Thank you to the author Shanna Lauffey for gifting me with a copy of Children of the Morning All opinions expressed are my ownI read the first book in this series a little while ago and I enjoyed this one a little I'm just really getting into this series There's still some vagueness like what I mentioned in my first review but it's remarkably better and everything is distinct1 The characters We keep the same cast of characters as in the first book and there aren't any significant one's added which allowed the author to really dig into the existing character's personalities In the first book they were just barely shaped but in this next installment they're so much clearer I finally began to really understand the main character Akalya and her frame of mind I find it's best to get to know characters through simply immersing with them in their own story and the author did a fantastic job of doing that with her There are passages before the start of each chapter that are in Akalya's voice first person which really emphasized her time traveling abilities they are written as though it's all in the past while currently in the future if that makes any sense and her personality and also offsets the rest of the book which is in third person omniscient There still remains a bit of shadow and murkiness around the two villain's though and their personal motivations2 The plot This installment is probably my favorite so far because of much we get to know about Akalya's time shifting abilities and we get to watch her shift through time and distance repeatedly and in uick succession The plot is mainly about neutralizingdelaying the threat that the two villain's pose for the Time Shifters they are capturing them and experimenting on them to gain a better understanding of their abilities and whether it can be taught or transferred to other people Once you get used to the constant shifts in time and wrap your brain around what's happening it's really enjoyable and slightly addicting Personally I haven't read that many books about time or time travel and honestly it doesn't seem like there are many out there Suffice to say this series is a good addition to the small subgenre3 The romance This is one of my favorite parts of the whole book Yes there is romance but Akalya has lived with suspicion her whole life so conseuently there is no instalove in sight It's of a slow burn romance; one where Akalya wants to learn about Marcus before getting involved with him even if she was attracted to him from the very start This serves as such a testament to both their character's and speaks to their motivations which I really enjoyedThe Final VerdictWhile there is still some murkiness present that transferred from the first installment the romance character development of the MC and the plot are all brilliantly executed4 stars

Children of the MorningThe lives of all of her kindCompelled by her promise to help Marcus the half breed to learn to control his abilities Akalya is conflicted by the need to go underground to elude the rich entrepreneur who continues to seek out others of her kind that even Akalya doesn’t. Fantastic seuel lot's of actionI read the first in this series Time Shifters a while back and said I'd love to find out what happens next Imagine my surprise when the author sent me a copy of Children of the Morning on the day it was released That was a couple weeks ago but I finally got a chance to read it Let me tell you it was just as good as the firstHere's what I liked First this installment is true to the story set up in book one Sometimes seuels get a little sidetracked but not this one I think it's a sign that the author has taken the time to plan out her story ahead of time She's also come up with a plausible set of constraints for Akayla's abilities and sticks to them Second action action and action This story is wrought with near misses sinister plots and danger even so as those targeting the main character's people become wise to her strategies I also think it was a good move to push Akayla's ability to its limit and to put other constraints in place Time and space are her playground or at least they were but as the story progresses the playground is shrinking Ok third nostalgia As in the first story Akayla spends a good deal of time in the past namely Sacramento and LA California As someone who has been there I recognized many of the locations and thought their descriptions were spot on and there are pictures Some of it saddened me time passing and beautiful things lost to all but memory but in a good way Last the romance It's still a work in progress which makes sense for a ten part story With eight books left it would take some of the fun out of it if the love interest was resolved so earlyNow for the things I didn't like Well that's difficult because my overall impression was very positive I guess all I really have is there were just a few typos Very few Maybe five or six tops On the whole though Children of the Morning is a well polished tale and I feel like I'm grasping at straws to find something I don't like about itI loved this book It's a fantastic time travel adventure with a lot less down time than in the first book and a good deal danger and the romance is just right for this stage in the story I think those who enjoy modern historical adventures like the twists that time travel introduces and enjoy a little clean romance will enjoy this story Those who have lived in or visited the places described may find that adds a certain element of nostalgia I highly recommend this book
