Hope believed her mother died during an earthquake months earlier overseas. Then she receives an invite to stay with her aunt in Scotland and everything changes. Hope’s family is part of a secret time traveler society and they need her help. She has seventy-two hours to go back in time and rescue her mother or be lost forever.
I love when a book doesn’t fit into a single genre. It’s a nice change and can provide quite an interesting plot. I’m a fan of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and Into the Dim is a great read-a-like for teens. This book has time travel, humor, romance, and history. It is a non-stop plot action from beginning to end.
I found the love interest aspect of the novel to be quite predictable, but then Taylor threw in some curveballs and I’m intrigued to see how it plays out in future novels. Speaking of characters, I really liked them. Each character had a unique personality and secrets that made them well-rounded. I feel that we get a good introduction to the characters, but the plot moved fast, which didn’t give us enough time with them. I hope to learn more about their past as the series continues.
Into the Dim appeals to many readers and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this series become the next big thing.
I received a complimentary electronic ARC of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
