In Remembrance, Lizzie and Drew changed the course of fate so they could be together. 

In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path. 

Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. 
To make things worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. 
There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help. 

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began... 

BOOK TRAILER - Timeless by Michelle Madow


Timeless holds all of my favorite parts to the story!
Michelle Madow did an outstanding job with the conclusion to the series...

*Spoiler Free!*

There is no time to spare in Timeless... the story picks up immediately after Remembrance -
Lizzie and Drew are able to soak in their blissful state for about 2 minutes before Lizzie realizes that something isn't right. Odd things keep happening to her. Dark things.
It seems that Lizzie and Drew are not destined for their happily-ever-after yet!
It doesn't take them long to realize who is behind their misfortune; and if they had the time to dwell on it  and be angry about it, they would! But time is ticking and the thing that they most feared can happen at any moment. They must find a way to reverse what is happening before it's too late!

I loved everything about Timeless!
The characters grow and mature so much: Lizzie and Drew's relationship blooms in strength and trust. Chelsea's character, no matter all the wrong's she did, I liked her even more this time around! She really comes into her own, thinks fast and really pulls through in the end - which is something rare to happen in stories.

The plot really picks up and moves along smoothly - Madow's writing and style gets better and better. I am really looking forward to seeing what she will be writing about next!

The Transcend Time Saga is truly a 'timeless' love story not to be forgotten!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Michelle Madow

Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and fellow classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed! 

Along with the Transcend Time Saga, Michelle Madow has written two other young adult novels, both which will be developed into series'.

Michelle Madow graduated from the Park School of Baltimore in 2005, where she always took two English classes each semester. She graduated from Rollins College in 2010, cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English. At Rollins she was a memeber of the National Society of Collegiate Schollars, and a member of the International English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta. 

She received the Charles Hyde Pratt Award for Excellence in Creative Writing in 2010. 

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
