Publisher's Summary

India and Matt thought all their problems would come to an end once they found Chronos. But the watch magician brings with him as many questions as answers, and a load of trouble. To fix Matt's magic watch, they must find an old diary that once belonged to a doctor magician murdered decades ago. The hunt drags them into a sordid mystery involving two of London's craft guilds. With old and new enemies determined to stop them, and long-held secrets unearthed, Matt and India must work together better than ever.
But as the reason for India's strangely strong magic is revealed, she wants to draw other magicians into the open, while Matt wants to hide magic to keep her safe.
Her plan backfires. His plan shatters. And danger comes to their door.

Family reunions - This is a great one!

Thank you, Lord Jesus, we have finally found Chronos. I could not take another book with them solving other mysteries while searching for Chronos. Finally, we are making progress! The characters have been developed and they are working together as a unit.
The timeline between Matt and India meeting has just been months. In that short time what began as a secret, the existence of magic, is common knowledge. Think of how many times Matt and India have ended up at the hospital questioning doctors, or the number of guilds that we have learned that has magic users. I really liked the map makers. Now magic becomes front page news.

Chronos is India’s grandfather. Grandpa and India have their coming to Jesus moment. There is anger, forgiveness, and understanding. They share the knowledge of magic. It seems with magic being secret, there is no learning process. It is not like Harry Potter where you study and proceed up levels. It seems that India’s magic is unique that Grandpa can only be amazed. I am disappointed in the lack of development for India’s magic.

Matt’s watch situation has improved. Yea!!! I got tired if the constant panic and dire situation with his health. Now we need a medical doctor to add to the watch magic. To find a doctor they must solve a 27-year-old mystery. Of course, there are people out there who want that to stay secret. It resolves some issues for our characters. India get restitution and revenge from Eddie and she can satisfy her dilemma concerning her grandpa.

Willie, whom I love, is hiding a secret which is not resolved. But she gets to pull her Colt and threaten the life of someone. She is still wild, but her brusqueness and rudeness has softened around her house mates.

There is less match making for Matt. Matt’s English cousins do not get much book time. That made an uninterrupted flow into the mystery. There are enough twist and turns to keep your attention.

Our couple, Matt and India, finally took their romance up a level. All the others in the group are still making baby steps.

I enjoy the story but with 4 books and the slow progress with getting the watch fixed ... I only gave it 4 stars.

Great series

I really do enjoy this series. The characters and story line are great. My only problem with it is that i don't really see the plot moving along. I feel like the story its being stretch out too much in order to get more books out. I really do hope the 5th book it's more complete and it actually starts developing the character's relationships.
