I liked the premise and found the information about London during the Blitz interesting, but the writing and characters just didn't suck me in. When I realized - halfway through the book - that it was only the first in a series, I decided there were too many other good stories out there for me to stick with this one for 600 more pages and gave up, which means I'll never know whether I hallucinated a completely random chapter that had nothing to do with any of the characters that had already been introduced or whether it really happened and was later explained. Oh well. I'll live.

Lisa I feel you on this. I'm digging my Time Riders, but then I learned that there are 9!!! other planned books in the series - allegedly. Do I stick with it and risk getting sucked in? Or just stop now?
