Connie: OUT OF TIME by Lynn Abbey is 311 pages long in paperback form. This is #1 in Time Series.
For university librarian Emma Merrigan, the world has provided a comfortable routine. her job. Her quiet apartment. Her Lie. Nothing much changes, and that 's fine by her.
But that was before Emma took in a terrified young girl hiding in the library.
And the nightmares of her childhood returned.
And The untapped powers passed down by her long-dead mother were awakened.
Now, her life is about to become anything but routine...
This was definitely a book out of my comfort zone. I saw the word time travel and thought it might be like the Gabaldon books. This was nothing like that at all. It was interesting but I think I was overwhelmed by things I didn't understand and didn't feel they were sufficiently explained. That could be because I just started to read fantasy and I am not quite certain about some of the things that go with a fantasy novel.
Emma was a very interesting character and the ending of the book made you want to find out what might happen in the next book. I am not sure if that is enough for me to try and find the next one in the series though. I just didn't realize that curses could take a form. But I guess in a fantasy world anything can happen.
I am giving this 3.5 out of 5 stars. I don't believe it was the authors fault though, I just wasn't familiar with the subject matter. I thought the story on its own was well written.
