Time Travel and Suspense, Oh My


I’ve read plenty of free or nearly free e-books  Most I don’t finish reading, but if I do finish it, I do not criticize an authors attempt to create something. Here are a few that I have enjoyed. I read this book in June. It is called, OUT OF TIME by Monique Martin.It’s free to read, (As of 9-18-16)

“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?”

I found Out Of Time to have a really unique take on the vampire genre. I appreciated the setting was the 1920’s, and I didn’t have to deal with any hunky English/Scotsmen.Not that I don’t like hunky, but it isn’t that kind of book. I can’t say much more. There are twists in spoilers with every breath I want to utter.

Those twists I want to utter might belong to this book. Marking Time. Another time travel book that might interest someone, and because I am mixing Out Of Time in my head with this book, Marking Time, which I read in May, I should mention it too. It’s a young adult book. It’s free as of today (9-18-16) as well.

Both books have interesting premises.

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything … a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a Tube station transports Saira to the nineteenth century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.


I read LOW TIDE  by Dawn Lee McKenna, in April. You can read it for free with Kindle Unlimited.

“Lt. Maggie Redmond is called to a crime scene on St. George Island, where she is met with the body of Gregory Boudreaux. The medical examiner calls it a suicide, but no one knows that Maggie has a horrible connection to the dead man.”

Characters you can imagine might be real somewhere. August
