So begins The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis. The five White Pines Elementary School students actually enjoy their stay with the witch, who turned out to be the charming and intelligent Melody Spencer. Their stay was highlighted by the discovery of the Arch of Atlantis in Ms. Spencer’s flowerbed. The children excavated the 12,000 year-old relic and when Professor John Lucas sees his nephew’s picture of the archeological find, tension builds exponentially.
Ledwith develops an exciting tale of time travel where five children and two adults are destined to become Timekeepers ensuring that history goes unchanged, for evil forces are bent on its alteration for their own personal gain.
The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis is a fun read. Middle school youngsters will appreciate its slapstick humor and an encounter with a teenaged Robin Hood just learning about his destiny.
"The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis" is a wonderfully humorous and highly exciting read. Between laughing out loud at the extremely lively, witty dialogue and smiling at the bickering of the characters, I found it difficult to be serious even when disaster seemed imminent.
The marvelously realistic and unique characters endeared themselves to me in the very first couple of chapters. It was fascinating to see how each of them developed and discovered their unique talents during the course of the story. An artificial hand that becomes a magical artifact, and a slingshot made from a forked branch and a jockstrap, are just some of the highly unusual things that can happen when your mission requires you to use what you have on your person, and only that. Although the story in itself is really outstanding, the dialogue and interaction of the children, liberally spiced with hilarious wordplay, makes it a truly unforgettable read.Read more ›
By Sharon Ledwith
When five eighth grade students get into a food fight at school none of them thought it would lead on an adventure through time, the five students are sentenced to yard duty as punishment for their crimes shortly after they arrive at Melody's home the stumble upon an arch that was buried in her back yard. Once they excavate the mysterious arch they are whisked away to Atlantis where they meet up Lilith who is in charge of keeping watch over the gate, she informs them they are the last timekeepers and must travel through time to stop an evil magus from changing time.
Not only is this an original novel in itself but also a retelling of a classic story, Robin Hood, as the teens travel back to Nottingham on their search to stop Belial. The author does a wonderful job in crafting this novel, blending the two stories seamlessly such as when you think the timekeepers are going to inadvertently change history themselves the author weaves the story back to the original. The only problem I had with this novel is in the beginning when we are getting to know the characters. The author would call them by their first name and a paragraph or so later start using their last names to refer to the characters, as she is building the foundation of the story I would get lost thinking, "Okay, who is Treena and Mui?" when they are actually the same person. So be sure to pay attention to the characters last names as you go along, other than that this was a great young adult novel, it was highly unique and entertaining to read.
I was sent a free copy of this book for an honest review.
It's a rare treat I'm taken back to my childhood but Ledwith has managed to do just that. And if that wasn't enough, I wanted to be one of the characters actually holding the perfectly tuned crystal trident, reading tattered journals and cleaning gunk off a really, really, really old stone arch. Dang it. I want to be a Scribe. Is there an application process? Where do I have to stand in line? Timekeepers is pure awesomeness!
Filled with fast-paced action, one-liners, and pop-culture references on just about every other page, Ledwith's turn of phrases would give Joss Whedon a run for his money. She has marvelous wordplay reminiscent of Rick Riordan, frequent satire and amusing simile to earn you a one-way ticket to the nurse's office for a bad case of the funny bones. Without a doubt, Ledwith has managed to craft a wonderful witty take on the Robin Hood legend that would easily find a comfortable place on the shelf of young adult fantasy fiction. ~ Read-Indie-Books
