This review is actually a review of two books at the same time. Why two? Well because the author/publisher made the decision to put the first two books of the series into one binding. That being the case, I figured if you're going to buy it as one, it should be reviewed as one! So, let's go, shall we?
The Good: I really enjoyed the story telling in these books. From the romance to the action, the books kept me engaged. I appreciated how realistic the characters were and how badass Tamea was. It can be tough to find really strong female lead characters and there is no doubt that Tamea is about as strong as they come.
The Bad: It's not entirely historically accurate. There is quite a bit of reference to the Christian religion which wouldn't have been there in the 1500s. I also really dislike how the publisher chose to bind this book. It was created so that when you finished Time Conquers All, you have to close the book, flip it over and then start reading Rescue in Time. This means that you have two covers but nowhere on the book do you have a synopsis of either book. It's also a minor inconvenience when you're reading along and suddenly you have to flip the book over. I should also mention that while this is listed as two books, it really isn't. This originally was one large book that the author chopped down into parts and so the endings of both books don't read like endings or even endings with further volumes to come. They read as if it's one book.
The Summary: I know that my bad section was far longer than my good section but don't let that fool you. This is a great story that I'm hoping to finish and review for you here. That's all up to the publisher, though! Oops! I didn't mention that there are two more segments to this book! Well, now I have and now you know. If you like some romance mixed in with your action then either check out the book on Amazon or over on its website!
Edit: Just a quick note. When I went looking on Amazon for the edition that I have, it doesn't appear to be available. I also discovered that there are actually 10 books in this series according to book 1's website.
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments, and opinions are my own.
