I received a free copy of Carnelian for my honest opinion.
Carnelian is the first book in The Chalcedony Chronicles.
I love time-travel books! I have always found it so interesting about the logistics of time-travel, and how it affects the future.
Mari has just gone off to college and even on here first day figures out not is as it seems about 3 boys. This makes things awkward since one of them has decided that she will be his next girlfriend. Mari does not let this distract her though, which I must say was a nice change to the usual girl pining over guy situation.
I wish that the time-travel aspect came into play earlier, but Mc Michael gave me just enough to keep my wanting more.
Probably my favourite thing about Mari was that she is a thinker. Mari constantly used her brains to solve problems in ways that I would never had thought of. She never let a challenge get the better of her, and she did not get into the dreaded ‘love-triangle’, which I hate. I just wish that the chapter titles were not as obvious as they were, as they spoiled the book more than I would have liked.
