Review: ⅘

I enjoyed reading this series very much. What is unique about this series is the fact that each book in the trilogy is weaved together so tightly that you absolutely have to read every book in order to understand what is going on. The overall concept is very clever. Being able to see distinctly different time periods made the books entertaining. The reason I rated ⅘ instead of 5/5 is because I felt the second and third books were especially drawn out. It took me nearly a month to finish the series because I was not as deeply involved as I was with other series in the past. Despite this, I still had a very fun “time” diving into the world of time travel. If you’re looking for a series with mystery, secret societies, romance, and London, this is the series for you!
