Read The Syndicate Timewaves #1

Job is to seamlessly slip through the past in search of items of value to the syndicate's clienteleStassi's next assignment takes her to Paris in the 1920’s in search of a lost manuscript by one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers She and her partner Gaige are swept up in the City of Light during the height of fashion and culture as alluring a locale as they’ve ever visited But. I enjoyed this one so much that rather than reach back into the dark abyss of the bazillion unread Kindle books I already own I bought and have already started the next book in this seriesOverall this is very very good An adventure in 1920 s Paris seeking to obtain and copy a never published novel by a fictitious famous author trying not to be outted as time travelers from the future there s a bit of a sweet romance but it s not angst ridden and is just one thread in a complex plot There s also a mysterious serial killer on the loose A serial killer that was not recorded in history In addition to all that Stassi is seeking information to help her find out about her unknown birth parents due to a clue from that time and place The MC Stassi and her partner tease each other like brother and sister obviously care for each other non romantically and are loyal I enjoyed their relationship as well as Stassi s relationship with her best friend Molly The characters all have their own personalities and truly feel like individuals There s humor here and a lot of heart As well as mysteries and adventureI ve noticed a couple minor editing errors but no than you might find in a traditionally published novel One continuity error but it was something extremely minor and unimportant I also noticed a couple small anachronisms A couple characters in 1920 s Paris call the protagonist Ms rather than Miss Another character tells a funny story about a woman who spent an evening with the back of her dress stuck in her hose which only happens with pantyhose which were not yet invented So not perfect but relatively minor issuesA few logically uestionable issues due to playing around with time I think those could have been explained so they made sense a bit better but nothing worthy of real complaint One thing I truly did uestion as something that seems like it would effect history that wasn t explained to my satisfaction It would be spoilery to be specific It happened at the end so I m also thinking it may be addressed in book 2 Overall I really enjoyed it The story is engaging and interesting the writing is good and I like the characters

The Syndicate Timewaves #1

A seedier side of life lurks beneath the glamorous façade and the pair uickly learns this run is dangerous than any of their previous missionsBecause history isn’t playing out as it should be a first for the syndicate When the stakes are raised and it becomes a matter of life or death Stassi and Gaige must ultimately decide how far they’re willing to go to ensure the future as they know. I received an electronic reading copy in exchange for an honest review35 StarsI have such conflicted feelings about this book because it had such an amazing premise an interesting story line but it just did not deliver in being a solid book It was full of so much detail which I don t really mind but much of it was so unnecessary and did nothing to advance the story Too much filler and that s saying a lot as this book is over 500 pages It drags and it s such a shame because the story is definitely interestingStassi is a runner for an underground syndicate that is responsible for traveling back in time to secure priceless artifacts and bring them back to present day for their elite set of clients When a run to Paris in 1925 to secure an unpublished manuscript becomes available Stassi and her partner Gaige are all over it Problems arise when the two find themselves in the city with a historically undocumented serial killer on the loose When the killer takes a particular interest in Stassi and her partner is accused of being the murderer the pair have to decide what is necessary and what they will risk in order to complete their missionWhat made this book so interesting was undoubtedly the era it was placed in The futuristic aspects annoyed me a little bit particularly the DOG Scan I mean really but Paris is Paris and the 1920 s were such an interesting time Not to mention that the two must gain the friendship of an artsy group of people that include the likes of Ernest Hemmingway and Gertrude Stein in order to complete their mission That was my favorite part As an artistic person myself I found myself completely jealous of Stassi s abilities to go back in time and associate with such persons How fascinating that would beI also really liked Charles Stassi s love interest when she gets to Paris I found myself really crushed when I knew she was going to have to say goodbye and can honestly say that I was a little bit surprised by the ending of this book Although there was part of me that saw it coming and I m a little glad it played out the way it did I don t think I was ready to say goodbye to Charles just yetThere are a lot of different things happening in this book that almost branch out into their own little story lines and they really make up the bulk of the story There s Stassi s need to find about her locket so she can identify her parents there s the manuscript they need to secure for a client there s this unknown serial killer on the loose there s the rogue runner who s MIA from another syndicate and there is the blossoming relationship between Stassi s love interest Charles So much going on all at once and yet somehow this book moved along at such a slow pace That is the reason for my disappointment and my lower rating of the book It was all interesting to me and I wanted to know what was going to happen with each plot point but my lack of willpower to read through the dull parts had me putting this book down for lengthier periods of timeIf you have the patience and the book sounds interesting to you I say pick it up Overall it is not an uneventful read I m hoping for a stronger seuel for this Timewaves series

In a future where time travel has been outlawed a black market exists for anyone with the money connections and nerve to reuest items from days past As a Runner for one of the underground syndicates that now controls the timewaves Stassi 2446 89 has seen it all the fall of Rome the rise of Hitler the end of democracy the establishment of time tourism and the devastating conseuences of it Her. 35 starsLove me some time travel I didn t even realize that this is one long ass book though But I actually really liked it although Return Once More is still my favourite time travel book I really liked the characters especially our heroine Stassi and I loved the fact that they time traveled to 1920 s Paris Charles is an interesting character as well although at times a bit too mysterious The only problem I had with this book was that it was way too slow at times and yet way too action packed at other times and their main mission itself The whole mission doesn t seem so important that they would risk their lives for it numerous times Or maybe that s just me not really caring that much about the manuscript they re supposed to take I have to mention the ridiculous curse words as well Shant I was choking on air every time I ve read thisOverall this really was a fun book and I m looking forward to the seuel
