    1. Full ReviewSo, I stayed up last night reading this from beginning to end! I couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to happen the Hell was it all going to end???!!! Well, now I know how it ends. And I'm left feeling unsure if I like it or not, to be honest. I've been thinking about this all day, but I'm still not sure. It picked up right where the second book left off, with Kate returning from 1938 Georgia and receiving a note from the "Fifth Column," a faction of Cyrists within the c [...]

    3. 4.25 ★ Audiobook⎮ I'll say upfront that this installment was not my favorite in the trilogy, but I still overwhelmingly recommend it. At first glance, this could seem like your typical YA "teenage girl saves the world" trope, with a love triangle thrown in for good measure. But the devil is in the details, or in this case, the deliciousness is in the details, because that's what makes this series stand out among all of the other time travel tales. It's not so much about what the author does, [...]

    4. I have read all the books in this series, and there were still times while I was reading the book that I wondered where in time and place the story took place, and how things had shifted so drastically.Physically, there are 4 major time shifts, and we learn much more about what causes a time stream. There's string theory and then there's the ultimate every decision creates a new parallel universe, and in this universe, the author has married the two. It created major issues deciding what was fro [...]

    5. I have been completely obsessed with all things Chronos Files ever since I first read Timebound right after Skyscape released it. I have devoured each novella and book as soon as I could and have lost many hours of sleep staying up until the wee hours with the old "just one more chapter" scenario. Time's Divide starts off exactly where Time's Edge ends with a surprise visit from a 5th Column member in an altered timeline, thanks to Kate's tireless efforts to save Julia Morelle Waters' parents in [...]

    6. I'm not often so hooked on a series that it keeps me up way late. I heard about Rysa Walker's CHRONOS files series in August and devoured the first two books back-to-back. I really didn't want to wait for book 3. Thankfully, I got a review copy from the author to get a sneak peek. I think she pulled off the ending that was intense, satisfying, and totally unpredictable. I love that this series kept me guessing and made my head spin with all the time-travel nuances. It's a Virtus story in that th [...]

    7. What a terrific end to Kate’s fantastic adventure through time. I give this book five out of five star for its breakneck pace, jumping me back to interesting moments in American history and forward to a fascinating future. My mind bent with ideas of alternate timelines, and things capable of remaining constant when a change rocks the course of events in the past. Really this book earns every star just for tying up what felt like a million loose ends. What I liked:1) The stakes are high in this [...]

    8. I just finished an ARC from Netgally and I feel like I felt when Lost concluded. I don't care if you loved Lost or hated Lost - that ending had to make even the most ardent hater do a little "aww" I happened to have loved Lost so I did a little more than go "aww." I flat out bawled and mourned my friends Jack, Kate, and Hurley for, like, weeks. I also loved this series. Time Travel, religion used to manipulate the masses, the threat of mass extinction, and a really great set of characters (I jus [...]

    9. I am numb. This was one of those books. The ones that make me numb from all the FEELINGS.I might write a more in-depth review later, but right now all I can do is sit here and be emotional.

    10. I feel this book was a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't pin it as 'bad' but I think there was a lot of lost potential. The timelines were off the chart complicated. I mean, I love time travel I watch Doctor Who and I've read other time-traveling novels that are guaranteed to raise a few eyebrows with their explanations, but this book is just too damn complicated. Even the characters confuse themselves when they're trying to sum things up. Not even a 'Timey-Wimey-Wibbly-Wob [...]

    11. I finished this book at 3:30 a.m. and proceeded to lie awake for almost an hour thinking about time travel. Also, about how I had grown attached to the characters much more than I thought previously. While this final book in the Chronos Files trilogy is certainly YA, and that may not be for everyone, Walker has done an excellent job of cultivating a fictional world that feels real. She also has written a lead female character for a YA trilogy that I didn't end up hating by the end of the third b [...]

    12. To use the author's words, this third book was only slight better than "a tangled mass of wet spaghetti". Way too many time jumps - a lot that didn't mean much. Many characters that didn't make sense and shouldn't have been there. The ending is quite unsatisfying, resolves very little and the romance was a fizzle. Major disappointment since the first book was good.

    13. Final installment of the Chronos Files trilogy and it certainly ends with a bang (even though 100 pages less would have been a louder bang). I liked it, but I don't claim to be able to follow some of the time travel conundrums. The use of religion to control the population and exercise power comes out the most for me in this book and I think it adds a layer of complexity and depth. I like Walker's writing style and the snappy dialogues.

    14. Great ending to the Chronos Files series!!! It was very well written, funny and clever, and there was almost nothing predictable about it, which I appreciate. The epilogue was a little confusing, and it seemed to drag at points in the story, but those points were very few. Excellent book!

    15. I really enjoyed this. I loved the first two books and was eagerly awaiting the conclusion to find out how it all would end. At times I was a bit confused, as even the characters themselves tended to get confused, with all the time travel logistics so I tended to shrug off my misunderstandings like Kate did and not think too much into it, but besides that this was quick paced and full of adventure and I devoured it in 3 days. I loved Kate, have from the beginning. She was strong and confident ev [...]

    16. Featured in a "Series Salute" on Intellectual Recreation.I love a good time travel novel, andRysa Walker'sChronos Files are vying for a spot on the top of my metaphorical "favorite time travel series ever" list. I feel like this series is a bit of a hidden gem. I want more people to read it, so they can love it too!With my great affection forTime's Edge, the second in the series, I putTime's Divide at the top of my must-read immediately list. InTime's Divide Kate and the gang race to stop Saul f [...]

    17. What an end to an amazing series! This is time travel craziness and I loved it! Part of what I love about this series is the character development. Kate, Trey, Prudence, and Kiernan are so fleshed-out and realistic that you almost believe they are real. They are flawed, sometimes difficult or annoying, and sometimes incredibly noble and brave, especially Prudence. I also love that Walker truly grasps the ideas and paradoxes of time travel. In fact, that might seem a detriment to the series for s [...]

    18. So I’ve been waiting for the finale to the Chronos Files series since I read the first book (Timebound) back in 2012 and the sequel (Time’s Edge) in 2014. So when Time’s Divide came out this past fall, I was excited and sad- I have been in love with this series for over three years and it was about to come to an end. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for it to end or ready to see where Rysa Walker was going to take the series. I read this book in one weekend- nervously turning each page to se [...]

    19. sooooooo, this book. i must admit, i nearly lost interest at 20% - not quite sure why that happened, either because the plot was chaotic or because too much time has passed since i've read the previous booksanyway, i can't say i'm completely satisfied. i really love time travelling stories but they have this problem of non-linear plot which is sometimes so hard to follow. these particular series has hundreds of time jumps performed by more than 10 characters. timeline was changed many times and [...]

    20. So I read through this series of books pretty quickly, because time travel excites me! The first book was great, laying a solid foundation for the series. In the second book I felt like I was getting to know the characters a little better, even though I really didn't see the point in some of them. I expected the third book to kind of tie everything together and give me like a satisfying ending. But it didn't.Time's Divide was a mess. It went back on all the laws and rules of time travel it had s [...]

    21. The end was unexpected and, I'm not gonna lie, left me grieving a little, but it was quite an exciting journey. If you're a time travel fan, you'll love this one. My favorite part was the glimpse of the future. I want one of those machines that scans your body and makes perfectly fitting clothes and checks out what's wrong with you and gives you quick fix drinks. That would be sweet.

    22. Who ever said that time travel gives you a headache was pretty much right. Things get kinda complicated and I commend the author in keeping it all straight. This is a time travel story in every sense of the word and keeps you guessing to how it’s all going to turn out. Don’t overthink it, just enjoy!

    23. I'm kind of sick of young Kate and her selfishness. This series started strong but ended up getting annoying and could have been shorter for sure. It's a pity because there was a lot of potential but it just didn't meet my expectation. The audio narrator did an excellent job though.

    24. Great wrap up Chronos Files series! It was very well written, funny and clever, and there was almost nothing predictable about it. The epilogue was a little confusing, and it seemed to drag at points in the story, but those points were very few. Excellent book! I loved the characters, especially Kate and Kiernan. (view spoiler)[ I would have liked Kate and Kiernan to end up together and felt a little cheated when he and Other-Kate had a life.but in the end, both Kate and Kiernan got what they wa [...]

    25. Wow, what a ride! From the 1800s to the far-fetched future and back, I don't know how Walker keeps all the timelines and their variations straight in her head. She gives us a complex, in-depth, thrilling and awesome story?I couldn't wait to see how this story was going to end and wanted to see how Walker could possibly tie up so many loose ends. And she did! I loved the complications and uncertainty she created. Loved her use of history, religion and politics. One of my favorite time travel tril [...]

    26. “If your faith is so shaky that it can be undermined by books that challenge it, then something is rotten at the core.”-Rysa WalkerThe CHRONOS Files final installment, Time’s Divide, did not disappoint. After reading Rysa Walker‘s most recent novella, Time’s Mirror, I was beginning to wonder how, in one book, could Walker even begin to conclude this well-told story. But, not only did she manage it, she knocked it out of the park.In Time’s Divide, we find Kate is still battling her [...]

    27. Wonderful conclusion to Rysa Walker’s Chronos Files!I greatly enjoyed this fast-paced page-turning conclusion just as much as the rest of the series; it continues to have a fantastic plot, meaningful character development, and comedy in all the right places. So glad Walker has created and shared such an entertaining tale!Much was at stake for Kate at this point in the story; with the Cyrists’ plan for catastrophic global change, Kate had to act quickly. It’s amazing how many adventures occ [...]

    28. I have been completely obsessed with all things Chronos Files ever since I first read Timebound right after Skyscape released it. I have devoured each novella and book as soon as I could and have lost many hours of sleep staying up until the wee hours with the old "just one more chapter" scenario. Time's Divide starts off exactly where Time's Edge ends with a surprise visit from a 5th Column member in an altered timeline, thanks to Kate's tireless efforts to save Julia Morelle Waters' parents in [...]

    29. I was SO excited yesterday morning when Ms Walker posted that the final book in the Chronos trilogy was available at Net Galley. I devoured this last (weep) story of Kate with as much love as I did the first.First thing first. This is definitely a series that must be read in sequence or you will be completely lost and utterly confused. I would also strongly suggest you read books 1, 1.5 and 2 again before reading this last book. It was nice to have the details straight in my head!On to the actua [...]

    30. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Where to begin? To be honest I'm pretty disappointed with well with the entire way this series is wrapped up. Not really a fan of spoilers but am having a hard time figuring out how to explain without any I'll try my best. So this being a time travel series you expect a certain amount of confusion. The first two books were definitely confusing, but I never felt completely out of the loop. I always ha [...]
