Short synopsis: Time is a currency, Jules returns to the childhood estate that she and her father fled to try to save her father’s life.
Initial Thoughts: This felt like that movie In Time to me, just set in the past instead of the future. This book is also the reason I added predictability to my review system, cause well to me it was VERY predictable, more on that later…
Characters: 3 – I liked Jules, as a YA heroine she was a lot less annoying than some, but the other characters, they didn’t do it for me. Most of them were underdeveloped and well boring.
Plot: 3 – The plot moved at a nice pace, the ending felt a bit rushed, especially with all the build up. I generally enjoy when books have some sort of mythology tied in, but this one confused me more than anything.
Originality: 3 – This book was just like In Time but with some myths and legends, though it did manage to still be relatively original.
Predictability: 2 – I was not a chapter into this book before I could tell you what was going to happen. I will drop any spoilers, but yeah, it was obvious.
Romance: 3 – This was a bit of a letdown, the Gerling boys were a bit underdeveloped and well boring. I wanted more for Jules.
World Building: 3 – This was done pretty well. I am still slightly confused about the myth, and maybe that’s more my fault than anything, but I would have maybe liked some sort of “history” on time as a form currency.
An okay book, especially if you enjoyed In Time.
