Summary

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything...a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries - if you are a Descendant of Time.

Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

Hold on tight as you travel through

This is a gripping story that flips back and forth through time as we find out about Saira's family history, she makes friends, and rescues her Mum from danger in the past. There's a hint of romance, a lot of intrigue and although I believe it's aimed at younger adults is a fantastic read for those of us who aren't so young.

This is a new version on Audible, read by the same person (Gemma Barrett) who reads the others. If you have the previous version it's not necessary to own this one but I saw it was on sale so grabbed it. Gemma reads well and now it flows with the others so there's no change in pronunciation which is good.

great book

I only wish Gemma Barrett had narrated the whole series instead just the first 3. She did a great job of narrating this series and I loved them all. I have read this series 3 times.

Different book she's reading from mine

I thought this book was amazing. I only wish the narrator was American to fit the character.
