What a fantastic premise with a solid execution. I'll post my full review tomorrow after my final exam for the year (Yay! Six months without university) but all I can say is, this is a great read and and just as great a listen - Irish narrators are the best!

This book sets up a lot of intriguing steampunk-inspired ideas and is a wonderful foundation for the books to come! I'd also recommend this book to anyone who loved the anime/manga, Promised Neverland.

Charles Dickens, meet Steampunk!

As an introduction to Rebekah Dodson, a found this story to be quite fascinating. It was initially slow starting, but picked up. The orphanage was interesting and I'd love to hear more of that backstory. Parker is the only character I really got to know in the story. He was a bit complicated, but singleminded in his love of Lydia. I found myself wondering what he would have chosen to do with his life, had he been given a true choice. Lydia was a bit more of a myst

A story that leans more gaslamp fantasy than steampunk sci-fi, this story of Victorian-esque era orphans begins as a mystery full of hope and potential, but tendrils of horror creep in hinting that the promise and potential might have a more sinister side as well. Primarily Parker's story, he is largely driven by his need to protect and provide for Lydia. This is short and billed as a prequel - It felt like it ended just as the story was really getting started and interesting.

Timekeeper (Realm of Elestra Book 1), my first read from author Rebekah Dodson. Well written & enjoyable. Narrator Andrew McDermott’s accent was perfect for this book and added greatly to the listening enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it.

Timekeeper is a time travel mystery and a great start to the Realm of Elestra series. Great writing, an amazing storyline and interesting characters left me wanting to know more about Parker, Lydia, and the new realm. This book takes us on quite a journey full of twists, turns, drama, mystery, suspense and so much more. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

A really well written and fast read. This book was over before I knew it. I read it in a couple hours and now I’m ready to pick up the next book.

I love the steam punk elements that make this a cross between a fantasy and a historical novel.

Time travel and mechanical eyeglasses on pretty young men? Yes please!

WOW!

This was an enjoyable quick read that is enjoyable from the very first page. It moves along at a great pace which makes it a very nice read. The characters are great and you cannot help but fall for them and you want to know more about them.

This has to be read and this book is a nice introduction into the world of steampunk, which is a unique genre and very enjoyable.

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Rebekah Dodson; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

Short but intriguing. This book is a prequel to what I think will be an amazing story. Parker and Lydia grew up in an orphanage. The secrets they are given will take the two into a magical mystery. The author writes reader friendly books that are hard to put down.
