Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.{Goodreads}
  Ok, so first off I have only read three time traveling books/series each one of them unique and different from each other. Each one of them great. Each one of them capturing a real interest and love from me. Obviously this book/series is one of those three.

  Although I can't say this one is a favorite of mine it was still extremely good. Throughout the book I had mixed feelings here and there. At one time it would be super super good then the next it would be well...not so good. I got confused a lot. There seemed to be bits of information missing. There seemed to be a literal time loop from haha..time to time! It just didn't run as smoothly as I would have liked. I think part of me blames the main girl. I can't say I truly liked her. She was cool and she kept a level head but something about her, like this book, didn't quite click with me enough to give me major love.

  I enjoyed this book...I just didn't love it. The ending is what gave it the rating I am going to give it at the end. It was intense and insane!! Totally team Jack just so you know. Him at the end...hell, THE end made me fall in love and want more. I think the beginning of the book was just a starter this is another one of those books that was good but has so much more potential as it goes on. I felt some of the characters were really underdeveloped and the plot was a bit here and there never really giving me the sense of a real goal but I still liked it. Again, not my favorite but still really good. Because of its uniquness and hot boys ;D ok and its killer ending this book deserves its stars. I would have liked some touch ups. It felt a bit forced and pushed I think but....sigh yes again I will say...I enjoyed this book. I think everyone should give it a shot because after looking past the little things it was really worth it and a great story.

  So here it is short and sweet. Some get it long and some get it short thats just how the review biz goes :) * case it wasn't clear...after all of my nick picking this book is really good. There is no doubt about it. I am not in any way saying it was bad I just had a phew honest dislikes and hopes for it. :D

~The Author:
Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.

It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.

Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.

Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, was published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013. Fissure (Chronicles of the Interred #2) is scheduled for release on June 22, 2013.
