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.

overall a pretty good listen

I received this book free from eblast, the author, and publisher. this is my unbiased opinion. I like the story a lot. I like the narrator as well. the heroin, is kind a whiny and got on my nerves. if you can look past that its a pretty good story.

Fascinating!

This was a great second installment to the series as Josie continues her time-traveling adventures Ms. Ford has written a series with intriguing themes and engaging characters. This book is full of adventure, drama, and multiple surprises. Enjoyable listening!

Ms. Yves narration is great. Her delivery is well-paced, she gives distinct voices to the different characters, and suits her delivery to match the characters' emotions.

I am looking forward to the next book; I can't wait to see what awaits Josie next.

Different time, good story

I liked this book, start to finish. Heartbreaking and heartwarming at once. A lot of adventure, a lot of questions, a lot of passion...and, surprise!

Like Josie, I really can't help but hate Carter. Thrust in situations she has no control over. Learning to live and trust, just to be yanked out at the worst possible moments. The big question, what is it all for?

The narrator is pretty perfect for this series, she does a great job of bringing the story to vivid life.

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.
