This was an Amazon freebie, but nevertheless, I was looking forward to The Messenger. Time travel novels are really intriguing and two of my favourite time travel series are Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren and the Precious Stone Trilogy.
To start off. DNF 50%…
Sorry, it just didn’t catch my interest. I found myself in a reading slump because I couldn’t get through this one.
I liked the concept of “Messengers,” but in the 50% that I read, this hardly came through. There also was no strong end goal – I felt like I was in a little boat being aimlessly tossed about by the waves. Much of the time, Madeline simply helped Elizabeth, did Yoga in the barn, and hung out with Samuel. Despite this, the opening was strong. There was conflict and intrigue and Madeline was a hurting character, so there was a lot of room for growth.
Maybe this is a novel that you will enjoy, but it wasn’t for me.
Anyways, I think it will check out at this point. I hope you guys had an amazing weekend!
See ya later!
