I write, read and review, I blog frequently and love anything to do with books and writing, including editing. I am a Book Nerd and I wear that badge with pride. http://coffee2words.wordpress.com
I'm not sure what I was expecting from this book, but it wasn't what I got.
Keigan (our protagonist) finds himself traveling through time and into the past, to finish the job of another man. Things get complicated (as they usually do in good books!) and the reader gets to experience Keigan's journey into 1880.
The scenery and world building was well done. The feel of the station, the trains and the time, we're all rich and brightly coloured. Probably my favourite part of the story. The opening scene was especially beautiful.
Keigan is not your typical protagonist too, he's an asthmatic, librarian and appealed to my inner nerd and geek-meter.
I also liked Mr Best. Marigold was a bit flat for me, I wanted a little more out of her, she seemed to just go with the flow too much.
Overall, it felt a little lacking in heart, so, despite being a good story, it just fails to reach 4 star territory.
