Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing.

Into The Dim is a fun and action packed time travel book that will definitely keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed the time travel aspect of this novel!!
This beauty caught my attention from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down till the very end. I adore how determined Hope is. Hope is also a bit awkward, which I actually like, because it makes her pretty relatable and fun to read about. I also just adore the romance between Hope and Bran. Although, I felt like the love was a bit insta-love–it’s still super cute reading about them!!
I can’t wait to read the sequel! The ending of Into The Dim isn’t too much of a cliffhanger but I definitely want to read more to find out what happens next! Be sure to add this to your TBR if you are looking for a book with a gorgeous setting and an adventurous plot!
