Blurb: Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements. When a mysterious accident transports Simon and his new assistant, Elizabeth West, back in time, Simon finally finds both the proof that he’s been looking for, and the romance that he hasn’t.

In 1920s Manhattan, they find that are more than mobsters vying for power in the city’s speakeasies. Will Simon and Elizabeth’s developing relationship survive the vampires’ teeth? Will they survive to make it back? Or will they be forever out of time?

Review: Okay, so it took me a month to read through this book, but that’s not the books fault. That was me not having any energy, finding out what was wrong with my cat and getting a promotion at work. This all happened back in 2015, my lack of energy in putting up book reviews has set me back years, so now I’m back tracking and catching up.

On from all that though, I did enjoy this book and honestly? I didn’t think I would. I did think it might have taken longer than it should have for the vampire secret to come out, but I guess that’s the point, isn’t it? It’s not a vampire story, it’s a time travel story, after all. Which, speaking of, I’m usually not a fan of time travel stories, just like I am with sci-fi but I guess having that paranormal element of the vampires helped sway me.

The story was written very well, it kept me engaged and interested, always coming back even though it took me a month to read because of other things. Even though it didn’t focus on the vampire until near the end, I still really enjoyed my time with this book.

With these free books, I’m usually not very interested in buying the second, but for this story, I’m invested in seeing what happens, so I might just buy the second.

Thank you for reading my review.
