Overview

The Crosses--high-spirited Elizabeth and her brilliant Professor of the Occult husband, Simon--find themselves, along with Jack Wells, in 1920 Cairo on a special assignment for the Council for Temporal Studies.

Jane Austen once said "If a book is well written, I always find it too short." I can relate. I always find that to be true every time I read one of Monique Martin's "Out Of Time" books! (Sands Of Time is book 6 in the series...if you haven't read any of the others...go get them. Now. You will not be disappointed!) Monique is a brilliant storyteller with an endless imagination. She excels at creating characters with incredible depth that you really care about. I end each book already anticipating their next adventure! Sands Of Time starts out with a bang and takes you on a ride through Egypt in the 20's that is not to be missed! She obviously does her research before writing a book. Her descriptions are so vivid that you feel as if you are right there with all of her wonderful characters, experiencing that point in time in Egypt through their eyes. There is time travel, romance (without the vulgarity that seems to be becoming the norm...its so refreshing and REAL), an intriguing mystery that unfolds wonderfully as the story progresses,lots of action, a touch of the supernatural and fabulous humor! She is great at writing witty dialogue...smart, thoughtful and at times laugh out loud. This is a book that you must read! (As well as all the others in this series!) Well written, intelligent and just plain FUN!!! Keep them coming Monique! You're such a gifted writer...I'll go wherever your fabulous characters take me! (I received this book as an ARC on my Overdrive Media app...but purchased it immediately so that it can sit on my 'Monique Martin' shelf on my nook. That way all of the Out Of Time books sit in a row, in order, together...as they should be! :-)

Sands of Time is awesome! I love it when I finish a book and later I find it playing back in my mind as though I've watched a movie. Every book in this series has been exeptional! I love Monique's writing style. From love story, to mystery to action and adventure, This book and this series will not disappoint!

In this series of novels, I think this was my favorite. I like all the series, but this one the characters are in the desert and you feel like it's happening before your very own eyes. The detail she puts into the different era's she takes you to are exciting and spell binding. I look forward to her next! I love the characters she uses in this series. Donna Brown, Florida

I fell in love with elizabeth and simon from the very begining. Ms. Martin has great characters that you just can't help but fall in love with and want to be right there with them in the middle of all the action and adventure as they travel through time. They go all the places I would go if I could travel through time, and yes, I already have my very own Simon, though not a Professor, he is a Marine. ;) . Thank you Ms. Martin for all the great hours, and sometimes days, of fun reading. One of your greatest fans, Shalene Harris

Another exceptional novel by this author. She combines romance, mystery, intrigue and time travel into one fabulous package. The book is a must read in the series. Once you pick it up, you will not want to stop reading. Well done Ms. Martin.

One of my favourites in this series. Love the setting of Egypt in the '20s with archeologists digging for famous tombs of the pharaohs, pyamids, fancy hotels for rich Europeans, bandits, thieves, & new friends for Elizabeth and Simon to get into danger with. And one of the dangers they' ve encountered before & didn't expect to see again! Can't wait to find out more about the Shadow Council and their nemesis, and will Jack ever meet up with Diana again?
