Great Paranormal!

Rebecca Royce is a new to me author. I've heard wonderful things about her books. It has been such a long time since I've read anything paranormal I decided to give Love Beyond Time a try. My initial thoughts after delving into this book...Why the heck haven't I been reading paranormal?!

Ms. Royce's writing style is smooth, succinct, and carries you along effortlessly. I felt as though I was cozied up around a fire hanging on her every word as she tells this absorbing tale of a w

Probably won't work for me since hero has been having sex with others, despite knowing he has a soulmate out there, while she is a virgin. Bummer. This series sounded SO good!!

Love Beyond Time is a FANTASTIC read, I couldn’t put it down! The plot is excellent and the story kept getting better and better as I turned the pages. I thought it very original and fresh with a lot of adventure.

You feel like wanting to know what will happen to those characters cause there’s an infinity of possibilities. And they’re all so captivating! The only thing that bothered me is that the characters are almost 30 years old, and even though they’re young for their species, they live in th

Supernatural served up hot
About thirty years ago nineteen children were all born on the same day, at the same time, some premature, some past due, all prophesized. Eighteen are the last of the Outsiders, a race of supernaturally charged defenders of humanity. One is pure evil born to a human set of parents. He brought about the death of all the other Outsiders except the eighteen and one guardian meant to keep them all safe. Spells gone awry and only three of the babies end up with the guardian.

Rebecca Royce has done it again. Her incredibly creative mind has brought the world another unique story, species and universe.

The Outsiders are an old race that have always existed on the outskirts of society. Fighting evil, they’ve protected the world for generations without regular humans knowing they existed. They have a slew of extraordinary powers including telepathy, manipulating the elements, time travel and more.

Love Beyond Time, the first in The Outsiders series, has it all; love, lust

Love Beyond Time is the first in The Outsiders series by Rebecca Royce. As with any new world there is a tendency to info dump to bring you up to speed about what folks can and can’t do in this series. Ms. Royce avoids this but it made the book feel like one of those rides at the amusement park where you slowly climb up just to rush screaming to the bottom. The first part of this story was a little slow but totally necessary to get to the good parts. You have the classic battle between good and ...more

The Outsiders are a secret race of people that live among the humans protecting them from the Darkness. They keep the balance. Each individual has special powers and each has another half, a soul mate. Years ago it was prophesied that the Darkness would take an earthly form, more powerful than ever before and would destroy them. The earth's only hope is a group of 18 children all born on the same day as the evil one/Sebastian. Destined to fight this great evil the babies were hidden away as the ...more

This is book one in a series and should be read in order because they play off each other.
Veli was placed in charged of 18 babies born at the same time and was to fight evil when they grow up. Problem was evil was born too and he came with all his powers and knew the plan. It was to distroy the others.
At the last moment thier powerful leader sent these babies to Veli the darkness sent his power out too. Only 3 of the 18 showed up. Now Veli had to run with the babies and try to find the others.

Interesting story

I found this story different and interesting. About 30 years ago, 18 babies were supposed to be transported to Veli, an Outsider warrior, who was given the task to care and protect them from evil forces. But the transfer was interrupted and 15 babies were lost in the world. Years later, four more of those babies now adults have been found but not all as it should be. Evil has been trying to corrupt two of the Outsiders and one wants nothing to do with e fight against evil. I rea

Wow!! I have to say- starting with Wings of Artemis and then continuing with The Cascade and last but not least reading the Warrior I thought: I love the author but this I'm not so sure about!

But holy cow! I absolutely love the story of Kal and Isabelle, and of course the other Outsiders!! I started the book, and couldnt put it down!! Try it, it will not dissapoint!

This would probably be more like 3.5 stars. I liked it. It was just overly wordy but I'm hopeful that the rest of the series will be less so now that we understand the backstory. I do plan to read the rest of the series. I actually really like stories with fated soulmates. I like secure love stories.

Good read

I enjoyed the story enough to move on to the second book. I have read this author before and enjoyed her writing style. I have previously read her Westervelt Wolves series... twice.

For those who need to know, yes, there is Insta-love, but they are soulmates, it is expected.

I struggled with this book. It was hard for me to get into this book. I did enjoy it, but it took me a while to read it. I can’t even pinpoint why I couldn’t get into it. The storyline and characters were interesting.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Apparently all the supernatral like to hang out on islands off the coast of Maine. Between Westervelt and now the Outsiders that seems the place to be. The start of another great seires from Rebecca. I can't wait to learn more about the outsiders and follow everyone as they find Their mates.

Let me start by saying that I love most of Rebecca Royce’s books. I was introduced to her writing with the Westervelt Wolves and have since read several other series by her that I have enjoyed. That is why it is so difficult to not give this first book in The Outsiders series a stellar rating but I had a really difficult time with it.

I had no clue what I was getting into when I started reading Love Beyond Time. Before I was halfway through, I was praying there were more books.. and not just one or two more.. oodles and oddles! I'm not ready to walk away from this "world".

This book/series focuses on a race of humans that call themselves Outsiders. They were created to maintain balance between good and evil.. to not let evil get the upper hand and take over the world.

There have been many stories about how good and evil co-exist in the world and that there needs to be a balance. It is a good balance of science fiction and romance. I really like romance with my science fiction so it is perfect for me.

In this series, the author has a group of Outsiders that are responsible for keeping evil in balance. Around thirty years ago, a major battle occurred and the group was almost totally wiped out. Eighteen infants were born right before the battle and one infant was

Love Beyond Time is the first book in The Outsiders series by Rebecca Royce. There was only one part that I had a problem with and that was the Prologue. I know that it was needed to give insight into just who the Outsiders were and where they came from. This part, however, was a little confusing and hard to follow. I urge everyone to get past that issue, because the book is well worth the read. There is much to learn about these people who are human, but different. They have been tasked from bi ...more

This story has a really complex back story and prologue so allow yourself sometime to submerge yourself in the background. It is worth it, it really helps to cement yourself in the world created which is not your average PNR/Sci Fi storyline.

Outsiders are human but with a few little added extras! When a great evil is unleashed a prophecy determines that 18 children will aid Good and one will embody the evil unleashed. The leader of the outsiders attempts to save the children by sending them to

I’ll admit it – the new covers on this re-release drew me to the book. I usually have to be in a certain frame of mind for science fiction/fantasy type stories, and when I started reading I wasn’t sure I would be able to finish it at this time. However, once I got through the prologue the characters story drew me in entirely.

Poor tortured Kal, his life started out on the same rotten level as the other Outsiders, but his never improved. In fact, while their ‘guardian’ Veli seemed to suppress all
