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.

In Book III, THE CIRCLE OF GOLD, Sam has returned to present time after rescuing his father Allan from Bran Castle, where he has been imprisoned for months. But Allan is now in a deep coma and lies in a hospital bed, tethered to machines, unresponsive and seemingly without hope or the will to live. While at his father's bedside, Sam whispers his plan to go back in time to save his mother, using what he has learned during his previous time-travel voyages. Sam's words briefly trigger a reaction by his father, signaling hope for a recovery.
As Sam prepares to leave the hospital, he is both surprised and happy to see Alicia Todds, the girl of his dreams, who has come to visit his ailing father. At his grandparents' house a few days later, Sam is shaken awake by Rudolf, his Aunt Evelyn's overbearing boyfriend. Rudolf tells him that Mrs. Todds is downstairs and needs to talk to him right away. A frantic Mrs. Todds informs Sam that Alicia has been missing since the previous night and asks if he has heard from her.
Sam knows nothing about Alicia's disappearance but promises to see if she has left a message for him.Read more ›
There is no way, in my opinion, you could skip to book three and not read the first two. There is way too much background knowledge you need to know about how the author sets the boundaries for time travel.
There is tons of action and suspense in this book at it starts to tie in all the little pieces that are eluded to in teh first two books. When I was done I was upset that this was the final book as I enjoyed the ride!
We agreed that Steven Spielberg needs to take a look!
A great time-travel adventure.
The first book starts out a bit slow, but hang in there because it is a good series.
