Format: Kindle edition
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.
There were times that I wanted to shake Aldwin because he was being mysterious and it was obvious he had some sort of secret. We get to the end, and we still don't get to find out what he's hiding because of Sage. Curse you Sage! I'm hoping we get to find out what his secret is in the next book.
I like Sage, but there were times where I wanted to smack her, especially where Soren is concerned. And as for Soren, I can't really say I like him. Sure, he's got the vampire thing going for him, but to me that isn't enough. Maybe it's because I'm #TeamAldwin.
As to who the villain of the book, I was not expecting it to be who it was. It's always those who appear innocent who tend to be the whack-jobs. Honestly, I almost thought Sage wasn't gonna make it.
That ending though...I knew it was going to happen, but I didn't want it to. Good thing I've bought book 2 already! Fated gets 4 Platypires!
