The first half of the book was not bad, but not that great either. But, after finishing it, this book exceeded my expectations, especially near the end. Even though this book is aimed at teenagers, I certainly enjoyed reading it. There were really nice plot twists and I'm definitely curious about the other book in this series, The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis.

I received a copy of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway.

I liked the story. The descriptions were good. What made me feel like nitpicking was the banter between the characters Tau and She-Aba. They take away the seriousness of the situation most of the times.

"This is time. It is nothing, yet it is everything"
Is it safe to put Time in the hands of teenagers? Who can you trust when it comes to Time?

First of all, I want to thank Sharon Ledwith for the opportunity to read this book. I received the book through Goodreads giveaways.

The story brings you in the world of imagination, dreams, but it also seems so realist. You want to help those kids through their journey and makes you dream about being able to manipulate past and future.

I would recommend this

Writing with youngsters in mind, Sharon Ledwith has a winner in Legend of the Timekeeper. Books that grip, hold, and keep a young mind are not that easy to find. This one is sure to put them on the floor with knees supporting an E-reader, ignoring all social media and gamers. And after the first page, hard to put down. Meals might have to wait.

After reading Legend, it was difficult to come back to the real world. This is a good one folks. Don’t pass it by.

Legend of the Timekeepers by Sharon Ledwith is a wonderful, magical adventure suitable for all ages. I highly recommend it.

Atlantis, the civilization filled with wonders and tragically lost somewhere beneath the depths of the ocean, is the starting point for this tale, but it builds to include other ancient civilizations as well. The citizens of Atlantis who flee before the destruction go to all the corners of the earth. Lilith, the main character, and her father journey to Egypt and have to ass

This story takes us back to the time of the destruction of Atlantis! Meet Lilith, who in the Black Lands is given the job of Time Keeper. Together with new friends she must try to save civilization from some nasty individuals. I loved Legends because it gave the reader a look at the origins of timekeepers. Another 5 star read!!!!!

Its not one of the fantasy books that you read and read many long descriptions for the sake of places or too many names that you feel like you are lost in a bad way.You feel like you enter a world without it taking your foot from the ground and watch it from the distance as a camera along all the journey from Black Land to Atlantis So writing and sarcastic tone in the book makes it more fantastic and enjoyable that parts it from the other fantastic books.I read it from the start to the end witho ...more

Last year, I had the joy of reading The Last TimeKeepers and the Arch of Atlantis and I highly enjoyed it. When given the opportunity to read Legend of the Timekeepers, I jumped at the chance. It's a prequel to TLTATAOA, and I was excited to revisit the magical world that Ledwith has created.

Just as page-turning and nail-biting as I remember, Legend of the Timekeepers is sure to delight readers of all age. The characters are easy to relate to and the young adult fantasy just comes to life as the

Legend of the Timekeepers was a fast-paced novel that takes you to a world that many others have dreamed about before, Atlantis. I think the author did an amazing job describing the setting and the elaborate wardrobe of all of the characters.

The main character, Lilith was an admirable lead. She was average in many ways, but she had certain parts of her that were absolutely extraordinary. At the beginning, she is kind of shallow and narrow-minded having just left her Atlantis home to live in the

I recently read The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis, and this is the prequel to that book. It gives us the history of the arch, the Timekeepers, and the battle between good and evil.

The story is realistic and enjoyable. You feel as though you are right there with Lilith and her friends. It is a true page-turner, with several nail-biting scenes. Lilith grows and matures throughout the story in a most appealing manner.

This is a 150-page book, so it is a quick and easy read. If you enjo

Reading LEGEND OF THE TIMEKEEPERS felt like stepping into an ancient world of legend with Atlantean and Egyptian gods come to life. The details were very interesting, and I connected with the main character Lilith right away. This magical tale has a historical fantasy feel, and young readers will recognize names from their world history books, like Ra and Poseidon. I'm giving this book 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
