet.

Very enjoyable all told. The 5th book I found a bit slow. And there's a lot of disparaging of smelly reeking humanity throughout the series. Not that I don't agree to some extent, but it's tedious as there's a lot of it. I enjoyed the story tho, that kept me going. Worth reading.

This was a great addition to the Drakon Series. The story was different because Honor's Gift is so unique from the other Drakon. But it has action and I was worried at times about what was going to happen...you get to know more of what happens with Zane and Lia and where they are. It has a happy ending which I appreciate cuz it could've gone badly for all but it did not. I would love another book that tells of the union between Darkfrith and the Zaharen! I did not find any of these 5 Drakon books to be dull or boring at all. I recommend them all!

If they find one another in their own time, they risk everything.

Honor Carlisle is drakon`, a dragon. The females of her clan do not have the ability to shapeshift into dragon form, but the men do. In fact, the women usually don't have any gifts at all. However, Honor does and it is a well-kept secret. She has the very rare gift of time weaving, able to move back and forth through time.

Another member of the drakon`, Lady Lia, has the ability to see the future, and she has seen what happens in Honor's future. To try and change the visions, she has her husband kidnap Honor. She explains to Honor that if she were to stay in Darkfith', the town of the drakon`, she would surely perish.

Honor finds letters to herself over the next few years from the future, telling her what she should and shouldn't do, in hopes of changing the future or making it better. Honor keeps finding herself weaving to Sandu, a drakon` Prince in the Zaharen Mountains. Sandu only has mere glimpses and few words with Honor over the years as she appears and disappears, but he has his own gifts and knows she is the other half of his heart.

Honor beseeches Sandu to find her in their natural time so they may be together. But Lady Lia's visions have changed. If Sandu and Honor surrender to their passions, not only Honor will die, but all of the drakon` and the human race will as well. Honor and Sandu will have to place their faith, trust, and love in magic to maintain or restore the drakon' race.

THE TIME WEAVER is another magnificent tale from master storyteller Shana Abe`. Her world-building is remarkable and her characters are a breath of fresh air. Romance and suspense against a richly painted backdrop of dragons and breathtaking landscapes, THE TIME WEAVER is phenomenal. Fantasy and paranormal lovers will enjoy this one!
