IT'S A RACE AGAINST TIME.
In Remembrance, Lizzie and Drew changed the course of fate so they could be together.
In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path.
Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make matters worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.
Because to make things right, they must travel back to when it all began ... and Lizzie discovers that the final events in her past life were more sinister than she ever imagined.
Timeless takes us on quite an adventure. The combination of time travel, magic, and love makes the story an unforgettable page turner. After the shocking events in Vengeance, I was dying to find out where Chelsea’s actions would lead and if the girls would ever be able to repair their friendship. Madow answered all of these questions and more in the final installment of the Transcend Time saga.
At the end of Vengeance Chelsea misguidedly casts a spell with unforeseen consequences. In order to prevent something truly disastrous from happening, Lizzie, Chelsea, and Drew must all travel back to Regency England to change the course of time. Since the three have to work together, we get to see Lizzie and Chelsea interacting again. I am a huge fan of their friendship, so I was very happy to see the two forced to work out some of their issues.
Drew wasn’t always nice to Chelsea—given the consequences of her actions, this is somewhat understandable. However, I really do blame Drew for what happened between Chelsea and Lizzie. Since the entire mess is his fault, he could be a bit more sympathetic. Nevertheless, he is still really sweet with Lizzie, which makes him both likable and flawed.
My absolute favorite part of the novel was the time travel! We find out so much about Lizzie’s past life and it is a lot more scandalous then we ever thought! Lizzie, Chelsea, and Drew uncover some really big secrets and have some important mysteries to solve before they can return to the present day and it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! I really didn’t see these plot twists coming, and they were utterly fabulous.
Michelle Madow creates a beautiful tale of love, friendship, and forgiveness. She has an understanding of people that allows her to create very realistic characters. They are flawed, yet likable. Chelsea and Lizzie’s relationship reminds me of my friendships with some of my closet friends. While Remembrance is a love story heart, it is the friendships that I will miss reading about the most. I am truly looking forward to more of Madow’s works in the future, although I am sad to say goodbye to this particular cast of characters.
