"She felt him before she saw him, and the impact of his spirit made her gasp. It was like looking into the sun and never wanting to look away. He made her fingers itch to reach out and touch, a sensation she’d never felt in all her years. Then she rounded a corner and saw him."

Reigning Magicks is the perfect example of what a good time travel romance can and should do. We have our heroine who is thrusted 300 years into the future after performing a ritual with hopes of uniting both her familial

An interesting start to the series

This is an alternative take on the time-travel romance (from what I’m aware of and have read, anyway), where the female of the pair magically travels into the future instead of the past, in order to find her true love.

Well, OK, it is somewhat more complicated than that, but that is at least part of the basic principle behind the story.

Ashlynn searches for the local

I found the writing to be immature and it never seemed to settle on one genre or another. The characters were ill-defined and in one instance the terminology was offensive.

This was a quick and fun read. I enjoyed the mystery of the bloodlines and how Cian and Ashlynn interacted. One thing that threw me was the modern language coming from Ashylnn who is from 300 years in the past. I found that hard to get past, for example she referred to someone as a "twat" which while kind of funny is also something she never would have heard before. How did she come up with that word? Things like that made the story a bit disjointed for me. I also didn't understand really - or s ...more

But it just creates a new one: thanks to a spell gone wrong, Ashlynn is thrust over three hundred years into the future.

I was dragged in from the start. The beginning kinda had the movie "Brave" feeling to it, and I wanted to see where it went. And I am in awe!
Ashlynn is a princess from the past, Cian is a "prince" of the present. And when a magical wish Ashlynn is granted, they're world's are thrust together and Ashlynn is suddenly apart of Cian's world, almost 300 years later.
This is a wicked good storyline, with amazing characters and incredible world building! Looking forward to the next installment!!!
