Baxter Jacobs just survived the worst Sweet Sixteen in history: buried in a coffin, hunted down by assassins, and losing almost everything that mattered to her. She’s ready for some normalcy, but “normal” won’t play any part of this Time Bender’s future.
Now that the immediate threat is over, Baxter learns just how much the English Council expects of the newest Interred. The pressure has her seriously considering her uncle’s offer to take her to New York, especially since she thinks it will keep her Healer, Jack, from overusing his abilities. Knowing the New York Council’s ranks are filled with beings using dark powers, however, makes her hesitate.
Before she can choose, the decision is wrenched from her. Fissures in Time result in a new battle with an old enemy. Someone she thought she’d lost reenters her life, and she’ll discover a web of lies woven into the fabric of Time…lies only she can unravel. Baxter will have to use her growing abilities to try and reveal the truth, even if it forever changes the reality she knows.
Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.
To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.
Hello everyone!! When I saw the cover of this first book, I was curious to know what was hiding those hands and that clock , without doubt, the story behind this cover is very good.
It is a magical world and a well made, original story , with good characters actors , filled with many emotions and a clear and light writing.
The magic is present and will hand our protagonist Baxter , Our female protagonist, who gets her magical powers she turns sixteen eleven . Is determined and has a good grasp of sarcasm . And his way in this saga is about to begin , is a strong main character and very well run . You win from the start.
Besides the adventure behind the magic of Baxter, will be Declan and Jack. They will be willing to care for or want something more with Baxter, and time differently , and of course way into history.
I like the way that has story , is very imaginative , full of other fun moments of excitement and others with unexpected turns , that includes the end. It has a unique and distinctive style .
My Stars 4
In this second book we provide more twists and a significant change in the history of Baxter, we have more action.
Without leaving aside what had already been achieved with the first book, the author fills us with more intrigue mystery, emotion and of course the occasional funny moment with Baxter and his sarcasm.
The characters we already knew in the first book, evolucionarion gradually and significantly. And new characters take their position to go deeper into the world and fight against the enemy.
I loved the book, I definitely like it light, and keep the line work on the first book, but evolve in a meaningful way. The creation of this world and its characters is very clear and well maintained. It is a YA book you should add it to your wish list for reading.
P.S. I am waiting the 3rd book
