    I listened to the audio thanks to Penguin Random House Audio - thank you! Unfortunately I did not jive with the narrator. About 2 hours in I got so frustrated that I put the audiobook aside for a few weeks. I only picked it back up because I wanted to know what was going to happen w...

    A little disappointing, if I'm honest. I was happy to read it, and it was nice to revisit familiar characters, and to get a deeper look into Marcus's past, but the whole 400 pages felt meandering and slightly pointless. There was no danger, no urgency, no mystery--none of the hallmarks...

    This is a sequel to the All Souls Trilogy, which I enjoyed immensely. Time's Convert was good, but...not as good. Don't get me wrong, though, it was still candy to me, and I'm still impressed with the pacing and the fact that she's obviously done her historical research. There were som...

    A lovely sojourn with old friends. Coffee with history and easter eggs, allusions, as a tasty accompaniment. A voice I love to hear speaking , a clear voice speaks in her writing. I walked into this book and literally picked up where I had left them, in my mind. Writer acumen. So ferve...

    More of a 3.5. I'm rather disappointed. This meandered a good bit. This is superficially the story of Phoebe's rebirth as a vampire. But it is also about Diana's growth as a mother and learning to put limits on those who would threaten her kids, even if they are important people and di...

    2 stars - Meh. Just ok. Unlike the majority of Goodreads readers, I found the author?s All Soul?s Trilogy to be underwhelming and overrated, despite having a plot synopsis that rang several of my trigger bells. Comparing the author to Diana Gabaldon and Neil Gaiman is, shall we ...

    This is a companion volume to Harkness?s All Souls Trilogy, which is like the thinking gal?s Twilight, as written by a historian of science. I read the first book, A Discovery of Witches, in 2011 and surprised myself by completely loving the story of the witch Diana Bishop, who res...

    A wonderful read for sure. This book went deep into history (fictionalizing it much like the Outlander series, not story but meshing history with fiction). Having read the authors other books, I expected as much. I was very much invested in the main characters and their lives. I al...

    I was totally in for another story in this world and I was thrilled to see how Marcus and Phoebe?s story was going to play out. I loved the format the most: we got a chapter of Marcus?s past, a chapter of Phoebe as she learns to be a vampire, and a chapter of Diana and the curr...

    ?Miracles should leave a mark, so that we can remember how precious they are.? p. 14 I do believe I owe Marcus MacNeil an apology. I've been so anxious to read Gallowglass's story (which Harkness, bless her forever, is writing next), that I viewed Time's Convert as somewhat of a...

    "The touch we feel as a restraint when we are younger has a way of bringing us comfort later in our lives." Deborah Harkness is a safe bet. Story in Time's Convert follows three separated storylines that author weaves skillfully together without interupting the flow of the story. It...

    For anyone that little bit obsessed with A Discovery of Witches, Time?s Convert is an essential read. I include myself in that. I love the weaving of fantasy and history. I wanted that little bit more of Diana, Matthew and the world of Deborah Harkness. Pure magical escapism. Time...

    I was over the moon excited when I found that the All Souls Trilogy had a "spinoff" featuring Marcus and Phoebe. A quarter of the way into the book, my excitement ended. The book felt like it was written by someone else, who didn't know the character backstories at all. This is labe...

    I loved author Deborah Harkness? previous trilogy and was excited about this new work. I eagerly read it and quickly remembered the characters and the basic story, even though it has been awhile since I last read about them. This book, Time?s Convert, lacks focus, and I kept feelin...

    You know how sometimes you think you really want something but then you get it and you wish you hadn't because you realize you were better off without it? That's how I feel about this book. It wasn't bad but it just seems like a totally unnecessary interlude. I wish Harkness had either...

    Time's Convert was my most anticipated book of 2018. I was very lucky to receive one of very limited Advanced Reader Copies of the book and as soon as the proof came I dove straight in. The All Souls Trilogy told the story of Diana and Matthew on their quest to solving the mystery behi...

    3.5-4 stars I finished this several days ago, but I'm so behind, I didn't get to mark it until now...and I don't remember much anymore. I just know that it was great to be back in this world, I wasn't as invested in Marcus and Phoebe going into this and not much that happened in thi...

    Family squabbles, annoying relatives and one of my least favorite themes in books: Description of wartime. Phoebe's drawn out transformation into vampirism didn't hold much appeal either. I'm so disappointed. *Sigh* Runding up to 3 stars for old times sakes. ...

    Deborah Harkness has created a new genre: luxury porn. Think about it: her vampires, at least those who belong to the de Clermont family tree, never age; are impossibly fit, no matter how much they eat (and they eat?and drink?anything and everything); are stunningly attractive a...

    I LOVE the All Souls trilogy. The books are exciting, romantic, erudite, mysterious, and full of amazing characters, history, and far-off places. I had high hopes and expectations for this book, but I found (aside from history) it lacked all of the original books? strengths. Wher...

    I absolutely loved The All Souls Trilogy! I was so excited when I saw this book coming out! I couldn't wait!! I have now discovered that having read the Trilogy 4 or so years ago and not having it fresh in my mind is a large problem. It started on page one when I couldn't remember ...

    The All Souls Trilogy is one of my all-time favourite series, a series I gladly tell everyone to read. Since finishing, I?ve been holding out for the next Deborah Harkness book I could read. Like many, I was expecting a certain story years ago only to be given Time?s Convert today....

    Somebody please tell me what happened to the other one to be published? It was about Diana & Matthew?s medieval times adventure. Not that I?m not excited for Marcus, but I was waiting that one for almost 3 years! Originally, it was planned to be outed in 2017, then it got pu...

    Received an Advanced Reader In Summer 2011 I found myself in love with the World of All Souls. So getting the chance to read Time Convert early made my summer. If you are familiar with the previous trilogy you have already been introduced to Marcus.A vampire that was sired by Ma...
