And finally smoke.
Gwen Conway never knew there were so many ways to die. Honestly, it was something she would have been happy not knowing.
Maybe, they really are just dreams. Nightmares. But they won't stop. And dreaming of her death is getting old. Then there's the sleepwalking. She'd like to pass on that too.
Gwen's pretty sure the dreams have something to do with her new job. Which of course, is definitely not just a 'job.'
Don't get her wrong, working for the Archiver of the Time Streams has its perks. Having the power to travel to any past or future time is fantastic. Plus, there's Rafe, the ex-gladiator from the future. She'd like to keep him around too. Not that she would tell him that. It'd go straight to his head.
But she's less than pleased to find herself in the middle of a time travelers' war. Especially against a crazed half-god who has the power to obliterate the existence of any time or place. And the Guardians, her so called allies? All the help they offer are strict rules and smug superiority. Plus, they seem convinced she's already lost, that she's already died.
Gwen is starting to wonder whether she should have read her employment contract more carefully.
Borrowing themes from Greek and Roman legends such as Pandora and the war between the Titans and Olympians, lovers of mythology and fantasy alike will enjoy this mind-bending romp through different times and universes. Well-grounded in the world of today, this urban fantasy stands out from the pack with its complex theories on time travel and unique brand of quirky humor.

We are proud to announce that MIRRORED TIME by J.D. Faulkner is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!
This story is so imaginative and has everything I look for in a book - action, adventure, intrigue, romance, mystery. Gwen is one of the most likeable characters I've seen in a long time. Rafe is perfect and Alistair is brilliant. This writer has an amazing way of pulling you along in the story and then throwing a twist at you that you absolutely did not see coming. I really hope this story is the first in a very long series as I want to read them all - RIGHT NOW!
[JD Faulkner is going places! Her debut novel is a fantastic first foray into a world where anything is possible and time is fluid. Gwen is the kind of character I'd like to have as a best friend: she's snappy, funny, self-depracating and full of sass. In fact, at the end of this book, I kinda felt like she was my best friend! The saucy Rafe is full of goose-bumpy awesomeness, and the story itself is a roller-coaster of fast paced, heart-pumping action, with bits of sweetness and saltiness thrown in. And there is quite the surprise twist, too! No spoilers! I'll just say I didn't see it coming, and I almost ALWAYS do, so Ms. Faulkner got me there! Well played!
Reviewed by Sarah Lowry for Readers' Favorite Mirrored Time by J.D. Faulkner is the story of a young woman’s incredible journey of discovering herself. Gwen believes she is a normal woman who decided not to go into law school because her aunt is fighting cancer. Instead, she answers an ad for a job in the Archives. However, this job is not the legal filing she believed she would be doing. Her new boss, Alistair, holds many secrets, including what the Archives really are: time streams. Gwen must come to terms with the new knowledge that time is not linear, her own ability to use the time streams, and deal with Rafe, the handsome young thief who wants to protect her. Meanwhile, there is a dark force working to get out of its mirrored prison. J.D. Faulkner tells a riveting story in Mirrored Time. I won’t give any spoilers, but the end is a surprising twist that has me aching to read the next book. The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, but I enjoy that personally. This book had me smiling, crying, and on the edge of my seat. Gwen and Rafe were characters that were easy to identify with, and I loved that the story wove in key aspects of Gwen’s “normal” life so that I could journey through the heartache and happiness with her. The plot is fascinating and kept me guessing about what was going to happen. Faulkner’s writing is easy to read and flows well; I forgot I was reading because I was transported into the story. I look forward to the next book.
