Time is Not As it Seems
When Cadence is rescued from a time ripple, she’s pulled into the 13th hour where time is a weapon of both destruction and deliverance.
˃˃˃ A Moment that will Change Her Life.
Tutored by the mysterious Tok, leader of the Timekeepers, Cada finds herself on the other side of the time veil where she is taught to use her allotted seconds to right the wrongs caused by dangerous time-stealing siphons.
˃˃˃ But nothing is as it seems.
Someone has organized the siphons and is using them to pursue immortality. All fingers point to one man, yet Cada is drawn inexplicably to his green eyes and damaged soul. Can she figure out the truth before an innocent man is forced to pay the ultimate price?
4 out of 5 (very good)
THE TROUBLE WITH TIMEKEEPERS is the first book in a new series by Cheree Alsop, so absolutely I've had to read it!
Cada is an Innate. That means she is able to manipulate time without using a nifty little device like the rest of them. Who are the rest of them? Well, the Timekeepers, of course. The only trouble is, Cada has no idea she's a Timekeeper or what it actually entails. So she is brought into a world with it's own rules and regulations, able to change time, but having no idea what she should or shouldn't do. That also brings a fresh perspective to that world, as well as to Cadence herself.
The story is an intricate twist of time and sorrow, heartache and hope. Cada learns that nothing is black and white but can she make a difference? I was completely engrossed in this story and read it in one sitting. The characters are all relatable, even Eternyl - who has a sad story but becomes insane!
One word about the cover itself - GORGEOUS!!! I think it is completely stunning and would look fantastic as a piece of wall art.
I would have loved a bit more at the end, as it felt like some parts were glossed over slightly. Saying that, I did love the ending between Cada and Destyn. I really hope they feature in future books as I thought they were brilliant. I loved entering their world and can't wait to return. Absolutely recommended by me.
