The Traveler: Chimera RebellionThe Traveler: Chimera Rebellion by Shannon Nemechek
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Traveler: Chimera Rebellion is the first book in The Book of Eleanor Series by Shannon Nemechek. It is a time travel fantasy- with magic, mystery, witches, history, war, love, suspense, drama, action and adventure. This has the feel of “Outlander”, but with a flavour all its own. I really enjoyed this first book and am looking forward to continuing with the rest of the series.
Katie Butler is a Major in the US Army- and she has no idea that her love of old books will catapult her on an adventure through time- and to a date with destiny. While on leave, Katie hears of a rare book which piques her curiosity and she is determined to track it down. This leads to her to being swept back in time- and smack bang into the middle of a war- crossing paths with Captain Colm O’Donnell. This twist of fate will be revealing in more ways than one. Will she find a way back ‘home’, or will fate intervene?
This is a fast-paced story that’s full of intrigue, excitement, surprises, and some suspense- which kept me hooked, and flipping pages to discover what would happen next.
The characters are fantastic, they are really well crafted into fully realised individuals who have a great connection and chemistry.
I loved the time travel aspect to the story, it was quite cleverly done. The story is detailed and very descriptive- so wonderfully woven with rich and vivid historical elements.
This book is such a great way to start the series- I can’t wait to read the next book!

Thank you, Ms. Nemechek!!
