I feel that Timekeeper Rising is worth 4.5 stars.. I don't want to just give it 4 stars because I feel it is worth more.
I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review...
Timekeeper Rising is a well developed paranormal dystopian. I loved the twist with the good vs. evil. The people prayed for someone to save them after the Earth was destroyed, and were sent the Shunned. The Shunned are fallen angels that rule everyone's life by time.
Iris knows that she is different. She has

I was so glad to have picked up this book at The Dayton Book Expo. The blurb was great, and it's such a unique take on Angels and Demons. The first chapter was a lot of information to take in, but as soon as the plot is propelled forward in the second chapter, I knew it wouldn't take me long to read. Our protagonist, Iris, knowing she is doomed to die her entire life, is joined by a group of friends that help her learn more her past and powers, and also teach her about the many kinds of love and ...more

Timekeeper Rising sucked me in from page one and kept me reading wayyyyy past my bedtime, which rarely happens. I value my sleep with the same vigor as I value air and coffee.

This book was so creepy and awesome. It reminded me a bit of an M. Night Shymalan movie, kind of like The Village. Iris and Sage are travelling through the woods, trying to remain hidden from The Shunned. The

This is a great beginning to a debut series. This is a classic good vs. evil YA dystopian series. Have to say it's for a sure wicked world and when people wanted hope they got the Shunned. Which of course are fallen angels.

The character development is there and hopefully goes more in depth in the next installment. Irish is the leading character who is a great one. Knowing she is different. Sage hasn't quite grown on me yet so we'll see if the next one he does. I do love the interactions between

Timekeeper Rising is really such a good book, and I cannot wait for the next book. It is rather intriguing from the start and keeps you hooked all the way until the oh so dreaded, yet wonderfully written, cliff hanger at the end. Totally worth the read as there are so many great and well developed characters. I definitely recommend it!
