    I've said this countless times but I really do hate cliffhangers! WHY DO AUTHORS ALWAYS DO THIS TO ME?I refuse to accept cliffhangers anymore! Also, this sequel was better than I expected as well! I'm so happy I haven't hit the terrible two's lately or read super bad books this week alone. Overall, I really loved this book. It gives you a whole bunch of stuff, like: deception, corruption, time travelling, betrayals, truths and like I said A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF.Amanda/Iris is still a member of t [...]

    Ahhhat ending!!! Blackout by Meredith McCardle is the second book in the Annum Guard series and I have been waiting (a bit impatiently) for this book to come out. Not only because I love time-travel books but because the mystery of what is going to happen next with these characters always keeps me turning the pages. Keep in mind that if you haven’t read book one, this review might mention some things that you might not want to know yet.Amanda Obermann is Iris and she still a member of the Annu [...]

    Band 1 der Zeitenspringer Saga fand ich schon sehr überzeugend, so wollte ich auch gleich Band 2 Lesen. Besonders da Band 1 sehr interessant geendet hat und mich nicht völlig überzeugen konnte, der letzte Funke hat gefehlt.Das Cover von Band 2 ist seinem Vorgänger sehr ähnlich, nur die Farbe wurde geändert. Es wirkt immer noch edel und erinnert mich nicht gleich an einen Zeitreiseroman. Doch finde ich es sehr stilvoll und die Farbe gefällt mir gut. Die Gestaltung von innen ist auch anspre [...]

    3.5 stars. The sequel to The Eighth Guardian is fast paced and kept me quickly turning pages from start to finish. I wanted to figure out what was going on with the government and the Annum Guard, and find out the identity of XP as much as Iris did. While the first book focused more on real historical events, adding in the internal Guard intrigue as the book progressed, this book was mostly focused on the later with historical events as backdrops. It was still fun to travel to different places a [...]

    Mit “Die Farbe der Zukunft” geht die spannende Zeitenspringer-Saga von Meredith McCardle endlich weiter – nachdem ich von “Die achte Wächterin” bereits begeistert war, freute ich mich nun ungemein auf die Fortsetzung.Seit den Ereignissen im letzten Band hat sich innerhalb der Annum Guard einiges getan: Iris’ Freund Abe hat sich nun den Zeitenspringern angeschlossen und die Annum Guard hat eine neue Vorgesetzte – nicht Red, welcher eigentlich genau dafür ausgebildet wurde, sondern [...]

    Blackout is the sequel to The Eighth Guardian, it is a fast paced novel that I enjoyed reading beginning to the end. Amanda Obermann is a member of a government organization called the Annum Guard. Later, she discovers a "blackout" squad is killing the guardians who get in the way of a corrupted force that is selling out both the Annum Guard's missions and guardian lives.Blackout felt more action and deception than character development. However, there was more progression in character developme [...]

    This book probably need to be read quite close to the 1st as there is no real recap from it and it just dives right on in there so it was slightly confusing for me, luckily I was reading as a buddy read so we were able to remind ourselves on things/people.The colours got quite confusing too at the beginning however by the time I had got a third into the book I was hooked again.I can't wait until the 3rd book to find out what the hell went on and how Iris is going to be able to fix this mess she [...]

    Ein überaus spannender und gelungener 2. Teildie Autorin: Meredith McCardle studierte Journalismus und Theater, bevor sie – in einem Anflug praktischen Denkens – erkannte, dass Journalismus eigentlich nicht ihr Ding und Theater nicht mehr als ein Hobby für sie war. Danach machte sie ihren rechtswissenschaftlichen Abschluss in Boston und arbeitete sieben Jahre lang tagsüber als Anwältin, während sie nachts ihrer Leidenschaft als Schriftstellerin nachging. Nach der Geburt ihrer ersten Toc [...]

    I wish I had known it was a cliffhanger, but I should have guessed. When do these series ever come in any less than three books.This time around things were a bit too chaotic for me. I liked the obnoxious Ms. Bonner as an antagonist and it was good to see more of Abe, I guess. The story, however, just spiraled out of control.

    Wenn man Mitglied einer geheimen Zeitreise-Organisation ist, hat man sicherlich kein ruhiges Leben. Doch seit Annum Guard eine neue Chefin hat, steht Amanda, Codename Iris, nonstop unter Stress. Zum Glück hat sie ihren Freund Abe an ihrer Seite! Doch als plötzlich mehrere Zeitenspringer spurlos verschwinden, macht Iris eine schreckliche Entdeckung: Eine Einheit namens »Blackout« versucht jeden auszuschalten, der sich XP in den Weg stellt, einer ominösen korrupten Macht innerhalb der eigenen [...]

    Blackout, the second book in the Annum Guard series, was a phenomenal sequel that is a must read for fans of the first book, The Eighth Guardian. It's no secret how much I adored The Eighth Guardian, and I was hoping with everything I had that this book wouldn't disappoint as some sequels do. Sometimes you build up the story so much in your mind that by the time the next book comes out, it is lackluster. Well, have no fear because Ms. McCardle has crafted an imaginative, amazing sequel that will [...]

    Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - BuchseeleRezensionsexemplar, zur Verfügung gestellt vom Verlag im Austausch für eine ehrliche Rezension ♥Meredith McCardles Serie „Die Zeitspringer-Saga“ ist eine dieser Serien, bei denen ich mich beim Erscheinen des ersten Bandes einfach nicht mehr daran erinnern kann, was in Band 1 passiert ist. Also war so ziemlich alles, was ich noch wusste, als ich „Die Farbe der Zukunft“ angefangen habe, dass es hier um eine [...]

    Nach dem fulminanten Auftakt einer neuen Zeitreise-Serie, blieb der zweite Band der Reihe nicht lange vor mit verschont. Und es wurde auch keine Zeit und Mühe gespart, sondern direkt dort weitergemacht, wo beim 1. Band aufgehört wurde. Doch eine neue Bedrohung bahnt sich an. "Blackout" heißt die unbekannte Mission von unbekannter Herkunft. Das einzige, was auffällt: Es verschwinden Mitglieder von Annum Guard.Fesselnd wie immer, wird untersucht, diskutiert, beobachtet und viel durch die Zeit [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchanged for a honest review. In no way did the author or publishing company influence my review. For all my reviews, see my blog fashion-by-the-book.tumblr17 year old Amanda, (code name Iris) is part of a secret government organization of time travelers, called The Annum Guard. In this second book of the series, Amanda/Iris is dealing with changes in Annum Guard, as well as the danger that comes when fellow team members start to disappear on missions.The char [...]

    I received this ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This is the second in the series, and readers should start with The Eighth Guardian or they will be lost. Blackout begins where the first book leaves off. The corruption in the Annum Guard has resulted in new security protocols and a new leader, but Amanda knows that the root of the evil hasn't been identified and makes it her mission to get to XP before he/she/it gets to her. The writer has to set up a whole n [...]

    3.5 stars____________With the way The Eighth Guardian ended, I couldn't wait to start Blackout. The best way to read a series is back to back. Right? Everything is fresh. However, I did not enjoy the sequel as much as I enjoyed the first book. I think it's the fact that I was expecting to be blown away. Until, 75% in is when things started to pick up for me. The ending was all worth it though! It was jaw-dropping. I did not expect such thing to happen. And I need the third book NOW.The Eighth Gu [...]


    Sine

    Fazit:Auch der zweite Teil war sehr spannend und das bis zum Schluss und das Ende war einfach nur sprachlos. Ich will einfach nur noch Teil 3 lesen. Ich bin super gespannt und glaube, dass es genauso spannend weitergeht. Bewertung:Das ist der zweite Teil der Reihe.Und weiter geht es mit der ganzen Verschwörung, die ja ganz schön verworren ist. Amanda muss erstmal die einzelnen Daten zusammensammeln und dann verschwinden auch noch nach und nach Leute von Annum Guard. Und dann ist da noch die ne [...]

    A great story continues. You will be waiting on the next installment of the Annum Guard series. This has a great balance of everything that makes a great book: action, intrigue, espionage, drama, and a little romance for good measure. The time travel is well thought out and our heroes are relatable and easy to identify with emotionally. The main plot of good vs. Evil contains many subplots that are surprising twists. This work will be enjoed by young and old alike as our young adults are faced w [...]

    This book was amazinggggg!!!! From the beginning I was hooked in and I couldn't put the book down. I even skipped lunch to read this book. The ending was very shocking and it was very sad but, well thats just that. This is the second book to the series and I do recommend reading the first one so that you can understand the second one.


    Paula HGZ

    MEH, the plot got slightly better, Iris got slightly worse (she now thinks she can save the world).just, MEHHH.
