Let's face it - Anything fantasy-based that incorporates elements of our reality with dashes of science fiction is a win win.

I think the blend flat out worked; add a solid mix of intrigue and solid character development, and you have what is a good story for a pretty wide audience.

I imagine we'll hear more good things from Sue down the road ... kudos on a unique, compelling read.

This is a time travelling story. 3 teenagers are abruptly taken from their own times and brought to a wizard who needs help returning Excalibur to King Arthur, after it was stolen. They are given animal companions and new powers to help them on their quest.

I am a great fan of this type of story, I think the possibilities are endless. I also am very interested in the Arthurian legend, so to me this was a winner before I had even started! I loved the characters, and their animal companions were very endearing. I particularly liked the white tiger. the story moved at a good pace, and my fingers were constantly clicking the next page button to see what happened next.

This is aimed at the YA market but I think it would appeal to readers of all ages. I recommend it, particularly if you like the sort of dungeons and dragons type of story. This will have you gripped from page one.

I really enjoyed this book. Take a trip through history to the time of King Aurthur, merlin and magic. Three friends and their companions, have to return Excalibur to its rightful owner. They encounter many trials throughout, it's a great trip through history. Time travel through centuries with historical twists.

Wow! That's what I kept thinking when I was reading this book - Wow! This is an interesting and very unique take on time travel, wizards and sorcerers, and the Excalibur and King Arthur story. Three teens are brought from three different time periods (the 1800s, the 2000s, and the 3000s) to the very distant future to find Excalibur and take it back to King Arthur before the timeline changes the future irrevocably.

From Goodreads:
"Josh, Digger and Meri were rudely ported out of their time and far into the future by the Wizard. King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, is missing from its timeline. Without the sword in its proper place in history, everything from that point forward could change. Josh and his new found friends must find a way to return the sword to Arthur that won’t upset the timeline."

This book is so fresh and original! I literally could not stand putting the book down, because I had to find out what was going to happen next. I have always loved anything having to do with the King Arthur story, but it's really hard to find a new twist or a new way of approaching the story that hasn't been done before. When Sue described the book as time travel and King Arthur, and asked for reviewers, I didn't have to read any further - I volunteered right away! I was a little bit worried, though, that it would be the same ol', same ol', and I would have to review it as such, no matter how much I liked it. I am so, so happy that I can say it is a totally new approach to a beloved story! It really isn't about the King Arthur story, per se, but about three teens who are thrust into it, who have to find a way to return Excalibur to King Arthur without ruining the mystique surrounding it. It's about three teens who, without any time for advanced training, have to discover their talents for themselves, while on a quest. It's a story that you will enjoy, if you love a good fantasy! And the best part is that it is only the first in what is looking to be an awesome new series, which I am very, very happy about!! The only bad part is that I have to wait for the next book to come out, which hopefully will not be too long from now :D

In summary, I loved this book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new YA fantasy series to read. 5 stars!

Wizard Of Time follows the adventures of three teenagers, Josh, Meri & Digger who get enlisted by a Wizard to put back an object stolen from time.

The characters are very likeable and the story, which has a dungeons & dragons feel to it, is easy to follow with lots of action and surprises along the way.
The three teens also have to get to grips with dormant magical powers before they can complete their tasks as well as deal with how to survive in a strange place/time with no-one to look out for them.

Anybody who likes the “King Arthur” legends will also enjoy this as the teens first adventure is based around this timeline.

The book is aimed at the YA market but I reckon any age would love the story as it kept me intrigued right to the end.

On the critical side the story never explains why the wizard could not just go on the mission himself and why he needs the help of the three teens and there’s not enough interruption, during the mission, from the bad guys.
But i’m guessing, from clues given in the story, that this is one of a series and hopefully the bad guys ( the Bards) will be more disruptive in future exploits.

So i’m looking forward to the sequels......

Back to the Future meets King Arthur in this sweet YA fantasy. Across time, likeable teen characters, at the behest of a mysterious and at first enigmatic time wizard, are brought together. Provided with tools, and with the assistance of animal companions, they are given a task--surely the first of many. They also learn that they share a heritage, to fulfill a prophecy and protect the time line by finding and protecting the lost and stolen objects that can change history. Have you ever wondered what happens to those missing socks? Wizard of Time will explain.

I found Wizard of Time a fun read. The characters are enjoyable and the premise interesting. Al though the various elements have been used before, the author combines them in a fresh and compelling way.
