Recommended for: Ages 13+

Just when Trent and Cassie think they'll finally get the happy ending they deserve, Cassie finds herself jumping through time. Somehow she has obtained the ability to time travel after being present at the Sedona vortex at the time of Dr. Fox's death. She figures out she must complete her mission in order to get back, but this is easier said than done. In addition, while Trent and Lorelai can cover up his travels, Cassie has to deal with a complication they've never had - parental interference. In this life, Cassie's parents are once again happy, but a bit overprotective. The real trouble begins when her parents tell her she needs to stop seeing so much of Trent. And in this timeline, a new enemy also presents itself. It looks like no world is perfect. One thing we can be sure of - Cassie and Trent are destined to be together. But will they finally find their happily-ever-after?

Once again the story is told from the points-of-view of Cassie and Trent. The pace is hectic, as we follow Cassie on a few missions and wonder how she's going to deal with her sudden disappearances. The major (happy) incident that happens towards the end of the book may seem a bit over the top for a young adult book, however because of the time and place in which it occurs, it is perfect.

Just a reminder, never get your mother to do your editing. There are a number of editing errors including incorrect spelling (e.g., journies for journeys, eery for eerie), incorrect word usage (e.g., wreaks for wracks, shoot for shute, donned for dawned, base for bass, decimals for decibels, alter for altar, literary for literally, bare for bear, loaner for loner, duel for dual), and the mixing of past and present tenses.

All in all, this is a very satisfying conclusion to a great series.

I received this book in return for an honest review.

Janine Caldwell Hi Lynda!
Thanks so much for the 5 stars! I'm so glad you enjoyed Cassie and Trent's journey. Thanks for the heads up with the editing errors. I assure you, I did pay a professional editor and had a few other readers go over too. It's amazing what our eye can miss. I will certainly correct all these errors for the next edition. Thanks again!
