    I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewThat being said I can honestly say gush that I adored this book It is a gorgeously written incredibly detailed and researched novel that is like the best parts of Doctor Who Downton Abbey and a bit of Veronic Mars put together It would probably make an epic TV show someone get on that please I need everyone to read this book so I have someone to discuss it with

    Read all my reviews on I like time travel so naturally when I heard about this time travel novel featuring a Syndicate sending people back into time to steal certain artifactsStassi and her partner are sent to 1920s Paris in order to track down a certain manuscript while they have to mingle in with the local artists consisting of many many famous historical figures However what starts as a routine job goes a

    I received an electronic reading copy in exchange for an honest review35 StarsI have such conflicted feelings about this book because it had such an amazing premise an interesting story line but it just did not deliver in being a solid book It was full of so much detail which I don't really mind but much of it was so unnecessary and did nothing to advance the story Too much filler and that's saying a lot as this book is

    I feel like there is a really big gap in YA for well written fun Sci Fi with an interesting concept The Syndicate definitely goes some way towards filling this void for me Firstly the characters are immensely fun Stassi is passionate

Job is to seamlessly slip through the past in search of items of value to the syndicate's clienteleStassi's next assignment takes her to Paris in the 1920’s in search of a lost manuscript by one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers She and her partner Gaige are swept up in the City of Light during the height of fashion and culture as alluring a locale as they’ve ever visited But I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewThat being said I can honestly say gush that I adored this book It is a gorgeously written incredibly detailed and researched novel that is like the best parts of Doctor Who Downton Abbey and a bit of Veronic Mars put together It would probably make an epic TV show someone get on that please I need everyone to read this book so I have someone to discuss it with The Main Character had so many charmingly irreverant asides that I absolutely laughed out loud many times This is such an unusual occurence for me that my family kept asking if I were ok I don t want to give any plot points away because everyone should be allowed to enjoy watching the story unfold for themselves but there is mystery romance humour and science fiction in all the right measures

A seedier side of life lurks beneath the glamorous façade and the pair uickly learns this run is dangerous than any of their previous missionsBecause history isn’t playing out as it should be a first for the syndicate When the stakes are raised and it becomes a matter of life or death Stassi and Gaige must ultimately decide how far they’re willing to go to ensure the future as they know I received an electronic reading copy in exchange for an honest review35 StarsI have such conflicted feelings about this book because it had such an amazing premise an interesting story line but it just did not deliver in being a solid book It was full of so much detail which I don t really mind but much of it was so unnecessary and did nothing to advance the story Too much filler and that s saying a lot as this book is over 500 pages It drags and it s such a shame because the story is definitely interestingStassi is a runner for an underground syndicate that is responsible for traveling back in time to secure priceless artifacts and bring them back to present day for their elite set of clients When a run to Paris in 1925 to secure an unpublished manuscript becomes available Stassi and her partner Gaige are all over it Problems arise when the two find themselves in the city with a historically undocumented serial killer on the loose When the killer takes a particular interest in Stassi and her partner is accused of being the murderer the pair have to decide what is necessary and what they will risk in order to complete their missionWhat made this book so interesting was undoubtedly the era it was placed in The futuristic aspects annoyed me a little bit particularly the DOG Scan I mean really but Paris is Paris and the 1920 s were such an interesting time Not to mention that the two must gain the friendship of an artsy group of people that include the likes of Ernest Hemmingway and Gertrude Stein in order to complete their mission That was my favorite part As an artistic person myself I found myself completely jealous of Stassi s abilities to go back in time and associate with such persons How fascinating that would beI also really liked Charles Stassi s love interest when she gets to Paris I found myself really crushed when I knew she was going to have to say goodbye and can honestly say that I was a little bit surprised by the ending of this book Although there was part of me that saw it coming and I m a little glad it played out the way it did I don t think I was ready to say goodbye to Charles just yetThere are a lot of different things happening in this book that almost branch out into their own little story lines and they really make up the bulk of the story There s Stassi s need to find about her locket so she can identify her parents there s the manuscript they need to secure for a client there s this unknown serial killer on the loose there s the rogue runner who s MIA from another syndicate and there is the blossoming relationship between Stassi s love interest Charles So much going on all at once and yet somehow this book moved along at such a slow pace That is the reason for my disappointment and my lower rating of the book It was all interesting to me and I wanted to know what was going to happen with each plot point but my lack of willpower to read through the dull parts had me putting this book down for lengthier periods of timeIf you have the patience and the book sounds interesting to you I say pick it up Overall it is not an uneventful read I m hoping for a stronger seuel for this Timewaves series
