Y’all the final Out of Time book was. riveting. Yep, I said it. Not that you’re surprised, I’m sure.

If you read my last review you already knew I was amped and excited about this book. There were so many questions left and thankfully Ms. Brandes answered them all.

So where to start, how about with the romance between Parvin and Solomon. *sigh* I love romance, it makes the world go round. Seriously, I loved how these two navigated the relationship waters and how Parvin was determined to be a better woman for Solomon’s sake. What could be better? There were some heart-stopping moments and I may have shed a tear or two, but I made it through the reading, lol.

Skelly Chase…what can I say about everyone’s favorite bad guy? Read the book!! Mwahahaha. Seriously though I don’t want to give everything away so you’ll need to read the book to find out if he’s as evil as you think he is.

Willow. Ah, poor sweet thing. She intertwined herself in my heart and book 2 about broke my heart, but book three made me cry. I love Willow and she reminded me of why I hate free will. Why do people chose to do bad. *sigh* There’s a lesson in there worth reading, friends.

Anywhoo, if you’ve never read the Out of Time series, what are you waiting for? They need to be read. The way God is woven into the stories is so integral to the message, the read, the whole package. I’ve learned a lot about my faith as well as who He is just by reading these books. If that’s not reason enough to open one, I don’t know what is.

*I give this 5 out of 5. This series went out with a bang!
**I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. The review is my honest opinion.
