Review: Shadow of time: The Lost Years by Jen Minkman

Shadow of Time: The Lost Years
The Americas, 1534.
A young Navajo man goes on a vision quest to commune with the spirits and find out what his life path should be. Little does he know that his meeting with the Bear, his spirit guide, will change him for good and turn his life upside down. In fact, life has more years in store for him than he could have ever imagined...

This is a companion novella to Shadow of Time. Do not read if you haven't read the previous book!

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

I loved Shadow of Time with its mix of romance, paranormal and Navajo history. It just all came together to bring us a wonderful reading experience. One of the things that I loved about it was the dream sequence that allowed us to see Josh's past lives. However, it turns out that the lives that appeared in Shadow of Time where not all of Josh's past lives and this is where this book comes in.

I can understand why Minkam would be devastated to leave these out, after she had spent so much time not just 'making it all up' but actually researching it and providing so much detail, to then have it cut from the final edit. I am grateful that she has since put these past lives together and given us the chance to discover more of Josh and his past.

It has been almost 2 years since I read Shadow Of Time, so perhaps I haven't had the full reading pleasure that would come from reading this book alongside Shadow of Time, or shortly after.
