'ECHOES OF TIME' is the final book in Calia Read's 'Surviving time' series. It picks up where the previous book left off.

A Unique, Unputdownable, compelling read, that got it's hooks into me from the get go.

“If I feel the pull back, I will hold on to you,” I vow.

I refuse to believe that this is the end of my Belgrave journey!

I refuse to believe that there will be no more Serene and Étienne Lacroix. Nope I’ll just wait patiently for a spin-off where I can get more of them, or Livingston story, or maybe more of Asa and Natalie because seriously this two deserve to be together!

”No matter what you believe, there’s no opposing the undeniable fact: once we accept any truth into our lives, change is imminent.”

Time: that four letter word that we would kill to have more of is like a double edged sword sometimes. Whether it’s to go back to rewrite a wrong, have more of those precious moments with a loved one, or just to be selfish because you feel that you deserve it, time is always going to be a powerful thing that we can never have enough of.

Love Etienne and Serene ❤ This entire series is amazing! If you like time travel romance you need to read this series! Its one of the best.

I hope we get Asa and Nathalie’s story next! I need them to be together!
Genre: Time Travel Romance
Type: Book 3 of 3 from Surviving Time Series
POV: First Person- Multiple

Time was never on Serene and Étienne Lacroix’s side. As they learned in the present of what happened to all the things they loved in the past, they must discover what caused the ripple in time and fix it before it’s lost forever.

And as frustrating as I found people with their lack of manners, how they carried themselves without a thought to the stranger next to them was frankly quite refre

Continuing without interruption in the plot timeline, Serene and Étienne are trying to decipher the meaning of past events through the lens of the present in hopes of not losing each other again. Though Serene and Étienne are making the most of their moments together, Étienne cannot shake the feeling something is deeply wrong.

“No matter what you believe, there’s no opposing the undeniable fact: once we accept any truth into our lives, change is imminent.”

Echoes of Time concludes Serene and Étienne story. They had to go through a lot to be together. Go through a lot of eras and change timelines. Compared to book 2 The Reigning and The Rule where they spent a lot of their time being apart, here in EoT they’re together and fighting against time to stay together.

EoT started out slow but it picked up the pace. It was a lot of fun to see Étienne in Serene’s time. Figuring out the world of electronics and of course the language. Also trying to fit in

"Whoever believes love comes without sacrifice is a fool."

SIX MONTHS I waited for this conclusion. SIX MONTHS I whined about needing more Etienne and Serene. SIX MONTHS I freaked out over this love that consumed my thoughts.

And now that I am done with it, I don't even know what I am supposed to do with myself. How will my excitement level ante up for the next series, Belgrave Dynasty? How am I even going to wait for that one with a calm demeanor and a cool facade? I'm fooling m

“Our love holds time together.”

Serene and Etienne have been on a wild, epic, time-defying journey for their love, in finding it and keeping it alive. I can’t think of another series like this one – it’s about time travel, yes, but it’s a romance like no other. This series has kept my heart pounding and aching for these two characters who we KNOW are meant to be, despite time dictating otherwise. We finally come to the conclusion to Serene and Etienne’s hea

I will miss Belgrave.

This one was not my favorite of the series, but it was a lovely conclusion. And I loved the series as a whole. I hope the author revisits this world, I really want other characters to get their own books.

"I’ve fallen in time. I’ve loved through time. I’ll die in time."

Well shit.

I cannot believe it’s over. Now what am I supposed to do with myself? I’ve been powering through these books every chance that Calia gives me and I just don’t know what to do now that it’s all over with. Pout? Cry? Whine? Beg for more? I’m going with all of the above. Starting with pouting. 

Per the freaking usual— Calia’s writing was top notch. It’s 10 times as enchanting as Belgrave is. And her vivid imagery is what drea

5 BEAUTIFUL TIME TRAVEL STARS!! I love Etienne and Serene story so much, these two will be in my heart forever. This is book 3 for this beautiful original series. I did not know what to expect with this series....This is not a normal read for me and what I got was PHENOMENAL story. Their love story has time travel, humor, family, all the feels and lots of love. You definitely need to read this series, you will love it.

I've been sitting on this review for a while, unsure of what I wanted to say or even how to say it. I think the main thing is that I'm sad this final novel did not resonate with me the way it has a lot of other people. That being said, I'm happy for those with whom it did.

This rating is not reflective of the author or her talent, it's simply reflective of my own personal experience reading this book. I do think she has a lot of talent. In fact, Calia Read has written one of my all time fa

Echoes of Time is the 3rd book in the Surviving Time series. This is not a standalone book. This is an amazing series that you will want to read and immerse yourself in from book 1 to book 2 to book 3. When you're done, you will find that you never want to leave Belgrave or Étienne and Serene. But now it's over for me and I don't know what to do because I already miss Étienne and Serene! I want more and now! I know I sound like Veruca Salt, but I don't care. I'm greedy and I know it. Oh, how I l ...more

Go in blind and enjoy the scenery. A fantastic series from start to finish, Echoes of Time is the conclusion to the Surviving Time Series.

Etienne with his southern charm and Serene with her witty comebacks and sassiness captivated me. I loved their banter. I loved their deep commitment to one another. Their story was told at a slower pace but with all the intricacies and details. They were everything to each other and I hoped for the best as I moved right along with them

Gosh I loved this book! I'm going to miss Étienne & Serene soooo much now that it's over. I feel like I know them. I cried, I laughed and I got everything I wanted for these characters and the HEA I waited 3 books for them to get. My heart was happy.

I don't want to say too much because I think everyone should go into not just this book, but this series blind. Definitely recommend.

I received an arc of this book.

I cant believe its over. Im crying.

Echoes of time is the book of this century. Calia read is genuine in everything she writes. She has phenomenal success in writing novels that make your heart cut open and make you bleed for days. I'm still trying to get over this book/series. How do you move on from something that over took your life? You dont. Its impossible. So be ready to read a book that'll never leave your mind

I can’t even begin to express my feelings towards this book. I’m exhilarated because the wait is over, but then I feel the other extreme: sadness because the series is over. My love for Calia Read’s writing stemmed from the very first book in this series, The Surviving Trace, and ever since that book, I have been a follower.
Serene and Etienne’s love story survived so many obstacles, especially time. How can I not be sad to see their story come to an end? But at the same time I fill fulfilled wi

Echoes of Time by Calia Read is the final book in the “Surviving Time” series and one of my most anticipated stories of this year. There is something romantic in the idea of love which is above rules and this couple overcomes every obstacle to be together.

Etienne and Serene are soulmates but they belong in a different era. They bend the rules to have their happily ever after but they must be careful because each action can alt

Belgrave is calling!!

When I first finished The Reigning and The Rule, I had my theories of how Étienne and Serene's story would conclude. While I was correct on a few things, my thoughts and vision paled miserably in comparison to the amazing conclusion of their story.
I wanted to read as fast as I possibly could but I also didn't want it to end so I tried to go slow and savor every single word.
The tears. Oh so many tears that I cried. Some things had me so happy I cried, laughing so hard that I

Echoes of Time was bittersweet for me. I loved the conclusion to Etienne and Serene's story, it kept me glued to the pages anticipating what would come next. While I found it a fitting end I still want more. I'm not ready to let go of these characters (both main and secondary) or this world just yet. There are too many things I still need and want to know. I'm hoping the author writes stories for Etienne's and Serene's siblings. I recommend this series to those who love epic stories about love t ...more

This is the ending that brings us answers of the surrounding mystery that were left in the last book. I couldn't believe it, it was unpredictable. Etienne and Serene's story is very beautiful and I highly recommend this series.

I can't wait to see what the Belgrave Dynasty series bring and I really wonder who is it going to be about, even though I might have an idea. What I like about this series, is that its not technical with the whole time travel thing. Just read it and enjoy it.

Thoughts, countless emotions, nostalgia and endless love. I’m still reeling after two days of having finished reading this third book of The Surviving Time trilogy.

I continue to mull over so many parts of this story almost to the point of obsession! I absolutely loved it! I’m now left with bittersweet feelings and anticipation for more from Calia Read!

What a fabulous series! If you haven't started this series yet, you really need to. You have the advantage of all three books being available so you don't have to wait for the conclusion of Serene and Etienne's journey. And what a journey it was.

There are so many moving parts to their story and Calia does a fabulous job of walking you through every facet of their lives. You'll laugh, swoon and sweat over what may or may not happen. The road to an HEA for Ser
