Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Amazing series, keeps you wanting more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as the rest of the books in this series www.addictedtonovels.blogspot.com Even though I loved this book, it didn't seem to flow as well as the first 5 books in this series. I feel like it didn't totally continue right from where we left off in the 5th book and it was confusing at first. Especially when it came to Allegra. In the 5th book, Allegra had finally woken up out of her coma, so in this one, I was expecting it to continue with her after she woke up, but it went back to the past and basically told us the back story her Allegra and Charles. I feel like this could have been in one of the "on the side books", like how the back story of Schuyler and Jack's bonding ceremony is in Keys to the Repository. Everyone seems to literally end up in hell one way or another throughout the novel, which was kind of funny, in a way. There was never really any dull, boring parts, there was a lot of action, and a lot going on, but I kind of feel like Melissa rushed this novel a bit. A lot of questions from the previous books were answered, though and a few loose ends got tied up. For some reason though, I feel like something was missing in this novel that was in the first 5. Idk, maybe it's just me lol. If you've read the other books in this series, definitely read this one, but I don't highly recommend it if you haven't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adventure to the Underworld Let me just say that I really, really, really enjoyed this book. It had so much action, romance and so much mystery behind Allegra's and her familiars love story. From the very first pages, we get a glimpse of what has happened in the last book Misguided Angel. Lost in Time wont disappoint you, with any Jack and Schuyler fans, we see some interesting things *spoiler* going on with them after their bond But beyond that Melissa De La Cruz has the reader reading from 3 different views, which I usually love because we get to see different perspective and love interactions. *Above- sorry font is not working properly so you just have to highlight it* Sorry Jack and Schuyler's romance and journey to find the Gate of Promise is very lengthy. Jack is one of those characters who would do anything for the leading lady, he is completely in love with Schuyler that he would even risk his own life to let her love *TRUE LOVE* Even with his broken bond with Mimi, he would sacrifice everything. Along their adventure in Egypt, we meet new characters through Jack and Schuyler's views. Mimi and Oliver also travel to Egypt but they go to the underworld, to save Kingsley Martin. Mimi and Kingsley's relationship wasn't fully developed in past books, but it does intensify in Lost In Time. Mimi as a character really started to grow on me, with her protectiveness of her friends and about the ones she loves. Oliver only helped Mimi get to the underworld with his skills. In Lost in Time, we get a glimpse of Allegra's life before she went into a coma, before her "bonding" with Charles. If you read the novellas like Bloody Valentine- we met Ben, Schulyer's father and how they met. In this book we learn how they got together after she left the private school and graduated from college. I actually loved this part of the novel due to its background information of how love can conquer everything, its the same situation with Schuyler and Jack's predicament and how Jack is going to save Schuyler because of the bond. Like mother like daughter I was rooting for true love to win, but we will have to wait until the final novel! Lost in Time was action packed, romantic and overall one awesome book in the series of Blue Bloods. There is only 1 book left:( which comes out in 2013 which is too far away. If you haven't read the series, pick them up, they are awesome!
