5.0 out of 5 stars And the Quest Continues..., 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate (The Time Hunters Saga Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Wouldn't it be wonderful to be Time Travellers? **sigh**
In the The Time Hunters and the Spear of Fate we once again go on the trail of a lost relic, the Spear of Fate, this time, before evil Emerson Drake, a rogue Time Traveller, can get his dirty hands on it. And time is not on our side (pun intended).
I have read the first two, The Time Huntersand The Time Hunters and the Box of Eternity (Book 2) and it is darker, more sinister but no worries, still plenty of excitement and fun. Plenty of action too, and strangely enough, plenty of real historic facts mixed with fiction (euh, I admit it... I did not know there was really an artefact called the Spear of Fate, or I did not know the real name of Dr Death) and plenty of facts on mythology (ie. the Minotaurs, Atlantis, Ancient Egypt) but these little fun facts (except for Dr Death) flow in very well with the stories as they are answers to innocent question from either Becky or Joe.
But it is, before everything else, a book for children (of all ages) and it does not fail us. I could not read it in one sitting, unfortunately, but my daughter did. She likes Becky, even though my daughter is only 10 and I suspect she is trying to develop telekinesis in secret.
If you have not read it yet, then do it now. The kindle version, if you have a kindle, is very affordable. I read somewhere that Mr Ashmore was going to release soon number 4, so, get ready. This is the series of the Time Hunter, but each book can be read independently. There is some background info so, you can catch up who is who and the background info does not impede the reading at all.
You will love Uncle Percy. He is, I would say, an Indiana Jones with a touch of the mad professor. He must be quite dishy too as many of the ladies in the Time Travelling Community make doe eyes at him (not that he notices anyway) and a real gentleman hero. Becky would like to be like any sixteen year old girl and has some problems to come to term with her ''special'' abilities, but she is very wise for her years and Joe, well, Joe is heavy, cheeky, boisterous, but as I have a twelve year old son, I can really say that he is quite well portrayed.
There is also the enigmatic Will, Edgar the Minotaur and other wonderful people like Maria and her husband, the housekeepers, and Barbie, the ... robot helper.
As a parent, I have no hesitation in recommending the three books of the Time Hunters. As a reader, I recommend them to anyone who is young at heart and loves fantasy. Young at heart because you have to remember that they are principally written for children.
