Really unusual plot, well crafted, compelling and impeccably edited. Could kick myself, this gem was sitting, ignored, on my iPhone for some time. Will be reading the rest of this series, and anything else from this author!
*Purchased from Amazon Au*
Every chapter ends with a cliffhanger and I particularly enjoyed the chapters in the quarry, when the protagonist was trying to avoid a gang of local bullies. The author shows a good understanding of child psychology and was able to portray this in a really natural way.
And the ending was fantastic! Such an gripping way to finish the story. I can't wait for book no. 2 to be released!
Teenager Jake breaks into a fenced-off old quarry, meets a mysterious girl, and gets into trouble. His story is interleaved with that of a neolithic stone cutter and a quarry man in 1939. Each of their lives is affected by a strange black monolith which has the power to bridge across time.
The writing is good, highly readable and well edited. Switching between the different plot threads is handled well, maintaining tension and interest. My only reason for not recommending this one is that the whole book feels like set up for the real story (a sequel is planned). It’s all enjoyable, but not a great deal happens.
It has taken me a while to get to this book - I think mainly because the cover was a bit dull for my liking so it always got put to the bottom of TBR pile. I liked the idea behind it and the summary on the back sounded quite exciting.
However, I did not finish this book - I got to chapter 20 and had to give up as it was a little dull, confusing and there were too many characters introduced at the same time for my liking. I am sure that it will appeal to lots of other people but not for me sorry.
