Compelling To The Very End,
This review is from: The River of No Return (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One of those books where the end comes too soon. Although not gripping at first the story soon pulls the reader in to the world of time travelling, the Guild who controls those who jump through time and the Ofan who the Guild say are not to be trusted and who may have changed the future for the worse.
Nick 'jumped' from the battlefield, leaving behind his heritage, title and family. Back in the Regency era his neighbour, Julia, mourns the death of her beloved grandfather and the unwelcome arrival of a cousin looking for secrets. Both hold an importance to the Guild. This is a story of the grey area between good and bad, how knowledge can skew the idea of what you considered to be right and above all, this is a story of adventure between now and the past.
Intriguing characters, a well developed story and interesting premise made this much more enjoyable than The Time Traveller's Wife and hopefully this will be first in a series.
