“Love Beyond Time” is the first book in the Outsider series. The Outsiders are the ones who try to keep right and wrong in balance. During the war, around 30 years ago, when the Outsiders were infants, and their parents were losing the battles, the leader of the Outsiders tried to save all the children from the Darkness by sending them all to a chosen warrior. There are 19 total Outsiders remaining, 18 children and the warrior set to raise them. Not all of the children made it to the warrior and the rest would need to be found. As the battle starts hitting closer to home another of the lost Outsiders are found.
Kal has been raised as an Outsider, he has known he has special powers to fight against evil and he has been battling it for all of his life with a small group of other Outsiders who were saved together. As he is gone for a camping weekend he unknowingly locates another Outsider, little does he realize that she is actually his soul-mate. Isabelle has always known she was a little different but she is soon going to realize why. As the Darkness chases them and destroys her family she learns the truth of where she comes from. Kal and Isabelle must learn to fight together to try to win this first main battle against the Darkness. They will also need the support of the other Outsiders as they all learn they have abilities they never knew they had.
Ms Royce has once again made a world that is believable and enjoyable to read. Some of the pages also seem to sizzle. I was quickly drawn into this book and I am looking forward to starting the next book “Love Beyond Sanity” right away. Ms Royce does not disappoint.
Born one half of a perfect pair, Kal has spent his life believing his other half is gone. But when fate thrusts Isabelle into his arms, he will have no choice but to become the man he was destined to be. That is, if he can battle his own demons first.
Not willing to accept her heritage as an Outsider, Isabelle tries to hide from the truth. But when Kal’s life is on the line, she will have to step forward and embrace her powers or watch everything she has come to love disappear.
