I just finished reading âRemembranceâ by Michelle Madow, which is the first part of the Transcend Time Saga. And I am not completely sure if I like this series or not. What I am sure about is that I want to read the second book now in near future, to find out how I feel. And I am actually considering leaving my âstar votingâ open until I am sure.
Elizabeth and Drew are two really likeable characters and the author managed to create an interesting setting that connects them to their former âselfâsâ. The story is told in a believable way and at a good and steady pace. The writing of the author is good and fluent.
So by now I guess you wonder âif she liked everythingâ¦ what is her issue with the book?â â¦ My issue is that just now I have no idea where the story is going. After finishing the first book I can only judge the writing and not the story itself. So while I am saying this I made up my mind to give my stars for this book with 3,5 which are only for the writing and not for the story.
I have a very specific issue with the story at this moment and I need to see where it leads to either get rid of that picture in my head or to confirm it. There were certain parts of the story when my mind was suddenly invaded with pictures of âTwilightâ by Stephenie Meyer.
It was not even the story itself but just certain settings â¦ like the description of two hands touching by accident in a car, than going dress shopping but leaving friends behind and this heated discussion between Drew and Elizabeth about Elizabeth not giving up on certain things.
I liked the Twilight books, so maybe this is just me, but to really find my opinion on the story I will have to read more. The end of this first book did not give me any direction it just left me with the feeling that something is about to happen.
But heyâ¦ thatâs not bad is it ?So on to book 2 then â¦
the series still continues – but so far …
