Thank you Netgalley for this copy!


Jenny Kramer knows she isn't normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them.

When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought. Like a past life.

Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren't alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has travelled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back. 

While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock - and the Order - Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life - and beyond death.

My Review

I loved this book, since I'm a complete sucker for time traveling and historical stuff. I liked that there was a clear description given for the time traveling storyline, although its origin was never really mentioned. The historical references were incorporated quite nicely into the novel. There were all these mysterious aspects involved, the explanations for which were gradually revealed. While some questions were left unanswered, these actually make me all the more excited for the sequel!

Regarding the characters, I would have to say that my favorite was probably Ben. He may have seemed like a jerk at first, but he turned out to have such a sweet personality. I was really enjoying the moments between Ben and Jenny, but then somewhere in the middle of the plot, Nikolai was introduced, and that kind of ruined it for me. I mean, love at first sight? Instalove? Seriously? (I hate instalove.) And after that, it seemed like Jenny completely pushed Ben out of her life. I'm sad to say that I didn't feel much connection or depth when it came to Nikolai. I have to admit, the Nikolai-Jenny romance was quite endearing, but I'd choose Ben over Nikolai any day. 

All in all, I consider this a really good book, and it's something that is sure to interest the time traveling fanatics out there.
