Review by: Vanessa Finaughty on May 23, 2012 :
Quality Times and the Whispering Tombs is a light-hearted fun mix of science fiction, adventure and humour that left me wanting more. This is another book I was easily able to read in one sitting. Ramage’s dialogue is engaging, and the story is my favourite type – fast paced and engaging.

The protagonist, Quality Times, lives in a world where humans are in regular contact with various alien species, and she’s lucky enough to have her own shrinkable time-travelling spaceship. Quality and Tim, her seventeen-year-old travelling companion, are talked into joining Bob, a wealthy alien archaeologist, on his quest to find ancient hidden treasure. Quality takes an instant liking to Qez, Bob’s assistant, who seems not to notice her, although Bob claims he has a crush on her.

This book is the perfect introduction to science fiction, particularly for young readers who haven’t read the genre yet, as there are no heavy scientific terms to wrap your head around – you can just sit back and enjoy the adventure. Though Quality Times and the Whispering Tombs is a YA book, I’d recommend it to any age group; it’s a nice break from heavier reading.

Review by: JC Cassels on May 23, 2012 :
Love Quality Times! She's a tongue-in-cheek time-traveling adventurer. Her sidekick, Tim, is a great foil for her jaded demeanor as she's dragged into an ever-increasingly dangerous adventure with twists and turns to keep you turning the pages!Tim, an unapologetic Whovian, tries telling people he's a Timelord from Gallifrey, much to Quality's chagrin.

In their first adventure (of many, I hope) Quality Times and Tim are on a quest to see the universe. With a time machine/space ship that shrinks down to the size of a child's toy, all of time and space are theirs for the exploring. So where do they go? Why to a resort, of course. That's where they meet Bob, a self-styled archaeologist complete with safari outfit and pith helmet. Bob's hunky assistant Qez, a.k.a. Bluey the "sexy police siren" catches Quality's eye.

Joining forces with Bob and Qez, Quality and Tim try their hand at grave robbing, I mean archaeology, and end up taking on more than they'd anticipated.

The Whispering Tombs is a rollicking good romp complete with betrayal, greed, grave robbing, gunplay and extinct critters that keep popping up at the darnedest moments. It's a quick and fun escape that ends all-too-quickly and leaves you turning the page looking for more. You'll gasp with surprise, laugh out loud at some parts and groan at others. All-in-all, expect to be delighted and entertained.
