The Loved and the Lost: Review

From Goodreads:
They are three time travelers desperate to return to 14th-century Verona to reclaim their medieval family s shattered lives. It is a mission fraught with danger and the risk of unexpected consequences for themselves and for their worlds. For all three, it is a matter of the heart. For one, though, it is truly the only thing that matters, as the fate of his eternal love and the life of their unborn child is the prize to be won or lost forever. In this, the final book of THE VERONA TRILOGY, Hansum, Shamira and Lincoln go on the boldest adventure of their lives. They will face hardship, tragedy, and threats from sources they couldn t have imagined all in an effort to wrestle a future from the steely grip of an unforgiving past.

My Review
:
I enjoyed this book so much! It was so good, and good ending to the series, and it was what I wanted to read for this book, and yeah, it was just fantastic! I mean, there's a lot of back and forth between the past and the future, and trying to change things, it was just great!

I loved seeing the various ways they tried to change the timeline, to make things better, and as things just kept not working, that these people-not teens really, anymore, as the years go on, till they're the age of the average grandparent!

And then they finally make it! And yeah, just having that, having the timeline reset, and having Hansum's in-laws, and his love, with him, in his time, yeah, that was a really great ending, like mentioning that their love story was famous! Loved that!

Though I have one thing-one guy died in the timeline, and yeah, that sucked. And then he was brought back in the reset. Not the first one, but the last one, the one that mattered. So yeah, what I'm wondering is, why didn't he come back in a previous reset, but the one that actually kept him alive?

All in all, loved this book so much, it was so entertaining, and it was a great end to the series!

Bio:
“I write Post-Dystopian fiction. After society’s collapse, which is imagined in so many great dystopian stories, humans will either fade into history, with the dinosaurs, or, if it learns the right lessons, society will go on to construct a civilization to last tens of thousands of years. History Camp stories are the exciting adventures of young people doing the latter.” -Lory Kaufman
