Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

How far would you go to get revenge?

When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she'd never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea's willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe -- that she shared a past life with Drew -- is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back … well, it's downright crazy.

Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay?

Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.

*Vengeance is the short story that bridges the events in Remembrance and the final novel in the Saga.

In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path.

To make matters worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began ... and Lizzie discovers that the final events in her past life were more sinister than she ever imagined.

An explanation of how time travel works in Timeless

I always knew the final book in the Transcend Time Saga would involve the main characters time traveling back to Regency Era, England, and I couldn’t wait to write about their adventures in the past.

Of course, this involved creating my own version of time travel. I read and watch a lot of time travel stories, so I know that characters can usually travel through time by use of a machine, an object, a hole in the space/time continuum, a genetic superpower, etc. There are so many possible methods for characters to travel back in time! However, the Transcend Time Saga is a modern fairy tale, so I knew the best form of time travel for the story would be magic. 

Time travel in the world of the Transcend Time Saga is not easy. Three main conditions must be met for people to travel back in time:

1) All of the individuals must have been reincarnated

When a person travels back in time in the Transcend Time Saga, their physical body does not make the journey. Instead, their soul leaves their body and enters the body of their past self. Naturally, a person must have a past self for this journey to be possible. If you’re traveling in a group, everyone in the group must travel back to the same time period, therefore their past selves need to have all been alive in the time they are traveling to. 

2) One of the time travelers in the group must have magic in their blood

Magic sparks the connection from the present to the past, so one of the people making the journey must have magical abilities. They can either be a natural witch, meaning they are born with magic, or borrow magical abilities from a natural witch, which involves drinking a drop of the witch’s blood. This is a gift rarely given, because each drop of blood gifted from a witch decreases the witch’s power by a small percentage. Also, borrowed magic will only stay in the human’s bloodstream for one month. 

3) One of the time travelers must be in possession of an object owned by his or her past self

The more important this object was to the time traveler’s past self, the stronger the connection will be to the past. The best kind of object for time travel is a piece of jewelry worn by the time traveler’s past self. The constant contact with the past self combined with metal being a strong conductive element makes jewelry extremely powerful as a connection to the past. 

Read Timeless to find out how Lizzie, Drew, and Chelsea meet these three conditions to travel back in time to Regency Era, England!

In the fall of 2008, Michelle saw Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” music video for the first time. She thought up a story to go along with the video, and wrote the first chapter as a homework assignment for class. Her classmates and teacher loved it so much that they wanted to know what happened next, so Michelle continued writing, and that story eventually became Remembrance, the first novel in the Transcend Time Saga. She’s so happy to be able to share this series with you, and hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she loved writing it!
