On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young Massachusetts surgeon, at a moment of political awakening when the world seems to be on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the limitations of his Puritan upbringing, Marcus jumps at the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not easy, and the old traditions and responsibilities of the Clermont family collide with Marcus’ deep belief in liberty, equality and brotherhood.

Fast forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor, the young Sotheby’s clerk Marcus has fallen in love with, is about to embark on her own journey to immortality.

Though the modernized version of the process seems straightforward at first, the two discover that the challenges faced by a human who aspires to be a vampire are no less daunting than they were in the 18th century. The shadows Marcus thought he had escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both forever.

Time’s Convert, the fourth book in the All Souls series, is a gripping love story and an engrossing exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not only for change but also for revolution. Previous instant bestsellers illuminate a pivotal new moment in history and a Love story that will span centuries.

In my opinion, Time’s Convert is not standalone. It’s been a while since I’ve read the other entertaining books in the series. I remember feeling almost overwhelmed by the details during these trips. . . sometimes good, sometimes not. Whole paragraphs deserved their own place on the history shelves, the prose was wonderful, the characters well drawn, the plots tight. At times I felt that the books were extremely intellectual, but I bravely kept reading in the hope that some of the knowledge would remain in my brain.

My long awaited journey with Time’s Convert ended with mixed feelings. The good news first. This book deserves five stars for its extensive research. I’m sure Ms. Harkness did her homework and worked hard to get the details of the time, locations, events and real historical figures right. I felt in good hands and not lost in a complete fantasy world.

Apart from vampires, witches and demons of course. Characters like Thomas Paine, Ben Franklin, and Lafayette, for example, have dialogue, but as fictional as they are, I felt good that the author didn’t stray too far from the mark and pulled things out of thin air just to entertain me. (Contrasted with The Crown on Netflix, which I honestly didn’t think was pure fiction. Is it? Angry here and rambling.)

The hardest part of my review, even though I’m an American, I didn’t care about the Revolutionary War sections. During these scenes, mainly the middle part of the book, the action was pushed aside and the reading delayed. There were so many characters, names, cities, houses, events that I needed a map. Some of these characters had their own arcs and I found I just didn’t care.

In this middle part I was wondering what the book was about. Where was Mrs Harkness going? It felt like a bunch of separate stories pointlessly colliding. At some point I realized that the book was about the story of Phoebe and Marcus and their vampiric development. Phoebe’s transition was in real time, and Marcus, being an old vampire, is told in a flashback.

Sandwiched between Phoebe’s great awakening and struggles and Marcus’ long backstory (how many cities do we follow him through in this book? How many years? Too many to count) were the De Clermonts, the main vampire family, as well as the main character of the Witch – Diana. But these wonderful characters were very secondary. They also had plans and problems, but those were side stories and went nowhere. And the thing was, I love these characters. Every time Ysabeau walks into a room, I get emotional. Diana’s magic is beyond awesome.

Baldwin is very interesting. I want to sail with Gallowglass or at least drink with it. If I hadn’t read the other books, I would have been totally lost as to who all these people were and what their significance was. I imagine Mrs Harkness had to make a choice about who to write for, and she made a choice.

I have great respect for this author and what she has achieved and will most likely read the next part. Or whatever else she writes.
