I received a gratis copy of this novella from the publisher.

I've greatly enjoyed Nikel's fun time travel novella series, which in the past I've described as along the lines of old favorite shows like Sliders and Quantum Leap. This volume brings a new development to the time-twisted family saga: Cass has grown up in the future, forced by her parents into a relentless study of history. Only on her 18th birthday is she delivered the harsh truth that they've been trying to prepare her for her future

As with the second book my main complaint here is just that it is so short! I think that even adding another 50 pages or so would have made this feel much less rushed and help me connect to Cassandra more as a person. As it was I just felt like I was being hurried along from place to place and never getting a really good feel for any of the characters. It was a good ending to the series overall and I do in general like the way this author hand

Big question: why introduce Elise in the first book and keep her out of the other three? Couldn't the series have been written with Elise all the way through?

Big problem: (view spoiler)

Barely 1.5 stars. I liked this series a lot: I like the shorter (novella) format, I like that the plots are uncomplicated, I don't mind that the characters don't have a great deal of depth to them. But this one was disappointing. To begin with, I think this story needed a full-length novel to be adequately told, and, unlike the previous books, I felt I didn't get my money's worth for the 4 euros I gave for the book. Plus, the protagonist is very young, and not in a good way (she comes across as ...more

I got this as an Advanced Readers Copy through LibraryThing. I really enjoyed The Cassandra Complex! It had a very interesting story line and it kept my attention. I wish the book was a little longer so that some developments didn’t seem so rushed. But all in all! I’d give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s and will probably read this series again! (Book # 4 is in the works so I’m already excited to revisit the series!)

Nice short story in the series, but needs more development 3.4

My favorite of the series so far! A quick, fun read with the right amount of intrigue and plot twists. I felt the interactions were believable and I liked that Cassandra showed some growth.
