    One thought on “Winters Rising”

    1. Shannyn Leah has created a wonderful world with time jumpers, unborns, elders, gatekeepers and seconds. These all work together to make an amazing adventure with romance, danger, and intrigue. This is a fantastic book. I hope she carries in with the Winter family. I need to read more about them all. I love time travel and she really aced the time travel aspects! The story is different from her earlier work yet it contains the same type of strong likable characters that we recognize from her oth [...]

    2. 4.5 StarsGrowing up as a Second, Brea has always been taught that you do what you are told, don't ask questions and never fight your destiny. Being controlled her entire life has filled her with so much hurt and anger. Is it any wonder she's resistant when it comes to her new husband and his family? How can she be happy when all her decisions are being made for her? And how can she embrace her new life and accept her future when she is filled with so many doubts?From the moment Jax first laid ey [...]

    3. I am so excited to announce that Winters Rising will be my first book available with a "Clean Edition"! Yay! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible!

    4. Winters Rising was recommended to me by a friend. Normally, I don't read contemporary or even time travel romances, but this book was a nice break from my usual reads. What I enjoyed immensely was the interesting story line that weaved throughout the romance. It wasn't something I'd read, or really even seen, until this book. Brea and Jax's relationship was really all this story needed for conflict, because most of the arguments stemmed from them being forced to be together as "soulmates." Brea [...]

    5. Just a wonderful book covering the Gatekeepers and the seconds. I loved the interaction between Jax and his family and Brea, his soulmate. It makes the book interesting and very emotionally satisfying.I can not wait for the next book in the series. This Winters family is awesome.

    6. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review (This book was reviewed by Cathy Stansell from Rochelle's Reviews) I have read all of the By the Lake series of Shannyn Leah's books and have loved them all! Time travel books are not usually what I would chose to read but coming from her I knew I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed at I was actually amazed that I was into the book before I knew it. Jax and Brea eventually become a beautiful loving couple. It does however take time to l [...]

    7. This book took me a little time to get into and it never truly captured my attention completely however it was a good book. Conceptually this book was amazing with a new plot line that I have never read before which was a welcome change for me as a avid historical/paranormal/sci-fi/contemporary romance reader. The only thing that kept me from being completely pulled into the book was Brea. Don't get me wrong, I admired the fact that she wanted to change what she felt was wrong with her society, [...]

    8. The class system is strong in the Lexcon society. To be born a Second is to be born to be looked down upon, unless you carry a birthmark that matches that of a Gatekeeper, then you are “elevated,” not quite good enough to be considered first class, but assumed to be very fortunate to have been raised from the lowly position you were born to. Apparently, Brea, born a Second and destined to marry Gatekeeper Jax missed that “be grateful” memo because her feisty spirit and independent attitu [...]

    9. Time-travel stories can be a bit difficult to pull off. At times, the plot will get confusing, or things will seem too unrealistic. Not with this book, I’m happy to say. Then again, it’s not a normal time-travel story in my eyes. It’s a YA love story with some paranormal aspects and with a refreshing take on ‘time rips’ and people who are gifted.At the center of the story are two young adults at the brink of discovering who they really are: Brea, a Second with a stubborn streak and sas [...]

    10. I must say for my first time traveling book . This one was pretty good . The story revolves around Brea and Jax Winters . Brea is a lower class citizen in Lexicon she is called a second . But she also betrothed to the Gatekeeper, Jax Winters . Jax can time jump and when bonded to his soulmate there is so much more they can do . But alas his betrothed is headstrong and wants to change the way things are done. Will they survive the fates of Lexicon and most of all will they survive each other .The [...]

    11. This book started off great but then slowly lost steam as it progressed (or maybe I just slowly lost interest in the storyline). I loved the premise of this book, a society of time travelers and different classes of people in that society sounded like a great basis for a book. And I enjoyed that story line as it weaved throughout the romance immensely. If I had to sum up this book very quickly I'd say: Not so average girl. Hot guy. Some irritating family members. Interesting conversations. Time [...]

    12. This was my first book by this author. This was a sci -fi romance with implied sex. It is a book that I don't usually read but I enjoyed it. It speaks to overcoming many obstacles, least of which, is an expected and arranged destiny to find one's happiness in life. This book was well written. It had great flow and easy to follow.

    13. I received an arc copy in exchange for an honest review.Shannyn Leah is a new author to me. I really enjoyed this book. Brea was born a second, a lowest rank of the population, but she was also born with a birth mark that destined her to marry a gatekeeper Jax. Jax is also one of the highest in his hierarchy, he was raised to keep the balance of time. Brea does not like being told what to do, and has vowed not to complete the marriage ceremony. Will Brea accept her destiny and marry Jax in time [...]

    14. An interesting time travel romance featuring Jax and Brea Winters. It was face paced and well written. Not your normal time travel story. Lots of action and suspense and a little cliffhanger at the end. You will enjoy this book.

    15. A truly great read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The supernatural elements were compelling and interesting and the characters and their chemistry and problems were real and heartfelt. I can't wait for book two!

    16. The premise of this story is intriguing and sucked me right in. I thoroughly enjoyed Brea and Jax's story. It proves you may not always know who you are. The writing engaged me and kept me hooked to beyond the end. I'm now looking for the next in series.

    17. This is one of those reads where you care less about the characters and more about the subject. I'm still a little confused about the seconds, and unborns, but I want to know more about it all, the Lexicon, their secrets, and their society. I must also point out that this is not a sizzling or spicy read in any way.I was given an ARC for my honest opinion.

    18. Not many authors can write a believable time ravle story but Shannyn definitely nailed it! I couldn’t believe how quickly I was drawn in but it was so easy to get lost in the pages if this book. It’s well thought out and perfectly played out. I was not bored for a single second. I enjoyed every page! I hope that there is more to come.

The cover looks so beautiful!!Loved the detailing of the Winter’s crest.The book starts with a mysterious man traveling to the future and altering the future of the Lexcon( time traveling society of elders, Gatekeepers and Seconds). The main character, Brea, a Second whose life chang [...]

    25. I received an ebook free of charge from the author for an honest review.I have always loved time travel themed books and so when I came across this book's blurb, I was interested to read it. The author is new to me so I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading it. The book cover is clean and attractive but I feel it doesn't make any connection with the plot.The starting had me energised. I was intrigued with Brea's life and her thoughts. But it quickly turned to mostly whining on her pa [...]

    26. Winters Rising is a story about a society ruled by Elders who designate Gatekeepers who travel time to ensure balance in the world, to make sure no butterfly effect occurs with Rogues and to prevent any Unborns from being born. It also has other social classes such as Seconds who are raised to serve Gatekeepers and one of our main characters, Brea is a Second. She becomes mated to a Gatekeeper, Jax and they both constantly fight destiny especially as the social ladder and being raised basically [...]

    27. Wow, I really loved this story. Starting right from after the vows and the disappointment Brea experiences still not knowing her new husband at all 3 days after their marriage and not having bonded or consummated their union yet, we are drawn right into this mystical world. Brea is a Second meaning she was born to serve her Gatekeeper husband, Jax, who is rich and powerful and very hot. But it also means she had no choice in who she was to bond to nor a chance to get to know her soulmate. Her wh [...]
