This book has been fascinating. I have no other words to describe it. It’s a bit of everything, and has been thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you, Ms Crowens, for this story. I’m looking forward to the next book in The Time Traveler Professor series. I don’t want this series to ever end. ***Book provided at no charge by PICT.*** Submitted by sunny island breezes.
Let’s travel to Edinburgh, Scotland, 1898. The main character of this book, John Patrick Scott is meeting Arthur Conan Doyle at a pub. “Can I assume you believe in the transmigration of souls?” asks Arthur. And so begins this unusual book, filled with the flavor of Victorian literature and the fascinating studies of the time. Arthur Conan Doyle is mentoring John Patrick, a student studying music. They share a passion to explore the realms of Spiritualism and related paranormal phenomena. Their first project is to develop their telepathic communication skills. John Patrick is also building his own time travel device, consisting of bands with moving magnetized parts that he wears on his head. He has succeeded in traveling to the past and the future. He frequently visits times and places that have to do with magic. Flavored with Victorian literature, Arthur Conan Doyle likes to quote his own works, this book will appeal to those who are fascinated and familiar with elements of “the beyond” and with time travel. I am not drawn to these topics and I found this book to be confusing and arcane. However, other reviewers seem to enjoy it. Thanks to NetGalley and Atomic Alchemist Productions for a digital review copy. This is my honest review.
