There exists a secret society where one’s ability to travel through time is “gifted” to members only by blood. Those who try to enter the society quickly come to realize that time is a force not to be reckoned with. Alexandra Monir’s short story exclusive eBook, SECRETS OF THE TIME SOCIETY, sheds light upon the world created in her novel, TIMELESS, and forecasts the fate that lies ahead for its protagonist, Michele Windsor. Now that Michele is gifted, there are some who will do anything to take that power away….
I loved it, to say the least. The 25 page short story is jam packed with information. Many of my questions were answered.
We are in Rebecca Windsor’s head. In Rebecca’s story, she is a vain and devious woman. She is introduced to the founder of the Time Society and learns the origin of her gift and how to better use it. She loses and then regains a key through nefarious means. Rebecca is willing to do anything to keep her gift, no matter the cost. Her character is fully developed in the prequel. We get to know her well and it’s not pretty. I expect she will pop up again to cause as much damage as possible.
We don’t learn much about Michelle other than the reason Rebecca hates her so. I hope Michelle is up to the challenge of dealing with Rebecca.
Anyone who loved Timeless will love this novella as well. I was mad when it ended; I want more! It whet my appetite for the sequel; I’m off to read Timekeeper.
