A strong time travel novel The characters and setting were very cool and I liked the way Lively manipulated the multiple timelines On the down side, there were a few too many characters and the pace dragged a bit in the middle There s also a huge exposition dump at the end, but I m kind of ok with it because it s all information that I wanted to know anyway.Side Note I haven t read the sequel and I don t see why this book needs one , but based on the description, I m very confused The Time Trait [...]

I am so happy I ended p purchasing Padget Lively s first book I m always interested in new authors, but to be honest, I also get often disappointed Not this time Lively s book is amazing, a real page turner I bought it just before my trip to home that is Europe and though this will be a nice in flight novel to read, but guess what I spent almost every night lying on my old bed reading it It is light, but well written, easy but smart story I m really looking forward to the new book, can t wait to [...]
I received this book for an honest review from the First Reads program I m not going to lie to you, this book dragged I received it in October and I had too much going on to read it When I got back to it in January, I found myself picking it up and putting it back down Maybe it was the protagonist she felt like a fictional character When I really love a book, I forget that the characters are fictional But I received the second book in the series as well, and I m hoping I ll get lost in it.
A great mix of action, time travel and a touch of romance A vast array of delightful characters from ballerinas and Inn owners to Hindu and Chinese mystics, from a young street waif to Benjamin Franklin, all of whom are painted with bold strokes Conspiracy and intrigue abound Spies and assassins are on the loose All in all, it s an extremely well written and edited, wholly compelling read.
I won this book in a drawing.A time travel novel about a young woman whose brother invented a time machine He is manipulated into using it so a rich guy can regain his family fortune, which creates a sort of dark future Victorian age The young woman, a dancer must make things right, by travelling to the regency age and preventing an assassination.Not bad, if a bit PC for my tastes.
Odette Speex will leave you wanting It is an adventurous tale of time travel that will hopefully lead to fixing a wronged future Padgett Lively has the ability to take such a difficult topic of time travel and turn it into a well written story that will keep you engaged throughout A must read
I really enjoyed this book It had a little bit of a bunch of things that I like history, time travel and it was a little steam punky because of the alternate time line Odette and Cara were good strong personalities I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Good book, I can t get it out of my head A dream of seven years Everyday I have this And sometimes I wake up and I don t know where I am I don t talk to anybody Sometimes a day a week I can t put it out of my mind.
I won this book in a give away Thank you.I liked this book, but sometimes I found it a little confusing to follow the timelines and the concept of people being in multiple places in time.
This book was so hard to put down I am a huge fan of realistic fiction This book was fast paced and full of what if s that helped me enjoy the time traveling adventure Get this for your summer car ride
Excellent read Very well written Cannot wait for the sequel
2.5 stars.Not worth recommending but I don t regret the read.
