“It had a National Treasure feel to it.” ~ Under the Covers
Using time travel, Esta and Harte are on a mission to retrieve the Book of Mysteries and elemental stones which may be the key to saving the magical world. Only now, there are so many other things at play. There’s magic they cannot control, old and new foes, and they are doing it outside of their time realm. Not to mention, they are without their mentor to guide them.
The action and excitement throughout the book stayed the same for the most part. Esta and Harte are in constant danger and their situations had my heart racing. I love the back and forth of the time travel and different POVs kept the pace pretty fast. However, parts of the story dragged a little. I was hoping for more development in Esta and Harte’s relationship but they seem to keep ignoring the feelings they have for each other. The search for the stones and book also dragged a little. I felt like the search slowed the progress of the story. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy this book. It had a National Treasure feel to it. I like the world the author had created and I am looking forward to seeing what will happen next.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
