Overview

The Time Thief (Gideon Trilogy Series #2) by Linda Buckley-Archer

What happens when a seventeenth-century bad guy has twenty-first-century technology?

An accident with an antigravity machine catapulted Peter Schock and Kate Dyer back to 1763. A bungled rescue attempt leaves Peter stranded in the eighteenth century while a terrifying villain, the Tar Man, takes his place and explodes onto twenty-first-century London. Concerned about the potentially catastrophic effects of time travel, the NASA scientists responsible for the situation question whether it is right to rescue Peter. Kate decides to take matters into her own hands, but things don't go as planned. Soon the physical effects of time travel begin to have a disturbing effect on her. Meanwhile, in our century, the Tar Man wreaks havoc in a city whose police force is powerless to stop him.Set against a backdrop of contemporary London and revolutionary France, The Time Thief is the sequel to the acclaimed The Time Travelers.

A thief from the year 1763 finds himself in the 21st century. Just think of all the bad things he can do with the technology now available to him. This is the second book in the series and keeping track of who is where is getting complicated! This starts out with Kate and Mr. Schock traveling back in time to rescue his son, Peter. The only problem lies in the fact that instead of ending up in 1763, they end up 29 years later! They do find Peter but he is unwilling to admit who he is. Plus, the anti-gravity machine has become damaged and is no longer a working machine. NOW how do they get home? The Tar Man, the thief, finds himself someone willing to teach him about the technology of the 21st century and who is just as willing to do unscrupulous things. All this time travel has the NASA people concerned about the effect on our history and Kate finds that time travel HAS had an affect on her. We meet French aristocrats, learn how technology allows the Tar Man to gain wealth and that there might be parallel worlds. Gerald Doyle, as the reader, uses his talents to create different voices so the listener can tell who is speaking. His inflections are wonderful and you can tell English characters from French ones because of this. His ability to do this makes listening easy. I can¿t wait for the third book to come out.

I read the first book in the series first, The Time Travelers, and I really like the storyline. I'm a big fantasy-book reader and I LOVE Harry Potter so this fit right into my preferences. Good book!

I was hooked after reading 'Gideon the Cutpurse'. I couldn't put it down and it was the exact same way with the 'Time Thief'. I'm dieing to find out how the story ends.. I'm holding my breathe for the spell binding conclusion.
