Life had always been an exciting adventure to Heather Higgins. Even after the death of her father, the loss of a fortune, and a disappointing proposal, she yet sees the future as bright and full of possibilities. At the miraculous appearance of a mysterious man with piercing green eyes and a powerful intellect, Heather knows she has met her destiny. Whether he likes it or not.

In pursuit of a dangerous mission, Ammon Maharahi doesn't have time for spoiled, doe eyed beauties. But no matter how hard he tries, he cannot dismiss her. Amidst his frantic travels through time and space in the effort to fix a dark future, his illness wears him down. He must find and stop a fellow time traveller before it is too late and all is lost. Tired, ill and disheartened, he wonders if he is fighting a losing battle when Heather Higgins is thrust into his path, infusing energy and life into his weary heart.

But time is running out. The answer lies with a gifted university professor from the future, as bizarre as she is brilliant. As Ammon and Heather race through time to unlock the puzzle, they know Ammon's life and the future of all humankind slip closer to catastrophe with every tick of the clock.

Kayla's Thoughts:

While this book, and all of the other books so far in the Fall series, can be read as a stand-alone novel, I actually do not recommend it. Because this book, this wonderful third book, in the series, explains how it all began, well, in a sense at least. Because technically to these stories there is truly no beginning or end, there is only a connection that each person and experience has with each other. A connection that intertwines and becomes a magnificent puzzle that without each separate piece would not exist.

When reading the first and second installments in this series, I found the writing to be phenomenal. It just had this quality about it that seemed to breathe such life into the characters. A special quality that forced me to keep reading. I just had to know what was going to happen next. And while this third installment had just that same quality, I felt the beginning to be a bit forced. It just for some reason felt, I'm not sure, like it was missing something or had been hurried in order to reach the heart of what the story was truly about. But once the heart of the story was finally reached, it felt like seeing an old friend. That hurriedness was gone, and the familiarity of the first two books was there once more.

As always, I absolutely loved the main characters of this story. Heather Higgins is a brash little firecracker, while Ammon Maharahi is a sickly man trying to save the future by changing the past. They will be connected in a way that the other characters in the other books in this series never were. And they will experience a grand journey that, again, the other characters probably could only ever dream of.

Verdict:

This is definitely the clincher. It is the book that binds them all together, and I feel this story to be especially grand because of that fact. But I know there are more to come. More time travel, more amazing characters, more unusual situations, more love... Just more. And I cannot wait.
