The Emerald Hour Reviews
I truly feel like a world class jet-setter after having read all three books in The Timeslip Series. By now I was used to Andersen's play between past and present, and I love her "time travel" take on reincarnation, I just had to wonder how she was going to mix things up in this book to make it different from the others.Of course, there were new exciting and endearing characters, adventures set in gorgeous, exotic destinations, and the deeply emotional love and romance that make this series so fun to read, but I have to say that I was delighted and pleasantly surprised when the connection between past and present characters was made. The thought never even crossed my mind, and it put a fresh spin on an already unique approach adopted by Andersen. The writing was smooth and well-paced, however, I did find a bit of the in depth scientific discussions a little boring to read. Perhaps it was because I didn't fully understand some of the jargon, and I will never really know what it feels like to have an intense passion for botany. They almost felt like fillers, and could have been condensed. I really liked that the characters, having learnt something from their past lives, were able to better understand each other. By the time they figured out who they'd once been, and faced their past emotions, they were able to accept each other more.Andersen is such a gifted storyteller and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I'm already imagining the adventure she's going to send me on and I'm all packed and ready for my travels.
Jordan Charles heads off with her team to search for an elusive rubber tree plant in the Kew Gardens in London, England. As they search for the resistant strain of this plant they are closely monitored by the West brothers who have sponsored the universities research. Theodore West realizes that every time his plans take him away from the american team and their research that his career takes a nose dive and so he begins to work closely with the team even as he finds himself drawn to Jordan Charles. He begins to realize that the past is playing with them as events begin to replay themselves. If he doesn't figure out how to correct the past then the tree will forever be lost.The Emerald Hour deals with the Rubber Trees. It was actually really interesting to learn about. Rubber is everywhere and I knew it came from trees but I don't think I ever thought much more about it. Harvesting rubber is actually quite difficult and the trees are really susceptible to bugs and rot. The characters were really great and I loved some of the things that the author had done with this story. Up to this point the books really could have been read alone but during this book they started to tie in with the other books because of a society. I am not going to ruin it but I would definitely suggest this series to everyone!
