Wow, this tiny book turned my timeless world right upside down!
You know, while reading Timeless there were some turnarounds that left me breathless and I didn’t imagine a book of only 26 pages or so to be able to make me feel like that again.
I was wrong and I loved the twist in the story; now I really can’t wait to see how it will affect the events from Timekeeper.
To put it simple, this story takes us back into the past, it takes us back to where Michele’s story had really begun. It’s not her story to tell, but even though she doesn’t know it yet, these past events will change her future.
We get glimpses from her father’s past life, from a hidden society of time travelers and from someone that will
probably definitely play a great role into the next book – Rebecca Windsor.
I will stop here, because the story is too short for me to reveal it to you, and it would be a shame to take away from you the pleasure of discovering it all by yourself. But if you are a Timeless fan you will love “Secrets of the Time Society ” too – it will make you hungry for more, yes, but you will feel a bit closer to the wonderful world created in Timeless.
So this is me, falling in love again with this story.
And I understand how stealing a magic key would feel like – I would shamelessly do that too right now, and I think my first time leap would be right into the future. (*hint* December *hint*)

I came up with the idea for Timeless on a December afternoon in New York, while thinking about how coming of age and falling in love feels the same way no matter what century a person lives in. I wanted to explore the idea of sixteen-year-old girls from different eras experiencing what it’s like to grow up in this wonderland that is Manhattan.
As I wrestled with this idea later, I had another thought that grabbed me and wouldn’t let go: What if someone’s real love isn’t found in their own lifetime? What if someone’s true soulmate lives in the past? This idea inspired me to come up with Michele and Philip’s love story.
