After their beautiful yet brief bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force are forced to separate. To fulfill the Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler travels to Alexandria to search for Catherine of Siena and the Gate of Promise. But Schuyler quickly discovers that everything she believed about the Gate to be wrong. Meanwhile, Jack makes the difficult decision to return to New York to face his twin and former bondmate, Mimi. But instead of a bitter reunion, he is faced with a choice for which there is no good option.
Mimi, with a most unexpected travel companion in Oliver Hazard-Perry, jets off to Egypt, too, to search for Kingsley Martin, her long lost love. With all roads leading to Hell, Mimi learns that not all love stories have happy endings. But she'll have to put her own feelings aside if she's going to save her crumbling Coven. Packed with heartache, twists, and vampiric folklore, Lost in Time is sure to satisfy hungry fans' cravings for more Blue Bloods adventure.

Even though I loved this book, it didn't seem to flow as well as the first 5 books in this series. I feel like it didn't totally continue right from where we left off in the 5th book and it was confusing at first. Especially when it came to Allegra. In the 5th book, Allegra had finally woken up out of her coma, so in this one, I was expecting it to continue with her after she woke up, but it went back to the past and basically told us the back story her Allegra and Charles. I feel like this could have been in one of the "on the side books", like how the back story of Schuyler and Jack's bonding ceremony is in Keys to the Repository. Everyone seems to literally end up in hell one way or another throughout the novel, which was kind of funny, in a way. There was never really any dull, boring parts, there was a lot of action, and a lot going on, but I kind of feel like Melissa rushed this novel a bit. A lot of questions from the previous books were answered, though and a few loose ends got tied up. For some reason though, I feel like something was missing in this novel that was in the first 5. Idk, maybe it's just me lol. If you've read the other books in this series, definitely read this one, but I don't highly recommend it if you haven't.

  1. Thanks for the review. I'm not sure I'm going to seek out this series, but you've piqued my interest...

  2. I read the first three books two times each, but still managed to have a huge gap separating them from the rest of the books so I forgot a lot of what happened (this series can get confusing sometimes) but I'm glad to see you had a pretty positive view on this one. Maybe I'll have to pick up the rest of the books and give them a whirl again. (:

  3. You guys deff. have to read this series/the rest of the books! This is the only book in the series that was less than 5 hearts! For me, anyways lol

    Thanx for commenting and reading my review! :)
