YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: Time Quake - Linda Buckley-Archer


The catastrophic consequences of time travel are now impossible to ignore. Lord Luxon has set his sights on the ultimate prize: America, while, abducted to 1763, Peter and Kate begin to understand that history has arrived at a tipping point. Transformed into an oracle, Kate is able to see the future as easily as the past. Gideon does all he can to help, but he is tormented by the knowledge that The Tar Man, his nemesis, is also his brother. As they pursue him through the dark streets of eighteenth-century London, and the time quakes begin, Peter realises that this monster may hold the fate of us all in his hands.


As you’ve come to expect from Linda, a fast action packed adventure for the Young Adult reader and a fitting conclusion to the series as the characters face their toughest challenge to date. Interesting science backed up with a well rounded story really does make this something difficult to beat for its sheer size and scope. Well written, beautifully descriptive and to top it all an author that’s pretty hard to beat. Cracking.
