Check out my other reviews, discussions and link ups at Fantasy of the Silver Dragon.

I've seen this book hyped as the 'new' Harry Potter. Every review I saw before reading it was glowing, not a single down vote anywhere. And the synopsis sounded like it could be good. But from the beginning, there were things that irked me about the book.

I may be being too critical, but in the first little bit, you meet Stella and her parents. They're out in this tiny little boat in the middle of shark infested

Stella and the Timekeepers was a lot better than I expected it to be.

I liked Stella enough as a protagonist but I wish we got to see more growth for her character. She seemed almost too perfect- I mean she handled the discovery of who she was very well especially for someone so young and lacked a certain depth that her character fell flat.

That is not to say that I didn't enjoy some of her cute moments with her friends. I generally liked the plot but it felt very basic and I wanted a little more

This was almost a perfect read. It had a masterfully written plot and story, well written characters and it is definitely a book written for 'young adults.' There was one part that didn't sit with me well, but I don't want to ruin the story for anyone else by mentioning because it's a personal peeve of mine. Overall, it was good and enjoyable read.

I really like this book for kids who are in the 4-6 grade. I found the book to be cute and engaging ramping up to an perfect ending. There are some good lessons to learn in the story line and would definitely hand it to one of my pre-teens to enjoy.

Good story line. Good characters. Wonderful to read

Lays it on a bit thick with the new thought teachings. Unfortunately that diminishes the audience a bit, it's an alright story if it could avoid the preaching.

Engaging, exciting, filled with truth.

It is so refreshing to find a book that is fun, adventuresome in addition to quietly displaying the Secrets of the universe. I will gift this book to all my grandkids! I'm glad fresh authors like Mick have arrived on the scene.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, but just as important, the message! I am anticipating the next book in the series!
