Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:

Time Crossed is a Traveller novella in which we continue the story of Gregory Faa (cousin to the hero of book #1), and meet Gwen Owens, another spunky, spirited, and wackily witty Katie MacAlister heroine that you can't help but love, caught in a snapshot of time as their lives cross as fate intended...

Given the length of this novella, the fact that I don't do spoilers, and simply because it truly is just an introduction to the stars of The Art of Stealing Time, book #2, and a teaser of what we can expect in that book with these 2, this review is going to be very short and not very exciting, I'm afraid...

Suffice it to say that I can tell from this novella that book #2 is going to be super fun with snark aplenty, and that the cat and mouse between our hero and heroine will be quite exciting indeed! Readers should take this novella as it is though, it's not a full story. If you go in with that expectation you will be sorely disappointed. There isn't much plot development and it pretty much just ends. If you go into it looking at it as more of a combo epilogue of book #1/prologue to book #2, and realize that it's meant as a between full-length release teaser to be used as an introductory segue to book #2, you'll be much more pleased.

It was entertaining and most definitely had me wanting book #2 immediately, so I think it did its job. :)

Sara Do I need to read book 1 first?

Michelle Leah Olson You can follow the characters just fine if you don't, but it's the history of the world building that you'll miss out on - what exactly is a traveller, the nuances of their family clans, what a member of the Watch does for everyone, etc. This and The Art of Stealing Time read well fine as stand-alones from a character perspective because Kaite focuses on a different couple and a whole new set of circumstances, but this is such a new and unique world (I've never read anything like it) that reading Time Thief would be recommended.
