Timeless (Transcend Time Saga #3)


In Remembrance, Lizzie and Drew changed the course of fate so they could be together.

In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path.

Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make things worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began. ~~ synopsis from Goodreads

My thoughts about Timeless ~~

(Although it is not intentional, there could be spoilers here if you have not read books one and two.)

Michelle has done it again! Timeless is a great story that ends the Transcend Time Saga. All three books are wonderful reads! My thoughts about books one and two are here and here.

I love the time travel element to the story. To be able to go back in time to live your other life, how amazing would that be?
'There are days when I wonder if it's actually possible, that I have memories of a life in a time so different from my own. Things like that are fun to read about in stories, but knowing it happened to me is beyond belief.'
Timeless has it all - best friends who need to rediscover that friendship all over again; romance in the present, and the past; jealousy; secrets; murder.
'Did anyone else have these moments of amazement over the existence of humanity, when they are in awe of how they are here, and alive, even if it's only for a short while?'
There are so many beautifully written passages in this book, I just wanted to savor each page. Michelle has such a talent for writing and I am excited to see what she writes next!

The only thing about book three that disappointed me, just a little bit, was the cover. It is so different from books one and two. It's a great cover, don't get me wrong, but it would have been awesome to have another close up of one of those beautiful masks, like the first two books, so they would all match. But in the end, it's all about what's inside the covers that counts, right? And book three definitely lives up to the other two books, so it's all good!
Great job, Michelle!!

About the author

Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and fellow classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed!

Along with the Transcend Time Saga, Michelle Madow has written two other young adult novels, both which will be developed into series.

Michelle Madow graduated from the Park School of Baltimore in 2005, where she always took two English classes each semester. She graduated from Rollins College in 2010, cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English. At Rollins she was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and a member of the International English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta.

She received the Charles Hyde Pratt Award for Excellence in Creative Writing in 2010.

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
