My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Let me begin this review by saying this is a Time Travel book and it is amazing that it is Ms. Leah’s first foray into this type of writing. The pace of the story was fast, action packed, and emotion filled on every page. There was also the excitement in seeing this was book 1 of a new series by Shannyn Leah.
There are two types of people covered in her story. The Gatekeepers are the ones that go back and gather information, stop negative things in the past and generally keep the present safe. That part of the story was interesting and you get to know how this family of Gatekeepers works together. Then you have the additional element of Seconds. That is where Brea comes in and boy, does she make a splash. Let’s just say, she is her own woman. She has seen things that the Winters have not, and she is not content to sit back and let things continue as they have been. She is a dynamo.
Shannyn Leah has created a wonderful world with time jumpers, unborns, elders, gatekeepers and seconds. These all work together to make an amazing adventure with romance, danger, and intrigue. This is a fantastic book. I hope she carries in with the Winter family. I need to read more about them all.I love time travel and she really aced the time travel aspects!
The story is different from her earlier work yet it contains the same type of strong likable characters that we recognize from her other books. She certainly knows how to bring us wonderful men like Jax and confident women, like Brea that want to make a mark on the world. I loved the interaction between the characters and just the unique connection that they shared.
This book would be perfect for anyone that loves a good romance, time travel, a little mystery, or just a well-written novel. This is a series to watch for and the best part is that Ms. Leah is a prolific writer, so we will not have to wait long for the next book about the Winters.
