In Virtual Evil, the story picks up a few weeks after the end of the first book. Jack the Ripper is still at large, but has stopped killing for now. The anarchists' plot was interrupted, but their threat is more real than ever, and not as simple as it seems. John Keats is badly injured and now an anarchist target. Alastair is grumpy, over-protective and having career troubles, and Cynda is still at the heart of dangerous events, unable to return to her time before the mess of 1888 is fixed. In t ...more

Second in Series

This second book in series is keeping the momentum going in the storyline with lots of action, twists and turns. A really great read looking forward to the next.

While I thought Virtual Evil didn't quite live up to Sojourn, and while I found that it began rather slowly - it felt like a mid-book lull, paving the way before things explode - it slowly got its hooks into me and then got thoroughly under my skin. A tense, entertaining, enjoyable read.

In a lot of ways, I felt Virtual Evil was too obviously a Book #2. It picked up from the events of Sojourn with the sense that the reader should remember everything that happened in the first book. While I don't

Jacynda Lassiter is continuing her time travelling adventure in 1888, but she has orders to locate the greatest of all Time Rovers and send him back to 2057 without his consent. It's a catch-22 situation. If she does as she is ordered, she will be labelled a traitor by her contemporaries; if she doesn't, she'll be sent to prison for a decade.
Meanwhile, Jonathon Keats is still looking for an Irish anarchist and the missing explosives. With his inability to use his shape-shifting, Keats's troubles

I enjoyed this one and loved who Defoe turned out to be! The plot is thickening with 1888 not proceeding as it should be and TPB and Guv at war with the Rovers caught in the middle.

I still love Alistair and Keats! We find out that Keats timeline isn't progressing the way it should, or that of the murdered women in the book. It wasn't mentioned if Alastair's lifeline is off as well but it appears that Jacynda is to blame for Keats timeline being messed up, though I wonder if it's really her faul

Finished the entire trilogy on this date. Do not have or will buy the hard back or paperback, but this trilogy will be reread when I am a bit down and need some escape. I enjoyed the plot, the characters, and bits of interesting facts. I always enjoy a book that makes me wonder if a fact is true. the wonderment causes me to look things up on the net. then I silently curse the author when I travel down the rabbit hole and find related history or facts that spark my interest. loved the fact that t ...more

This book's ending is definitely exciting. was hard to put it down. The beginning was kind of slow, like all mystery type/find out what happens books.

I think this book is a bit better than the first. It describes more of what is happening (in terms of time travel)... makes the premise more acceptable. The previous book had it hard for me to suspend disbelief on the whole time traveling thing. (I guess it is more of a plot device here, getting from one point to another and giving the whole "every

Fun continuation, but I felt it was too long. A lot of it felt like a rehashing of the first novel. The plot becomes more complex and new players enter the field.

I pretty much read the third novel right after I finished this one, so I'm having a hard time separating what happened in the second. :)

I'll leave it simple: It's a good story.

I was looking for something quite light and easy to read after tackling some epic Ken Follett and Jana Oliver did not let me down. Time travel that puts the heroine right in the middle of Jack the Ripper's Victorian London and into her own mystery. Really enjoyable. I think I'd love to be doing a bit of time tourism myself. Hmmm, where to go?

I did not finish this. Somehow, the fact that book one dealt with Jack the Ripper, the murders and violence seemed part and parcel of the whole story. However, when book two seemed to go on in that vein and even upped the ante (Nicci and her "meetings" and the pathology of violent crimes....'scuse me while I barf). I don't want to go on reading.

I'd say this is somewhere between a 3 and a 4, but settling on a three seemed too mean. There were a few points where I was confused about the details and what was going on (there is a lot to keep up with in this trilogy!) but mostly I really enjoyed it.

Full review coming soon.

And the adventures through time continue. Cynda is trying to put everything right in 1888 but someone keeps sabotaging everything. The timeline is stretching further away from where it should be and the consequences could be catastrophic. Can she help Alastair and John or will she run out of time?

I loved this book. The ending killed me. I'm waiting on pins and needles for the 3 book to come out this fall. Fall seems so far away.

I believe I read this book pretty much straight away after the other one was finished.

However I haven't bought or read the 3rd..

1888 plot lines work well, and seem far more coherent then the 2057 plot.

Cliff Hanger Alert! You'll love this one, but warning: buy the third before you get to the ending, or you'll be hating yourself.
