Review: Kiss Across Chains (Kiss Across Time #3) by Tracy Cooper-Posey

It is four years since Taylor and Brody almost lost Veris during the First Crusade. Now they know how to control time jumps, they have settled into a very nearly perfect, nearly human life, raising their daughter Marit.

When Brody defies Queen Tira to protect Marit, the three of them jump back three days in time to collect evidence the queen set up Brody for a drug bust in retribution.  The jump sends them back to Brody’s personal nightmare:  Fifth century Constantinople.

While Brody survives as a flogged slave, Taylor masquerades as the wife of an aristocrat and searches for Brody to release him.  They must wait for Veris to find them before jumping home and Taylor watches each brutal chariot race, wondering if this will be Brody’s last.  Brody once died in the Hippodrome and he is human this time, too….

I am still loving this series especially Brody. He is my favorite out of the two. I did really enjoy getting to see Constantinople and the chariot races. I really liked the time period chosen for the hop back and the fact that this makes Brody face his fears and hopefully conquer them.

I have to say this one was a little more predictable than the others in the series and this why I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5. This does not mean that I liked it any less but I like being surprised and in this one I just knew what would happen before it happened in the book. However I believe what was written was necessary for the continuation of the series as well as getting to know Brody before he became a vampire. This time instead of trying to get out of there as soon as possible the trio has to stay and let history play out to make sure that it goes as close to the same as before.

I hated to see Brody suffer in this story. If I was in this story I don’t know if I would have been able to do what Taylor had to. Seeing Brody in the conditions that he had to live in and endure what he had to endure I can completely understand why he doesn’t like confined spaces or seeing or hearing about any type of slavery. This book really humanized Brody as well as Veris.

This series is a keeper for me and a must read for fans of time travel, vampires and ménage à trois. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment and I am also a little curious to see if each book will be 4 years apart or not.
