    INCREDIBLE!!

    Just when i thought nobody would ever write a truly original scifi novel again ... along comes THE POCKET AND THE PENDANT like a breath of fresh air. Like Star Wars, it can be enjoyed by young, old, not so smart folks and brainiacs alike. This book is the BEST BOOK I'VE READ THIS YEAR BY FAR (and I read A LOT). It compares to Philip Pullman, Tolkien, and others quite comfortably.

    A masterful job.

    On April Eight at exactly 3:38 in the afternoon the world STOPPED. Every person, every animal, every insect, every leaf that had been falling from a tree simply froze. The birds hung in mid air as if by string. No tree moved. No wind blew. The world and everything in it simply STOPPED. ............................................ However, there were a few beings that still moved. Some special children seemed to be immune to the stopping of time. Max Quick, Casey Cole, and Ian Keating were such. They seemed to have some super abilities too, thanks to 'the Pocket' of time stop. But there were aliens too. And the alien queen was searching for a pendant, an ancient artifact. ............................................. Max and his friends must recover the pendant first. Yet the closer they get to it the more dangerous things become. ............................................ ***** Even adults will be fascinated by the theories in this tale. Author Mark Jeffrey has done a masterful job of blending facts and theories together smoothly for an amazing story that readers will find utterly delightful. Very well done indeed! *****
