Time traveling Parminder - a.k.a. Pammi - must stop a power-hungry Able from the future from destroying the ancient city she visits, where Ables like her live freely. If she is unable to stop him, the city of Zanum vanishes forever, taking Pammi, and all other Ables with it.

I had trouble connecting with this one...
Had Jennifer Jill Araya not assured me that she liked this story, it would have been one of the few books to end up in my Did-Not-Finish, trash can, but I decided to keep going, and yeah it has a great ending. My problem with the book started with the story, never really getting started until what felt like the halfway point! I kept waiting for the meat and potatoes, but all I was getting was the parsley garnish! There was just so much world building and personnel introspection... and I'm a girl that Lives for action! I swear the book was half over before I started being engaged by the characters and story, and that's plain-dang-difficult to overlook !
Btw, Jennifer Jill Araya's narration was flawless (as always)... I just can't say the same for the story!
