Time's Divide (The Chronos Files Book 3) Kindle Edition
The Cyrists are swiftly moving into position to begin the Culling, and Kate’s options are dwindling. With each jump to the past or the future, Kate may trigger a new timeline shift. Worse, the loyalties of those around her—including the allegiances of Kiernan and the Fifth Column, the shadowy group working with Kate—are increasingly unclear.
Kate will risk everything, including her life, to prevent the future her grandfather and the Cyrists have planned. But, when time runs out, it may take an even bigger sacrifice to protect the people she loves.
About the Author
Rysa Walker is the author of the runaway hit Timebound, which was the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Grand Prize winner, its sequel Time’s Edge, and the novella Time’s Echo. Walker grew up on a cattle ranch in the South, where her entertainment options included talking to cows and reading books. On the rare occasion that she gained control of the television, she watched Star Trek and imagined living in the future, on distant planets, or at least in a town big enough to have a stoplight. She now lives in North Carolina with her husband, two sons, and their golden retriever, Lucy.

This is going to be a difficult review to write. I absolutely loved the idea of the Chronos story. However, I was left disappointed and a bit upset with the ending of this book. I feel like I have been constantly let down with the history of Kiernan and Kate's romance. You start off reading the first book and when Kate touches the key, she sees Kiernan in a field (I believe she described him as looking upset) and then they are kissing. Then she sees him on the subway train and he kisses her while describing his touch as being somewhat electrifying. If I were Kate, I would be obsessed with finding out who he was and the details of our relationship. If a beautiful stranger kissed me and said that it wasn't our first kiss, I would want to know all about when our first kiss was. Therefore, I waited through the books 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3 hoping to hear about that history. It never happens. Instead Trey is the love interest which I agree with other reviewers that it is a very immature and superficial. I could have done without Trey completely because their relationship never had any depth. I thought he was kind and sweet, but he was really lacking in vibrancy. Kiernan was by far the most interesting character, and for some reason that makes no sense to me, Kate was really mean to him. Why on earth was she always so mean to him? Especially after she spent the day with young Kiernan, who was by far the most adorable character. Then I just don't understand all the scenes where she did kiss Kiernan. It wasn't right to be constantly leading him on. I still don't understand why it ended the way that it did. I would have liked to have no Trey in the story, but I think other Kate would be interesting to keep. It could have been a love battle between old Kate, current Kate, and Kiernan. I also don't understand why Kiernan couldn't have stayed in the future like Simon did. If there would be another novella, say a 0.5, describing other Kate and Kiernan's relationship that covers their first kiss and the reason for why Kiernan was upset in that field, then I would have some closure and a new outlook on the series.
The last installment dragged on forever. I feel like this series honestly could have been one large book, easy. This book was mostly logistics:Kate is going here while this person goes there. And oh, wait, we need to go here at this time and jump in at this time and yada yada. It was very frustrating to deal with all that instead of actual plot.
Seriously, Kate doesn't even get to confront Saul, the bad guy of the entire series??? Seems lazy. The reader deals with how evil and sadistic he is through three books to come to find him like that? Kate never even gets to speak to him. Ridiculous. The ending was a little anti-climactic as well. Side note: I lost count of how many times Kate said she wanted to flip somebody (use her much talked about martial arts skills), but I didn't lose count of how many times she actually did: zero. It was like the martial arts stuff was thrown in there for filler because she never used those skills, she always had to get saved by somebody else. Not a fan.
Overall the series was ok, but as far as the end of a trilogy, not satisfied at all.

Rysa writes with humour and perfect characterisation. With a tight band of actors from her imagination she has created a truly memorable universe. Thank God for small town childhoods.....
Overall though, a highly enjoyable trilogy if you like time travel stories, and I absolutely adore them.
How the heck you got it all right I will never know.
Read this if you can everybody
