Overview

From award-winning author Shana Abé comes the fifth novel in her paranormal Drákon series—featuring a glittering world of supersensual creatures that can shape-shift from human to smoke to dragon.

Honor Carlisle may have been born into the drákon clan but she’s always felt like a stranger to her kin—an intuition that proves true when she discovers that she is a Time Weaver: a creature with the extraordinary ability to transport herself into the past or future.

On one of her Weaves into the future, Honor encounters the very man she should most avoid: Alexandru of the Zaharen, prince of a rival tribe of drákon. As the two surrender to a desire that brings the present and future ever closer, they also risk fulfilling a terrible prophecy. Now Honor and Sandu must place their trust—and their lives—in each other’s hands, and their faith in a magical love that could restore order to the drákon universe—or destroy it forever.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Abé is an immensely gifted storyteller.”—Karen Marie Moning, New York Times bestselling author

“Stunningly lyrical, sensual, and mesmerizing . . . a stellar addition to [Shana] Abé’s imaginative shape-shifting dragon series.”—Library Journal

“Spellbinding . . . Soar with Abé and be breathless with awe at her talents.”—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)

“Sumptuous prose . . . The entire series is worthy of a Perfect 10.”Romance Reviews Today

Publishers Weekly
Abé’s fifth Drákon fantasy romance (after 2009’s The Treasure Keeper) introduces Honor Carlisle, whose time-traveling powers help her fit into a dragon society hidden in the midst of 18th-century England. In an original and ambitious spin on time travel stories, Honor is at once the heroine and, from a future time line, the nemesis who drives the plot. The slow revelation of why and how such a sympathetic character could turn against her values adds dramatic tension, and the drákon’s well-meant efforts to avert tragedy lead them to horrific expedients, making a welcome change from stock villains. Despite occasional purple prose and an unsatisfying ending precipitated by a third party who forces resolution on the conflicted protagonists, this story delivers a real sense of wonder. (June)

    Read it for the ending

    I am really disappointed with this book. The main characters don't stand out like they are supposed to, and their connection at times seem tame. Don't commit to this story because its the weaker of the series, and if this is supposed to be the ending, I suggest it be read only to find out how the series end and what happens to the Drakon, and NOT for pleasure. I will even go as far as to say skip it entirely. A lot of issues are not addressed and it should have gone on for several, hundreds, of more pages. From Treasure Keeper we were introduced to the Time Weaver, Rez, and she was on her way to see Prince Sandu. I was literally left in suspense, hanging on a thread, but this story did not live up to its potential and expectations. This book left me with tremendously more questions than answers. I am very saddened that the series has come to this. The ending served as an ending, but not the satisfying, wondrous, leave you in gratified tears kind of ending that the series deserve.

    Disappointing. The best book of the series is, by far, The Drea

    Disappointing. The best book of the series is, by far, The Dream Thief. I would even say to read just that book. However, the HEA for Zane and Lia is uncertain. The rest of the books in the series all bring the reader one step closer to this end. So, I had great expectations for this last book. It fell short and left me with many unanswered questions about the Drakons, Zane&Lia's future and even Rez&Sandu. This was supposed to be their story, and yet I didn't feel like it was. I would have liked to have gotten to know them and their story better. Overall, Time Weaver is well written; but, it is a complicated read without a satisfying ending to the series.

    not my style but not that bad

    when i got this book i wasnt aware that the shapeshifters only changed into dragons. i must admit i was reluctant about reading it but i was in a need for something to read so i read it anyway. dragons aside the the wonderfuly romantic idea of time travel was perfectly threaded into the plot. the end was a bit anticlimactic and i was rather disappointed. anyway the sex sences were too much for me. she didnt leave much to the imagination. if you're into these kinds of things then you might like this one but it wasnt for me

    super romantic fantasy

    In 1782 Drakon clan member Honor Carlisle cannot explain why she has always felt like an outsider. That is until the letter arrives that explains all to her. The sender is Honor and the receiver is also Honor. Eleven months four days into the future Honor Carlisle sent back the explanatory note that claims she is a Time Weaver, the only one born to the Drakon.

    The letter warns her to leave her home Darkfirth or die. Heeding the advice of her future self, she flees to Spain and begins to practice time weaving that enables her to move into the past and future with strict rules of physics that her uncanny ability cannot break. However, she is attracted to a Drakon from a rival sect Prince Alexandru of Zaharen. They are soulmates, but destiny proclaims their love deadly to the Drakon; in 1782 she is trying to save her dragon shifting people while in the future she is destroying her dragon shifting people.

    The latest Drakon romantic fantasy (see Queen of Dragons and The Treasure Keeper) is a super thriller with a brilliant refreshing time travel twist of having the same person as heroine and villainess. Honor is terrific in the dual roles as she comes across as real in both eras. Although the climax feels off kilter for this deep character driven entry (read to understand why), Shana Abe provides her audience with a great novel.
