The best vacation you will take all year, with out leaving your reading nook. Travel through time with the Book of Eleanor. Katie is taking a much needed vacation in historic Savannah. She has always loved the deep south, the history, the romance and the ghost stories. Katie finds out some stories are true as she is taken back to the civil war in search of her true love.

I love The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion what a wonderful adventure. Great job Shannon Nemechek I can't wait for the second book.

5 CRANKY STARS


This is a well written enchanting story that takes place in Savannah. The author has thrown in some historical romance so that it is technically historical fiction. The key history is the American Revolutionary War and the War between the States. There is a little time travel/memories and magic. I got wrapped into the story every time I picked up the book, which wasn’t too often as I found it hard to put down to begin with. Every time I read a book like this, I have to write down

The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion is the first book in The Book of Eleanor Series by Shannon Nemechek. It is a time travel fantasy- with magic, mystery, witches, history, war, love, suspense, drama, action and adventure. This has the feel of “Outlander”, but with a flavour all its own. I really enjoyed this first book and am looking forward to continuing with the rest of the series.
Katie Butler is a Major in the US Army- and she has no idea that her love of old books will catapult her on

The Traveler:Chimera Rebellion is the first book in The Book of Eleanor by Shannon Nemechek and what a first book it was. Shannon Nemechek is a new author to me and I will be seeking out her books in the future. This story has all the great elements for a great book. To be honest it was the cover that drew me to the book. On the other hand, it was the plot line and characters that keep me glued to my kindle. Nemechek writes about Kate and Colm who meet by chance. Kate loves books and when the ...more

The story The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor Book 1) by Shannon Nemechek is a time travel/romance book. It is a story that had me hooked from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down. I loved reading about the characters of Katie Butler and Colm O’Donnell.

I’m going to start with what drew me to reading The Traveler....honestly, it was the blurb: time travel and the Civil War, which are two of my fav things.

I was very intrigued with how Ms. Nemechek was able to spin the story of traveling through time. It was pretty neat actually.

As this is the beginning of a new series, I felt the character development was good and has me ready to read the next book......

The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion by Shannon Nemechek is the first book in the Book of Eleanor series. This is a fantastic and unique story that will have you completely hooked from the start.
From the moment I started reading this book I was utterly hooked. I really felt like I was immersed completely in the story and the journey of Katie and Colm. I loved how different they both were and how they managed to create a connection despite this.
Ms Nemechek has a great writing style – one that I have

5 Stars

I'm a HUGE fan of time travel novels that include romance… There's a huge series out there with books that are like super long and I have that whole series in paperback and have read it 3 times ...This is why I was a bit worried when I saw this book, I was afraid I'd be too critical or it wouldn't live up to what I had in my mind as far as expectations for the time travel genre…

One of the main reasons I chose

The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor 1) by Shannon Nemechek is an interesting read that keeps you on your toes wondering what is coming next. It is well written and keeps you glued to the pages. I enjoyed the characters and the worlds that Shannon has created. The story is along the same lines as Outlander, which I truly love. There is magic and witches, time travel and wars death and love.

Kate finds herself in Savannah and loving the history she has heard about, but she soon

The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion (The Book of Eleanor 1) by Shannon Nemechek. When I read the blurb I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but I knew I was interested to see where this author was about to take me. And boy am I so very glad I opened this book up and stepped inside. Katie immediately drew me inside the story and I was ready for an adventure and this story gave me just that. I couldn’t put it down and I’ll be honest I wasn’t ready for it to end. The author’s writing style is smooth ...more

I have not read any of the other novels by Shannon Nemechek, but I will say she outdid herself with "The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion"! It was an awesome read. It was very easy to fall into the story, and to be transported back in time to the Civil War, just as Katie was. You fall in love as she falls in love, and it will spellbind you as the magic is released. It based on historical fact, but as it as meant for entertainment purposes only, it was one of the best contemporary historical fiction ...more

I enjoyed this book. It is a time travel story that is engaging and I enjoyed watching the world building grow throughout the story. There is much going on in this story but I was easily able to keep up. The characters made the story realistic and had me turning pages fast. Katie is on leave from the Army when she finds out about a lost book. Now she is determined to find said book but is she prepared for what she finds and the secrets it holds? I highly recommend this book.

What a solid, well-written book! This romance is filled with the present and the past, supported by two main characters that you will immediately relate to. Nemechek has created a wonderful storyline that captures your heart and imagination and won’t let go. I loved every page and look forward to seeing how the series continues.

The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion is book one in an epic new series from Shannon Nemechek

From start to finish I was captivated by this incredible story and how amazing it was written. When Shannon said that this book would take you on an epic adventure, she wasn't lying.

The story is a constant page-turner and you won't want to put it down until you have finished.

This story is a unique and magical one that will most definitely leave you wanting more.

This was the first historical romance that I

From the very beginning to the very end of The Travelers: Chimera Rebellion, I was pleasantly surprised with how this story was woven. This book deserves 5 stars and I believe it is a definite must read! This book made me feel every emotion at once, and I loved it. From curiosity to anger, defeat to hope, and everything in between! Katie and Calm's story is stunning from start to finish with mild violence, mild sexual scenes, and minor language. I am very eager to see how Katie's story continues ...more

I really enjoyed this book. An adventure through time, some historical romance, and a bit of book nerd, this reminded me of ‘Outlander’. This is definitely a page turner, and I loved the plot and characters. Although the beginning was a little narrative-heavy, the story picks up and I really enjoyed the dialogue and the writing style hooked me in. This is a well-written book with lots of heart and warmth. I can’t wait for the next book.

I loved this so much, I was curious from the get go for the synopsis, as it seemed to remind me of another series that I also enjoy, but this book instantly made its own stand all by itself within the first few pages, I was hooked from the prologue. I adored Eleanor, Katie and fell in love with Colm myself. It had everything I loved, history, witches, magic, powerful women and handsome men.
