    The best way for be to describe how I felt after reading this book would be that I felt let down The description of the book sounded so interesting, because I love the idea of time travel and I love romance At first, I was really enjoying the book Well, I enjoyed the prologue It was interesting, had action, and it had mystery However, I was pretty bored after the prologue I couldn t really connect with the main character, Madeline Despite that, I decided to keep reading, because I really The best way for be to describe how I felt after reading this book would be that I felt let down The description of the book sounded so interesting, because I love the idea of time travel and I love romance At first, I was really enjoying the book Well, I enjoyed the prologue It was interesting, had action, and it had mystery However, I was pretty bored after the prologue I couldn t really connect with the main character, Madeline Despite that, I decided to keep reading, because I really wanted to get to the time travel portion of the book I loved the time travel in this book It made the book exciting at those points, and I really liked the Messenger concept of the book I won t say much about the Messenger , because I don t want to give away any spoilers However, I wish there wasdevelopment of the history of the Messenger The world building was awesome, but I wantedof it I felt like there wasn t enough development of a lot of things in this book For example, I felt like the romance should have been developedThe plot was okay It dragged at some points and it was high paced at other points It was never very constant, which was disappointing However, my biggest complaint about this book is Madeline I could not stand her She did so many dumb things through out the book I constantly was either rolling my eyes at her or screaming at my book because she was so dumb Madeline really made the book unenjoyable I wanted to tell her to stop talking, because she was just so annoying She was in the 1600s and would say words like whatevs Overall, the book had great potential I think I would have liked the book a lotif Madeline wasn t such a horrible main character Everything else had potential to be really interesting I will not be reading the next book, because I hated Madeline so much This book would be great if was rewritten so that Madeline was less annoying, the plot was better paced, andthings were developed through out the story MissDaemon2.5 5 FangsThank you Netgalley for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review MrsLeif s Two Fangs About ItFacebook

    Full disclosure I requested and received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review If I had to describe The Messenger in one word it would be disappointing The prologue started off promisingly enough, with a girl obviously the main character running through the woods in a panic Okay, that sounds cool let s get on with the main event My excitement dampened throughout the first few chapters because of the pretty stereotypical main character who has lost her parent Full disclosure I requested and received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review If I had to describe The Messenger in one word it would be disappointing The prologue started off promisingly enough, with a girl obviously the main character running through the woods in a panic Okay, that sounds cool let s get on with the main event My excitement dampened throughout the first few chapters because of the pretty stereotypical main character who has lost her parent in a horrific accident years ago but I soldiered on When I got to when Madeline time travelled I got pretty excited because I like time travel stories, which is why I requested this book in the first place Then that point in the story is where the true disappointment set in.It s hard to enjoy a book when you absolutely cannot stand the main character and I couldn t stand Madeline I just wanted to reach in and slap her across her loud mouth Constantly Okay, she s a little disoriented when she travels back in time, I ll grant her that But once she gets on her feet and realizes I better play along with these people or they ll call me a witch and hang me she then proceeds to act like a modern stereotypical American teenager She blurts out things at inappropriate times, uses modern slang and generally acts like she wants people to start lynching her I get it, not all teenagers are smart and would instantly adapt to the 1600s Calling such a transition a culture shock would be quite an understatement But really Using the word whatevs is definitely not going to ease people s suspicions about you Ugh.Aside from a narrator that really is Too Stupid To Live, the book s premise isn t all that bad Sure, it s not the most original but the whole Messenger angle was sort of interesting Special people go back in time to right wrongs and or meet their destiny Hunters try to prevent this Unfortunately, Pamela DuMond never really gets into fleshing the whole story of the Messengers out because Madeline s stupidity gets her mentor accused of witchcraft Even the little knowledge Samuel has isn t really enough to satisfy my curiosity I know this is the first book in a series but even that doesn t really excuse the fact that we getquestions than answers So I give Pamela DuMond marks for potentially awesome world building, but I can t honestly say much about it because we didn t learn all that much about it.The plot is okay, but it s also nothing to brag about It s not fast, but not too slow and it was interesting enough to keep me reading even though I began to really loathe Madeline My only real complaint about the plot was that while some things were focused on too much, other things were neglected, like the growing attraction between Madeline and Samuel Yes, they spend some time together but in those interactions I really wasn t feeling the sparks fly It just kind of felt contrived by the author because of course all YA novels have to have some romance.Overall, the book would not be a bad book if not for the fact Madeline is just a really horrible main character Sadly for us, though, we re pretty much stuck in her head the whole time so there is no escaping the fact that The Messenger fell flat on its face It had so much potential and did not live up to it.I give this book 1 5 stars

    First of all, that cover is literally to die for One of my favorites Reminds me a bit of Entwined Gorgeous but it draws you in Very lovely.Now for the innards This was a very well rounded book That may not sound like a compliment but let me explain why I think it is First of all the plot is really interesting The whole soul mate thing was an added twist that I didn t even think about while reading and was quite pleased as the relationship between Samuel and Madeline grows It s very well First of all, that cover is literally to die for One of my favorites Reminds me a bit of Entwined Gorgeous but it draws you in Very lovely.Now for the innards This was a very well rounded book That may not sound like a compliment but let me explain why I think it is First of all the plot is really interesting The whole soul mate thing was an added twist that I didn t even think about while reading and was quite pleased as the relationship between Samuel and Madeline grows It s very well done.Secondly, the characters are great The Reverend had me steaming at the ears I wanted to shake that guy I know it sounds like I am a violent person but really I swear to you, I am not But this guy brought any violence I may have lurking inside, out He was such a jerk It doesn t help that this plot was in 1675 and if you haven t heard they did not have great patience with anyone or thing that was different which is highly upsetting to me But honestly for the times, this guy was the epitome of what these scared, little colonizers were thinking and he was strong enough, powerful enough, and willful enough to voice his sordid opinion Sadly There are a few other characters that shape Madeline s life, whether for good or for bad but it did seem like there were quite a few villains I did not trust anyone Well, honestly that also includes people that were absolutely not villains but the times and that age just scared me so much I really didn t want them calling her a witch and the things she does definitely does stand out It s nearly horrific in a way.The ending was very unexpected I should have expected it but totally didn t and I m not kicking myself There are clues but they are spread out and so few that I didn t even THINK about where this would end, I just knew I hoped it would go where I wanted Pamela Dumond does a fabulous job of tying it all together and then dropping us over a cliffhanger

    Read This Book If you love time traveling stories you have a guilty pleasure for historical romances diverse stories involving race and racism resonate with you you enjoy books that leave you hanging in suspense until the very last page.I really enjoy time traveling books I just wish I readof them The Messenger combines my interest in time travel with historical fiction, and I really love that combination because there is always that major predicament is the main character going to Read This Book If you love time traveling stories you have a guilty pleasure for historical romances diverse stories involving race and racism resonate with you you enjoy books that leave you hanging in suspense until the very last page.I really enjoy time traveling books I just wish I readof them The Messenger combines my interest in time travel with historical fiction, and I really love that combination because there is always that major predicament is the main character going to stay in the past or will he she chose to return to their present day I will not spoil Madeline s decision, but I will tell you that the book had me in total suspense until the very last paragraph.The majority of Madeline s time travelling adventure revolves around Samuel, a Native American with a soft heart and healer s hands As Madeline discoversabout her inexplicable trip to the past, she begins to feel a pull towards Samuel that even three hundred years of history cannot deter.But Madeline s time traveling abilities open up so many questions regarding her past and her family And Madeline isn t the only one with these fantastical abilities the longer she stays in Colonial America, theshe realizes that her abilities are so much greater than herself.I thoroughly enjoyed The Messenger There were several times when I could not put this book down The one thing that bothers me is that a second book hasn t been published or announced yet I need to know what happens next BUT, this book has been optioned for a movie or TV series, which would be really interesting to see

    Madeline travels back in time to King Philip s War in Rhode Island in 1675 There she learns she is a Messenger, someone who is able to carry messages through time and trains to be a warrior She also learns she has a soul mate named Jamie, oops, I means Samuel Yes, sounds like a YA Outlander, doesn t it I preferred it to Outlander The time period is not one that I have read about before Samuel is half Native American which adds to the suspense The author does not rush into the romance in t Madeline travels back in time to King Philip s War in Rhode Island in 1675 There she learns she is a Messenger, someone who is able to carry messages through time and trains to be a warrior She also learns she has a soul mate named Jamie, oops, I means Samuel Yes, sounds like a YA Outlander, doesn t it I preferred it to Outlander The time period is not one that I have read about before Samuel is half Native American which adds to the suspense The author does not rush into the romance in this book She takes it slow I thought this was not only refreshing but alsorealistic When Madeline first arrives in 1675, she befriends a girl named Elizabeth who thinks that Madeline is her cousin In a lot of time travel stories, the traveler keeps the fact that he is from another time and place a secret In this story, Madeline is open with Elizabeth about who she really is This makes it fun to watch a friendship grow between two different people Through humor and kindness they make it work.Highly recommended for Young Adults who love time travel and romance I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in return for an honest review
