Everyone has a past, but for most it isn’t so far in the past as Seth Sangre. His past is literally from thousands of years ago. Seth’s past led him to the present seeking something that might help him save his country from destruction. He has been in the present for over three years now and just found exactly what he has been looking for. 

Mari had dreams of college being a fresh start, one where she would start over and not fall for the good looking player like high school. Unfortunately for her that’s exactly what ends up falling into her lap on the first day she moves into the dorms. Now she has to hold to her promise to herself and not fall for the handsome Seth. But he doesn’t plan to make it easy for her. Seth has already marked her as his next conquest. As the semester progresses, Mari learns that Seth might just have a past of his own that’s literally in the past. Suddenly Mari finds her future along with her past put into question. She’s connected to Seth far more than she ever wanted to be and maybe the player isn’t who she thought he was. If Mari can trust her heart enough to follow him, Seth will lead Mari on an adventure of a lifetime and reveal family secrets she never knew existed.


*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Carnelian is the first book of a new series featuring time traveling characters, ancient cultures, an all knowing Goddess, and your everyday college student problems.
College Freshman Mari meets the mysterious Seth Sangre when he literally falls on her lap, she is wary of him at first because of his heartbreaker reputation but she can’t help feeling sparks every time she is near him; there is also the fact about Seth’s mysterious past including his two equally mysterious brothers.

The pros

-The Concept: lately I’ve read time travel novels where the methods of moving through time make no sense however this book the time traveling actually made sense.

-Positive College outlook: So many books make College look like the most horrible experience ever yet in Carnelian tells you that yes college is hard and you have to work hard but there is also time to have fun and enjoy yourself.

-Mari and Seth’s relationship: I loved the way the author wrote the scenes between those two.

-Egypt: Nearly all the time travel romance I have read take place in the US or England, it was nice to see that the author picked such an interesting place.

The cons

-Mari being judgmental: she hadn’t even spoken to Seth and she had already decided that he was a horrible person not worth her time.

-The Pace: At first the pace was great but in the end it felt very rushed.

-Secondary characters: All the secondary characters were interesting but we hardly saw them, I need more Dee.
