Synopsis

Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
The author has taken an original idea, formulated her own set of rules for the world she is writing about and then stuck to them. For those of you who do not write take it from me – that is a very hard thing to do. The story is hard to classify. It’s Young Adult; it has a love story; it’s about time travel, but is not the usual time travel sort of story; it’s about magic but not what you would expect. In fact in my experience it is unique and you will have to read it to understand.
Do read the synopsis first as this will give you an idea, then just enjoy!
Even three quarters of the way through it you will still not be sure who are the villains and who the good guys, but please persevere – it’s worth it and when you reach the conclusion you will look forward to the next installment of the saga.
