Book three of The Chalcedony Chronicles, a paranormal/time travel romance series.
Mari's past and present are all mixed together. To start, she finds herself trapped in the past while her friends from the past are now all in the future. She wants to go home, but Logan Jones has different plans - which include Mari. He might say he wants her, but soon she realizes that there's something more behind it. To save everyone in the future, Mari strikes a deal. She must give up Seth and agree to date Logan. In return, he'll teach her to how to help her friends and family. Only, letting go of Seth, and falling for Logan aren't easy feats. If Mari can't figure out how to do so, she might lose everyone she loves.
love how she writes. love her books. I feel like I am in side the story
Aventurine is the third installment of the Chalcedony Chronicles Series by B. Kristin McMichael, where time travel and the adventure of a lifetime is just a blink of an eye away! After having read books one and two, where the action had a steady pace and the budding romance between Mari and Seth began and blossomed, I believe this book pales in comparison. I did enjoy this book, but the delivery was at a snails pace. The teenage angst, and how Logan pulled Mari along so damn slow was painful at times. I honestly believe this series could have done with one less book in it! The amount of information that was released could have been summed up in a few chapters in one of the other books.
The story begins where the last book left off. Mari gets stuck in the past while her boyfriend Seth and her mother go on into the future. Logan appears to late to help, like he was supposed to, and ends up being the one Mari was set up to marry, (in the past). After we get through the explanation of that whole thing, we are introduced to a new character, Ky, like Ty but with a K. The funny thing about this dudes name is the similarity to Ty. There is a Ty in this story and he is her best friend, and at some point she says “my Ty”, get it, haha!! I obviously went delirious during the story because of the ridiculousness of the naive Mari. Her young and naive self questioned EVERYTHING all the time throughout the entire book! If it wasn't for loving the previous books, and NEEDING to know how this story ends, I would have had a really hard time finishing it! Thank the stars above that the ending produced a significant change in the story that propels it forward! I am so looking forward (now) to listening to the fourth book, Chrysocolla.
Hollie Jackson once again narrates for McMichael. I have truly enjoyed her voice from day one! She is doing an excellent job, and I hope she continues to deliver a great performance with this series.

B. KRISTIN MCMICHAEL DID IT AGAIN! I love this Series! she always leaves me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book!! HURRY PLEASE WITH THE NEXT ONE!! SO WORTH A CREDIT!!
Absolutely fantastic story! Author B Kristin McMichael has outdone herself again. This series is written beautifully. There's so much intrigue, adventures, and twists and turns throughout the entire story. The first two books were enjoyable and I couldn't wait to see what Logan's plans would be. I now wish the fourth story was available NOW on Audible. If you must haven't read or listened to this series then it's a MUST. Just make sure you read or listen to them in order.
Narrator Hollie Jackson did another superb job with her performance of Aventurine. She breathed life into this story and left me feeling like I was inside the story. Hollie has no trouble with distinguishing each characters accents and voices. She kept me glued to this story from start to finish. A perfect 5 star rating!
