I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.

Overall, I found this to be a good read with a lot of potential. Its a story that will be more appreciated by a young adult crowd, especially boys, than older adults. Its a story full of magic and action as 4 teens that have just graduated high school embark on a trip to the Outback and find themselves on an adventure to save the world.

The characters are four friends that are finding themselves on an improbably and impossible mission to d

A. M. Sawyer’s Sword of Time

First I must state I was in no way paid to review this novel. I obtained a PDF download from the author after requesting reviews. With that said, I must give my honest opinion to future readers of this novel.

When I first began reading Sword of Time, I had no idea what to expect, not being a huge fantasy reader. As I read the first few chapters, I was confused and thought I must have been wrong when I read the genre. At first I was a bit disappointed, I was truly hopin

Review of Sword of Time
In A.M. Sawyer’s fantasy novel Sword of Time four teens’ post-graduation plans are shattered when a secret government special operations team accidently releases an ancient evil. Instead of having a nice vacation in Australia, the four teens encounter much more adventure than they ever intended. In the Australian Outback an old hermit guides them to a portal that allows them to go to a timeless temple which protects them from the ancient evil, a powerful sage named Kakos.

First of all, let me specify that Fantasy is not my forte-neither for reading, nor for writing. I do occasionally read Fantasy, but given a choice of several genres, it’s not my top priority. That said: I LOVED THIS BOOK. A. M. Sawyer’s writing is MAGICAL (and I mean that in the most metaphorical sense, not just because Magic is one of his topics)-lyrical, literate, poetic, imaginative. The Prologue captured me; no need to wait till Chapter One to look for a reader’s hook. This author is very sp ...more
