This was a really strong story in the fantasy genre, it had that element that I was looking for and enjoyed the overall story being told. The characters felt like they belonged in this universe and enjoyed the way they worked with the story. I thought Faith Conlon had a great writing style and couldn’t wait for more.

Timelight is a book for a younger audience, say 8 and up, though I as a 22-year-old quite enjoyed it.
It was an interesting read that keeps you guessing, I really liked that animals are a big part of the whole story.
It is definitely something I would recommend to young readers, that love fantasy and the thought of time travel.
It leaves off on a sort of cliff hanger, so I believe this might be a series, but this is the first one. Timelight gets published in October of this year. So be on the look out for this great read for your children or maybe, if you are like me and you like stories of time travel, mystery and adventure, for yourself this October!!!!

Birthdays are supposed to be happy times, but Charlie’s left him puzzled and sad. He was a mere fourth grader when his mother disappeared on his birthday. That was three years ago. His family refused to talk about her vanishing except for his grandmother. On Charlies’ thirteenth birthday, he discovers he has inherited the ability to time travel. He and three of his best buddies embark on an adventure; they are searching for a silver amulet that is a family heirloom. He believes the amulet will let him to his mother. Together the boys search across the world and across time, and along the way they befriend animals which join them on the adventure. They meet historical people whom they have only read about. They witness historical events as they take place right in front of their eyes. Someone else is looking for the silver amulet, Malcolm Mordrex; he is an evil time traveler with evil intents. It isn’t an easy journey, there are difficulties and ambushes along the way. It is a battle between Charlie and Malcolm.
This is a thrilling novel for high level elementary readers and middle schoolers. The action in this tale is exciting. This tale explores the concept of destiny, time travel, and human drama. The action in this tale is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seat eagerly turning pages. It appears this is the first book in a new series. This book is 304 pages long and due to be published in October 2024. Put this one on your list.
