Time is the enemy.

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminat

I've read the other books in the trilogy and was looking forward to this final adventure. This is not a stand-alone, since the story and characters build on the happenings of the other books.

To stop the evil Soulless from existing, Alexia goes back 500 years in time, leaving the love of her life behind and knowing that she will not return. While searching/waiting for the moment to complete her mission, she finds herself leading her people as they attempt to survive eradication. When another wor

Being reacquainted with these characters and reemerging in this story was great fun. I was greeted by Crystal Collier's magical way with words that I admired while reading Moonless and Soulless.

In the third and final installment of this trilogy, Alexia has gone back in time (500 years) to stop the Soulless from becoming. The Soulless were once Passionate, but now they are "undying monsters who live in the darkness" and drain the Passionate of their vitality, turning them into Soulless creatures.

Buckle up for another journey into the Maiden of Time Series! In this third installment of the trilogy, Alexia travels through time, battling the forces of the Knights Templar, all the while worrying about her child to-be and the balance between the forces of the Soulless and the Passionate. I found the plot lively and engaging. Some of the shorter chapters were a bit different from what I’m accustomed to in novels, but it gives the story more of a movie-scene feel, which may appeal to readers. ...more

If you are new to the Maiden of Time series—DO NOT read Timeless. Not because it isn’t fantastic in every sense—it is. Not because it has serious flaws in plot, pace, or characterization—it doesn’t. But because you deserve the whole experience. And you’re SO much luckier than me. I had to wait for each new volume to come out, wondering what was happening with my series friends. In my review of the first book of this series, Moonless, (and yes, I’m sorry, but you really should read Book 1 first), ...more

With this final instalment in the Maiden of Time trilogy, events for Alexia come full circle in a way that, without wanting to give too much away, feels very satisfying. I love time travel stories, and the way this wraps up was very nicely done, although at no point does it feel like anything is guaranteed. I definitely feel this was the strongest book of the series, with a sense of urgency that hardly lets up throughout, fuelled by several motivating factors: Alexia's mission to prevent the bir ...more

This review is part of the Timeless blog tour.


Alexia is a heroine unlike any other. She is a hybrid of a human man and a woman of a race called the Passionate. Passionate are nearly immortal creatures. Each has special powers: the ability to heal, the ability transport people, the ability to influence minds. Alexia controls time itself. She could turn the clock back a little to prevent a calamity. She could stop

I am going to start by saying there is one AWFUL thing about Timeless, book three in the Maiden of Time series. I hate to be negative, but this just has to be said:


Other than that, this is one fabulous book, and it was well worth the wait. Author Crystal Collier has really grown as a writer and readers are in for a real treat with what she does with her characters and settings. Main character Alexia has turned into an arse-kicking, save-

Timeless is the third book in the Maiden of Time Trilogy. Nineteen year old Alexia, uses her ability to control time to go back 500 years from the year 1768, where the first book of the series begins. Her goal is to stop the evil Soulless from ever having been created.

As with the previous two books, the world building is well done. The flowery words vividly describe the setting, and the reader can feel the tension of the battle scenes and the emotion involved in all of the conflicts.

I can't even begin to explain how I feel about this book. It's been 14 years in the making, the seeds having been planted 9 years before that.

The series is complete.

I should leave it at that, right? But I can't. These characters have been living in my head for decades. Their story is no longer just mine to enjoy. I'm going to miss the sweet romance between Alexia and Kiren, Miles's smug moments, Bellezza's petty rage, Sarah's uppity attitude, John's jolly manner, Lester's crotchety refrains...

Timeless is the third in a trilogy of books about Alexia, the Maiden of Time. If you haven't read the first two, I recommend starting with book #1 and going all the way through. You'll want to know the backstory on these characters, even though you can read this one without reading the others. I was drawn into this story of a pregnant, time traveling, kick-butt heroine. Crystal knows how to draw the suspense out to keep you reading all the way to the end. I found myself whipping through the book ...more

wow just wow. Normally the trilogy third book can feel rushed and forced to complete but this one is complete. Complete in plot, structure, world building, danger, surprises, twists and turns and character building. We get the characters we know and love such as Alexia and Kiren. We get the soulless but we also get new ones like Deamus. And he is a character. Mysterious but also unusual. Never really know to much abut him. There is time travel, love that spans through time and and a deeper under ...more

Timeless is the third book of the Maiden of time Trilogy. In this book, Alexia finds herself 500 years in the past. Leaving behind her family and friends to try to stop the evil soulless from ever being created.

The whole trilogy has excellent world building which hooks you in. Filled with plenty of action and adventure as well as some fantastic emotional scenes. I found it very exciting and hard to put down.

I loved seeing how far Alexia has come since we first meet her. While at times I found K

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

It's so sad to see this series come to an end. I loved getting to know a younger, different Kiren. Seeing them fall in love all over again? It was intoxicating. This book had a little more of a thriller feel to it than I remember the last books having, which I loved. I think it needed that to truly let you in on the gravity of the situation that these characters are in. It kept me gripping the book right down to the last pages. It was bittersweet in many ways,

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel back in time? I have, thinking how neat it would be to meet my ancestors and see how they lived. Or how about traveling to the future and see what the world would be like hundreds of years from now. Would you still be you in another time? Interesting to think about. If time travel, adventure, magic, and very interesting people intrigue you then take a look at Author Crystal Collier’s latest novel TIMELESS, Book Three in the Maiden of Time Tr ...more

Too often, by the time an author gets to the third book in a trilogy, the plot becomes a bit redundant and less interesting; and the characters, been-there, done-that stale. Can't say that about THIS book! If anything, I think Ms. Collier's writing skills have gotten even better, and the story has become even more imaginative and interesting.

This book puts less emphasis on the bone-chilling aspects of the Soulless, and more on the heart-warming, selfless, and romantic relationships between frie

I love that this story is about a pregnant woman leading battles and kicking butt. She's gone back in time to save her people, and she's determined to get the job done. There's a sweet romance, too. Collier puts an interesting twist on reviving the romance in a series after the couple have already gotten together. Plus, I just really love how all the characters have different magical powers - the main character manipulates time, others can shield themselves in darkness or travel in mist, etc. Ve ...more

I've been waiting for this book, and I wasn't at all disappointed. This story was a satisfying end to a great trilogy. I give Crystal high marks for creating a society of beings inside our world that are both unique and believable. I think it's this aspect of the story that I like most. Each character has powers and limits- character strengths and flaws. Even the heroine is not perfect. She suffers from indecision about the relationship with her true love (which strikes the interesting question- ...more
