She was born in New England into a family of weirdoes. Being an only child, she quickly learned to amuse herself with quirky pastimes. It was only inevitable that she'd turn to reading and writing. After writing fanciful (and sickeningly sweet) love stories, Anya branched out into erotica, paranormal romance, young adult and urban fantasy. She currently resides in the American Midwest with her cats and a good man!

    Amazing

    Usually, free books are,well, crappy. To much spelling errors,dumb story line and it ends to quickly. But that wasn't the case for this book. It was amazing. Now most people would give paragraphs and paragraphs of detail but all you need to know is that this book has it. It has a dash of romance,action,and it makes you think a little. That's exactly what i look for in a book.

    A Lovely Must-Read!

    This book is no ordinary typical paranormal romance novel. It's plot is rarely boring&the characters will make you fall in love. The female lead isn't a stereotypical weak annoying teenage girl but quite the opposite. The male lead will make you wish guys like him were real. This book deserves applause. Not bad for a free book actually. Two thumbs up&5/5 stars!

    Its good :) read this review if considering it.

    I thought it sounded kind of corny at first especially in the overview but it isnt. Aeon is snarky with "dry wit and an evil streak" who practically called herself an introvert and is really quiet, while Alex is the new kid who is also being filmed and falls victim to Aeons charm. But does Alex have an evil streak too? Im not completely finished with it yet, but it is definatly good and holds my interest.

    Great book! Great read! The ending was a tad rushed, and I wish that it had been stretched into a series.

    Loved it

    I stayed up till 2 in the morning just to read this. I loved the characters. While in my opinion it could have used a bit more action and conflict it's still my favorite book. I like that its supper clean and good for teenagers like me.

    Aeon is a jerk. No wonder she didn't have any friends at her school.

    Enjoyable...

    I was pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up liking this book. Aeon's character was funny and wity and I never found her to be annoying. Alex is freaking awesome and adorable.
    It ended too quickly, I think, but other than that it was a great book!

    Good free read

    This was an good book over all but as the story went on the plot seemed to move faster as if the author really wanted to finish. Also the author really did not go into enough detail or involvement of her father and was rather vague about her interactions with her dad. The fight seen in the end was also lacking in depth. Overall great concept for a book and am hoping for more books from this author... maybe even sequal?

    Amazing!

    Usually free books are crappy and not put together well with a bunch of grammer mistakes. Times Daughter is a great read that I could not put down. I wish it would have turned into a series. Really looking forward to reading more from this writers work. Recomend to all.

    Plot...what you are doing? Plot go home. You are drunk.

    ** spoiler alert ** I think this was meant to be three books.....

    Book one - an introverted and shy girl is chosen as part of a documentary project to show what school is like for teenagers in a small town, along with 5 other teenagers. She learns to overcome some of her shyness and reach out to others.

    Book two - We may call him Father Time, but what if he was really your Father? Mortal Tiffany wins the heart of Time, but when her daughter starts showing unexpected abilities, that create ripples across the entire universe, she realizes this will unleash a legion of time-witches and manipulators, all seeking to control the power her daughter, Aeon can wield. As Aeon struggles to come to grips with her new-found identity and stop the world from destruction in a race against time.

    Book three - Sometimes when things seem to good to be true, they just might be. Alex was everything she ever wanted, handsome, caring, adoring. Until one moonlit night she witnesses his transformation, and realizes her boyfriend is a shapeshifter. A shapeshifter filled with possessive jealous and suspicion. Drawing a fine line between watching out for her safety, and stalking her like prey. Pretty soon, she finds herself trapped, when Alex and his family provide her, and her struggling post-cancer Mother with a place to live, and a job that finally pays the bills. If she turns away from Alex, it could destroy everything, and cost her, her life, because she knows too much.

    Instead this is a book with a confusion of unrealized plots. There really isn't a reason for the documentary/camera crews. It adds nothing, the characters still would have met and the plot proceeded exactly as it did without that by-line. It either needed to be more integral or left out.

    The daughter of time plot, is hardly relied on. She has a dream something bad will happen, and that she's been given the gift to stop time. When she does, it creates ripples sensed by the paranormal community, to wit a family of shapeshifters living in the area. No apparently there's time witches, and communities based around time manipulation, but that plot is never, ever gone into. You don't meet anyone from the time-control-community or know what they can do. There could be some cool action sequences with time-warping ninja's or something....but no dice.

    Her relationship with Alex is odd....he commits to the relationship way to soon, is easily jealous, possessive and violent, or over the top hanging on her every word obsessively. He's also almost too perfect, he's beautiful, athletic, he excels in every subject, he's just a little not great at basketball. Yes, his life just sucks. And it wraps up with them talking about "being my mate forever." When they are all of 18 (I think the plan was to get married in the future, but essentially he proposed she accepted).

    The bad thing coming she was warned about, was a league of zombie-giant wendigo's, that they take down. And....that was it. Are the wendigos there because of her time control abilities? A reason is never presented for why they are there.

    So all these interesting plots are sort of presented, but never developed into full stories. I liked the character of Aeon, before she got enveloped into Alex, the writing wasn't bad, just the development needed some help.

    Meh...

    There wasn't much of a plot and there was no real climax. The author started many subplots but never really finnished them so therenwas no real closure. I could have been written.by.a 12yr old in English class, the word choise wasn't very good and the characters didn't have much depth. With a lot more thought the story could have been much better.

    Both liked and disliked

    It started out good, but wrapped up in too much of a hurry. Ending was too quick - not really enough explaination as to why the 'things' were there at that place and that time, & why so many. Ending felt like the author just got bored with the story and put 'they lived happily ever after - the end'. Would like this book more if the ending was more thought out.

    Seriously?!

    First. That ending was the worst thing ever. They never even solved the conflict!!!
    Second. It felt like I was reading a cheesy version of Twilight but it was about a girl who could stop time.....
    Third. I still liked it. It was free and didn't have too many gramatic errors. Deserves about a two and ahalf, maybe three stars

    Bad

    I must be reading a different book than everyone else. I coukdnt get past pg 75. It was boring, stupid and already seemed to be headed into a twilight type story. Wasye if time and space. Would give it minus stars but have to give one star to review. Trust me, it doesnt even deserve that.

    Great

    I thought this book was amazing. It provided action and romance. You can usually tell why books are free, because they are just poorly written with a pointless plot line. This book wasnt like that at all. I admit that some of the major plot points passed quicker than I would have liked, but it was still a great read. Being a freshman in highschool, i can relate to the social aspects (obviously not the fantasy portions) like Ashley being a lying, rude teenage girl. It was a great book that i woukd recommend to my friends.

    Good premise, lacking execution.  I wanted to like this book more, but the subplots fizzled, the ending was anticlimactic, and Aeon never really faced any consequences or challenges associated with her emerging powers.  There was a lot of potential for conflict with secondary characters that the author never delivered, and, although the book was free of spelling errors, there were many word choice errors that an editor should have caught.  Unfortunately, I will be passing on more works by this author.

    It was ok.

    The author has good ideas but doesn't elaborate enough. They didn't really solve the problem. If you continued the book and involve her time powers,dad, and how they really solved the problem it would be better
