My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Time Traveler’s Magic by Anna Applegate is the first book in the Magic Bound Saga. Ember Brighton has been pushed into another time and must figure out what to do and why this has happened. This is a great time traveling fantasy with supernatural/paranormal elements. This is a fun read that kept me wanting more. I enjoyed the characters and the story. I also enjoyed there were plenty of mysteries that Ember was trying to unravel. I look forward to the next book in this series and reading more from Anna Applegate in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Time Traveler’s Magic by Anna Applegate was truly a captivating read. I would give this book a four out of five stars. I loved how the book started, it really did a great job of building the world and Ember’s character. A lot of mysteries start to pile on and as the reader you find yourself asking the same questions that Ember does. I really struggled to put this book down because of my curiosity surrounding Ember, Rane, and the whole situation we find ourselves in. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

I give The Time Traveler’s Magic (Book 1 of the Magic Bound Saga) by Anna Applegate, 5 stars.

Ember is struggling with life. Her job as a waitress does not pay much, but she needs to do what she can ever since her mom has been in the hospital. Then she gets a call she dreads, her mom is now in a coma. Her life feels like it’s falling apart. Oh and the best part? She hears voices, mainly coming from the stock room of her work on a ship that has been converted into a restaurant. Not to mention that it feels like some one is always watching her.

After an incident at work, she ends up thrust into the care of a sexy man dressed as a pirate on a ship in the middle of the ocean. What is going on? Is she imagining it? To find out what is happening and maybe fix her mother, she will have to accept what is her new reality and trust people she has just met. Can she do it?

Ok, first off, I will admit something — I never really understood the popularity of the time travel genre. I wasn’t interested in it before, but this book caught my attention and I thought I would give it a try. Oh my god!!! I was blown away!!! The author wastes no time throwing us into it. Many books take a while for the character buildup, not getting into the action until a quarter to halfway through. Nope, not this author. It doesn’t take long at all before you are on the ride of adventure and action. But this doesn’t mean the characters are lacking either. You really understand where Ember is coming from and I feel for her so much. I felt like I was in her shoes, which is the best compliment I can give. The story is different from those I’ve read before. I especially liked how we have not only time travel, but supernatural creatures too. That adds another layer of depth to this wonderful book. I could not put the book down and cannot wait to read the next book!

If you are a fan of time travel and/or paranormal books, I highly recommend this book.

The Time Travellers Magic by Anna Applegate is the first book in the Magic Bound Saga. This is an exciting story that has everything you could want.
Anna Applegate is an author that I have become pretty familiar with over the past year and I have come to expect that her books are enjoyable. This one is no exception and probably has to be my favourite to date. I loved these two characters. Rane is definitely fantasy worthy!!
The overall story was was paced an exciting. I found myself flying through this book simply because I couldn’t stop reading. If this is only book one then I really can’t wait to see what else is to come.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Time Traveler’s Magic is the first book in the Magic Bound Saga.

This story is full of action that keeps you hooked. The characters are intriguing. I mean, a vampire pirate, what’s not to love!!! Writing time travel can be iffy, but this book pulls it off pretty well. Ember has a bit of personal growth to do, but then again, don’t we all. I think maybe the character flaws she has are what make her more relatable. Overall, I found the plot interesting. It made for an entertaining read. There are some things that in the book that brought up questions, but they will probably be answered in subsequent books.

The Time Traveler’s Magic is Book One is the Magic Bound series by Anna Applegate. I really enjoyed Ms. Applegate’s Ariya Adams series, so there was no question of if I was going to read this book. I just snapped up a copy, and dove in to see what the story was all about.
This really is a wonderful paranormal romance- with time travel, action, adventure, vampires, shifters, pirates, magic, drama, mystery, and more. There are so many fantastic, original, and surprising details in this story- I was hooked right from the first chapter. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series to find out what happens- especially after the way this book ended.
The characters are well developed- with their own personalities, quirks and flaws. Ember really frustrated me, and I wanted to shake her a lot of the time. I loved Rane- he’s definitely my favourite in this book. I can’t wait to find out where this series will lead in the future instalments, and watch these characters grow and develop as the stories unfold.
A great start to a new series!

Thank you, Ms. Applegate!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one wild ride! It is full of action that doesn’t seem to stop. I was worried about this book because i do not read time travel stories. I gave this one a go because I have read other works by this author that have been grand. I was pleasantly surprised over that element in this book. There is also an undercurrent of attraction that helps to keep me turning pages. Will they or won’t they? *Turns page* OMG they are so close *Turns Page* That Look…That touch *Turns page* …ARRG!

That sweet romantic attraction isn’t the main story. It’s about finding out about your powers and learning to use them. Saving people and also being glad you are not paranoid hearing all those voices in your head. As well as learning there are Paranormals in this world…Oh and easily hating the MacGregor! This is chock full of many many things.

I love love love this book and read it late into the night. To say it consumed me is an understatement. Just ask my neglected family and my groggy AM brain :). This author is wickedly good at writing this suspenseful tale. The story flows so perfectly and I wasn’t bothered by the time jumps at all. The ending does have a kind of pause button and she is using that as a lead in to the next book. I am not pleased with this as this author writes well enough she doesn’t need to use those ploys to get people to read the next book. The characters were wonderful to get to know. I mean who wouldn’t want a privateer or a vampire to hang out with?
Next please!

The Time Traveler's Magic (The Magic Bound Saga #1)The Time Traveler’s Magic by Anna Applegate

The Time Traveler’s Magic is book one in the Magic Bound series by Anna Applegate, and this paranormal romance is an AMAZING READ! Ember always feels like someone is watching her and watching her life crumble. Her parents were involved in a horrible accident and she lost her father. Learning that her mother has slipped away further, she rushes to her side. There she is confronted by someone wanting to hurt her but is luckily saved, and it then happens at work but is able to lock herself in a closet. Then comes Rane to rescue, right away Ember questions his motives, but fearing her life, she knows she needs his help. The main question is, will Ember face her destiny and will those wanting to hut her, succeed. You must read to answer that!
This book was awesome to read and I was able to read it in one sitting. This book had it all from romance, time traveling, vampires, and villains! It’s a prefect mix in this five star read!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hmmmm…

This is another of those books that the blurb sounds amazing, the cover is gorgeous, the premise of the book is one that I’ve read and enjoyed before, but there was something about it that just didn’t enthrall me like I anticipated.

It wasn’t one major thing, it was a bunch if little things that all blended together.

Having said all that…

The writing is visually appealing while being conservative in details. The characters and storyline held my interest enough that I will be reading the next book in the series. The flow of the story was linear and there was a sexy pirate.

Overall a 4 star read.
