When Philip Walker appears as a new student in Michele Windsor's high school class, she is floored. He is the love she thought she lost forever when they said goodbye during her time travels last century. Overjoyed that they can resume the relationship they had a lifetime ago, Michele eagerly approaches him and discovers the unthinkable: he doesn't remember her. In fact, he doesn't seem to remember anything about the Philip Walker of 1910. Michele then finds her father's journals, which tell stories of his time-traveling past. As she digs deeper, she learns about his entanglement with a mysterious and powerful organization called the Time Society and his dealings with a vengeful Windsor ancestor. Michele soon finds herself at the center of a rift over 120 years in the making, one whose resolution will have life-or-death consequences. Alexandra Monir's Timekeeper combines breathtaking romance with a tale of complex magic in a sequel that will have every reader believing in the transcendent power of love.

After reading the first book in this series, Timeless, I was pretty excited to find out how the love story of Michelle and Phillip would continue. Timeless left off on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I couldn’t wait to read the next book. And, in fact, I think that this book is actually better than Timeless. I felt like more happened in this book. It was a really good continuation to the series, and more complex than the first book. Timeless was focused completely on the romance between Michelle and Phillip developing, but I loved that Monir spiced it up a bit. Timekeeper had much more action, was faster paced, but still had really good writing. Pretty much the only thing I can say bad about it is I feel the ending, which should have been really thrilling, well, wasn’t. It was over way to fast, and it was kind of a too-easy solution to the problem, if you understand what I mean.
I really loved Michelle and Phillip in Timeless, and I really liked them again in this book. Even though Phillip was a little different, I still enjoyed him falling in love with Michelle (again). He was really sweet, handsome, and just a nice guy. I’m glad that Michelle wasn’t a weak character, because sometimes in books like these the main female character relies on the guy, but Michelle didn’t. She was feisty, smart, and strong, which I really appreciate.
This book was much more fast-paced and exciting than Timeless, and for that I like it a bit more than the first book. There was more going on, and the story line was a bit more complex. I can’t wait to see what Monir comes up with next!!
