1. They are super cool dystopian books without all of the tropes.
How many of you ended a dystopian series feeling depressed? I know that The Hunger Games movies (no, I haven't read the books yet) sure left me depressed. The Out of Time Trilogy is different. It's about finding Shalom (peace) even in the hardest circumstance. Even though A Time to Die has a morbid-sounding name, it's really a story of hope!
They are also dystopian books that don't revolve around the heroine and her dark and brooding boyfriend. Romance has a part in these books, but a. he isn't dark and brooding, b. they don't fall in love instantly, and c. it isn't the main focus of the story.
Also, a society obsessed with when they are going to die is definitely unique.
2. Solomon Hawke. (A.K.A. Perfect human being.)
All of the characters are amazing, but Solomon Hawke is one of the best, just so you know.
Parvin is also great! She's basically me. Nadine does such a good job in writing it that you start to think like the character. You view the storyworld through her eyes, instead of having your own filter there too.
3. You won't be able to put the books down.During school two years ago, we watched Mockingjay pt. 1. (I know, I used to go to a very unproductive school.) And I read A Time to Die while the other people watched it. The music actually set a perfect tone to the book. (Also, I had not seen Catching Fire yet because the first movie freaked me out.) Message to those who have read this book in white: I was reading the part where Parvin gets her job in Ivanhoe.
Another school story: I read most of A Time to Speak in one day at school. I hope I didn't freak the teacher out with my feels and Intense Reading Face. (It's a thing, ninjas-to-be.)
4. Nadine's Ninjas are awesome people (and secretly actual ninjas, but shhhh. Don't tell anyone.)
Nadine has a really cool street team. She likes to call us her ninjas. Basically, our job is to shove her books in the faces of ninjas-to-be. We also encourage each other and complete fun missions like writing reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. And Nadine is the sweetest person you will ever meet.
5. The books are very well-written.Her books have greatly influenced mine. It was actually A Time to Die that gave me the idea to write The Clockshifter in present tense.
If you aren't convinced, you can read a bit of the first book on Amazon.
Bonus Reason: The covers are beautiful and will look great on Bookstagram.
