My life goes completely sideways the moment I meet the mysterious Braxton. Sure, he’s ridiculously hot, but he’s also the reason I’ve been kicked out of school and recruited into Gray Wolf Academy—a remote island school completely off the grid. I never should have trusted a face so perfect.
But the reality of why Gray Wolf wanted me is what truly blows my mind. It’s a school for time travelers. Tripping, they call it. This place is filled with elaborate costumes and rare artifacts, where every move is strategic and the halls are filled with shadows and secrets.
Here, what you see isn’t always what it appears. Including Braxton. Because even though there’s an energy connecting us together, the more secrets he keeps from me, the more it feels like something is pulling us apart. Something that has to do with this place—and its darker purpose. It’s all part of a guarded, elaborate puzzle of history and time...and I might be one of the missing pieces.
Now I have all the time in the world. And yet I can’t shake the feeling that time is the one thing I’m about to run out of...fast.
Oh, this was fun! I am a fan of stories involving time travel so I was really eager to give this book a try. I was hooked by this one right away and liked Natasha a lot. I was never quite sure who could be trusted and I just couldn’t seem to put the book down because I had to know what would happen next. This turned out to be an incredibly entertaining and exciting story.
Natasha is a high school student just doing the minimum amount necessary to get through her day. Ever since her father left, her mother doesn’t seem to care and has become an empty shell. When Natasha meets a new girl at school, she is drawn to her and eager to go along with any of her ideas. When she gets in trouble, she is whisked away to Gray Wolf Academy which is a totally different learning environment. She grows close to Braxton and a couple of other students as she works to try to fit in. Things ramp up as she learns about the real mission of the academy.
This book was so hard to put down. There were quite a few surprises worked into the story and I loved the fact anything could really happen at any time. I loved the way that time travel was worked into the story and I enjoyed the fact that there were a few puzzles to solve along the way. This book really had a little bit of all of the things that I hoped for and I am looking forward to reading more of this series just as soon as I can get my hands on it.
