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.

Better and better. Riveting tale.

Once again, a unique adventure in a different culture and time, with history, mystery, romance, warriors in raging battles, and a healthy dose of speculative fiction about time travel. I loved the contradictions and emotions depicted by characters with depth. Highly recommended.

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.

Great series!

This book series just gets better and better.

Loved it

Josie is very relatable to me, I would so freak out and not be able to cope with the circumstances she finds herself in. Carter is a total bad guy who you hope doesn't win the game he is playing. Can't wait to read book 3 !!!

Fantastic sequel to West- prepare to fall in love all over again!

Josie is struggling to adjust the best she can. She has come to the understanding that she is stuck where she is and now has to seek a life, dare I say normal... but how can it be normal when those around you are calling you Goddess and believe you fell from the sky... which she kind-a-did. Watching her struggle and dare to find a place in this harsh world is captivating. She definitely has grown from her time in the Old West. My heart was broken with her, and it was something to try and watch her heal from her lose of the first book. This book is so dang good, I am making sure not give anything away, because this book is so good!

Rough! Oh so wonderful
By Marsha Jeanne Thalleen (5.0 out of 5 stars) on November 5, 2017
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!
By Kindle Customer (3.0 out of 5 stars) on May 16, 2017
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.
