Overview

Timeless by Crystal Collier

Time is the enemy.

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat-along with an unfathomable evil, and her own heart-the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Timeless is the third book in the Maiden of Time Trilogy. Nineteen year old Alexia, uses her ability to control time to go back 500 years from the year 1768, where the first book of the series begins. Her goal is to stop the evil Soulless from ever having been created. As with the previous two books, the world building is well done. The flowery words vividly describe the setting, and the reader can feel the tension of the battle scenes and the emotion involved in all of the conflicts. While it is best read as part of the trilogy, readers will get a good idea of what has happened in the first three books. This is revealed in the third chapter. The romance between Alexia and Kiran still sizzles, even though it has been experienced before in a different time. The characters are all well-developed and believable. It is nice to see how Alexia has matured through the series. There is a surprise twist at the end, which was cleverly done. Timeless is a book that would appeal to those who enjoy fantasy/romance/adventure. Highly recommended.

I've read the other books in the trilogy and was looking forward to this final adventure. This is not a stand-alone, since the story and characters build on the happenings of the other books. To stop the evil Soulless from existing, Alexia goes back 500 years in time, leaving the love of her life behind and knowing that she will not return. While searching/waiting for the moment to complete her mission, she finds herself leading her people as they attempt to survive eradication. When another world is discovered, one which guarantees a life of safety and peace, it might be the solution they all have dreamed for--if they can find a way to get there, that is. The writing in this book immediately blew me away. The author does an amazing job of bringing the first battle scenes into beautiful harmony with the magical aspects, creating a deadly dance. Alexia has matured in so many ways, having little to do with the scared girl she was in book one. Her self-assured attitude carries so much strength that the power radiates from her, making her a true heroine. As the plot thickens, doubt creeps in but that's exactly what she needs to make her sympathetic. The emotions come across clearly, drawing in until every tear, smile and heart-breaking defeat is tangible. The romance is quite a clever twist. Of course, Alexia has one love in her life, but the author still finds a way to bring the tension back as if there were a first love all over again. Some moments became a bit repetitive and the reasoning behind secrets grew thin, but not enough to ruin the increasing tension. The hero is as wonderful as before, even when both don't see eye to eye. Emotional scenes are packed in between action packed battles and layers of intrigue. There's never a boring moment as one threat after the other rolls in, promising a demise. The evil side is easy to dislike and digs in like a knife. Every victory is coated with defeat, making this a story not to put down until the last page. Only toward the end did the situation grow a little fuzzy around the edges. But the last scene is as epic as it has to be, placing an end to a lovely trilogy. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author and enjoyed this series so much that I just had to share my thoughts.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel back in time? I have, thinking how neat it would be to meet my ancestors and see how they lived. Or how about traveling to the future and see what the world would be like hundreds of years from now. Would you still be you in another time? Interesting to think about. If time travel, adventure, magic, and very interesting people intrigue you then take a look at Author Crystal Collier’s latest novel TIMELESS, Book Three in the Maiden of Time Trilogy. In TIMELESS, nineteen-year-old Alexia is now 500 years in the past, away from her husband, the father of her soon to be born baby. She is back in time to undo the mistakes of the past and of the future. Kiren, Alexia’s husband in the future, is also there in the past. That is not supposed to be and complicates matters. What follows is a gentle, confusing romance for the two of them as well as danger for them all, including the unborn baby. Crystal Collier has created a world of interesting characters dealing with life and death and mixed emotions. I love Alexia. She’s brave and smart and concerned for her child’s future if she should die in child birth. She has mixed emotions about Kiren in the future and in the present time. I can not imagine what it would be like to face your husband who did not know you because he had not met you until centuries later. And Kiren? I can see why she loves him. He is human with a slight temper; he’s also gentle and kind and in love with Alexia. I hoped all would work out for them, even in a different century. Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic. TIMELESS is a fascinating story that will keep you reading to see if Alexia succeeds in her quest and if she and Kiren live happily ever after. Oh, what about the baby? You’ll find out when you read the story. Enjoy.

It's so sad to see this series come to an end. I loved getting to know a younger, different Kiren. Seeing them fall in love all over again? It was intoxicating. This book had a little more of a thriller feel to it than I remember the last books having, which I loved. I think it needed that to truly let you in on the gravity of the situation that these characters are in. It kept me gripping the book right down to the last pages. It was bittersweet in many ways, but Whew! I'm still not sure what to think about that ending! And not in a bad way. Although I do have questions. It still has me thinking. The ARC of Moonless by Crystal Collier was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Note: This book was provide by the author in exchange for an honest review. This review is part of the Timeless blog tour. Synopsis: Alexia is a heroine unlike any other. She is a hybrid of a human man and a woman of a race called the Passionate. Passionate are nearly immortal creatures. Each has special powers: the ability to heal, the ability transport people, the ability to influence minds. Alexia controls time itself. She could turn the clock back a little to prevent a calamity. She could stop time and dodge a killing blow. Now her abilities will be put to the ultimate test. Heavy with child, she had to leave the man she loved and travel five hundred years back in time. A time just before the Soulless were created. Her goal, save people she loves by stopping an evil force that creates the Soulless. The Soulless turn people into tormented monsters who devour souls. Each moonless night they must hunt, creating more Soulless. Here, she meets people she counted friends, five hundred years before she was born. It is a time complicated by the Holy Roman Church which has been tricked by unscrupulous men to declare war on the Passionate. Time is now the Maiden of Time’s enemy. She is at risk of capture by the Church or a deadly encounter with the force the created the Soulless. All this at a time when even the strongest woman could die in childbirth. Review: This is the final book in Crystal Collier’s Maiden of Time Trilogy. In all honesty, I’ve never been a huge fan of time travel stories. Dr. Who was interesting since most of his stories took place in one setting before moving onto the next point in time. As Alexia made ready to journey back five hundred years, the various temporal paradoxes ran through my head. Could she somehow prevent herself from being born? How would she interact with those Passionate comrades at a time before she knew them? Could preventing the genesis of the Soulless create even more temporal headaches than it solved. Crystal Collier managed to work through these paradoxes. What’s more she uses them to formulate Alexia’s last chapter. Much of the story takes place in the thirteenth century. The Passionate are fighting for their lives against people who want to control them. There is a traitor in their midst. Alexia’s beloved Kiren further complicates things as a younger version of himself falls madly in love with his future wife. All this while her pregnancy is nearing its end. A pregnancy she could easily die from. All the while, the entity that causes the genesis of the Soulless is brooding, biding its time, and manipulating events like a master chess player. Crystal Collier’s writing style has certainly matured, especially in her handling of subplots. While all three books were great, this is the best.
