Title: Time Warper: Fated
Series: Sage Hannigan, #1
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Date published: October 6, 2015
Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn't been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be?
All she has to do is:
1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.
Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper, and she never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.
At the beginning I was a little thrown off as I was trying to understand everything. It wasn't anything super complicated, but also nothing I was used to reading in paranormal stories. (Originality is always a plus in my book!)
Once I had a grasp on everything, it flowed much easier. The one thing about this story that peeved me is that I felt it tried a little too hard, vocabulary-wise. Now, there's nothing wrong with using a thesaurus to improve the content of a story... And it wasn't as if any of the words were misused. But it just felt awkward for me.
I did like many of the characters, but I felt a couple of them weren't explained as much as I would have liked. Travis, for example.
I finished this one fairly quickly, and I did really enjoy it. There's a lot going on, and it is easy to follow for the most part.
Most of the end of it I kept saying, "What the actual fluff?!" Because of reasons. And as soon as I finished it, I had to start book 2... Holy fluff balls, is why.
Anyway, this book was pretty awesome. I did really like reading this, so I don't have to beat the other two platypires for their insolence. I've already started book 2 before I began this review, because I needed to find out what would happen next.
