{Synopsis} –It is only a matter of time before Gemma's parents find out she traveled through time to bring Harrison back into existence. The fear of being found out is a heavy weight on her shoulders, but she refuses to give up on everything she's fought for. Harrison is worth the risk.

The couple draws closer together as they battle opposing forces from all sides. They stay strong until Gemma's parents welcome an exchange student into their home. Simeon, a gorgeous Californian, is as smooth as coffee and, supposedly, a fellow time spirit. Gemma's parents expect her to take him everywhere and, of course, fall in love with him. After all, he is the boy they have chosen for her.

No longer able to sneak off alone, Gemma must watch every step as she waits for the inevitable nightmare to catch up to her. Her parents ultimate goal is to get that last necklace and open the box hidden in their safe. If they do, Gemma knows her entire world will unravel.
As the danger mounts, Gemma must decide if she has the courage to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the ones she loves and stop to her parents' destructive plans.

{My Thoughts} – This book picks up where the last had let out. It filled with angst, betrayal, deceit, love, admiration, and loyalty. Gemma is forced to trust her gut or trust what she had been raised to believe as a child when it comes to her and her family. She never fully understood the point of her travels, why she always had to be with and if there was a reason that the entire family had always participated.

A lot of the questions you have as a reader get answered in this third book. This book was mind blowing and exceptional. I couldn’t help but cry from reading some of the heart to heart moments. Gemma is your not so average teenage girl that has a not so normal family.

She is forced to put her feelings aside in order to make a sacrifice that can take everything away from her that she has ever known. She has to decide if she should do what is right or what she wants in order to fix all the bad that has been taking place in and around her life. This is a definite must read series!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
