For this review, I will write about each story
Lines of Time and desire by JL Clayton: Londyn and Scott becomes friends, when Scott sends a text to the wrong person, over time their friendship becomes complicated. The way JL Clayton writes you can imagine the smaller details in the story, the giddy school girl smile when Londyn receives the texts, the desperation to meet. JL Clayton has got the knack when it comes to short stories and this was no different. Keeping the story interesting right to the end and still adding a gasp moment. Think a modern-day Lake house.
Homecoming by Carissa Ann Lynch: Astrid is in mourning, her life completely changed when her younger brother died, but with the help of an eccentric old lady, can she heal her family’s heartbreak. Whilst reading this story I felt so sorry for Astrid and her dad and could not imagine losing a child. Using the good old faithful old lady/ witch just added to this story because it was not until the end that you knew what her purpose was. The ending was an added shock as I had not got a clue how her brother died and what was the cause. A great story and I would love to read more stories about Alexandra.
A Web Through Time by Niki Livingstone: The first story with a sci-fi element. The year is 2025 Alex’s life is in danger and she does not know who to trust, can her going into the future save her life and the lives of others. Full of action and drama this had me turning the pages to see if Alex survives. Even though a future time, somethings like racism and segregation never change. As a short story this is a great introduction to Alex and I was left me wanting to read more of her story.
Willow and The Forbidden Portal by Regina O’Connell: Willow is an herbalist, with the help of her herbs she spends her time trying to save people’s lives. However, one day it all goes wrong and she is running for her life, after being branded a witch. The story flows smoothly and due to the descriptive writing, you can imagine following Willow on her journey. A magical romance that will make you look at ancient trees differently.
Cassandra’s Choice by Ashlee Shades: Cassandra was a strong-willed woman who met her match when she woke up in the 19th century. An historical romance, I enjoyed this story very much as I liked the mixture of attitudes between the centuries. The Duke was your typical 19th century gent who although had an attitude, still knew where his manners were. Hopefully Cassandra got her HEA
The Secrets Crows Keep by Bradon Nave: Mildred was haunted by secrets and it was not until a visitor came, that she had to come to terms with what she did. Throughout this story, my mind was trying to work out, how she travelled in time and why did she have a hatred for her husband. Whilst reading this story I found Mildred to be one dangerous lady. I love the spin with Time travel and explanation of Mildred and the visitor’s connection. Although if you went into the Secrets Crow keep, you would get quite a shock.
Bridging the Gap by Jeremy Simons: Not happy with his life, all Garrett wanted to do was to kill himself by jumping off a bridge, but when he finds a portal that could help change is future, he gets more than he bargains for. This was one of my favourite stories and whilst reading it I found Garret to be a self-indulgent petty person and he should have been grateful to have Terry as a friend. This story use the theme that there are consequences when you use time travel to change your past. A great ending which tied up this story perfectly.
Time’s Launch by Joe Pranaitis: Another Sci-fi theme. Captain Dyson was commanding the 1st ship with Time travel technology and on its maiden voyage, it all goes terribly wrong. This story had a Star-Trek feel to it, from the ship’s technology to the captain who is curious to investigate what is going on. I liked the idea that he found a source of information that would explain what went on with the ship and that the ending left it open for the reader to imagine what happened next, or is there more to this story.
The Salesman by DA Roach: Melanie had an accident and since that day she cannot forgive herself. After a chance meeting with a salesman can she move on with her life. The way the author told Melaine’s story had you willing the purchase to work. With every change to Melanie’s life explained, the twist at the end was a total surprise. A moving story, that you won’t want to finish.
One Cockroach left by Genevieve Moultrie: Ratsor, an alien botanist, was filming another species but after a nasty accident she stumbled on something that changed her whole attitude on life. Ratsor was a likeable character who due to her job loved to explore and valued life. The description of her land was beautifully written and you could imagine all the vibrant colours of the creatures that she saw. Yet another story that had a surprise ending but I could only imagine what happened after.
Time by Grace Charles: To aid the discussion between Space, Creation and Time the love story between Vida and Mort was used. This was a well written story, with love at first sight, a number of twist and an ending where you can imagine what happened next, this kept me turning the pages. The relationship between Vida and Mort was genuine and although complete opposites made a really great couple. A new author to me
Whispers of Forever by T Guthrie: Layla was summoned to her Great Aunt’s Victorian mansion, suffering with Déjà vu, can her visions and her fascination with the man of her dreams, help her solve the mystery. You are drawn into this story from the moment that you start to read, an old mansion, the creepy butler and the tragic deaths, having you wondering what Layla has let herself in for. The visions that Layla has help explain the story and the author has a way of keeping the secret till right at the end. Even with clues scattered throughout the story. I still did not guess, what/who had caused the tragedy. I am looking forward to reading more from this author
With a mixture of genres, it just goes to show that not all time travel is Sci-fi. This anthology should please the majority of genre lovers and if like me, you love finding new authors then this anthology is for you.

If you are looking for a time travel there are plenty of stories that will keep you up until all hours of the night. I was excited to get my hands on a early copy of this anthology because I just love time travel and I've read a few of the authors in the past and enjoyed by experience. I was blown away and was pretty intrigued by most of the stories. It was interesting to see some of the authors step out of their comfort zone and come up with interesting twists. I will briefly summarize what I liked about each story, trying not to give away spoilers, and which one was my favorite.
Lines of Time and Desire by J.L. Clayton
This story started the anthology off to a interesting twist. It is sexy and invokes some deep emotions inside of you. I liked the character development and thought it was well done in such a short time.
Homecoming by Carissa Ann Lynch
I was really excited to read this story. I have read Lynch before and I just adore her writing style. I was blown away by this story. It actually had me up and thinking about the characters and where else this story could go in the future. I'm just a big fan of Lynch.
A Web Through Time by Niki Livingston
This was an interesting space and time story. It had a theme of hope and acceptance. I really enjoyed this story because of the themes. This is a new author to me and I liked her writing style and character development. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Willow and the Forbidden Portal by Regina O'Connell
I loved this story because I'm a fantasy fan. It had an elements of magic and Ancients. I found this world to be the most interesting. The story flowed nicely and in a short amount of time you became attached to the main character. I look forward to reading more about this author.
Cassandra's Choice by Ashlee Shades
Now this story put me on the edge of my seat because of the concept. I fell in love with the snarky main character Cassandra and I appreciate how detailed the author went in to the pain of a migraine or megrim. It was a sweet tale and the ending made me so happy.
The Secrets Crows Keep by Bradon Nave
Holy Moly!! This is one twisted story. I'm a huge fan of this author so any opportunity to read something new from him is a little slice of heaven. This story was completely gross and twisted. I'm in constant awe on how demented this author's stories can get. So thank you for fulling my need for something deep and disturbing.
Bridging the Gap by Jeremy Simons
This story has everything you would expect in a great time travel story. This is one of my favorites out of the whole anthology. It touched on a sadness that at some point in time most people can relate to. You become attached to the main characters Terry and Garrett. You are pulling for everything to be fixed. It was perfect and even shocking at the ending. I loved the writing style and look forward to reading more books by this author because I enjoyed his storytelling abilities.
Time's Launch by Joe Pranaitis
This is a fast paced story that will keep you guessing. The story flowed naturally and it really made you think. Could you imagine traveling on a time ship? Oh how cool does that sound? The author captured my sense of imagination and I could easily imagine that I was this time ship with Captain Joseph Dyson. I feel like this story could be expanded and turned in to a great novel or even series.
The Salesman by D.A. Roach
The tagline alone intrigued me. "If you had the chance to change the one regret you had in life, would you?" If that doesn't make you want to read it than I don't know what will. This story made me sob. It was so well written and flowed so naturally. I'm getting choked up even thinking about it. It is the type of story that you will never forget and that is why it is my favorite in the anthology when it had tough competition.
One Cockroach Left by Genevieve Moultrie
This is author has a great imagination. I was absolutely in love with the world and setting that she choose. It is what made it a fascinating read. I would love to talk about more but I don't want to throw in spoilers and ruin it for you. It was well written and interesting concept.
Time by Grace Charles
I quickly fell in love with this story. Time time time. It had a theme of love and sacrifice. The characters were lovable and I couldn't stop thinking about it. It was sweet and heart breaking. It had all the elements I look forward to in a short story.
Whispers of Forever by T. Guthrie
It is a great fantasy/time travel story. It was really good. I loved how the fantasy was more important to follow with time travel and a hint of supernatural. It was fantastic. I loved the setting of Willow Manor which was a character in itself. I look forward to reading more from this author because I enjoyed the writing style and the way the author captured suspense.
My favorite was The Salesman by D.A. Roach
"If you had the chance to change the one regret you had in life, would you?" An interesting question. It is a tale of be careful what you wish for. The story flowed perfectly. The main character Melanie is easy to relate to as she struggles to clear her head and get some restful sleep. Anxiety is a big part of her life.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves tales of time. It is an entertaining collection.
I highly recommend this book a thousand times over. I have only read one other anthology with this many authors and this one is by far the better one. Although each story was about time travel, each was individualized. No repetitive story lines here.
