Jess Grimm has the ability to travel to any dimension in the multiverse. There’s only one problem... it’s killing her.

Jess is a in a race against time to find a device that can slow the progression of the power inside her, but she isn’t alone. Others want her power, and they don’t care how they get, or if she is dead or alive when they do.

The only person willing to help her is the mysterious Ronan Sparrow a member of the League of Skull & Bones, one of the very groups that want her power. But what does Ronan want in return? Can Jess trust him or will she find herself alone with enemies on all sides?

I love steam-punk novels because I know that I will never be disappointed. For this book that was exactly what it was, I was not disappointed at all. M.J. Fletcher captured my attention right from the beginning and held onto me till the very end.

I felt the book was fast-paced for me. Everything flowed perfectly well and by the end it left me wanting more. I feel that it being also an ebook also helped with that but besides that the story was a great NA read. I feel that every NA book that I have been reading have been more than great.

Jess is a girl who I feel has major trusting issues. However, after reading what she goes through in her life, I would too. She learns to trust people that come into the story later on in throughout the book and Nyla is not helping her. But which evil character helps the main character anyway. I feel she was a good villain and these two characters are what made the story even more exciting.

Overall this book is a great read for someone who is looking for kick-ass heroine and a story full of action and adventure. I will totally be checking out this author and her books and I recommend you do the same.

I give this book 4 bites!

    This is a steampunk novel? I never would have guessed that from the cover, I would have thought contemporary! I do love a good kick-ass heroine Chayse, glad Jess is that kind of girl!

    Also, I want the stomach of that girl on the cover. Just saying.

    Steampunk time travel? That sounds really fun. And yes, I agree with Jenny. No matter how many crunches I do, my stomach does not look that good!

    I never would have guessed this was steampunk by that cover. I wouldn’t have picked this up based on that cover. But once I actually read the description it sounded good!
