After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world.

Book 3 in the Maiden of Time trilogy:

Release date: November 1, 2016

Time is the enemy.

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

“A magical, fast-paced, romantic adventure…” --T. Drecker, Bookworm for Kids

“A story of love...true and forbidden love. There's mystery…tension, action...everything.” –Chrys Fey, author of Ghost of Death

"If you like character-driven YA fantasy-thrillers, atmospheric romances, brave heroines who grow into their strength, flawed heroes, and beautifully written prose, you can’t do better than this epic trilogy." --Barb Taub, author
