I bought this book after reading Forsaken and Forbidden from The Demon Trapper Series for the Dewey's Read-a-Thon October 2011. This book is nothing like them. This is a Sci-fi historical mystery book and I still enjoyed it very much. So much that I think I will buy the next book in the series very soon.
I read this book as part of the Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon.hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict.
Update 28/1-2012: Less than 24 hours after writing above post I have now bought both the second and third book in the Time Rovers series.
