A Hollywood stuntwoman dreaming of being a film director – that is who Juniper Warner is, or at least that’s who she thought she was until she receives a series of strange phone calls. Her grandmother, Jenny, who’s supposed to be dead a long time ago, is dying in a nearby hospital. Jenny warns Juniper about her own daughter, Juniper’s Aunt Regina. Apparently, Regina wants Juniper dead not only for her worldly inheritance but also for her out-of-this-world powers. With the help of her Grandma Jenny’s friends, Juniper discovers more about her past and witchy powers. But learning and harnessing them might be too late for her crazy aunt’s evil schemes. She has to go after her; she needs to time travel and she needs to do it now!

Jaclyn Belmay’s Time Fall is a gripping fantasy mixed with historical fiction and a bit of steamy romance. Time travel is a common concept in plots but the witchy element makes it more interesting. Told from Juniper’s point of view, the adventure unfolds in a strong, confident, and humorous voice. A thrilling feminist read, this book is a blessing to fans of bad-ass heroines. It gets off to a slow start before it crescendoes into the anticipated gritty action. The imagery paves the way to great world-building and the characters are also written well. Jaclyn Belmay uses the flashback technique a lot and she seems to be good at crafting the present while recalling the past. Overall, Time Fall is an enjoyable read.

The explanation of witching powers bestowed by aliens is fresh and somehow believable.
