Mari had her time in the past and is finally home. Unfortunately, she didn't understand the goddess' warning that traveling to the past would have consequences. She could never have imagined what those consequences would be, but she quickly finds out that not everything is the way she left it. Now Mari must learn how to time travel if she wants to put her life back into the order it was before she went into the past to be with Seth. Mari soon discovers that time traveling isn't as easy as she thought it, and the goddess refuses to help her learn. Mari must turn to an old friend, someone she never planned to see again, and get his help if she wants to right what she has changed. But even that might come with a price.
Mari travels into the past again to find loved ones. Her journey brings a few answers, and a few more questions, to the puzzle that is her life. Mari can quickly see why her mother went to the future, and Mari needs to do the same as soon as she can to bring her loved ones back. The past is far more complicated, and dangerous than she ever imagined-particularly for Mari. She might just be the missing piece who can solve everyone else's puzzles.

I couldn't not read it through. It enthralled me.
An absolute perfect follow-up to Book 1: Carnelian. In my opinion one of the most positive things about Book 2 is the increased level of historical time travel. Mari has made choices that lead her to make sacrifices. For me it was great to have more sci-fi (time travel) and more historical (ancient lands) local! Mari grows a lot in the book and author B. Kristen McMichael did a superb job allowing the character to try, fail, learn, lose. I'm still in love with the sub-characters
When I read a book like Chrysoprase, I remember exactly why I love series so much. The first book of this series was good, but this one is great! I love being able to get to know characters on a much deeper level than a standalone allows. I also love time travel books, but unfortunately a lot of them get to be super confusing. I guess it is just the way it goes with such a confusing genre. One of the reasons I loved this series so much is because the timelines are handled so flawlessly. You are never confused about where the characters are! This installment begins where the other one left off. Mari needs to figure out a way to get Seth back to the future. Unfortunately she needs to enlist the help of a person who is quite suspect. I don't want to say to much and leave a spoiler, but there was so many twists and turns that you are literally on the edge of your seat the entire time you read this book. I can not wait for the third book to come out.
