Description

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.
Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

    I love time travel books. I will say, you are the best writer so far, very different twist on time travel, make it seem real/possible. Don't stop writing and thinking up new ideas for books, you have what it takes!

    This was a beautifully researched book that captivated me from the beginning. I would love to see it made into a movie along with the other books in the series. Time travel opens so many possibilities.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! It made me smile and it made me cry. It is such a creative story, and I loved the characters. The concept that White has create about Immortals and time travel is totally unique. I loved Saira. She is a brilliant protagonist for first person: tough, loyal, caring, funny. Definitely not one of those annoying YA females. I'm itching for a sequel. Read it! It's great :)
