But Madeline doesn't fit in this world. She’s different from the other colonists. Rumors of witchcraft and spying arise. Deadly Hunters, dark-souled predators as well as skilled time travelers, crave Madeline's powers. Can Madeline find the way back to her future? And will that future include her one true love, Samuel?



I would like to thank AToMR Blog Tours for allowing me to read this book and be a part of the tour. I have to say that I love time traveling books. This book held me captive because not only did it have time traveling in it but it had Native American history in it. I love the combination of both.

Madeline and her mother are in a car accident and Madelines mother has disappeared. When everything settles Madeline is given a book that her mother has passed down to her. In the book she reads about family secrets and things she never knew. She is once again put in harms way and is thrown back into another time where she must save the person she loves. She finds out she is a Messenger and she can travel through time to deliver messages.

Madeline must figure out how t time travel with Samuel before it is to late. She must learn things fast and she will have to figure out who to trust in the end. This will be one trip Madeline will have to do alone because she has no one there to help her out. What will Madeline do? Will she be able to get Samuel home safe? Will she come back to her present time? Come along for a magical story with lots of twists and turns. This is one series to watch out for!
