I honestly don’t even know where to start with this review. There is simply nothing not to love about this book, about the author, about her personal story, or the fact that she is another Arizonian. Everything is spot on, it is running on all cylinders, and all signs point to yes. Lets start with the book itself.
From the Back of the Book
“Time-travel romance based in the late 1500’s in the India region of the world. Epic romance with a warrior princess meeting the love of her life. Unfortunately, he’s an American soldier from the 1960’s and the king from a neighboring country. This is book one in the “time series.””
Okay so the back of the book doesn’t give away much. You have Tamea, the princess; who also is the youngest warrior in her country. Then we have King Parker who shows up, but he may not be who he says he is. There is magic, there is romance, there is plot twists that you won’t see coming, there is time travel. There is nothing not to like.
It is exceptionally well written. The characters unfold to perfection. You get to know each of them, know their strengths and weakness, each one of them you will get to know inside out. And just when you think that you know everything there is to know about them, you get a little zinger with new information. The setting is well laid out, she really does a great job of showing you where it all takes place. Yes there are a few historical inaccuracies, but come on, do you really know what life was like in the 1500’s? Nope, I didn’t think so.
Let me put this out there, I am in no way a fan of sci-fi, I am not really into time travel; and this book was so amazing that I couldn’t get enough. And at the Kindle price of only $0.99 it is one that you should certainly read. Like now! Be prepared to curl up with a blanket, a cup of tea, and dive into this story.
About the Author
P.J. Hultstrand is a genuinely nice person. She is helpful, encouraging, and a wealth of information. That she is willing to pass on to newbie authors/bloggers like myself. After getting her book, and reading the preface, she is also an open book. I love how she explains how this book was started, what triggered it to be finished, and how her characters changed based on the changes that she was encountering in her personal life. Not only do we get to know the characters in her books; she opens up and lets us see who she is.
Do you read sci-fi or time traveling books? So you like knowing about the author’s personal life or are you a dive into the story alone, type of reader? What are your thoughts about books that have modern day characters traveling back in time? Let me know.
