Auf Ewig Mein by Eva Völler

Mittwoch, März 21, 2018
I was soooo happy when I found this beauty in my mailbox! After reading the first part of this trilogy I was eager to see how things would go on with the Time School. And Anna and her friends, of course, too. If this book would have an English edition, the title could be Forever my.

A stranger stole the time machine and created new portals in 1873 around the world. People from the future threaten to be stranded forever in colonial times. The stranger entangles Anna against her whims in a devilish game in which she and her Time School friends make a historic journey around the world and have to close the portals – in eighty days! If they win, they get the time machine back. If they fail, not only is the game lost. Because then Sebastiano also expects a terrible fate… (personal translation)

Thoughts

I am so glad that this trilogy is keeping its dust jacket style. The design is just beautiful and the connection to the novel itself is done in a great way. 
Everything you see is part of the story.
  
Anna is forced to travel with her friends from the Time School around the world, and to win a devilish game a stranger has forced her into, to keep her love alive and well. But the ghosts from the past or better said, her own future, is still hunting her and with them on her tale, she´s never safe. And what does José know? Why isn´t he telling her what she needs to know to prevent them all from a terrible mistake?

Eva Völler´s writing-style is soft and wonderful to read. The way how she combines history with fantasy is shown in a very entertaining way. It was fun to read how traveling in 1873 was. Good, the repeating of some things repeatedly wasn´t necessary – at least not in my eyes. But that´s a personal thing I´d say. And I was shaking my head when I read that one scene on board that ship – seriously? Except for that, the style was fascinating and thrilling.

Okay, it wasn´t as action filled and hilarious as the first book was, but the battle of words between Ole and Fatima was one heck of a great show. I had to laugh quite a few times while reading them. Guys, get a room and get it over with *lol*

I experienced, that while reading the novel, I got more and more annoyed by Anna´s behavior. She is way too anxious and way too trustful. But to read that she just becomes terrified and starts to panic every time Sebastiano does something that could be a bit dangerous – sorry but that´s a bit too much. Okay, they have to deal with a lot of dangerous things, but is that really a reason to kind of freak out inside every time she can´t make eye contact with her beloved one? Don´t get me wrong, she is, despite that, a wonderful character and I liked watching her and reading her thoughts and fears. But if she would think a few seconds before she starts acting, would be really helpful. 

Conclusion

No question, I had a good time reading it. But this second part wasn´t as fun and entertaining as the first book has been. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to reading the third book in this trilogy. Because at some point in this novel, the reader gets the exciting news I would like to know and explore how the development of that turns out. 




Happy reading

  1. Sounds like a good book. I haven't read any in this series and I totally love the cover. I want to go sailing with the girl on the cover. I have to add this to my TBR list.
