East (History Interrupted Book 2)

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 thirteenth century Mongolia.

Rough! Oh so wonderful
By Marsha Jeanne Thalleen (5.0 out of 5 stars) on June 5, 2015
East is the second book in the History Interrupted series by Lizzy Ford, and that series title takes on a whole new meaning in this book. Josie is finally where she feels like she knows who she is and where she belongs. She has given up on returning home and opened her heart to a new home and a new family...but then the lives unravel. This is a book of many strong characters, where honor is the word of the day. Very well done, but no HEA yet.

Great book but series left unfinished! Extremely disappointing!

No, No, NO! In truth, I loved both West and East. However, she stops the series after this book and it is completely open-ended! It's as if a third novel must be written but she got bored with it (or didn't get enough $) and decided not to finish the series. As both books were fantastic, her decision not to finish the series was deeply disappointing.

Wow! Just wow. After reading this I went back to read West. I am so looking forward to the rest, but unfortunately it will be awhile till they come out. Sigh.....

An addicting read, hard to put down once started.

Anxiously Awaiting Book 3
By H.A.Lynn (5.0 out of 5 stars) on August 21, 2015
Lizzy Ford has a way of forcing you to become emotionally involved with her characters, and then she throws a curve ball, smacking you in the face.Josie continues to be one of my favorite female characters because it's really easy to relate to her and how she responds to certain situations. In this story, she really steps up and begins to make her own decisions since she is not in communication with Carter currently.Speaking of Carter... WHERE IS HE? What in the world is going on?I feel like this was definitely a "filler" story to help build up characters and make a few more connections, but it didn't really answer any of the questions that West left me with. I'm totally okay with this though because Lizzy pulled it off and I love it!If there is one person I could sit down with and talk to about her writing technique and process, it would be Lizzy. I'd love to see how she organizes her thoughts and outlines for her book series. For now, I'll continue to try to channel her daily as I attempt to motivate myself to write and wait impatiently for the next release of this series!Find my review on lynnook.weebly.com

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? If you read West then you will want to read this book but you will not see what is coming. This was an amazing book BUT Lizzy Ford sure knows how to get us to come back for more. This book starts off where West ended and boy does it take you on a roller cost. SO not only does Josie get sent back in time to the Mongol era but she also gets put in cryostasis. When she wakes up she has no idea where she is much less when. Not only that but she has no idea who to trust or what she is "suppose" to be doing there. As the story moves along we get to see more of Josie's character and we get pulled on an emotional ride with her. I read this book in one sitting and loved it! The ending left me with so many questions and I hope that Lizzy Ford brings some of the characters from East into the next novel North. I want to know Carter's endgame and what is going to happen to Josie in the end.I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

OMG! Keep 'em coming!!

After West I anxiously awaited this one- We were left wondering what would become of Josie. If you thought Wesr was good- It has nothing on East. This time Josie finds herself in the Kahn Era. In a world filled with strange customs and ways, she must find a way to fit in. When some stuff goes down she finds herself trapped with no where to go and no one to turn to. Josie is unsure of her mission here and doesn't trust anyone around her. Becoming frustrated and feeling like she don't belong, she tries and tries to figure out her purpose, her way to be useful. We meet some very interesting characters and the story kept me entranced. Batu is a great honorable warrior, who's sole purpose is to protect the goddess Moonbeam. He is strong and a little goofy- but honest to a fault and I fell in love with him. This series is filled with mystery and suspense- great characters and interesting times and places. If you are looking for a journey, you will find it in this series. Canot wait for North!!
