Review: The Pauper (Book 3 in The Fall Series) by May Nicole Abbey

The Pauper by May Nicole Abbey
Book Three of The Fall Series
Publisher: River Valley Publishing (March 27, 2014)
Genre: Clean Romance, Adventure
My Source: I received a copy from the tour host in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.

Book Synopsis:
A mysterious stranger
A desperate mission
A grueling journey through time and space

Life had always been an exciting adventure to Heather Higgins. Even after the death of her father, the loss of a fortune, and a disappointing proposal, she yet sees the future as bright and full of possibilities. At the miraculous appearance of a mysterious man with piercing green eyes and a powerful intellect, Heather knows she has met her destiny. Whether he likes it or not.

In pursuit of a dangerous mission, Ammon Maharahi doesn’t have time for spoiled, doe eyed beauties. But no matter how hard he tries, he cannot dismiss her. Amidst his frantic travels through time and space in the effort to fix a dark future, his illness wears him down. He must find and stop a fellow time traveler before it is too late and all is lost. Tired, ill and disheartened, he wonders if he is fighting a losing battle when Heather Higgins is thrust into his path, infusing energy and life into his weary heart.

But time is running out. The answer lies with a gifted university professor from the future, as bizarre as she is brilliant. As Ammon and Heather race through time to unlock the puzzle, they know Ammon’s life and the future of all humankind slip closer to catastrophe with every tick of the clock.

My Review: This is Book 3 in the series and I haven't read the others yet, but I really want to now. This can stand alone, yet I feel that I missed a few details about some of the characters from not reading the previous books first.

Heather is a well-bred woman from the 1700s who knows her heart and mind. In my opinion, she's ahead of her time. She takes in upon herself to nurse Ammon back to health after she rescues him. Ammon seems very smug and overconfident, but he's just a well-traveled man on a mission. They both go through a lot of growth throughout the story and my opinions of them changed quite a bit through the course of it. I've been reading a lot of books lately that show that things aren't always how they seem and this book was no exception. There are plenty of things that I discovered that opened my eyes to relationships and life in general--that one decision can change the outcome of so many things.

The one thing that really jumped out at me was how one little change in the past can completely change the future. This isn't really a new idea, yet for some reason, the events in the story really made that clear to me.

I loved the way this story was woven together, including pirates, ancient Egyptians, the 18th Century, and more. There was adventure, mystery, tense moments, as well as romantic ones. I thought it was well written and best of all, it's a clean read!
