    Meet Gemma, a teenager who really is different from all of the others around her. So much so, she secludes herself. Gemma can travel through time - in fact - her whole family can. This is a secret that has been passed through generations and centuries, and something that they all keep very quiet about. But when Harrison finds himself running from a spot of trouble, and ends up hiding in the same spot as Gemma, something engages between them, and he just can't stop thinking about her. This attraction to her becomes almost obsessive, and as Harrison chases her, Gemma runs. Reluctanctly. She knows that she is not allowed to enter into a relationship with a normal human, but for some reason, she just can't resist Harrison's charm and wit. And neither can the reader. None of this bodes too well for either character. As their attraction grows, so does the danger surrounding them, until it's almost too late. I suggest picking up this book for a good read. It's entertaining, engaging, and has some great characters. You can feel these characters growing with strength as you turn each page. But you also fear for them as you see the dark underbelly of the past looming before them. A fabulous first book in the trilogy, that sets up the rest of the Time Spirit Trilogy nicely. Well done Ms. Pearl - you are on your way to a 5 star debut trilogy. I'll be a fan for life :-)

    Betrayal by those you love is something that hurts the most. That is what Gemma experiences when her parents intervene in something close to Gemma, because they have her best interests at heart. What Gemma doesn’t realise is that it is all for their own gain. They want their daughter to be solely focussed of them, and their needs of her. I just love the way that Gemma and Gabe’s relationship forms. There are snippets in there that can be confusing to Gemma, but that are so sentimental to Gabe. You, as the reader, wonder what on earth he has been doing all of her life… Yes, Harrison is trusting of him, and that seriously upsets Gemma, but without that trust, she never would have had the guts to go against her own family code and trust a stranger. Melissa Pearl has done an amazing job with the second book of the Time Spirit Trilogy. Personally, I feel that this book is even better than the first, but without the first, the story would be incomplete. (Don’t get me wrong – I really LOVED the first book as well!) I can’t wait to read the final instalment! I simply have to know what on earth is going on with certain character motivations.
