Don’t miss K.L. Horvath’s compelling time travel fantasy with talking beasts, iron monsters, otherworldly creatures and a desperate father!
For centuries the great Houses of Time have watched over the mythical creatures, those who manipulate the past for their own ends and humankind. But now the houses have dwindled and few are left who remember the mandates. One, in fact, is determined to put the world in its proper place—beneath his rule.
To do that, he’s kidnapped Jack Lyons, the youngest of the Time Travelers. And to get him back and defeat Bliss, Lord Aralias Lyons, Jack’s father, will do anything he has to. He’ll fight wicked spiders, an army of clockwork men, let his son suffer and manipulate time itself in order to right what Bliss has put wrong. He’ll even allow the innocent Miss Clara Heartwell to discover more about the Travelers than most mortals know.
Through secret and deadly deals with dragons, battles back in time and with Jack himself, Aralias has to think smarter, act faster, and be more decisive. Because in the end, saving Jack is all that matters …
If you follow my blog regularly you know that, in addition to blogging, I’m also an editor and proofreader. I don’t review the books that I work on (that would be a conflict of interest!), but I do love to spread the word about them when I can. This Booktrope project was just released on the 9th, and I wanted to give you all a chance to win a copy. Plus, I get to share another fun Top Ten Addictions list with you!
The book is a mix of time traveling steampunk with a British flair – I found it quite fun. If you were a fan of Jackaby, it has that sort of feeling (though not quite as intensely quirky!). Hope you’ll check it out!
