*No spoilers* This story begins with Cris, the main character, after she has sacrificed herself to a nuclear bomb to save the rest of humanity per a prophecy, yet still miraculously lives. We are given clues as to why the bomb went off throughout the book, sometimes at crucial moments in the middle of a conversation so you forget what they were talking about because of her reminiscing. The rest of the story takes place on a pirate ship where she's taken when she's found alive. She's shunned by s ...more

Read this book for the Pirates. And the sirens. But mostly the Pirates.

*Spoiler free review*

This is a modern YA Fantasy that will completely blow you away. It’s got everything you look for when wanting to escape to that magical fantasy world you’re always searching for. There’s twists and turns, excellent character development and world building which leaves you hungry for more once you’ve actually finished this book. Luckily there’s more from this author on the horizon!!

Time Torn is the modern YA fantasy story you've dreamed about, the one where you travel with the MC back in time and suddenly you're on a pirate ship and there are sirens and gorgons and high stakes and, of course, love. I can't believe we have 7 more of these exciting books coming out!! ...more

Sirens and pirates, perfect!
I received a digital arc in exchange for an honest review. This is simply my opinion on the book and is not influenced by any external factor.

I’m going to start first by providing the rating, and then explaining why I’ve given it this score.

4/5 – An exciting fantasy adventure that was hard to put down. Easy to read, however, it does contain some strong language (not for younger readers).

“I’d wanted a life like one of my fantasy novels and now I actually had that life. It just goes to show. Al

I have a weakness for Pirates and Magic.

Time Torn was such a fun read, a story that takes the reader on a wild adventure, and with the quick pacing I couldn't put the book down.

Though, there were a few punctuation mistakes, they were easy to overlook. I'm super curious about this prophecy, and look forward to spending more time with the Pirates.
