Sam’s father has always been a bit odd, and in the years since Sam’s mom died, his dad has become even more unpredictable. It’s not unusual for Sam’s dad to disappear for a few days without warning, and as The Book of Time kicks off, Sam figures his missing father is on another of his spontaneous travels. It turns out Sam is half right: his dad is travelling – time travelling. In search of his father, Sam sets off through the ages, visiting medieval Scotland, World War I France, ancient Egypt, and even Dracula’s castle. Actor Holter Graham delivers stunningly versatile character acting, personifying wounded French soldiers, ancient Egyptian thieves, and vicious vampires. Graham’s gift for storytelling is underscored by his emotional authenticity and suspenseful pacing.

This book was a lot of great fun, with an excellent story line with some mystery to it. This is one that would be great for all ages! Well worth a download!
Getting my son to read is like pulling teeth. He is not a big fan of fiction....however, because the events in this book are based on actual history, he liked it very much. The narrator was a perfect choice as well. He'd like to read more by this author.
This book ends in a cliffhanger. This would not be a problem if the other books were available; however they are not. You can purchase the sequels in book form but not in audio form. If you want to be left hanging by all means purchase this. For me; it was a total waste, as I don't read paper books any longer. Just Kindle and Apple, a format that these books are not available on. Oh well, a royal waste of time......
