Overview


The astounding conclusion to Guillaume Prevost's fast-moving, mind-bending time travel trilogy.

Sam rescued his father from Dracula's castle, but that doesn't mean their troubles are over. Now Allan Faulkner lies in a coma in the Sainte-Mary hospital, tossing about and muttering aloud about saving Sam's late mother. Sam has no choice but to go back in Time to see her. His inability to control his destination, however, means he journeys to ancient China, Renaissance Rome, and even 2025 -- where he sees his own grave! Can Sam prevent this grisly ending and save his mother once and for all?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
Sam Faulkner's adventures pick up where they left off as the "Book of Time" series continues in this third installment. Unlike ordinary teenagers with typical concerns, Sam's life consists of trying to put the pieces of a metaphorical puzzle together in an effort to save not only his father, but also Aliciahis long-time friend and love interest. Through his time-traveling adventures from home to China to Rome and Egypt in between to make a delivery to Diavolo, Sam gathers clues and souvenirs to assist in his travels to the next destination. The clock is ticking as Sam races through centuries using all of the courage he has to do what must be done. He is met with a life-changing surprise when he discovers the identity of the person behind all of the evil manipulation and danger he encounters. Sam witnesses the effects of greed to the greatest extent and yet he rises above it all to accomplish the impossible. This engaging book is a page-turner from the very beginning and is a lesson of never giving up when it comes to fighting for someone you love. Reviewer: Allison Fetters

Loved the book. It reviewed the first two books and brought the story to a conclusion

The last book of the series, amazingly written, the action never stops as Sam travels through time to save his mom, at the same time, saving his dad. Kidnapped, battled ancient warriors, and almost cooked alive, Sam has many challenges ahead. I would completely recomend this to other kids in grades 5-and up.

After rescuing his father from Dracula's castle, Sam Faulkner's days as a time traveler should be over. Unfortunately, the unknown enemy who tried to prevent their return isn't finished complicating things. Sam must journey through time again in an attempt to put a stop to the evil force threatening to destroy his family. Sam travels to Rome during the Renaissance, seeks an ancient Chinese emperor's tomb, and takes a frightening trip into the future as he tries to save his loved ones. The final book in THE BOOK OF TIME trilogy doesn't disappoint. Twists and turns and revelations thrilled me with each turn of the page. Though I'd never been a fan of time travel, I couldn't help but enjoy the ride as I skipped through time with Sam and the other characters in Prévost's series. I loved the way Prévost tied all three books together and brought the story full circle in the end. I enjoyed time traveling with Sam and, when I'm ready to travel again, I can pick up the THE BOOK OF TIME and start all over.
