Marking Time

Marking Time Summary

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.
Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

Traveler Fan5 star

I have always loved time traveling books and this one was truly a delight to read. The book grabbed you from the beginning and took you on a roller coaster read. Some books can go on and on and you lose interest, but not this book. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to read all day just to find out what happened next. Love the story and look forward to reading the next book in the series.55

Can't put it down5 star

This is a book once you start reading you can't stop. Interesting plot and the characters are developed nicely. I am hooked and will definitely read the rest books in the series. Would love to see more work from April White in the future. And would be very excited if her Immortal series to be made into movies.55
