|A terrific read for young people of all ages! This book has it all, from encounters with Egyptian Gods through to thwarting drug gangs in a quiet English school. The gift of the Time Sphere from Rhory's elderly aunt puts him at risk from the scheming Society of Secrets, who are determined to control the course of time itself. Both funny and gripping in equal measure, Time Sphere builds to a great climax involving ancient temples, manic secret service agents and strange goings on in a Wiltshire country house.|
-Graham Hancock, Author of War God

Time Sphere is above all a metaphysical adventure story. The reader is treated to glimpses of the Western mystery tradition for, while the story is set primarily in modern England, interwoven into its fabric are ancient Egypt and its gods, the ancient Greek world, and the Druid tradition. Esoteric arts and teachings, including telepathy, aura reading and reincarnation, are also very much a part of Time Sphere.
The imagery is vivid and textured, detailed and engaging, reminiscent of Ursula LeGuin's Earthsea Trilogy in the descriptiveness of the worlds it unfolds, both in terms of physical reality and other planes of existence. Those who have enjoyed other works connected with ancient Egypt, such as Joan Grant's Winged Pharaoh and Isha Schwaller de Lubicz' Her Bak novels, and those who love a good adventure story, will find much to engage and delight them in Time Sphere. Highly recommended!
This book has great characters, beautiful scenes, powerful imagery. There is an undercurrent of humor and pathos that makes it compelling.
Good reading to you!

Shoshan, a young Egyptian Priestess from 5,000 years ago and a young boy in a modern day London museum connect through time. Each in their own time find themselves in danger as the followers of Set, a sect that brings Chaos to the world and work to break their connection permanently.
More than a light airy story for teenagers. Time Sphere is a story for all ages. My only problem with the book is the constant shifting of times. Once it became easier to keep them straight I kept reading to the end without a break. Learn about Egyptian gods and religious practices. So much to imagine. The reader is absorbed by the story and will not want it to end. Enjoy it for yourself. My rating is 4.75 out of 5 stars.
Rhory connects with teens from the past to foil the evil plans of a Secret Society bent on steering the future for their own benefit. Time travel is a difficult subject made even more so in this story which weaves in new theories for the beginning of the world, the concept of God, and the possibility of life beyond death. A valiant effort with some good writing and vivid scenes. Readers will connect with Rhory who is a charming young man who handles the situation in which he finds himself with remarkable self-control, but perhaps not with the plot which in Rhory's own words is 'so confusing' as the author builds an extremely complex scenario of time travel and ancient Egyptian lore, and tells the story from different points of view.
There are a number of side stories which add neither to the plot nor the development of Rhory's character.
When the book finally climaxes, the defeat of the bad guys is so swift in one case, and a bit of happenstance in another, that readers may be disappointed.
This book is a mix of Egyptian myths and folkclore, coming of age and friendship. Is a YA book that could be easily read by youngs of all ages.
Top international reviews
The authors beautiful writing, together with his short punchy chapters make Time Sphere a real page turner, a book I would recommend to anyone, young and old. Now can't wait for Murray Morrison's next book to be released.
Time is the fascinating limitation on the worldly activity of humankind. To be free from time, and its restraints and inevitable and relentless march forward, opens extraordinary opportunities. What if there are time connections, communication across time, time travel or special spaces indicating `change and transcendence'? The author explores these through the time tunnel connection between Shoshan in ancient Egypt, Dimitris and Theano in the Greece of the great Pythagoras and otherwise ordinary Rhory in today's middle England. Whilst the story is one which will appeal primarily, and may well be aimed at, the younger reader, there is much in it to interest those of us who are older. The characters exude reality and attractive traits. Even the villains, whilst comical in their behaviour, have aspects of their lives which generate amusement. Look out for the delightful Shelley who magically straddles the world of truth and the world of villainy.
The book is well written and constructed which is always a pleasure in modern literature. It reaches a conclusion in circumstances which could have been difficult but leaves loose ends which might indicate and call for a sequel.
In all a suitable gift for the younger friend or relative for Christmas but before the gift is given it should be read and enjoyed first.
Murray Morison has done a great job of bringing his characters and story to life, and Time Sphere is a novel which will stay in my mind and heart. I’m looking forward eagerly to the next book in the series.
If you like your fantasy to race through time and history, but with a foothold in the present day, this is highly recommended!
This is excellent story telling about the battle between the forces of 'good' and 'evil' woven into the present and the past where our hero, Rhory, learns much about the spiritual side of life - and death. Looking forward to the next book.
