Jenny Kramer knows she isn't normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them.
When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought. Like a past life.
Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren't alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has travelled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back.
While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock - and the Order - Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life - and beyond death. - Goodreads
Wow! I really loved this book! I loved how everything just slowly keeps building up until the very end, when pretty much all hell breaks loose and everything is happening! So amazing!
I loved the characters, and I think Ben is my favorite, although at first I didn't really care for him (just cause I'm really not much into the whole emo, moody thing). He turned out to be pretty cool though, still moody at times, but a good character. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about Nikolai, he was cool and pretty awesome in his own way, but I kind of wanted Jenny to end up with Ben. I mean, Nikolai jumped forward in time to be with Jenny, which is romantic and all, but isn't that kind of like cheating? He didn't wait his turn like everyone else?
I really hope that there is going to be a sequel to this, cause I'm going to be severely disappointed and angry if I'm not able to find out what happens next.
