My Review of The Time Key
As soon as I read the synopsis of The Time Key, I knew it would be a book I would enjoy reading. What I didn’t realize was how much I would love it! Sometimes when there is a book by a newer author, one you’ve never heard of, you can be a bit leery thinking, “How good will this book be?”.
The Time Key was GREAT! I just cannot explain how blown away I was by this book. It’s not just a book about time travel, though time travel does play a big part. What I really felt in this book was hope. When the book begins, Stanley has no hope. He is a widower who not only lost his wife, but he also lost his daughter. He is wallowing in his despair, and he’s ready to end his existence. What stops him is so completely fantastical that you’ve got to read it to “believe” it!
The characters in The Time Key will amaze you. They are so well-written. There are a lot of characters, yet they are all so three dimensional. You will absolutely walk away from this book feeling like this really happened. Like these are real people! The way the story is laid out is just perfect. Each element of the book makes it feel more real. It is so fantastical, yet you will completely believe that The Time Key exists.
I am in love with this book and cannot wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 huge stars! Buy it today!
