Professor Simon Cross and his assistant Elizabeth West were accidentally transported back in time to 1929. They were not sure how to return to 2029 but believed it had something to do with the watch and the eclipse. They posed as a married couple and took jobs at a speakeasy. She had been in love with him for quite some time. He had dreams of her death and was afraid to love her.
The professor’s specialty was the occult. A man by the name of King watched Elizabeth. Everyone was afraid of him. When he coerced her into having dinner with him she saw the true evil in him. He was possessed by a demon and he was a vampire.
It was interesting watching romance and love blossom between the Professor and Elizabeth. The interactions between them were perfection. While King was evil a twist at the end showed redemption. Secondary characters like Charlie, Dix, and Lester were well developed and likable. I always enjoy time travel stories but I’m not as fond of vampires. However, this was a nice mix. I also liked the way the author brought in a bit of the history to make 1929 more authentic. There were references to the stock market crash, prohibition and mobsters. All in all this was a pleasant read.
