Moments In Time
on 24 August 2009
Being self employed I have little time to read these days. "Moments in Time" was a must for me as I had been being asked by J.A.Gordon to come up with a cover for the story. So I allocated one wet Sunday to bury myself away and do some research by flicking through the pages to get a gist of the book to achieve this. Little did I know how quickly I would be swept away in an adventure I could not get out of.
I'll be honest it isn't the kind of book I would normally have picked up I'm more macabre fiction or detective stories, a lover of Anne Rice, classic writers Jane Eyre, The Bronte Sisters, Enid Blyton, A.A. Milne and of course Tolkien's "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings", however from page one it had me hooked the descriptive narrative had you in the camp with the men you could hear them, smell them and feel the emotions they felt.
Not since Harry Potter have I read a book so fast, cover to cover in one day and then I read it a second time slowly to really get the full atmosphere of the amazing story as it unfolded. I have laughed till I cried at the antics of the men and cried over the turmoil they have had to deal with. I could not put the manuscript down I so enjoyed following this band of men and their daily life. "Moments in Time" is a truly amazing story full of life, humour, compassion, harsh trials, comradeship, honour and most of all love.
I have been so moved by this book that when it came out in print I read it again, I raved about it so much all my mates have wanted their own copies and my Father is chomping at the bit for book two "Weight of Time" to be released.
Luckily for me as I also designed the cover for "Weight of Time" I already have read the brilliant and equally fast paced emotional story that is due to be released end of November this year. Which means come October I will be opening "Moments in Time" again to join the merry century and refresh myself of all their marvelous characters so that when I have my printed copy of "Weight of Time" in my hands I will be following straight on with the adventure.
The only problem I have now is impatiently waiting for Book Three.
"Moments in Time" is pure quality in print right down to the choice of type making it so easy to read. The book itself is a lovely size not to weighty very easy to handle, the paper pure white very good quality not rag and has a lovely feel to it. Everything about this book has love and pride worked into it, its a joy to own and I can't wait to get the entire collection on my book case.
I hope you decide to enter the "Chronicles of Eternity" as well, you won't be disappointed
