Reading the initial part of the blurb and I thought "Oh yes, brilliant". Read the rest... where Rolland, the protagonist finds that he has the ability to "slow the flow of time" and ends up on a journey outside of time and space, fighting General Andrew Jackson in the 19th Century, and I thought, "Huh". I didn't think it'd be my cup of tea, to be honest, but I thought I'd give it a try because there are a ton of good reviews and the initial part of the blurb had intrigued me - plus I'm a big fan of fantasy and YA novels like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, so I thought maybe I'd like it.

Well! I was most definitely pleasantly surprised. Reading a book about a boy who bends time and space to solve the mystery of his mother's murder, to find love, to hang out with a group of history's beloved characters, including outlaw Jesse James and to fight - eventually ending up in the literal version of Eden, a kind of alternate dimension, does not sound like your "normal" read. But it's brilliant for fans of sci-fi and fantasy, and the language and relationships and the world that the author illustrates for you is so exquisite, you'll find yourself getting drawn into the story even if this isn't your usual kind of read.

Rolland is abandoned and left to fend for himself - without a home, mind - when his mother dies. His father leaves him. He tries to live out of his car, attend school, and maintain a normal life but quickly finds that this is pretty much impossible without a home and some semblance of a normal life. Then, some things happen - I don't want to tell you the details, because I want you to discover them for yourself - and Rolland discovers that he can control the flow of time, from very slooowww to very FAST.

This was a very interesting and unique take on this story. I have always enjoyed reads where there is a background or life story about a god, titan, figure of fantasy, etc whom we all have heard of. I was keen to read this story, as I remember watching one of the stop motion films, as a child, that involved a run-in with Father Time. I used to love watching it and have always enjoyed stories that involve him.

I also liked that the non-fiction background of the author meant that the story came across in a very different way. It was told as if all events were factual, rather than a fictional story. I thought it really made the read very different.

As it is the first in a series, it does take on a lot at once, trying to give you background, world details and character details, personalities and powers/responsibilities. It does mean that this read is very intricate, but I rather enjoyed that part about it. I do think that the books will be less dense, with detail, once the author has laid the groundwork, but if you are a lover of intricately woven tales, you’ll like this.

I loved the characters in the story. They were really fun to read about and it was great to have a story that told the ‘true’ story of several different characters we’ve all be read to told stories about. I found the characters had a lot of depth and their personalities match what I though they should, in comparison to their tale.

Overall, this was a good read. It is intricate and written in a very different way, making it a large attempt by the author, but I think he really pulled it off. I am keen to see where this series leads.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Format: Paperback
The story is about a young man, who is homeless after his mother is murdered and his Dad abandons him. After being attacked he discovers his own “super power” of being able to slow down time around him and eventually, travel through time and dimensions.
Along the way he fights with and against various historical figures such as Joan of Arc, Jessie James etc. I really liked this fresh take and blending of different genres and styles. You have the classic revenge tale, the sci fi time travelling and historical settings and fiction all mixed together. I liked this as it gave fresh new angles to age old themes.
The characters are very well written and the story flows really really well, making a long ish book go by super quickly. The characters fantastic and have been crafted beautifully, you really feel for Rolland and want him to succeed. All in all I highly recommend this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time is Always Relative 10 Jun. 2015
By BeautyFul Word - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Meet Rolland Wright - a seventeen year old orphan living out of his car in rural Woodland Hills, California. Aside from grappling with the fact of being abandoned by his drunken father two years previous following his mother's mysterious murder, his life mostly revolves around finding a warm place to sleep at night. When one day he is attacked by men claiming to have killed his father, Rolland discovers a strange ability to slow the flow of time around him, beginning a journey that takes him to places outside of time, space, and eventually to the early 19th century to fight the sinister General Andrew Jackson. With the help of a rag-tag group of historical and mythical figures with various supernatural abilities of their own (Joan of Arc, Jesse James, etc) known as the Knights of Time, Rolland solves the mystery behind his mother's murder, falls in love, battles the evil Edward Vilthe - reaper of souls, and finds a home of his own in the paradise known as Eden.

It starts out a little slow but the pace quickly picks up once Rolland gets attacked. My heart went out to Rolland as it becomes apparent how his father's despair left him an orphan and homeless.To me, it feels like people forget that all family members are affected when there is a death of loved one. Too often they fall apart instead of banding together. I feel like the historical figures added in were a nice touch and I like that he kept the time periods as well. The characters were lively and easy to relate to. I definitely look forward to reading the second book when it comes out! Over all, great read for those that enjoy fantasy mixed with science fiction but do warn it is longer than most young adult books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good mix of adventure, sci-fi, fantasy and love 2 Oct. 2015
By Damion young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The title (Time is Relative for a Knight of Time) really sparked my interest and reading the intro on amazon had me intrigued. I read a lot and appreciate a variety of writing styles and genres. This novel was filled with some of the best; adventure, mystery, sci fi with the added flair of time travel and yes even love. Hence it had a wide appeal for me.

This story is very unusual and quite captivating. We are introduced to its main character Rolland Wright who is a 17-year-old teenage who became an orphan and lives out of his car, having lost both his parents. With some unexpected twists and lots of graphic details, Rolland eventually discovers he has the ability to slow down time and an exciting journey begins with him hop-scotching thru time and solving his mother’s murder and finding love.

The authors graphic depictions, very detailed and thoughtful writing left no stone unturned. It even tied in characters that you are well familiar with from back in the days like Joan of Arc and Jessie James which I found particularly entertaining.

I literally read off the book in one night because I just could not put it down. The plot is really excellent and I can’t wait for part 2.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 22 Jan. 2016

I often find that books with a strong time travel theme are either usually a drastic “hit” or “miss” for me personally. Fortunately, I could tell early on in the read that “Time is Relative for A Knight of Time” is the former and I must say that the majority of the book is executed in a very impressive manner.
The author does a great job of using a vivid, visually-rich style of writing that made it very easy for me to become immersed into the story. The settings and environments are described with just the right blend of detail to make them seem intricate without bogging down the reader with unnecessary filler. Many of the characters are also crafted to a high standard, especially the protagonist, Rolland, who I also personally found to be quite relatable. As well as this and being a history buff, I was glad to see plenty of historical accuracy incorporated into the read – so bonus points for that!

4.0 out of 5 stars Einstein-Rosen Bridges in Madison County 22 Oct. 2015
By Tiny Octopus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a book that you're going to want to take your time in reading. It doesn't follow a very linear path at all. In fact, having a notepad open so you can jot down notes about things might help you keep track of what's going on.

That being said, this book was a very entertaining read. The concept of the Knights of Time allows Brett Williams to introduce iconic moments from history and throw in a "what if" twist to them. It's apparent that the author has put a lot of thought into how time travel works in his literary universe, and the details of slowing down and speeding up time through the eyes of Rolland was intriguing and well written.

I particularly enjoyed (and was frustrated by) Rolland's transformation from a surly git of a youth into an almost proper Knight of Time. His particular journey is darker than most hero's journeys, but revenge and love are two of the greatest motivators for a journey. If you're a fan of science fiction with a little bit of a love story tossed in, you'll like this book.
