Blurb from goodreads

With Weston’s self-imposed forty-eight hour deadline having already lapsed, Sophie’s patience is pushed to the max—especially with her realization that his concern is not for his own well-being, but for hers.

Just when they embrace a reconnection, she’ll learn that her greatest threat is not necessarily something that might happen in the future, but something that’s happening… right now. And this time, Sophie and Wes will need the help of more than one person to fix it—even if it means giving up his secret.

With time forever moving, and the dark cloud at its lowest, the third book in the Pace Series stays true to its signature grace and determination as Sophie and Weston take the biggest detour so far.


The Pace #1

Wes is not immortal and he is of this world. But, aging is not part of his existence, and eighteen-year-old Sophie Slone is determined to find out why. In doing so, she could also uncover something about her own life expectancy that she may not want to know. Suddenly, immortality will mean everything and nothing all at the same time.


The Broken Lake #2

In the aftermath of Sophie’s ordeal, Weston will make some uncharacteristic decisions to distance himself from the past in an attempt to change the future.
But, while venturing into the improbable, the present sneaks up in a chilling way that will lead to Wes’ unexpected submission. Suddenly, Sophie will find herself watching as both his immortal secret and his own existence are threatened.

My Review

It is hard to write a review when you are still on a high after reading such a great book, And all you want to do is read the next one to find out what will happen next, That to mean makes a great read.

It feels like forever that I have been waiting for this book to be released.  I got such a surprise when I checked on Amazon and found that it had been realised on Kindle earlier than on paperback so I had to buy it straight away and read it.

I loved the first two in the series and at the end of  The Broken Lake it was left with such a cliff hanger With Wes being taken  that I have been on tender hooks waiting for  The Iron Quill  to be released.

A new twist to this book,  you are not only in the mind of Sophie but the mind of Dr Carter aswell,  which means you get to know what happens to Wes  (I though made a nice change to other books were you don’t know were you favourite characters).  We learn a lot about Dr Carter and his work,   he turns out to be a very significant character

I had no idea what was going to happen and it was all written so well, this did have a few surprises in it and the fact that Wes and Sophie are growing together made this a really sweet love story. Nothing is ever simple for these two but we have learned this from the last two books.

I was not disappointed at all. After reading this book I loved Wes and Sophie even more. there characters went through a bit of a rollercoaster  with events happening to both of them.

I was sad to read that    The hour of Dreams #4  will be the last in the   will be released in 2012
