Time Walker (Spirit Bound #1)Time Walker by Meghan Ciana Doidge

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I picked up this book through BookRooster.com. I received it after Spirit Bound by the same author, Meghan Ciana Doidge. Whereas Spirit Bound stars a strong adult female lead, Theo, Time Walker stars her young adopted child, Beth. As Beth grows up before our eyes, I learned to like her. But mostly I got tired of how she seemed–well, immature. Mooning over her brother while another adoptive brother mooned over her, whining about her lack of talents or gifts of magic.

Okay, I am not the audience this book is aimed for. But I think this may have been for the middle-grader, not even for a young adult, much less for a 65-year-old who wishes she had learned to time walk. There were parts of this book I liked, but I wish it would have had more of the Spirit Bound, Theo, in the story. She does show up after dealing with the aftermath of an Earthquake. But I missed her spirit.

Don’t take my word for it. I have been looking at the other reviews and most are of higher praise than mine. I might just be in a mood or something. I will try to read more by this author. I think I would like to meet Beth as an adult and see what she’s has made of herself and her abilities.

Spirit Binder (The Cascadian Chronicles #1)Spirit Binder by Meghan Ciana Doidge

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love BookRooster.com! I have discovered so many gems this way. Books I might not have been able to afford or wouldn’t have known about otherwise. I have nearly one hundred books on my queue starting way back in 2013. This one came to me about that long ago. Yes, I am slow to read all they send me, but they don’t seem to mind my ADD of books.

For a while, I only read my BookRoosters on my Moon Reader Pro. Now I find I can send by email to my Kindles. I love MRP because I can read and listen on the same device. But with the emailed one, I can make sure to get the books sent to my tablet or any of my Kindles. Sure, I have to listen on the older Kindle while reading it on my tablet or Fire, but it reminds me to read it more quickly as I can see readily all the books I have waiting my eyes on the carousel.

Now for the book itself. Spirit Binder feels to me an Epic Fantasy as there is magic, and swords involved. Not my favorite genre of fantasy, but, with the main character a strong female, I felt more inclined to get involved in the story. I know there are those who LOVE Tolkien. Not me. Too many warring men. Just not my kind of story. Theo is gusty and smart. Though the book starts with her at a disadvantage, having forgotten the last ten years of her life, she claims back her own bit by bit with all the love and power she can–and that’s quite a lot!

Luckily, BookRooster sent me book two so I can follow up in the near future. How cool is that?
