(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I haven’t read the first two books in this trilogy, so I appreciated having a summary of the first books at the start of this one.
I felt this was quite a unique take on the time travel and parallel worlds. It took me a little while to understand what was going on with the virus and why Eva had different memories, but once I got into the book, it became really easy to read.
There were quite a few things I liked about this book. Matthias was an interesting character and I liked reading about his relationship with Seth, though I would have liked to see a bit more of their history. There were a few times when I got somewhat confused with the different characters, but for the most part, I liked a lot of them. Well, except for Cassius. I couldn’t see anything that wasn’t evil about him.
I did like Seth and Eva’s relationship and them both as characters. I could really believe in the feelings they had for each other and I appreciated that Seth didn’t fall apart completely when things happened to Eva. He was still capable of doing things, even when he was really worried/desperate for her safety.
I… wasn’t so taken by the way loads of women seemed to be eyeing Seth up. I have problems with male or female characters becoming the ‘optimum male/female’. Of course, it wasn’t anything like as bad as some of the books I’ve read, but even so…
The book was well-written, but I didn’t think it was necessary to keep switching between third and first person. That did make it a bit hard to read.
At some point in the future, I would definitely like to read the other books in this trilogy.
