Heart of Time by Skye MacKinnon

What would you do if you could control time?

In a world where magic is outlawed, Eona has been hiding her true nature all her life, only using it to make her circus performances even more spectacular. She's always known that her ability to manipulate time could make her a target, but she couldn't have prepared for being kidnapped, manipulated and imprisoned.

After weeks in prison, the Royal sorcerer Lassadar offers her a way out by training her. But can she trust the King's right hand man?

In order to figure out what he wants from her, she needs to explore her own magic, the bond she feels with a mythical creature, and the feelings she has for a beautiful elven woman.

This book is the first in the Ruined Heart series, a reverse harem fantasy trilogy. There is no cliffhanger, and it can be read as a stand-alone.
The second book in the series, Heart of Four, is now available to preorder.

This one hooked me from the first page! It was probably because the story started out similar to a fairy tale, and I have always loved those. I was also fascinated with the different types of mythical creatures that were incorporated into the story. It was a very original idea, and a total win. Another thing I enjoyed was the amount of time spent on world and character development. I think world development is very important when a story takes place in a mythical land, and this one had the perfect amount of detail. I never felt like the story got bogged down, and I never felt like I couldn't picture the world in my mind. There are many wonderful, and evil, characters in this one, too, and each one is wonderfully developed. I am excited to see what comes next!

The story was good but a bit wordy at times. I think the author could have used with a little more attention put on the characters and less on surrounding details. Still it was good enough that I would read more in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite Heart of Time by Skye MacKinnon is the first book in the Ruined Heart series. Eona has always stood out with her naturally white hair and her ability to manipulate time, but she's found comfort in her life with the traveling family that found her when she was a child. When she's arrested for the use of magic, she's imprisoned in a dungeon until seemingly being rescued by a sorcerer that claims to only want to teach her how to use her magic better. While Eona learns ways to tap into powers she never knew she had, she finds herself trusting the sorcerer for reasons she doesn't even know. As Eona develops a bond with a mystical and mysterious creature, she discovers a darkness in her sanctuary that threatens to destroy her. A connection with a beautiful Elven woman could give Eona the strength to escape and reclaim her power as her own. The plot opens with a gritty fairytale that tells the story of a girl that lost her heart to save her mother, only to lose the ability to love, which leads to her eventually killing her husband when he defends their daughter. This turns out to be Eona's own beginning which takes an even grittier turn as she's taken from the family that loves her and thrown into the treachery and darkness under the king. Heart of Time is set up as a reverse harem love story, but only sets up traces of a greater and more complex love story to happen. The plot feels like the beginning to a larger story and puts all the pieces into place for something bigger. This is a dark world with Eona finding herself in the middle of it all, but she finds a light in that world through a little mythical creature that is born and forms a connection with her. Eona also forms a friendship with a healer, bonding over their shared love of herbs and plants. They have an honest and sweet relationship, but it takes a back seat to more pressing and chaotic events that occur. What is seen of him suggests he's being kept there under the sorcerer in a similar way that she is. A fantasy adventure soars in Heart of Time as Skye MacKinnon brings to life a story with a strong heroine, a sinister darkness lurking, a powerful mythical being, a magical connection to nature, and the beginnings of a love story that leaves you wanting more.
