For the first time in her life, Hope Walton has friends . . . and a (maybe) boyfriend. She’s a Viator, a member of a long line of time-traveling ancestors. When the Viators learn of a plan to steal a dangerous device from the inventor Nikola Tesla, only a race into the past can save the natural timeline from utter destruction. Navigating the glitterati of The Gilded Age in 1895 New York City, Hope and her crew will discover that high society can be as deadly as it is beautiful.

    *sees The Princess Bride gif and immediately adds the book to her TBR because I mean, THE PRINCESS BRIDE* I remember seeing something a while back about Into the Dim, but I never knew much about it. I’ll definitely investigating it now. This was so much fun, and glad you’re not in a closet somewhere, Krysti. XD

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Hahaha! Right?! Oh, I love that movie/book. You should definitely watch that book trailer too if you haven’t already. It’s so great!

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        Ahhhhh yes! That was the first one that I remembered seeing and I really have to go back and check out her rest. I keep meaning to but I’m the worst with Youtube. XD

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        I think that was the first one of hers that I watched too. At least it was the first one I watched knowing that she’d made it anyway. She’s so talented!

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        Me too! I know nothing about video editing, but I’m guessing there must be stock video sites you can get stuff from? IDK. It would be interesting to find out. I should ask her sometime…

      • bookprincessreviews says:

        Yes! I have to assume so as well. I have no clue. The only edit I’ve ever done is with my own stuff, and I never foudn anything like that. That would be cool, though.

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      It’s such a great trailer. Sarah from The YA Book Traveler seriously does the best trailers. I love her new one for Before She Ignites!
