I loved this new addition to the Timekeepers series. It wasn’t all fairytale driven, but touched on a critical, yet disturbing part of our history – WW2 and the Nazis. Again, the traveling group were a great cast of characters and interesting. I think Sharon has done an excellent job in building her characters. The scenes were action packed and you actually were afraid for the kids. I also liked the fact that there was some darkness to the story, not all “happyland”. And she touched on other subjects that a lot of middle and young authors are afraid to.
I believe the youth of today will benefit from stories that outline our jaded past and teach them that not all is roses and whip cream. How else do we learn if we don’t learn from our past?
I did enjoy it from beginning to end and would recommend this book for middle grade kids, and a few big kids as well! The history is welcomed and the story, however a reminder for is, is wonderful.
