Time-travelling Ashley knows when her husband will die. She’s determined to cheat Fate and save Alexander and her children, even if it brings the gates of time crashing down.

Well here we are at book four of The Time for Alexander series and what an adventure it has been so far. In a way I do think that the books would be best read in order although Jennifer Macaire does recap the important details from the previous books so new readers aren’t exactly going into the unknown. It has now been 10 years since Ashley found herself in the past and she is still well and truly tangled up in Alexander’s life!
I think the series has definitely found its stride, especially the previous book and this book just felt as if I was catching up with old friends. The story really seemed to flow at a great and easy pace with the author setting the scene to make the reader feel as if they are seeing the sights and experiencing it all for themselves. It took me no time at all to read this story and that was because I was completely wrapped up in the characters lives. I have come to love reading about Ashley, Alexander and Plexis seeing their daily life play out along with the dangers that come with being so close to Alexander.
There is more tension in this book as we see it edge ever closer to when Alexander is supposed to die. The big question is can Ashley stop what the history books all say happened? As ever there are complex relationships but it all adds to the story along with Ashley and Alexander still sharing a sizzling chemistry.
This story has snippets of history but most of all it is a fun look into the past as we get to see all of Alexander’s highs and lows. Storms Over Babylon has it all drama, romance and adventure!
