I agreed to write this honest objective review and received a complimentary pre-release copy to do so. It is the first Tyler Scott Hess book I have read.

The story changes time and place every few chapters, some chapters revealing 10-year-old Jack’s life working on cleaning up the attic while missing out on some of his family’s Christmas activities and being fascinated by the treasure map and letter. Other chapters take us into the time and place of the treasure map and letter where the Faithful

With the Christmas season right around the corner, there will be plenty of Christmas books hitting the shelves. But there has never been a Christmas story quite so unique or different as Tyler Scott Hess’s The Treasure Map.

When I saw the cover reveal for this book, I thought it was an autumn-ish story, but then I reminded myself that Hess is obsessed with Christmas. Like, a bit over-the-top obsessed. Not that I’m complaining. And it turned out, it was. But, I guess you could say that The

Jake Monroe was like any typical 10-year-old around Christmas time; snowball fights and sledding with his friends enjoying the season in anticipation for presents and family traditions. Unfortunately for Jake, his report card showed up as well, and the punishment he received was much different than any he had before in Author Tyler Scott Hess’s, “The Treasure Map.”

Jake could not believe he was given the task of cleaning out the attic in their family home that had been passed down to them from

Was it possible for an escaped convict to be a hero? That's the question asked by a boy who finds a map in an old trunk in the attic. Cleaning up the attic during Christmas break was punishment for less than stellar grades, but leads to a challenging mystery from an earlier time, connected to the boy's ancestry. Boys and girls alike will be intrigued by this well-told and suspenseful story.

The author, Tyler Scott Hess, is also fun to follow on Instagram.

This was a pleasure to read and discover the world that Jack falls into! I think this author did a great job of switching between Jack and Niko and how Jack keeps it going. Loads of action and details of a different world that will keep you turning the pages. Definitely will leave you thinking deeply about the meaning and pondering the lessons we can learn from it all! It felt like an allegory to me and I enjoyed the message. A wonderful creation!

I enjoyed reading The Treasure Map.
The characters are wonderful and the story filled with imagination. I love how Jack discovers the pages that transport him to another time. The story moves back and forth between Jack and Niko and I found it hard to put down to find what happens next. There is a good message about family, friendship and faith. I highly recommend this book for all age groups.


This objective review was based on a complimentary pre-release copy.

There's something about a group of people with different personalities, many quirks, and various skill sets banding together with a common goal. There's bound to be tension, and sometimes even traitors, but there's also a bond that only comes from putting one's life on the line for each other, and this camaraderie enabled the fugitives who have a leading role in this book to take on what seemed nearly impossible to accomplish. I loved the message of teamwork, and that everyone has unique ...more

If you're looking for an action packed thriller that is perfectly clean and yet super intriguing, this is the book. Tyler Scott Hess is the author. I barely had the chance to read the title of the book before being sucked, mind and all, into the story. The characters were well fleshed out. Written full of mystery, with intrigue, good values and lessons, nail biting suspense and a dash of dystopia; this book was a page turner from the very start. This dual timeline masterpiece is sure to captures ...more
