The Time Trap by Richard Smith
Earlier this year I won a copy of this book and although it's a children's book when the very professional looking paperback arrived I was intrigued by the cover and the blurb that I felt compelled to read it before passing it on to my son.
Here is my review on Amazon
5***** Superbly written and perfectly crafted to captivate the reader from the get-go!
I won this book in a giveaway and fully intended to give it to my son who, although no longer a child, enjoys anything to do with London where he now lives. The fact that there was a reference to a London trail that can be followed and time travel meant that I knew he would enjoy it. However, even though it's a children's book I decided to read it first as I was intrigued by the cover and the premise of time travel back to Victorian London. I really enjoyed this book! It is superbly written and perfectly crafted to captivate the reader from the get-go. The attention to detail which highlights the level of research that has gone into this book is commendable, and to see this in a debut novel leaves readers wanting more from this author in the future. I think it has many qualities which would create interest from readers of multiple genres given its historical, mystery and sci-fi elements. Congratulations on an excellent debut and I did pass the book to my son who also thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
