Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Time traveler Michele Windsor thought she left the love of her life behind in 1910 in Timeless (Delacorte, 2011), so she is shocked to find him enrolled as a student in her elite New York City school. Even more perplexing, Philip doesn't seem to recognize her, despite the close connection they shared in the past. As she tries to sort out the mystery of Philip's reappearance, another issue arises: Rebecca, a rogue time traveler with a grudge against the Windsor family, appears. When Michele loses the key that allows her to travel through time, she is trapped in the present, where Rebecca is plotting to do her harm. With the help of friends from the present and the past, Michele must thwart her nemesis and solve the mystery of her own origins and Philip's apparent reappearance. The strength of this book lies in its plot, with plenty of twists and turns. However, most of the secondary characters are fairly flat and the writing lacks polish. Devoted fans of the first book may want to read this volume, but for everyone else, it's strictly an additional purchase.-Misti Tidman, Licking County Library, Newark, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Michele Windsor is an orphaned child born of time-crossed parents, an anomaly that should never happen. Her father was a Timekeeper who could time travel at will, and Michele has inherited his abilities. She found, and then lost, her true love, Philip, in 1910, and is now living a somewhat hollow life in contemporary New York while trying to avoid Rebecca, a vengeful ancestor with an extreme grudge. Then a boy who looks just like Philip transfers to Michele’s exclusive boarding school, and their time lines begin to converge and split as everything Michele knows changes. Choppy writing and multiple points of view in several time periods make for a somewhat confusing narrative, especially for those who haven’t read Monir’s first novel, Timeless (2011), but the sheer desperation of Michele’s quest to reunite with Philip is compelling. The setting—Manhattan, both turn of the century and contemporary—stands out clearly as the true centerpiece of this love letter to the opulence of the Gilded Age. Grades 7-10. --Charli Osborne

Ever hear of a cross-century war? This book has one going on. The charming time-travel story continues in this second part. The first was incredibly romantic and left off with a cliffhanger; however, this second book in the series could be read alone.

Things start off with a mystery. Michele is a sixteen-year-old girl from the present who fell in love with a boy from the past; a century past. She met him before her grandparents were born. Then she loses him, being forced back into her present.

One day, to her shock, the new kid shows up at her school. It's him! He found a way to cross time and be with her. The problem is, he doesn't seem to know her, and he is hanging out with another girl. Her heart crashes. What's going on here? Her character is well written as she pursues her answers. What a strong, brave girl.

Mixed in with thismystery is the romantic tale of how Michele's parents meet and fall in love. It's a lovely story on its own, but with a tragic ending. Also, Michele is told that children of cross-timed parents are strictly forbidden to exist--her. A woman from the past wants to kill her and does horrible things to get at her. Time is running out for Michele. Will Philip remember her and help her?

There are tender moments, not only for Michele and Philip, but for Michele's parents. She gets to watch them, see their young love. Another great moment is when Michele goesback in time and meets the father she never knew. She gets answers. Her dad's background is quite interesting.

This book is filled with suspense. Though it seems to focus more on Michele's parents than on her and Philip, it's still a great read from a talented author.

I loved Timeless, book one in the series, and dove right into Timekeeper immediately after closing the cover on Timeless. With that huge cliffhanger ending, I just had to know what would happen next. And I'm happy to say that I loved Timekeeper just as much as Timeless. There was definitely no second-in-a-series syndrome with this book!

I was expecting a sweet love story and a nice fast-paced plot, based on how Timeless read for me. But Timekeeper had a much more intense plot than book one. With all the world-building complete, Monir really took off with the story, making for a great read. I was surprised and pleased at the plot's intricacy. I loved everything about this book!

The love story was so well-done. Monir hit the perfect note, keeping things clean enough for YA but emotional enough to satisfy the reader. Michele and Phillip have to work hard to find their love and to get back together----which was a nice change of pace. I like it when things don't just magically fall into place in characters' lives just because they are in love. The fact that Michele and Phillip had serious obstacles to overcome made their relationship that much stronger and sweeter.

The villian was a nice surprise and definitely kept things interesting. The conflict resolution was really well-handled and added a lot to the story. I can't wait for book three...I highly recommend this series!

******Mild spoilers*******
Having read Timeless when it was first released, I've waited a long time for the sequel. Overall I was pleased, but I thought it lacked some of the magic of the first book. Here's how I break it down.

The good:
We learn a lot more about time travel and the mechanics of it.
We learn about Michele's parents, and the author did a great job of telling their story.
I love that there's an actual villain in this book, and I found her backstory very believable. I was almost sympathetic.

The bad:
The biggest disappointment for me was Michele and Philip's relationship, which I loved in the first book. Not that it was bad, it just wasn't particularly compelling either. It lacked the complexities of Timeless.

(SPOILER: Also, I just couldn't buy the whole reincarnation thing. I get that it's a fantasy, but it has nothing to do with time travel. To me it seemed like the author was going with the easiest explanation.)

Overall I enjoyed Timekeeper very much. Though I thought Timeless was better, I will definitely read anything Alexandra Monir writes.

This review is really for both Timeless, the first book in this series, and Timekeeper, which seamlessly takes off where Timeless ended.

Both books excellently tell the story of Michele Windsor and her struggle to come to terms with the sudden, untimely death of her single mother, and her upheaval from her life in California to living with her old-money grandparents in a New York mansion on Fifth Avenue maintained, and left over, essentially, from The Gilded Age of the late 1800s to the early 1900s.

I should state outright I am not, and haven't been for decades, normally a reader of young adult fiction. I only recently have regained an interest in it.

But these books are FAR more than young adult, or fantasy, or romance, or whatever genre or category marketers wish to place them in. In fact, they fall, for my tastes, closer to a historic mystery than any other category.

The writing is captivating; the descriptions, transporting; the emotions, as mixed and vibrant and authentic as a teen-ager's.

History is, after all, anything and everything that happened before our existence, or known existence, on the planet. I found humorous descriptions of the 1990s, as distant to a modern teenager as was, for me, the 1930s, 40s and 50s. But the books travel farther back, to a time when the entire country was young, barely even a century old.

And the history in Timekeeper, and Timeless before it, is flawless. As is the scientific theory, right down to time traveling having an effect like a centrifuge or a gravitational pull.
