What a gripping sequel!
In Chrysoprase, the story picks up where Carnelian left off. Mari just returned to her own time only to discover that the Goddess had sent her mother back to her own time, and Seth did not return with her to the present. I guess that rescue mission failed! #epicfail. Lets start from the beginning shall we...
Mari is an 18-year-old girl in her first year of college in MN. She meets and falls in love with Seth, aka the “Edward Cullen” of all guys, and learns that he is a time traveler. When Seth has to return to his own time, Mari decides that this is unacceptable and finds out how to follow him in the past and bring him back. Little did Mari know that her own mother is a part of the same time period as Seth, and in fact even knows him! I'm jumping ahead, so sorry. The story is so entangled with every part of everything that it's hard not to reveal one thing! Returning to recap, that was book one in a nutshell. Book two is where you get your mind blown.
Now that Mari knows Seth did not return with her, and knows who her mother really is, she turns to the only person she can, Ty. I'm not sure why Ty made it back but I guess someone had to! So Mari and Ty begin planning their return to the past to bring Seth and her mother back. They have no clue how to time travel back to a past that far back, nor how to bring someone with them. Right here is where the story takes a total U-Turn and begins the mind blow. For the rest of the story, it's all action, drama, and danger! I still don't have the bigger picture that I know is there. With all great stories, you never are able to figure out the ending, right?
New characters were introduced, some friendly, some not so friendly. With the new characters came new story lines, new layers to the existing one, which brought me to a whole new level of enrapturement. That's right, I'm making up words, lol! Mari is introduced to her mother's sister Juni, and her son Prince Saru and his evil wife Saska. Mari learns quickly that no one can be trusted in her mother's time, but instead of keeping her head down and her mouth shut, she does quite the opposite which brings her to the predicament she is currently in. Sometimes the past is a shock and disgusts me, which is why I prefer to not read historical books, but the realness of the evil men did in the past is what got my heart pumping, and peaked my curiosity to stay glued to the story and find out what was going to happen next. It was like watching a train wreck, you can't help yourself. It is a total rush, I loved every part of it!
Hollie Jackson delivers another riveting performance! Hollie narrated the first book, Carnelian as well. Her tone reflects Mari's character so well, I can't imagine anyone else as Mari. Excellent job Hollie, you score a well deserved 5 Star Rating!
