Publisher's Summary

Meet Rolland Wright - a 17-year-old orphan living out of his car in rural Woodland Hills, California. Aside from grappling with being abandoned by his drunken father two years previous following his mother's mysterious murder, his life mostly revolves around finding a warm place to sleep at night. When one day he is attacked by men claiming to have killed his father, Rolland discovers a strange ability to slow the flow of time around him, beginning a journey that takes him to places outside of time, space, and eventually to the early 19th century to fight the sinister General Andrew Jackson. With the help of a rag-tag group of historical and mythical figures with various supernatural abilities of their own (Joan of Arc, Jesse James, etc.) known as the Knights of Time, Rolland solves the mystery behind his mother's murder, falls in love, battles the evil Edward Vilthe, reaper of souls, and finds a home of his own in the paradise known as Eden.

    "Such an Awesome Adventure! "

    I didn't quite know what to expect with this one, but I took a chance and Brett Matthew Williams did not disappoint!

    There's just so much goodness I don't even know where to begin. This book is an amazing adventure ride for teenagers and adults alike. Brett uses this platform to address a number of societal ills and weak points as he takes us on a journey back and forth through time with a host of truly memorable characters.

    It's like a mixture of Twilight, Harry Potter, Night at the Museum, Indiana Jones and almost any other great fantastical body of work you've enjoyed over the decades and present day. Such vivid storytelling. I found my self feeling angry, sad (especially as we got to know the homeless kid's story), excited, scared and disappointed when it ended!

    Pick this one up for a great time-killer and a great trip down history's memory lane.

    "Awesome - my favorite book in a long time!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time to be better than the print version?

    I much prefer audio than print books - this one was awesome to listen to on the way to work and when out for a walk. It just suits my lifestyle better.


    What about Brett Matthew Williams’s performance did you like?

    A very engaging voice! Some narrators can be quite irritating to listen to, or even worse just plain boring but thankfully Bretts narration was great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to but it is definitely not possible as it is quite long (which is obviously a good thing), but that meant it kept me going for a few weeks. I have to admit I did have one day of sitting in my car outside my destination, waiting for another 25 minutes to see what happened next!


    Any additional comments?

    A very interesting story which kept me hanging on to see what happened next - a book about a boy who bends time and space to solve the mystery of his mothers murder would not be my usual thing I must admit, but this one kept me hanging on. Totally recommended!

    "Highly recommended!"
    What made the experience of listening to Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time the most enjoyable?

    The author did an amazing job with this book. The fact that the key character (Rolland) can time travel, gave the author much space to explore his imagination and creativity. Rolland is a young boy who is trying to solve the mystery of his mother's murder and on that journey he will go back in time and meet some historical and mythical figures with supernatural abilities. Together they will fight the malevolent general Andrew Jackson in the 19th century and try to defeat the ultimate evil responsible for his mother's killing. The story behind the book really stands out from the other books in the same genre and it is well written and structured. I have thoroughly enjoyed in this adventure and I highly recommend it!

    "An awesome book!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time the most enjoyable?

    I am a daydreamer, so even though I am in my 30's, I still LOVE to read or listen to a good fantasy novel. I don't usually recommend the audio over the printed version of a book, but this time I will make an exception, because the narration is so well done. The narrator's voice is simply marvelous and easy to understand which is important to me since I am not a native English. The audiobook itself is an amazing adventure, which involves time travel, battle between good and evil, revenge, love and realistic characters that are very well developed and likeable. I give it a 5 star rating!

    "Amazing ride"
    Where does Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best sci-fi fantasy novels I have listened so far. The story is very well structured, with loveable characters and a unique plot.


    What other book might you compare Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time to and why?

    The audiobook reminded me of many books that I have read previously, one of them for example is Harry Potter, because the story is about a very young boy with special powers.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when he realizes that he has the power to slow time was very exciting and intense.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audiobook to all the fans of the fantasy genre!

    "Creative plot and characters"
    What did you love best about Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time?

    I love the plot along with the characters. I loved meeting historical characters as Rolland went back and forth in time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the plot is a mix of princess bride, harry potter, clock stopers, Bill and Ted and a few others that randomly come to mind as you listen.


    What does Brett Matthew Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to interesting books read by a narrator with a clear easy to follow and understand voice. The way Brett Matthew Williams narrated and pronounced names were enchanting to me, I'm not sure I would have pounced things correctly so that adds to the experience.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No this book was far to long to listen to in one sitting. It's close to 15 hours. I did fall asleep listening to it before bed a few times almost like it was my dad reading me bedtime stories again. A nice adventure to send you on your way to dream land. I always ended up having to back track thinking back now what do I last remember happening.

    Story
    "A Coming of Age in Time"
    What did you love best about Time Is Relative for a Knight of Time?

    Something new, for a long time we have had vampires and zombies. Here we have a story of a young man coming of age and coming to terms with the powers over time and tries to use them to change the past whilst avoiding his nemesis


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rolland, gotta go for the hero of the story. Someone who has to change and learn the new life he now has and the responsibilities that go with, he learns fast and tries to do his best and thats what you want from any hero in the creation.


    What about Brett Matthew Williams’s performance did you like?

    He brings quite a breadth of depth from his voice, not adverse to putting a lot of drama and edge in his voice but knows when to slow down the pace to dramatic effect.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part he tries to save his mother, I will say no more
