A review by www.tellest.com – the Fantasy website
Hey folks! We’re using some of the momentum from our latest venture into the Otherworld to turn right back around and visit more works of great fiction. And there’s no better tale than today’s to go with the theme.
One of my favorite Michael Crichton properties was Timeline. And yes, I even loved the movie with Paul Walker and Gerard Butler. If you’re a fan of the concept of finding ways through time and space, today’s promo is going to be right up your alley.
William Long’s Timecrack is one of those entertaining books that pulls you out of the monotony of day to day life, and thrusts you upon a whole new world. In this first book in his series, we join the Kinross family in a beautiful, humorous, thrilling adventure when a portal opens and pulls them through to a fantastic, new world.
Timecracks act as portals to other dimensions. They have existed since the creation of time, and when one arrives during a storm at the newly discovered pyramid site in the Yucatan jungle, it’s the beginning of a nightmare journey into another world for archaeologist, Malcolm Kinross and his wife, Lucy.
And when another timecrack strikes the secretive energy facility in New Mexico, their sons, Archie and Richard, along with their tutor, Marjorie, and their uncle, Professor John Strawbridge, all find themselves thrust into the same world of New Arrivals, ancient warring tribes and deadly enemies.
Richard is endowed with the ability to ‘see’ beyond his own world. Can he help Archie to find their parents, and help the scientists at Mount Tengi to find a way for all of them to return home, and can he escape the clutches of the mad high priest, Prince Lotane?
Timecrack is a lovely endeavor by Long, and one that you’ll be happy to know already has a sequel, with a third coming along soon. It has characters that are endearing and easy to relate to, and a world that is fully realized with secrets left to be discovered.
