When a portal leaves
Baxter trapped and powerless in an alternate world, she finds herself on
the run and fighting for her life. The world’s Council wants to hand
her over to Declan, and her only source of support is a broken Alternate
Jack who blames her for all he’s lost. Baxter soon realizes that if
she’s going to defeat Declan and get back to her world, she’ll have to
reclaim her abilities and be stronger than she ever imagined.
Declan
and the Absorbers’ Initiative wage war on everyone who opposes them in
their hunt for Baxter. Their actions reveal what her future will be like
if she doesn’t make some drastic decisions. She knows that one misstep
on her part will lead to the destruction of not just this world, but her
own.

In a race against Time and bitter enemies, Baxter will
discover how much is at stake and just what she’ll have to sacrifice to
save those she loves. Can she learn from the fate of an alternate world
how to become the Time Bender she’s meant to be?

Tome Tender’s Review of…

 Alternate by Marilyn Almodovar
 (Chronicles of the Interred, #3)



Alternate (Chronicles of the Interred, #3)She is Baxter Number 7 in the alternate world she has found herself in. Powerless, Baxter must deal with seeing old friends who are not her friends, and, of course, Jack. But Alternate Jack is not like her Jack, he is older, sadder and bitter, blaming our Baxter for his loss of a special power, his loss of his Baxter. Would he rather see our Baxter dead than help her return home or defeat DeClan? So many things are different, yet so much feels like it should be the same, friends, not friends, some alive here while dead in Baxter’s dimension, but always DeClan is hot on her tale, chasing her through dimensions, killing off as many of the other Baxters as possible.


The time has come for our Baxter to take a stand, no matter the cost, fi she is meant to defeat DeClan, it is now or never, but how will she do it with no powers and without being sure of who stands with her? Why this dimension, why not with her Jack, the one who loves her?


Okay, I know, talk of dimensions, multiple Baxters, multiple Jacks, followers of Marilyn Almodovar and her brilliant series know what I am talking about, brilliant storytelling, weaving of fantasy and adversity, love and war and one girl, expected to save the world from the twisted grip of a deranged monster. Alternate is another edgy addition that is gripping, while alternating between being driven by the characters and the action, as well as the impending doom should all fail. Ms. Almodovar’s concept of different dimensions or planes of existence is just another fabulous weapon of words and imagination in her arsenal of creativity. Every dimension is separate and the outcomes may vary, but only in one will the final battle come. Will these dimensions clash or become the unlikely allies in the war against evil?


High tension, overflowing with emotional turmoil, precarious situations and one girl at the vortex. A highly recommended series to exercise one’s wildest imaginations, all while asking, “what if?”

Available from: Amazon / Barnes & Noble


Synopsis:

Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.

As
her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will
change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young
man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122
years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she
has no idea how to do it.

To acquire the power she needs to free
him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities
emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan
isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.

As
the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A
vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her.
Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can
save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to
master her new abilities before Time runs out.

Tome Tender rating: 5 of 5 stars


Series: Chronicles of the Interred – Book 2
Publication Date: May 18, 2014
Publisher: Iambe Books, LLC
Genre: YA Fantasy
Print Length: 286 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Synopsis:

Baxter Jacobs just
survived the worst Sweet Sixteen in history: buried in a coffin, hunted
down by assassins, and losing almost everything that mattered to her.
She’s ready for some normalcy, but “normal” won’t play any part of this
Time Bender’s future.
Now that the immediate threat is over, Baxter
learns just how much the English Council expects of the newest Interred.
The pressure has her seriously considering her uncle’s offer to take
her to New York, especially since she thinks it will keep her Healer,
Jack, from overusing his abilities. Knowing the New York Council’s ranks
are filled with beings using dark powers, however, makes her hesitate.

Before
she can choose, the decision is wrenched from her. Fissures in Time
result in a new battle with an old enemy. Someone she thought she’d lost
reenters her life, and she’ll discover a web of lies woven into the
fabric of Time…lies only she can unravel. Baxter will have to use her
growing abilities to try and reveal the truth, even if it forever
changes the reality she knows.

There are lies in the fabric of Time only she can unravel…
