The crew of the Prometheus is intent on taking down the world's clock towers so that time can run freely. Now captives, Colton, Daphne, and the others have a stark choice: join the Prometheus's cause or fight back in any small way they can and face the consequences. But Zavier, leader of the terrorists, has a bigger plan--to bring back the lost god of time.

As new threats emerge, loyalties must shift. No matter where the Prometheus goes--Prague, Austria, India--nowhere is safe, and every second ticks closer toward the eleventh hour. Walking the line between villainy and heroism, each will have to choose what's most important: saving those you love at the expense of the many, or making impossible sacrifices for the sake of a better world.


This review has sat on my list for quite some time, too long, to be honest. Probably because I am STILL not over it. I expected to be broken after Tara’s frequent posts but I still didn’t fully believe how badly she would wreck us.

And wreck us she did.

There’s a reason why this book has a solid 4+ star rating on Goodreads. There’s a reason why everyone who reads this series wants to shove it into everyone’s TBRs. 

That reason is Danny. And Colton. And failing clock towers. Gods of time. Angst. PLUS WHO NEEDS YOUR HEART JUST HAND IT RIGHT OVER TO TARA TO BE CRUSHED. 

To say Tara sends these characters to the edge of the cliff and back (and maybe a bit over) is an understatement. It’s the final book in a world that is ready for revolution and freedom. For characters that have everything working against them. The stakes are high. The chances are low. 

I loved every minute. 

PS. The audiobook is amazing. Locally produced by a woman-owned production company. Highly recommend!
