Book Review The Time Hunters by Carl Ashmore



The Time Hunters.
Here is what the book has to say about itself. 
Becky is a typical thirteen year old girl. She likes Facebook, gossiping and plenty of sleep. So when she and her brother, Joe, are invited to stay with their 'loony' Uncle Percy at his stately home, 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....

 
Here's what I have to say about it.
This was fun. It was a time travel book, and I don't usually read those, but I'm glad I did this one. The two kids, a brother and sister reminded me a bit of the relationship that the siblings in Fablehaven have. Loving, but still a little combative at times. The great uncle they go to live with during the summer seems a bit odd and eccentric, and the kids aren't all that excited about going to stay with him, but when they get there, they have a good time and discover he's got a couple time machines and they get to go with him on a couple trips.

Bad guys chase them through time while they are looking for the legendary "Golden Fleece", there are twists to common history where we find out the "REAL" story of things including Jason and the Argonauts, and Hercules. It's a fun interpretation of history. (though that's just a fun side story) Lots of quirky things and very fun.

The story is very British, and it took me a bit to understand their lingo and some of the phrases they used, but pretty soon I was totally into their world.
