Probably more like a 3.5 stars.

When I first heard about Time Reavers, I jumped right on it, because I'm game for any time travel book. Time Reavers is more about controlling/stopping time than it is about traveling to the past or future, but from the very first chapter we are thrown into the action of the Time Reaver world, and the pace never really slows down.

The heroine, Nicole, is a misfit high school student, struggling with self-confidence, who is catapulted into the hidden world of time be

Time Reavers is a quick paced, action packed YA read. It is filled with suspense, dynamic characters, twists, and plenty of action with enough quirkiness to make the characters interesting, without being too out there. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes the Hourglass Series (by Myra McEntire) or the Maze Runner Series (James Dashner). I can't wait to read the rest of the series! ...more

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book through the Goodreads first reads program. This has in no way affected my opinion of the quality of this work.

How is this an indie book?! It's been so long since I've read something that made me feel like my head was going to explode from shear amazing bookness(Yes, I know it's not a word, but this is the only way I can express how I'm feeling).

So, in no real order, this is what I loved:

Well, I only got halfway through the book, but I'm pretty bored, honestly. The pacing really isn't my cup of tea; there's so much introduced in each chapter and always something big showing up in the next for a quick fight scene that what the characters have just experienced loses its importance. There's an attempt being made to show the size and scope of events through world travel, but none of the locations seem important enough to describe (or maybe Nicole just doesn't pay that much attention ...more

This book was an amazing read. It's always refreshing to have some awesome sci-fi set in a current day with modern references. The premise was amazing, and I'm really hoping there's more. In a world where time can stop and things can get you without you even knowing when, where, or how it can happen, definitely worth a read! Glad Holo and I are on the same bun of the cheeseburger!

Just so you know, I did win this book free on and I am very glad I entered. Definitely going to kee

Time Reavers is a fantasy novel about metallic insectoids with the ability to freeze time and the similarly-enabled humans who fight them. The main character, Nicole, is a 16-year-old girl on a school trip in Russia when she discovers the existence of the "Reavers" and her own special abilities, useful only in a "Tao Freeze", when everything and everyone around her on the train platform stops moving. She follows the lone voice in the silent underground station to a young man who, like her, is ab ...more
Time manipulators, a secret society based in the secret city of Chronopolis, and the Reavers (giant bugs) make this a hell of a fun ride! Nicole unexpectedly finds out that she can manipulate time while on a class trip to Russia. There she meets Daniel, a friendly guy with a sword in a trench coat who slays these gigantic bugs. And that’s just the start. I was caught up in this tale right away and the party continued the whole way through the book.

First, Nicole was an easy character to like. She

The very first thing that came to mind when I started this audiobook was that Tess Irondale is one heck of a narrator. She had a rocking good story to work with but she goes way above and beyond most narrators. I have my favorites and, consistently, they all do terrific voices, distinctively and with energy and clear understanding of the characters. Ms. Irondale takes it a step further by doing amazing vocalization of other sounds; in this case, the story is full of roars and screeches

Time reavers by Jacob Holo.
That’s what sixteen-year-old Nicole Taylor learns when a mysterious time-bending stranger saves her from a rampaging cyborg centipede.
A good read. I loved the cover. It was different. But I did find it slow. 4*.

This was a great and fascinating read. There were a couple errors the editor(s) missed, but it didn't take away from the story, not pull me out.

I'm gonna look for more.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jacob Holo. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

The premise of the book was interesting and if you like urban fantasy, this book will be up your alley. The pacing was good- it kept the plot going at a nice pace. Overall, the writing was also pretty good at describing events that would otherwise be difficult to imagine. And the characters are

In Time Reavers, I got a good sense of what the Reavers creatures looked like, as well as their size, which varies immensely. Sound also played a big role, and the narrator did a fantastic job bringing that to life for listeners.

Let's talk a bit about the characters, especially Nicole, the main character. She's a teen female protagonist who Holo captured beautifully. She is likable, yet still reacts in a way that is realistic given the circumstances. She's not whiny, nor does she become overly c

A fast-paced and action-packed read, with a strong female protagonist. Jacob Holo manages to capture the reader's attention immediately. I found it refreshing that this was a book with a teenage girl as the lead, but we weren't forced to worry about teenage angst or romance. (I love romance books and books with romance as an element, but I also enjoy seeing girls act independently without focusing on a male love interest all the time...especially when the world is in danger!)
