3.5 stars — to start my review, let’s talk about how much I loved the setting! Being from the US, it was someplace that I am not familiar with at all. Maybe one day I’ll have the chance to visit. Anyway, I appreciated the locations and the lingo, and I feel like I learned a lot.

I also really love the thought and creativity that went into creating the world of the Reigntime creatures. It’s so intricate and detailed, so call me impressed! I felt that sometimes too much of the book was information

He slowly opens up to her and she is faced with a whole new reality; Myall isn’t human, Myall is dying and she is his on

Do you like high fantasy? Maybe completely set in a unique environment?

When I first started this book I thought it was going to be a young adult contemporary. I didn't have high hopes. Boy was I wrong!

SK Levy wove a tale so intricate and full of nuance that I was in heaven! The main characters of Lexie and Myall reached out and grabbed my heart and soul. This story was not just a great fantasy story, but one of adventure and romance. The setting in Australia and the correct usage of terms for th

Can I start out by saying I desperately need to pre-order book 2? Yes? Okay. Let's go!

Who else is in love with this cover??


1. Characters: I think the main characters have a really unique dynamic, and I like Lexie- the female protagonist. She's strong and smart. 💗 Her best friend, Jamie, is a great side character, and I hope he's in book 2 more! I also really hope we see more of the mysterious Karmi in the sequel.

A sweet love story

A hunky creator being, underwater love scenes, and Aussie lingo? This beautiful book by S.K. Levy has it all! The sights and smells of the outback come alive throughout the story as we follow Lexie on an incredible adventure of loss, love, and danger. I was astounded by the amount of thought and detail of the language development and cannot wait for more in the next adaptation!

This book took a little while to set up, but it was necessary for the world building and allowed the story to be thorough without being boring. Lexie and Myall's story was unique and interesting and in depth - a lot of research clearly went in to writing it. This is a subject that I think is important for Australian's and it was so beautifully written. I am so glad I read this book, and I cannot wait for the next one.

"Love is a tormenting emotion. It was powerful and untrustworthy."

So OH MY GOSH you guys, I finished this book quite a while ago but needed some time to gather up all my thoughts. I have one word for you....

AMAZING

I am lucky enough to have become friends with Sam (S.K. Levy) and she is beyond the sweetest human ever! When I found out she had written a book I jumped for it! I had heard such good things about it, but what I didn't know is how much these characters, and this world would wrap me in!

Before I am going to start with the actual review I’d just like to point out that the cover is such a soft material. My goodness what is it made of I have never felt a book like that!

Back to the topic. I truly enjoyed Reigntime yet decided to give it 3.5 stars. I’ll explain why in this review. First off I’d like to start with the writing style: I loveee the writing style! It’s funny, realistic and Australian. Yes. I have read about birds that I didn’t even know existed and probably w

Reigntime by S.K. Levy could have been great, but it was OK. It took me a long time to read because nothing was really happening for the most part. I found the characters annoying and there was WAY too much talking. I mean, a character is on the verge of DYING and the questions keep coming. Come on! I guess this book wasn't for me is all. You might enjoy it if you like high fantasy/romance books.

A beautifully written, unique story about the Reigntime creatures!

I absolutely loved this enchanting book! I loved the pure Australian lingo and learning about the Australian country! This book is full of magic, suspense, and love! And that ending! I need book two right now!!

*This book was sent to me as a free book by the author S.K. Levy in exchange for an honest review. The fact that it was sent to me will not sway my opinion in any way.*

“Myall looks up from Lexie’s lips into her eyes. ‘Are you scared?’ he whispered. ‘Terrified,’ she breathed. ‘Don’t be.’ ”

I wrote down some of my thought while reading this book and decided to include those in this review as well so I can make my point clearer for you (I hope).

The story is about Lexie Taylor and her ‘situation’. Sh

An amazing read! I'm not the biggest fan of Fantasy but this book is very unique! You can tell the author put in A LOT of work into it. The world building and character development are all so well done too. I love how the author is able to re-imagine Australia and its wildlife (with a slight twist) and produce something that's new and unique, something that you've never quite read before. I learned so much more than just the importance of friendship and love.

Reigntime caught my eye for a few reasons:
1. the cover is stunning!
2. it is by an Australian author
3. it is set in Australia
I had high hopes for this book and was not disappointed.
Lexie is a young nursing student on placement who gets stuck with a sucky supervisor and a mysterious patient. That mysterious patient is Myall, a Reigntime creature. Both of these characters were well written and formed.
The plot was interesting, more so towards the end of the book, and the backstories fit in well with

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Reigntime was being talked about all over bookstagram for a while last year and it piqued my curiosity. I was then sent a copy by the author a few months ago and couldn't wait to finally see what all the excitement was about. I didn't want to set my expectations too high though (in case it didn't live up to the hype like another book I read last year). The author was super sweet and I really really really wanted t

The writing is beautifully sound and pulls you into this enchanting world the author has invented. The magic in this story is so unique and the descriptions of Australia and the characters were to die for. I flew through this book and found it a refreshing take on paranormal romance, especially admiring the strength of the main character to fight for herself and stay strong in the face of despair. I was also particularly fascinated by the creativeness behind the Reigntime creatures and their his ...more

Lexie is a normal nursing student just trying to get through her rotations... until a good looking, mysterious man comes to the hospital. Soon, Lexie is the only one who can talk to Myall - an ageless creature from prehistoric Australia.

The book was a very good read - easy, action packed. It was a little formulaic, but was able to reach beyond the formula. I would have liked to see Lexie's character develop faster, but this is the first book in the series.
