Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.
Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

    The author April White does a remarkable job of blending a mystery and love store together. I found this book a great read for either a teenage or adult reader
  • Perfect

    By Nick-Kless
    So imaginative and new. Just a wonderful and fresh story that is powerfully written and always keeping you guessing. Every book in this series is worth 5 times the price!
  • Great YA (even for the not-so-young adult)

    By The unofficial cruise director
    Great read. Adventure. Time-travel. Romance. And a hot vampire. What more could you want?
  • Great read with historical facts

    By Jason Turkey
    I really enjoyed this fantasy story set with historical facts. I think it's a blend of Outlander and Divergent. Really terrific!

  • Traveler Fan

    I have always loved time traveling books and this one was truly a delight to read. The book grabbed you from the beginning and took you on a roller coaster read. Some books can go on and on and you lose interest, but not this book. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to read all day just to find out what happened next. Love the story and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

  • Can't put it down

    By Nina Simone kln
    This is a book once you start reading you can't stop. Interesting plot and the characters are developed nicely. I am hooked and will definitely read the rest books in the series. Would love to see more work from April White in the future. And would be very excited if her Immortal series to be made into movies.
