REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
I gave this to my twelve year old, who is obsessed with history and the possibility of time travel, and he adored it. ~ Yvie Field, NetGalley
The fast pace of this ingenious and skillfully woven story leads it's hero, Rhory, and the reader on an emotional roller coaster through time. A tale in which, Rhory, a modern day, somewhat naive, teenager is inextricably caught up in a battle between the forces of good and sinister perpetrators of evil. The action takes place concurrently in worlds as extreme as present day England, Alexandria in BC Egypt and the snow-covered countryside of sixteenth century Sweden.
Time Knot is a fascinating, page-turner of an adventure aimed at the young adult, but equally enjoyable for anyone. ~ Veryan Williams Wynn , author of The Spirit Trap
M.C. Morison's Time Sphere left me anxious for the sequel. Time Knot is that sequel and it more than lives up to the action, mystery, and humor of the first book in the Timepathway Series. Rhory remains a lively and likeable hero and his adventures never fail to enthrall. ~ Jan Krause Greene, Author of I Call Myself Earth Girl
Time Knot is an excitingly non-stop adventure story, and Mr Morison has developed a literary style that brings the reader four-square into the exploits of the teenage protagonist Rhory as he pursues, and in turn is pursued, through time and space in his efforts to save the priceless wisdom of ancient Alexandria.
The book is a more than worthy successor to Time Sphere but it can most certainly be read alone.
Time Knot is aimed at a Young Adult market and it strikes exactly the right balance between fantasy and historical accuracy, neither condescending to the reader nor expecting too much of her either. Rhory encounters unexpected twists and turns in a dizzying helter skelter through time and space, and so will the reader. It is a lot of fun! ~ Philip Duke, Author of A Terrible Unrest
Time Knot is a fast-paced, time-slip novel, a sequel to Morison’s debut,‘Time Sphere.’
A most clever tale, unwrapping the notion that ‘Gods created time that mankind could be free…to choose as their minds decided, ’ Time Knot is a humorous, yet thought-provoking read.
The story opens with a prophecy:
‘You must go both North and South. Find the fire before you find the ice. Trust the drum, it knows the dance of time. You are the dance and the dancer.’
And so it starts, the latest adventure of Rhory, The Red King, dodging bullets, arrows, and disbelief from his big sister, Juliette. Time-travelling to sixteenth century Sweden, where he embarks on crystal boat ride in turquoise waters, and sleigh-chases over a frozen lake, guided only by the yellow, crescent moon and the stars, Rhory leaves behind himself only foot-steps in the snow.
Simultaneously, he ‘lands’ in modern-day Alexandria, at first, unaware of those on his trail.
“‘BEWARE,’ whispered the soundless voice. A voice older than Alexandria. A voice older than Egypt,” denoting a slip back to Alexandria in the year 380 CE for Rhory (and a timely move for this book aimed at the YA market) offering up for the reader a rich, poetic insight into the legend of the true Goddess Isis.
Enriched by the scent of ancient sandalwood and the timeless Northern lights, this tale of alchemy stretches the imagination into what could be, and warns of the possible repercussions of misplaced personal possessions!
I’m already pondering the next instalment. ~ Helen Noble, Author of The 49th Day
