About the Author
S.W. Lothian is the creator of edge-of-your-seat adventures that provide thrills for all ages. His books launch young readers into exciting settings and action filled mysteries, whilst reminding older readers of their childhood dreams. The idea behind the highly successful QUEST series was inspired by S.W's own childhood favorites such as Indiana Jones and anything to do with time-travel. The TIME SQUARE series is a more humorous take on time-travel that's also full of action, but has plenty of extra laughs and a great cast of offbeat characters. His forthcoming SUBWAY series promises to explore a new level of dystopian challenges to overcome and set a new level of tension and struggle for Young Adult fans of such greats as The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner.

Beginning halfway up the Andes Mountains en route to Machu Picchu, the story follows archaeologist Dr. Rex Hudson as he seeks a mystical Incan artefact he believes is hidden at the popular site. His assistant stumbles upon the artefact, and soon the duo is returning to the US with artefact in tow.
Dr. Hudson does not realize just how significant his find is. Nor does he realize just how much trouble he would cause by moving it from its hidden location in the Andes. He and two of his children soon would find themselves in a strange, unexpected location at the center of all time, from whence they would begin an adventure beyond their wildest imaginations.
“Time Square: The Shift” is the very well written product of Lothian’s superb creativity. His characters are very well depicted, and readers will find themselves growing to love their favorites as the story unfolds. Various quirks are entrenched in the many personalities in this story, each of which serves to further define the person who exhibits them. Readers may recognize some of the characters as sharing quirks with real people they may know, which always adds to the fun.
I have to strongly recommend ALL of Lothian’s books for the middle grade reader, particularly if that reader is somewhat un-enamored of reading a book. The story will pull them in, in spite of their resistance, and that can be a major turning point in a young person’s life. Or even an older person. Start the “Time Square” series by reading “The Shift”, but don’t be reluctant to check out the “Quest” series as well. It will be money well spent.
Like his previous books in the Quest Series, S.W. Lothian is a master at creating time travel stories. The other thing I love about his books is that he has the ability to tie adventure, suspense and humor all together in one book. This is definitely the recipe for hooking a middle grade reader. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read and review this book. It is one I will put on my shelves at school and then sit and wait impatiently for the next book in the series.
