4.5 Stars - Truly Sweet AND Hot!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Time Thief: A Time Thief Novel (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the start of a new series by Ms. MacAlister and it is as far as you can get from her usual books. There are Time Travelers and animi but only hints of Vampires and Revenants! This book is written in a way that reminds me greatly of one of my all time favorites of Katie's - "Noble Intentions" - this book has the same sort of irreverent humor to it, and the same medium difficulty to decipher mystery.
The story could have gotten a little confusing what with paradoxes and whatnot possible at all times....but Katie handles the details very well and we are never once given more detail than we can handle.
Kiya Mortenson is a lightning strike survivor -twice! That makes her special only she doesn't yet have a clue as to how special she is. Until she meets up with the Faa family. Her first meeting is with an absolutely gorgeous, possible male-model type, hunk of man who helps her out when her ancient car dies. Her second meeting is a little more complicated and a lot more hilarious. From here things just seem to snowball.
Murder accusations abound, Kiya is hit over the head a time or two and oh yes -Kiya also experiences a LOT of déjà vu and some other very interesting phenomena.
Hot sex, laughs, interesting mystery and a romantic story will keep engrossed in this lovely quick and light read. There is a lot of world building, but not so much that it takes away from the story or the romance.
An interesting note is that Katie helps us out in her new world by giving us a history, terminology, a glossary and various other helpful things at the back of this book.
