    I was totally in for another story in this world and I was thrilled to see how Marcus and Phoebe’s story was going to play out. I loved the format the most: we got a chapter of Marcus’s past, a chapter of Phoebe as she learns to be a vampire, and a chapter of Diana and the current household. It was such an interesting way to tell the story and get the details of how everyone was fairing. Plus, I love love loved seeing how Marcus came to be Ma...

    Received an Advanced ReaderIn Summer 2011 I found myself in love with the World of All Souls. So getting the chance to read Time Convert early made my summer. If you are familiar with the previous trilogy you have already been introduced to Marcus.A vampire that was sired by Matthew during the Revoluntary War. Time Convert is being marketed as his story but as I read it did not feel like it truly was not like how the original trilogy was Diana's....

    The ACR rating is 3.5 Stars. It was enjoyable, but some things I had issues with. however, I know that the final version of the book is different from the ARC. 25% of the book was changed and the ending as well. excited to see if the changes fix the issues I had with the original draft.

    I have an ARC. My review to come in September. Deborah doesn't disappoint at all with the new All Souls Universe.What does it take to become a Vampire?
  • Kylie
    This was a wonderful read. I'm definitely moving A Discovery of Witches up on my to-read now, if only to spend more time in this world.

    I was so excited to delve into the lives, past and present, of the de Clermont family. Exploring Marcus’ and Phoebe’s journeys was as informative as I had hoped. Also appreciated that if you hadn’t read the All Souls Trilogy you do not feel lost. This is truly Marcus’ and Phoebe’s story. Learning Marcus’ story you understand why he is who he is. I so hope there will be more.

    Time’s Convert is outside of the All Souls Trilogy, but Diana and Matthew are still a large part of the story. Marcus and Phoebe are to become mated,but first Phoebe wants to become a vampire and join the De Claremont family. There is a 90 day gestation period where she is like an infant,be it a very dangerous infant. During this time Marcus is not permitted to see Phoebe, because the emotions would overwhelm her. She needs the time to become c...

    I think fans of the original All Souls trilogy should go into this blind and just enjoy the ride. I loved returning to this world and don't think you'll be disappointed!So while the thoughts below aren't all that spoiler-y, I'm putting them in spoiler tags because you really should come back and read them after you've read the book for yourself.(view spoiler)[Like I said, I loved returning to the All Souls world and seeing Diana and Matthew again...

    I was excited to find an arc of this book had been delivered to my bookstore. I grabbed it immediately. The best part of the book is still Diane and Matthew and their children. I enjoyed learning about some of Marcus' history. I am not very fond of Phoebe at all. This story had 2 elements I am not very fond of in books. I don't like flashbacks unless they are done well. In Time's Convert I felt they were to drawn out. There were also loose ends i...
  • Ashley
    A little disappointing, if I'm honest. I was happy to read it, and it was nice to revisit familiar characters, and to get a deeper look into Marcus's past, but the whole 400 pages felt meandering and slightly pointless. There was no danger, no urgency, no mystery--none of the hallmarks of the original trilogy that made it so absorbing to read. It felt like a history lesson of the American and French Revolutions that just so happened to include va...

    I’m honestly so disappointed. The All Souls trilogy is one of my favourite series, it’s the series that got me into reading. When I heard about a spin off series following Matthews son, Marcus I was really excited but this just fell flat. Times Convert is told in 3 parts; marcus’ story from the 1700’s, marcus’ current story and phoebes current story. The only issue is that there didn’t seem to be a storyline, I felt like I was reading...

    The All Souls trilogy often poses the question of how a hidden past inevitably shapes the future, no matter how deeply buried. Time's Convert is no exception to this rule, as we travel through Marcus' past to understand how he became a vampire and fell in love with Phoebe, now undergoing the transformation on her own. American History buffs will love Harkness' version of the Revolutionary war, and romance fans will be delighted to spend more time...
  • Annarella
    One note: I think that in order to really appreciate this book you must have read the trilogy.I love the All Soul trilogy and danced happily when I got this ARC.It took a chapter and I was hooked and happy to be back in the All Soul world.I loved to meet Diana and Matthew children and to meet old and new characters.The historical part was good but I preferred the parts featuring Diana/Matthew/etc and Phoebe.Highly recommended!
  • Emily
    All Soul's Series. Marcus Whitmore. American/French Revolutions. No spoilers here! This is the book I was most excited to get at Book Expo. It tells the back story of Marcus Whitmore (son of Matthew de Clermont) juxtaposed with the storyline of his intended mate, Phoebe Taylor's conversion from human to vampire.
  • Kristen O'Daly
    Really 3.5 - I wanted to love this and I did enjoy it. I think there was a gap of too much time between the Discovery of Witches trilogy and my memory of the characters before I dove into this one. And just selfishly wanted more Matthew and Diana.
  • Sandi Madore
    I LOVE this series! And this one doesn't disappoint.
