Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing

Thoughts

Into the Dim is really interesting so far! I am loving the Scottish aspects and the dialect. I’m very excited for the secret society to be introduced as well.

Book Quotes: Into the DIm

“Feeling as though I’d been buffeted about by a tiny, blue tornado, I whispered to the now-empty room. ‘But why would she lie to us?'”

About Janet B. Taylor

Janet B. Taylor

Janet Taylor lives in such a small town in Arkansas that if you happen to sneeze when you pass by, you'll totally miss it. (Cause, you know, you can't sneeze with your eyes open. For real--try it--it's impossible)

Her first novel, INTO THE DIM, (which debuted 3/1/2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is about a 16 year old girl who travels through time. Totally on purpose and stuff.

Her second book, SPARKS OF LIGHT (HMH, 8/1/2017) is the sequel, and continues three months after INTO THE DIM leaves off.

She's a reader/fan first and a writer second. She lives with her fantastic husband, two hilarious sons, and Dorda the diabetic dog who won't win any beauty contests, but has a "nice personality".

    The premise of this book sounds so interesting! I love that there’s some travelling into the past. I hope that part and the culture in those time periods get built up and developed nicely. Lovely teasers too!

    I think 2016 is the year of time travel or maybe I’e just come accross many time travelling books?? IDK but once again this synopsis has really drawn me in and I love the little teaser!

  3. Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books says:

    I just finished this one and I ended up enjoying it a lot! It does start out a bit slow and it is a bit long, but it’s still very interesting. But then it picks up and I kind of loved it. The world building with London in 1154 was amazing. I really want to read the sequel!
