"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire. Set in contemporary Paris and London, and the American colonies during the upheaval and unrest that exploded into the Revolutionary War, a sweeping story that braids together the past and present. On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life, free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply-held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood. Fast forward to contemporary London, where Marcus has fallen for Phoebe Taylor, a young employee at Sotheby's. She decides to become a vampire, too, and though the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable in the modern world than they were in the 18th century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever. A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities for change, Time's Convert will delight fans of the All Souls trilogy and all readers of magic, the supernatural, and romance"--… (més)

This book, much like the other three, was a marvel of woven historical threads. This book explored Marcus' past and Phoebe's becoming a vampire. It was such an interesting juxtaposition. Now I just need a Gallowglass novel!! DH, don't leave me hangin! ( )

If I didn't enjoy history so much, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed this book at all - holy history lessons, Batman! Also, I found the switching between 3rd-person POV and 1st-person POV quite disconcerting - but maybe that's just me.

I wouldn't recommend starting with this book if you haven't already read all 3 books in the All-Souls Trilogy. ( )

Picking this book up is like coming home. Truly, we get lots of character goodies in this. Diana and Matthew and their precocious kids, for one, but it's the whole Clermont clan that shines.

In particular, this novel is REALLY about Phoebe and Marcus. And the American Revolution. And the French Revolution.

And the best part is, I don't have to use much imagination. We get ALL of Marcus's history! And we get to see baby Phoebe as a new vamp. :)

My favorite parts are all in the past, however. Marcus had a troubled past and we get to see his start as a medic in the R. War, but probably most interesting was the French Revolution. What a nightmare.

But don't get me wrong, this book has a modern plot just as good as the past. You know, the fate of everything and all. :) Those kids are sooo cute! And bitey. :) ( )

It was nice to return the world of vampires and witches created by Deborah and see where people are 5 years later. You also get a lot of detail of what it's like to become one. I could've used a little bit more background on a couple of the characters because she assumes that you've read the rest of the series. ( )

Epígraf

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong,
gives it a superficial appearance of being right,
and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.
But the tumult soon subsides.
Time makes more converts than reason.

Een lange gewoonte van denken dat iets niet verkeerd is,
geeft het een oppervlakkige schijn van juistheid,
en brengt aanvankelijk een geweldige verontwaardiging teweeg ter
verdediging van wat men gewoon is.
Maar het tumult neemt snel af.
De tijd maakt meer bekeerlingen dan de rede.
