The River of No Return Read ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub Free download ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub æ Bee Ridgway Read The River of No Return Es Then the Guild asks him to break its own rule It needs Nick to go back to 1815 to fight the Guild’s enemies and to find something called the TalismanIn 1815 Julia Percy mourns the death of her beloved grandfather an earl who could play with time On his deathbed he whispers in her ear “Pretend” Pretend what When Nick returns home as if from the dead old. I must confess my initial interest in Bee Ridgway s debut The River of No Return was superficial I fell in love with the gorgeous cover The I read about the premise a time travelling historical romance with an emphasis on the romance the dubious I became Then there s the fact that it has been widely compared to The Time Traveler s Wife a book I tried three times to read without any success and A Discovery of Witches a book I finished but in many ways disliked All in all by the time I came to actually start reading this book I was a bit concerned I would end up hating it It was a relief to find it was in fact very enjoyableThe story begins in 1815 with 22 year old Julia Percy at her grandfather s bedside as he takes his last breaths Julia believes his secret power the manipulation of time has died with him and she dreads the arrival of her unpleasant cousin Eamon the new earl The scene then switches to Vermont in 2013 where Nick Davenant the wealthy owner of several farms lives a content yet complicated life Nick is not what he seems he is a member of the Guild an organisation made up of those who like Nick have jumped through time and found themselves in an age not their own At the moment of his near death in 1812 he was transported to 2003 and after a strange and painful period of adjustment he has made peace with his unconventional existence That is until he receives a summons from the Guild which contradicts one of its own cardinal rules Does this mean the principal law of the Guild that there can be no return could be broken too And what connects Nick s summons to Julia s predicament back in the nineteenth centuryAfter a slightly clumsy start which didn t give me a very positive impression of Nick s character I soon found myself intrigued by the multi layered plot particularly the uestions surrounding the Guild s operation Between Nick s story Julia s story the background of the Guild and its shadowy enemies and real life historical events affecting the characters there s a lot in this book but it works there is plenty of detail but it s all very fast moving and never becomes dull nor does it feel like the author is throwing too much information at you impressive given that the amount that needs explaining about how all this works As for the love story it s pleasant enough and thankfully believable I was relieved to find that there was already an established connection between the two main characters rather than it being one of these insta love situations the reader was easily able to imagine that had none of the fantastical parts of the story actually happened these two would probably have ended up together anyway I did feel that Nick was being a bit too forward with Julia at times given the strictures of the age which he was obviously familiar with but for the most part I liked them together believed in their feelings for each other and wanted them to be happy Beyond this I don t think I can discuss the plot in any further detail without significant spoilers Suffice to say I was carried along by the momentum of it and once I d got to grips with the basic principles of the timey wimey stuff and the dynamic between the characters I was hookedThe one thing I will say without actually spoiling anything is that it s very obvious at the end that the stage is being set for a seuel This can be read as a standalone book and there s no cliffhanger as such but there is plenty that could still be explored about this world and a number of uestions which aren t answered comprehensively I won t pretend this didn t disappoint me a little I d have preferred to think of this as a single novel not the start of some fantasy romance series Would I read The River of No Return 2 Yes I probably would but I have a gut feeling it would be inferior to this one I obviously can t say with absolute accuracy but I don t think this book is really anything like The Time Traveler s Wife excepting the obvious link of the time travel theme It is much like A Discovery of Witches a romance between two characters with supernatural abilities the juxtaposition of rich historical detail and the present day a secret organisation that holds all the power our hero and heroine used as pawns by greater forces but it avoided all the things that marred that story in other words the male protagonist wasn t repulsive the description wasn t too corny and the romantic scenes didn t make me feel sick The River of No Return is for me best described as a good old fashioned rollercoaster of an adventure story The romance aspect is appealing but it doesn t overwhelm the plot to the detriment of other elements It s a shame it doesn t look likely that this will be a standalone novel as I d like to read a totally different story from the same author but obviously that wouldn t stop me from recommending this one If anything about the idea of it strikes you as interesting you ll probably love it The Collected Stories of Stefan Zweig play with time On his deathbed he whispers in her ear “Pretend” Pretend what When Nick returns home as if from the dead old.
