After their beautiful yet brief bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force are forced to separate.

But instead of a bitter reunion, he is faced with a choice for which there is no good option.

Mimi, with a most unexpected travel companion in Oliver Hazard-Perry, jets off to Egypt, too, to search for Kingsley Martin, her long lost love.

My Review:
Lost in Time definitely had some really good moments..but some moments had me scratching my head because I was very lost! I will admit that I didn't really remember what happened in the previous book (Misguided Angel) so that probably accounts for why I was confused at parts!
Anyways, one of my favorite parts about this book (and the series!!) is Jack and Schuyler's relationship. It is interesting to read how the pair will do anything to be together and I really like reading about them! I also liked seeing Jack and Schuyler search for the gates of promise..added this aspect to the series makes the books more exciting and keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat!
The one thing that bothered me about this book though was the end! Especially because it was (somewhat) of a cliffhanger! I though that Melissa de la Cruz was going to take the book one way but she went a completely different way then I expected. 

Overall, this was a fine book in this series. It wasn't as jamb packed and as amazing other books in this series, but it was still a good read and I am looking forward to reading the last book in the series in January!

My Rating: 
Four out of Five Stars


  1. Almost exactly what I thought of this book!! Great review :)

  2. I bought this book in September... and have yet to read it. I loved The Van Alen Legacy, but I was not a huge fan of Misguided Angel. The series started to feel too long and drawn out throughout Misguided Angel. I wasn't and still am not sure if I truly want to read Lost in Time, even though I bought it. BUT, it appears that you loved it, and I trust your judgment, so I will still read it, maybe after I plow through the gajillion of books that I picked out from the library this week. LOL.
    Thanks for the review!
