    Felt like a part two, but still entertaining and fun

    Review by Jill Williamson

    The Kings lead a double life. At school, they try to pretend like nothing has changed, but at home, they're completely focused on finding their mother before anyone finds out that she's missing.

    A stranger is seen lurking around the house several times before he announces himself. He is Mr. Taksidian, a powerful businessman in town who is set on buying the house from the Kings. When they refuse, Mr. Taksidian looks for other ways to get the Kings to leave. The truth is, they would be more than happy to leave this house and town behind, but not without their mother. The family unites to do everything they can to withstand the forces they are fighting against.

    This book was filled with exciting scenes. David is whisked back to a WWII battle, then later both boys find themselves in the Civil War. David makes enemies at school as well. This book didn't feel like it would stand very well on its own. It felt like a part two and I think reading the first book is necessary to know what's going on. Still, it was entertaining and fun. It also ends on a cliffhanger, so, I'm off to read book three to know how this story ends. Recommended.

    A Great Read

    I started reading this series quite by accident and it wasn't until this book that I realized this was a book written for teens. However, I was already addicted to the story line. This is more of a well written family read. This book is very easy to read, the story is written well, and I bet you find a favorite character and maybe even switch between characters. Grab all 6 in the series and have a fun read.

    LOVE IT-The WHOLE Series

    This entire six book series was amazing I could have read them in two days, if I didn't have to work. I took them everywhere-they're fast paced time traveling adventures are entirely new and awesome!

    Getting darker

    I am enjoying this series. I loved the change in focus from Zander to David and hope that the author continues doing that in future books. I am a little frustrated by the lack of progress. Reading this book gave me the feeling that it was an excert from another book, rather than a stand alone tale.
