This was a very interesting story! The legend in the beginning was a beautiful way to set up the actual storyline. The details and descriptions in the setting were truly captivating, painting a picture in my mind as I read through. It was almost as if I was watching a movie, reading through each chapter and getting to know the characters. Truly seeing how Kit was thinking, whether it was about Tam, his fate, or what was happening in his hometown, was really eye opening. The alternating points of view was also fun to see, the way each character is different but complements the others they are around or discuss. I also love the premise of time travel, and the way the author uses it in this book is simply stunning and absolutely worth the read!

I dug right into this book with wide eyes as I leapt into a new world in this book. I often read books that take you places with joy to be able to step outside of my reality into fantasy. This story is full of time travel, lots of interesting detail, and a love story. I love memoirs and biographies but there’s nothing like a love story to lift me high off the ground. I was excited to watch her try and navigate time travel to the 16th century trying to live with her love for this man! You don’t want to miss this one! I’m looking forward to finding time to revert back to book one and understand the layers even further. Enjoy!

This is a pretty interesting read and even though it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I do want to go back and read the previous books for more context on this story though. I do get a little confused when there is a dual timeline as I struggle to keep the different parts separate, yet together.

It’s the year 1593 and Christopher Marlowe is in trouble. The playwright is being taken to the White Tower but he’s desperate to get a message to his love, Tam, in the present day. Tam’s a homicide detective who can possibly help him out, but then again, maybe it would be best if he handled this on his own.

This book is about time travel, detectives, love, fae, shapeshifters, and more! It’s full of mystery, intrigue, high stake choices, and more!

I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t realize until after I finished that this is the fourth book in the series. It did not make a difference though. I didn’t feel lost or like I was missing something. This is a stand alone book in the series. However, after reading, I will definitely be checking out the rest of the books in the series. It was interesting throughout the entire book.

I really enjoyed Nightfall in Deptford. It is a unique time travel historical paranormal/fantasy tale where the story is in two different time periods and years but goes back and forth between 1593 London and current Philadelphia. A playwright, a Homicide Detective, criminals, fae and shifters are only some of what you can expect in this tale.

I was so captivated with this story that I didn’t realise that it is actually the fourth book in the series. I suggest going back and reading them in order. I didn’t really feel I missed out as I was reading it but will go back and start at the beginning.

L.E. is a new author to me and I was engrossed with her narrative and world building. The story is made all that more interesting as one of the characters is a real historical figure.

Tam is a fixer but to do what she does best she must travel through time. Now she must choose love or keeping the time line of the future intact. What would you do when it comes to love?

I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

This series is amazing! Very fast read and I love the story line, even though I read it out of order!

Everything you need in a story; conspiracy, judgement, love, action, time travel, and so much more!

You’ll meet Tam who isn’t your ordinary every day detective in Philly, instead she’s got a secret second life that she’s been dealing with since the age of 15. You’ll also meet all of her friends that help her through everything that she has to face. In this book, Tam gets sent back to 1593 and has to deal with life during that age. The smells, the work, the norm back then is way different than what she’s used to.

Tam Paradiso is a woman on a mission and she will stop at nothing until she sees it through to the end, there is only one complication, it involves time travel and that is something she is not familiar with, hunting monsters and aiding supernatural beings, yes, but time travel no, but hey, there is a first time for everything. Meanwhile, Christopher Marlowe is being delivered to the White Tower in London in 1593 after being summoned there from a visit to a friend, he has no idea who is behind taking him there, but he understands what he is being charged with, all he knows is that he must get word to Tam so that she doesn’t try anything reckless to help free him.

You may ask what has spurred this new challenge in Tam’s life and that is the change in the details of the death of her lover Christopher Marlowe, a fellow monster hunter and the love of her life, so with the help of friends and family, she prepares for a journey like no other to correct the timeline and stop the drastic changes it is causing. As she ties up the loose ends in her other occupation as a Detective in modern day New York to take some vacation days, she has to bring allies into the fold, only some of which know the whole story, but she cannot risk anything more than she already is by telling them where she is really going. However, as usual things do not go smoothly and Tam’s sister Isabelle plays a key role in the journey, as does her ex-lover Theo North who has to accompany her in order for the two of them not to stick out any more than they know they will.

When they arrive in Marlowe’s time, the try and work out who is behind the accusations and so start to dig into the backgrounds of any clues Marlowe has left them, but the further they dig, he more tangled a web they find and time is running out for them all, especially when they have to battle a key witness of Marlowe’s death who also happens to be a shifter, but will they solve their puzzle and get Marlowe out in time, just so he can die the death he was supposed to? This is an adventure which is full of political intrigue, time travel and the supernatural, in this race against time which will have you on the edge of your seat throughout.

Nightfall in Deptford is the fourth book in the Crescent Moon Chronicles series. I grabbed this because of the blurb involving Christopher Marlowe and time traveling. Little did I know that this was part of a series. This read well, considering I had not read other books in the series, and it has left me wanting to know more of the story but past and upcoming. Tam is a Philadelphia homicide detective that finds her way to England and Christopher Marlowe. Will she be able to change history, or will he meet his ending?
I enjoyed the writing and that not only is the story historical time-travel but there is a paranormal side to the story as well. The characters were interesting, and I enjoyed looking differently at the past. I am greatly intrigued by what the rest of the series holds in storytelling. I look forward to grabbing more books from this author soon.

History, as we know it, is kept in balance by time travelers. Time travelers that battle beings from another realm. Being part of a series, I know I’m missing part of the story, but I was able to easily pick up on what’s going on. I’m even thinking I have to go back and read the previous books. I highly recommend this book.

Nightfall in Deptford (Crescent Moon Chronicles Book 4) by L.E. Towne – Review by Maryn Belling

“Not all monsters (are) bad, some (are) handsome creatures that listen to your troubles and serve beer”

Welcome to a timeline where things are warped. American readers will slide a side-eye at the revised canonical realities between the text and their history classes – careful where you read this; the trolls might be watching.

Otherwise, bouncing back and forth between London 1593 and contemporary Philadelphia is as seamless as going to the Renaissance Festival. Mr. Marlowe’s attachments to modernity create a decreasing stickiness to his own time – which is good since he’s got that pesky May 30th 1593 thing looming before him.

The underpinnings of the story and its origin legend separate this text from its “competitors” in both the time travel and supernatural (fae) genres. It’s a fun read with endearingly relatable characters. Definitely an author I’ll add to my “yup” stack.

Historical Geek Note: this is NOT a distraction from the book; but in addition to the intentional canonical departures, there’s a significant historical issue with a time-travel book with British settings prior to 1751 and modern-day US settings. Poetic license being as it is, however, we can probably assume that our 16th century literary protagonist and our modern day damsel found a work-around for the wonkiness of the Julian calendar prior to 1752
