Cate, a strong, feisty, capable and independent young woman, was an extremely likeable character who handles well being thrown into a new and unsettling world. The other characters were equally complex and believable and even the opposing faction were likeable.
Interesting, and also much more realistic, was the way in which the author dealt with the two factions. Neither black nor white in their decisions and actions as far as moral rightness is assessed, the shades of grey made this a much more thought provoking read.
A unique take on time travel, great world building and plenty of action and humour amidst the magical mayhem made this story a pleasure to read. There are also some zinger twists awaiting.
Definitely a book to add to your reading pile, age no barrier, I'm several decades past young adult and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now waiting, not so patiently, for book two of The Midnight Chronicles.
Note: I received a copy from the generous author in return for my honest review. I've subsequently purchased my own copy, because this is most definitely a book that is firmly lodged in my reread pile! Definitely one you don't want to miss.
The main character Cate I found to be unrealistic. In her past she would see changes for example one day they would have a car the next there would be no car in there history due to someone playing with the timeline. Now she can she these shifts however nearly everybody else can't. She witnesses something at the beginning of the book which explains why she is seeing what she is seeing. At first she is in denial which is OK I don't expect her to except what is happening completely. But what does Cate do she buries her head in the sand and doesn't believe what she is seeing. They have to keep telling her what is happening even though she saw it happen before. I found her to be dumb. I don't like to use this word but it felt like she did not use her brain and in the book she is meant to be an intelligent girl. If it was me this happened too, (once it sunk in) I would go looking for answers and not wast time not believing what I am seeing. Also she did not question what was happening around her. I figured a few things out from the beginning of the book just by reading what she saw.
At the beginning of the book I did not engage with the characters. I felt they were over the top, either good or bad. I did not find any complexity with them except for Jonah. This put me off the book. I had to put it down a few times and it took me ages to finish.
The best part is towards the end when you get a lot of answers and action. There is a lot of twist towards the end. Some I guessed and others I was surprised at. The last chapter I found confusing and I have gone over it a few times and it doesn't make sense in some parts.
Some people might actually like this book but it is not for me.
This is in no way a reflection on the author. This my honest review alone.
well written and entertaining throughout, but don't blink or you'll miss something important, in this tale not even the main heroine knows who she really is or whether she even good or evil and nobody is who they really seem on the outside!
500 years in the making where good vs evil wizards one side trying to protect the time line and the other trying to change it to their preference.
looking forward to book 2 in the series
Really enjoyed the idea of time travellers. was hooked from the first chapter and now desperately need the second book out so I can read that too!
Fans of Julie Cross's Tempest series will also enjoy this.
