A welcome surprise from an old favorite series author of mine.

Loved the sci-fi and mystery elements.
Prenna was a good character but Ethan steals the show.

Time travel is an unusual theme for me to grasp. I almost always have a dread feeling when I start a book knowing it's about time travel. I have a preconceived notion that it is unrealistic. This book, however, was wonderful and easy to believe.

I am not a fan of the ending though. It did not end very well summed up. I wanted a bit more closure to Prenna and Ethan's relationship as well as the traveler community. I can only assume this will be a series and the remaining information will come in a later installment.
