Book Description


Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements. When a mysterious accident transports Simon and his new assistant, Elizabeth West, back in time, Simon finally finds both the proof that he's been looking for, and the romance that he hasn't. In 1920s Manhattan, they find that are more than mobsters vying for power in the city's speakeasies. Will Simon and Elizabeth's developing relationship survive the vampires' teeth? Will they survive to make it back? Or will they be forever out of time?

I picked this up for my kindle mainly because it was free. I am very glad I did as it proved to be a very entertaining read. The main characters are likable and the story clips along at a fast pace. The accidental time traveler theme means that the characters can be allowed to have very modern thoughts and principles in a historic setting, as one of my pet hates in historic novels is anachronistic mindsets for the hero\heroine this is a plus for me.

The one thing I would say is that it reads almost like a screenplay, there is a lot of action and not much thought to consequences, as though some bits have ended up on the cutting room floor. That is a minor grumble rather than a serious weakness and I will be buying the rest of the series.

Downloaded a freebie and was so pleased I did - I really loved this book. I would have been happy with just the time travel aspect of the book which was really well written. The vampire hunting part of the novel didn't come in until over half way through and was a bit of a surprise add on really.

That said I'm really loking forward to the next novel in the series.

Hmm, think I must have missed whatever the other reviewers on here found to enjoy about the 'romance' in this book. While it's fair to point out that I generally avoid the romance genre, I'm not averse to a bit of sexual tension to keep a good storyline bubbling along. Unfortunately, I was already getting a bit fed up with these two characters when one of them did the inevitable 'I cannot let them get close to me because I'm such a terrible person' rubbish. It feels like such a cop out of a plot device and all the sighing and inward 'ooh'ing from the other one didn't do much to help either!

Added to these rather Mills and Boonesque shenanigans, the storyline takes a further weird turn when it inexplicably takes on a supernatural element. There just seem to be far too many themes and not enough substance. I have to confess I didn't finish this book as although I hate giving up on a novel, there are times when you just have to tell yourself that life is too short.

This is ultimately chick lit with a few extra twists, so if you're looking for an intelligent novel about time travel, this will likely disappoint.

I admit, I avoided this book initially, thinking that it would just be another vampire romance type book- but it was the time travel side of it that lured me in. I'm really glad I gave it a try- this was a fun paranormal book with a really interesting premise to it.

This book sees Professor Simon Cross, a long time lecturer in the occult, and his assistant, Elizabeth West, transported back in time to 1920's New York. Aside from mobsters and the pull of the speakeasies, the two of them find that the city that never sleeps may have something more sinister lurking in its underbelly. Can they make it back to the present day alive?

This was a really fun read that had a lot of things going for it, in my opinion. What worked well: the setting. The prohibition era of 1920's New York was just abundant with possibilities and I do feel the author managed to convey this very well- as a reader you can imagine yourself walking the streets very clearly. Also, her character development, aside from the weak and two dimensional `King Kashian' was generally very good and aside from Elizabeth and Simon, I had a bit of a soft spot for Charlie Blue as well. I would have loved to visit his speakeasy!

The romance as well between Elizabeth and Simon was also very natural and not rushed and I felt the chemistry was well written and had a nice build up. Neither character was depicted as being perfect and their flaws and uncertainties added a nice dimension to the book.

A few niggles though that keep me from awarding this the full five stars: in my opinion there were a few aspects that just didn't tie together fully.

I don't write reviews often although I read at least a book a day, if not more (lucky to be a speed reader)

I downloaded this a few hours ago on the kindle for free and I must say I loved it, I would happily have paid for it.

The writing, style, pace, description, the love scenes .. In fact everything was well written, well edited and constructed.

This is worth anyone's money, and I intend to buy the next book.

LOVED IT.

My thoughts: I have to confess I was sold at the very first sentence, when I learned this story would take place in New York in the 1920s. I mean that is such an incredibly exciting time with so many unexploited opportunities: the prohibition, the universe of gangsters, speakeasies, barmaids, gunfights just to name a few, who wouldn't be excited to read a story set then and there? So with so many ideas jumping in my head after only reading the introductory sentence of the blurb, I have to admit that my expectations of Out of Time were (very very) high: I wanted to read an exciting and original story. And Out of Time surpassed all my expectations!

Not only did I get my share of gangsters, speakeasies and barfights, Monique Martin's descriptive yet fluent writing transported me back in time to the New York of the '20s. The small streets and diners, the pawnshop and bars and all the other major or minor characters became more than mere settings and characters on paper, I felt as if I were strolling those scary yet exciting streets alongside Elizabeth and Simon. The old New York came to life while I was reading Out of Time, the setting became reality, which doesn't happen often, even with contemporary locations.

The other major high of this novel was the amazing characterization. In the characters of Simon and Elizabeth, Monique Martin gave us not simply two likable characters, but complex, layered characters, who have their own background which gives them depth and character. Even independently Simon and Elizabeth are both given history, little details that help the reader feel as if they know them personally, little quirks and faults that make them real everyday people and not larger than life unrealistic pawns of the story.
