Today I will be reviewing The Immortal Descendants by April White books 1 through 5. The books are named Marking Time, Tempting Fate, Changing Nature, Waging War, Cheating Death.
Marking Time, we come to see the world of Saria Elian, a teenager running the streets of London as a tagger, a graffiti artist. She starts a time traveling adventure with the mysterious Archer and the street urchin Ringo. Saria goes to Victorian London by accident and finds herself in the middle of the Jack the Ripper murders trying to find her mother and learn about her mother’s past.
Tempting Fate, Saria has returned from finding her mother and is back from her past adventures when she has a dream that seems incredibly real about Ringo’s (the street thief) torture by the hands of her worst opponent Jack the Ripper. Then Saria ends up meeting Queen Elizabeth Tudor (the first) and stops her execution so she can lead a long 44-year rule of England.
Changing Nature, Saria is not currently on any adventures while looking for a friend lost in time kidnapped by Jack the Ripper and in the process of finding him is in the middle of the 100-year war between England and France and ends up meeting Joan of Arc. While time is also being affected by another time traveler with ulterior motive.
Waging War, Saria is back training herself for future battles against many foes when Saria and her companions realize that their friend who was kidnaped by Jack the Ripper is in the middle of World War 2 and is not the same person who he used to be. While he is on a path to kill his grandfather so he doesn’t exist. But things won’t go as expected for him.
Cheating Death, Saria has gone back in time to many places but this time she has gone to the Vatican to find the cause of some of her problems. She has done many things but in the final novel she will do much more she will fight war and attempt to unite her people to finally free everyone “to heal the dream wars undone”.
In the end I suggest The Immortal Descendants series to all who love a good story and don’t mind a little romance on the side.
