    16. Essence might just be the freshest, newest take on a young adult story I have never heard or even conceived of a story quite like this and frankly Waddinton s imagination astounds me This story jumps between the present 2009 and a distant past At first, I was a little befuddled by the jumps, unsure if it was a reincarnation, actual time travel or maybe even something else I was drawn in by its complexities and fascinated by the family, friends and love that was found between the pages My suggest [...]

Time will reveal my love is the telling inscription on a pocket watch that Jackson gives to Jocelyn in this sweet romance by A.L Waddington in her book Essence This is a captivating story of young love mysteriously taking place in two time periods Which one is reality Or are they both real I enjoyed noting the differences and similarities between the two time periods while A.L Waddington created the suspense about the strange connection that Jackson and Jocelyn have This page turner was a pleasu [...]

    18. This story is a wonderful concept with good execution for a first time author The story is original and manages to capture many of contradictions of adolescence youth maturity dependency autonomy constantly shifting sense of self The main character, Jocelyn, finds herself torn between two realities or are they The reader experiences her tumultuous existence along with her I think this is a book that will resonate with young readers than with older adults It could benefit from closer editing, bu [...]

My Review I absolutely loved this book From the very beginning I was hooked, then the ending why oh why did there has to be a cliffhanger Jocelyn was so smart but I just wanted to scream the answer at her The you can just tell Jackson is hot and so yummy and someone I wished I met in high school The different scenes kind of threw me but once I got the hang of it I wanted The Jocelyn from the past isn t the same Jocelyn from the future, I mean they are the same person but two different personali [...]

    22. The moment I finished reading the ARC, it felt like I lost a friend Essence is incredibly written with a great new storyline without vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures The moments when Joeclyn is in the hospital, you can really see and understand just how much Jackson cares for her and I love that I highly recommend this book to anyone and you would have to be crazy not to love this book as much a I do.

    25. See this full review and at bookbriefs Essence takes place in two time periods The chapters alternate between the present, 2009 and 1848 I really enjoyed trying to piece the mystery of what was happening together I liked reading the dual stories because I just couldn t pinpoint what exactly was happening Some of the characters were the same, but many of the characters in the two time periods were different not only in name, but also in personality So I just couldn t figure out if they were all [...]

    29. Essence, the first book in the EVE series, is simply amazing It has a unique take on time travel and there s no sci fi involved Funny, though, as it s the only way time travel could be possible without breaking many of our fundamental laws of science.The book, at heart, is mainly a young adult romance novel However, I m 42 and enjoyed the book very much I got an advanced reading copy of the book and can t wait for it to be published so I can read it again, with all the finishing touches added in [...]
