Blog Tour: Loving in Time by A E Kirk

I received a copy of Loving in Time in exchange for my review.

Helen thought she was just a normal girl, until seven mysterious boys showed up in her life, triggering her memories of being Helen of Sparta. As Helen learns more about her past life, and about her lives and loves, she realises that she must make a difficult decision. She has to choose whether to return to the time of the Trojan war and break the cycle that has the boys continually searching for Helen throughout time, or she can reject them once more. But things are never simple and Helen's soul and heart are pulling her in different directions. Troy is her soulmate, the person her soul yearns for, and yet she has feelings for Gus that she doesn't feel for anyone else...even Troy.

 Firstly I would like to just say that the cover for Loving in Time is stunning, not too sure it is what I would pick to represent the story, but it certainly catches the eye.

I loved the way that Loving in Time took Greek mythology and twisted it so that it was something new, there were definite differences between the Iliad and the story in this case. The most notable being that Troy was a person not a place, and the role of Paris in the whole thing was very different.

I also thought that it was really interesting the comparison that was shown between soul mates and love. I'll admit that despite knowing from pretty early on that Troy was Helen's soul mate, I found myself actually routing for Helen and Gus to end up together.

This was certainly interesting, and a different take on the story that many know, but well worth a look at.
