MY REVIEW

Blood From a Stone
by David James Warren
Book 5 in the True Lies of Rembrandt Stone series
Rating: 4.5/5

“I am rewriting all of it, and this time, I’m going to return to a life I know.”

I’m still reeling from that cliffhanger of an ending! Wow. The authors just keep getting better and better. Rembrandt Stone just keeps getting into more and more trouble. I’ve guessed who the villain is but will have to wait till the last book to confirm. This book is worth reading but please read the series in order. They are quick reads that will keep you flipping to the next page. The writing is solid and action packed but with moments of self reflection and regret. The reader will not want to stop reading to figure out what will happen next.

To a time traveler, until you’ve been someplace for a long time, rewriting the past feels like a game. We jump into the moment, armed with knowledge we shouldn’t possess, the older and wiser versions of ourselves, with the goal of rewriting our lives, this time for the better.

Highly recommend if you enjoy time traveling detectives who can’t help themselves.

My thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.

MY REVIEW

Set in Stone
by David James Warren
Book 4 in the True Lies of Rembrandt Stone series
Rating: 4/5

Wow. This series keeps getting better and better. The story picks up right where they left off in book 3. You must read the other three books before this one or else you will be confused.

“I’m starting to think that no matter what I do, what timeline I’m in, how many times I go back to fix my past, I’m going to forget something.”

Rembrandt Stone no longer has the time-traveling watch that Booker gave him. He resigns himself to live with what he did in the past and try to find the serial killer in the present. His heart is broken over the lives lost but he won’t let anything stop him from finding Leo Fitzgerald. Eve is still his wife and he is acting as interim chief of police.

“I’ve spent my entire life looking back. Wishing I’d done something differently. And…I just keep screwing it up.”

Can Rem and Eve find out how to catch the killer? Can they find a way to overcome the grief of the past?

I really enjoyed this installment. There are some reveals that are interesting and only make me want to continue reading. I really enjoyed getting to see more of Rem and Eve’s relationship as they investigate the whereabouts of the killer while also juggling some facets of Eve’s past that Rem can’t remember happening. His doubts and regrets really come back to haunt him and affect the decisions he makes. I eagerly await the next book.

Highly recommend this series if you enjoy time-traveling detective stories that will keep you up at night.

PG-13 content.
