Becky is a typical thirteen year old girl. She likes Facebook, animals and plenty of sleep. So when she and her brother Joe are invited to stay with their ‘loony’ Uncle Percy at his stately home, the mysterious Bowen Hall, she thinks it’ll be the worst summer ever.

What she doesn’t realise is that Bowen Hall is also home to a baby Triceratops, two Sabre-tooth tigers and the mythic hero, Will Scarlet… ‘The Time Hunters’ is a thrilling adventure that takes Becky, Joe, Uncle Percy and Will on a quest through time to find the legendary Golden Fleece. The Clock is ticking….

New one review witch 2017

‘Time Hunters’ is one of those books that takes up the exciting, yet not-so-used genre of time-travel and comes out triumphs.

I found the book to be very easy going and the storyline smooth. The presence of grey characters and shady plots is commendable and it’ll take you to put your Sherlock detective mode on to guess what will be happening next.

The story mainly revolves around Becky, her brother Joe and the adventures that follow them in the due course of time (pun intended). The novel is well-researched and the presence of known figures, creatures and artifacts throughout the book will make you connect easily.

Since this is a part of series, the climax ends well on cliffhanger and makes sure you want to grab on to the next part ASAP! Though it can be argued as a children’s book, I completely enjoyed reading it and strongly feel it’ll cater to all demographics.

About the Author

Carl Ashmore

I’m an independent author and am perhaps best known for my ‘Time Hunters’ series. I wrote the first draft of ‘The Time Hunters’ in 2006 when I took a year’s sabbatical to live in the South West of France.

I’m delighted with the success ‘The Time Hunters’ series has received. Not only has the series sold over a hundred thousands of copies on Kindle/paperback across the UK and the USA, but the reviews have been overwhelming.

I am currently writing a new novel entitled ‘Zak Fisher and the Angel Prophecy.’

I live in Crewe, England, with my partner, Lisa , my daughter, Alice, and my son, Will.

I also like Naan breads, blob fish and chives.
