It starts out a little slow but the pace quickly picks up once Rolland gets attacked. My heart went out to Rolland as it becomes apparent how his father's despair left him an orphan and homeless.To me, it feels like people forget that all family members are affected when there is a death of loved one. Too often they fall apart instead of banding together. I feel like the historical figures added in were a nice touch and I like that he kept the time periods as well. The characters were lively and easy to relate to. I definitely look forward to reading the second book when it comes out! Over all, great read for those that enjoy fantasy mixed with science fiction but do warn it is longer than most young adult books.
This story is very unusual and quite captivating. We are introduced to its main character Rolland Wright who is a 17-year-old teenage who became an orphan and lives out of his car, having lost both his parents. With some unexpected twists and lots of graphic details, Rolland eventually discovers he has the ability to slow down time and an exciting journey begins with him hop-scotching thru time and solving his mother’s murder and finding love.
The authors graphic depictions, very detailed and thoughtful writing left no stone unturned. It even tied in characters that you are well familiar with from back in the days like Joan of Arc and Jessie James which I found particularly entertaining.
I literally read off the book in one night because I just could not put it down. The plot is really excellent and I can’t wait for part 2.
The author does a great job of using a vivid, visually-rich style of writing that made it very easy for me to become immersed into the story. The settings and environments are described with just the right blend of detail to make them seem intricate without bogging down the reader with unnecessary filler. Many of the characters are also crafted to a high standard, especially the protagonist, Rolland, who I also personally found to be quite relatable. As well as this and being a history buff, I was glad to see plenty of historical accuracy incorporated into the read – so bonus points for that!
That being said, this book was a very entertaining read. The concept of the Knights of Time allows Brett Williams to introduce iconic moments from history and throw in a "what if" twist to them. It's apparent that the author has put a lot of thought into how time travel works in his literary universe, and the details of slowing down and speeding up time through the eyes of Rolland was intriguing and well written.
I particularly enjoyed (and was frustrated by) Rolland's transformation from a surly git of a youth into an almost proper Knight of Time. His particular journey is darker than most hero's journeys, but revenge and love are two of the greatest motivators for a journey. If you're a fan of science fiction with a little bit of a love story tossed in, you'll like this book.
