Publisher's Summary

The past is waiting.

Josie Jackson has been thrown back to the era of the Mongol Empire by Carter, the mastermind behind her trip to the Old West. Soon after arriving, she’s discovered by Carter’s enemies. They sever her connection to her handler, leaving her no choice but to obey them - or risk never making it home. 

She completes the mission they assign her, only to have her hope of seeing her family and time again crushed. Her new handlers have stranded her in the past - alone, friendless, and with no empathic memory chip to help her navigate the dangerous politics of an empire at war.

When a Mongol warrior named Batu becomes her protector and guide, she can't decide if she's better off with him or alone. Strong, brave, loyal, and quick to both laugh and kill, Batu and his world initially baffle her. With nowhere else to turn and no other option, Josie takes a chance to find happiness in the beautiful yet dangerous steppes of 13th century Mongolia.

Taking Lizzy in the car with me is great.

East is a great story and Josie is such a likeable character. I love the twists and turns and how you never know who is trying to help Josie and who is trying to hurt her.
The reading was pretty good and you could tell who was who as the reader changed her tone of voice.
I think you should try it.....

Drama and adventure

This second book in the History Interrupted series was not as fascinating for me as the first one but I still found it very good. I'm sure it was the setting (13th century Mongolia) that I didn't find as interesting but the adventure itself was entertaining. Josie is a brave, strong woman who faces her mission head on. I love going along on her adventures. Both the writing and the narration for this book were excellent and I am looking forward to book 3! I could tell by the ending of this book that the next one is going to be to my liking. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Exciting

I really never expected the final twist in this story. It totally threw me!
The story itself is engrossingly brilliant and a 'page-turner' of note.
Lizzy Ford certainly knows how to spin a tail and she does so in an easy and well plotted way with well thought out characters who come to life in the telling of this story.
Lillian Yves, the narrator, enhances it with her interesting rendition of 'East' and I loved the effortless voice changes that identify each character.
This is the second book in the series and I am very happy to recommend it as and exciting and entertaining stand-alone that held my attention and kept me entertained throughout.
I listened to an audiobook supplied by the narrator and this is my voluntary and unbiased review of it.

Looking forward to Book 3

Time travel to this century is not easy for Josie. She must learn to like it and except its ways. Is she trapped here? Time will tell.
Not as good as Book 1 but still very worth the read.

East

"I've been an emotional mess..", yup that's you Josie. That's why we like you.
Batu, you are strong, funny, and no nonsense. Easily my favorite character from this series so far. He was a great contrast with Josie and I enjoyed their back and forth throughout the book. A must read.

I Tried To Drag The Book Out As Long As Possible, Didn’t Want it to End!

Josie is swept from the West in book 1 to Mongolia, back in time..the only direction she’s been told she can go. Looked at as a goddess, Josie is struggling to survive..until she is put to sleep for years to awake in Persia.
Confused who to trust, who is also a time traveler, what does Carter want from her. Mourning the undoing of Taylor...determined to be aloof from those around...finding the life violent..with many trials...yet Josie is the type of woman who cares and feels responsible for those she is surrounded.
A prominent figure as her protector was Batu...
The relationships Josie becomes involved with..looking at the past..the wonderful writing to explain the emotions and travails Josie must live through brings and entertaining, emotional and fantastic journey .
The narrator is fantastic...her voice, cadence, emotion..creates the worlds Josie finds herself.
I just didn’t want the book to end and want the next, North ...I’m going to assume there will also be a book South...I am so involved in Josie and what will happen to her..if she will see Batu again..who will she met now as she finds herself with Vikings!
This series is perfect for history buffs, time traveling and mystery and suspense books and last but not least, the love Josie finds whether for children, other women, or the men she becomes attached .
Worth several credits...I will listen to these books over and over!

LOVING THIS SERIES!

I absolutely love this series. I read the first book (West) in this series and it was amazing as well! The narration is superb and gives that extra flair to the books. This author gives you great detail with her character builds and plots. I look forward to reading the next book in this series (North). I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Really good

The Audiobook was really good I like it more than the first one to be honest. It had more action, adventure and moments I was like omg. I love batu he was such an awesome character. I was hoping that josie would have her happy ending but no have to listen to book 3. But if your a fan of lizzy ford I would seriously reccomend this book.

Fabulously enjoyable!

This audiobook needs to come with two warnings. 1. You have to read the books in order. Each subsequent book is a continuation of the previous as Josie's time travel adventures (or is that misadventures?) continue. 2. Set time aside to listen to this book because it is hard to press pause for an extended period of time. Perhaps a third warning should be to plan on purchasing the whole series because you are probably going to want to know what happens next.

Josie's time travels take her to the Mongolian steppes during the peak of the Mongolian empire. Despite being fiction, I like how Lizzy Ford tries to make the story as culturally authentic as possible. The Mongolians assume she is a goddess gifted to them from the sky. Only Carter places her 70 years before she is needed and he puts her to sleep and tucks her away for that time. She wakes in Iraq just before the community she is in is decimated by the Mongols. She finds herself the "prisoner" of the appointed guardian of the goddess Moonbeam (which is her name in this time) and after several harrowing challenges she accompanied Batu (her guardian) to his home on the steppes.

Despite their cultural differences, Batu and Moonbeam find their relationship developing and morphing from friends to much more. Life on the Mongolian steppes isn't easy but Josie slowly finds her footing. However, Carter has more planned for her.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Being a series and knowing how Carter can suddenly pull the plug on Josie's time in a certain era, the reader is anticipating his next move while hoping it won't happen. As soon as I finished this book I started the next and am now eagerly anticipating the last book in the series. Ummm.... actually I cannot wait for the last book!!!

Better than the first!

Well that was a rollercoaster.
Josie has left the old West and been dumped into the Mongol Empire. Feeling out of place there was nothing compared to here. She has no idea who to trust or what she’s supposed to do, desperate for home but with no way to return, she doesn’t know what to do or who to trust, definitely not Batu the warrior she meets ‘imprisoned’ in a dungeon.
Told from the first person Lizzy again makes us feel what she feels, weaves a dizzying tale of a woman out of time. But this time, she’s a little stronger and a little more determined not to let circumstances drag her down.

I’m a huge Lizzy fan, but Josie annoyed me a little in the first book, in this one she’s grown and won me over, I literally couldn’t put it down.
The ending though Lizzy WHY?!! I know there are 4 books but the stress! I need the rest immediately, please and thank you!

This series goes from strength to strength

Lizzy Ford, author extraordinaire, is an evil mastermind. She knows exactly how to weave a suspenseful tale and how much to give the reader before taking it away, enough to break your heart and enough to make you demand to know how Josie's story ends.

Written in the first person, from the perspective of Josie, we feel everything that this lovable and sensitive (but not too sensitive) characters as she's torn from the world she knows and finds herself lost in time and in Mongolia, on this occasion.

Still reeling from the upheavals that beset her in the first book, she has to find herself a place in this new world. What makes this so engaging to read/listen to is that she's developing as a character and Ford takes a deep dive into her psyche to really explore how being so lost and confused would feel when you're a naturally warm and empathetic person. This is why the author is an evil mastermind.

I'm impressed by the scope of the author's writing, she's successfully gone from the wild West to the Mongolian empire without breaking her stride - writing outside your own culture can be a minefield but in this case, I think it's perfectly done.

The book follows the journey of Josie and Batu to the steppes, their interactions are fascinating as they bond despite being such different people. There's nothing rushed in the writing style and I was hooked.

Not only does every fan of time travel, fantasy and romance needs to listen to this book. I think that Lillian Yves' has outdone herself with this particular title - she turns Josie into a real and breathing person for you, which makes this story all the more breathtaking. As a first person perspective, I think it's essential to pick the right voice artist for the role and this was a match made in heaven.
