Legend of the Timekeepers {Book Review}.

When I'm contacted about doing reviews of anything, I get super excited. I get even more excited whenever someone wants to review a book! I love reading, as I'm sure frequenters of this blog already know. I received an email from Musa Publishing to review Legend of the Timekeepers by Sharon Ledwith, and after reading the description, I agreed to review it because it sounded like a fun adventure novel.

Favorite Character: She-Aba

Memorable Quotes:
"To disrespect another person was to disrespect yourself."
"There are no accidents. All is as it should be."

Book Summary from the Musa Publishing Website
There is no moving forward without first going back.
Lilith was a young girl with dreams and a family before the final destruction of Atlantis shattered those dreams and tore her family apart. Now refugees, Lilith and her father make their home in the Black Land. This strange, new country has no place in Lilith’s heart until a beloved high priestess introduces Lilith to her life purpose—to be a Timekeeper and keep time safe.
Summoned through the seventh arch of Atlantis by the Children of the Law of One, Lilith and her newfound friends are sent into Atlantis’s past, and given a task that will ultimately test their courage and try their faith in each other. Can the Timekeepers stop the dark magus Belial before he changes the seers’ prophecy? If they fail, then their future and the earth’s fate will be altered forever.
My Thoughts
Legend of the Timekeepers was a fast-paced novel that takes you to a world that many others have dreamed about before, Atlantis. I think the author did an amazing job describing the setting and the elaborate wardrobe of all of the characters.

The main character, Lilith was an admirable lead. She was average in many ways, but she had certain parts of her that were absolutely extraordinary. At the beginning, she is kind of shallow and narrow-minded having just left her Atlantis home to live in the Black Land due to the falling of Atlantis, but when the fate of Atlantis rests on her shoulders, she rises to the occasion and even surprises herself with her abilities. You see her grow throughout the book as she realizes her true potential.

One complaint that I have is that there are a lot of characters to keep up with. I know that that's my fault because I kept picking up and putting down the novel several times, and I would forget who certain characters were. The character names are so unique that I kept getting everyone mixed up and had to go back and read certain parts to remember who everyone was. I feel like I needed a cheat sheet in order to keep up. 

Something I wish there was more of in this novel was romance. Most of the YA novels that I read have a little puppy love that makes the novel more intriguing. This book was lacking in the romance department. There were two characters that I thought would have some sort of romantic entanglement, but it never happened.

My favorite part was the ending. I feel like everything came together in an unexpected way. There were several surprises that I couldn't have predicted. 


I give this book a 3 out of 5. I thought the plot was interesting and exciting, but at the same time, a lot of it was confusing. I feel like certain parts just needed some more clarification. I do think this novel would appeal to a younger audience, and they would enjoy letting their imaginations run wild with it.

  1. sounds like an interesting book. but when it comes to science fiction / fantasy, I'm a big Tolkien fan and most other authors fall short of his ideal. for me at least.

  4. Thank you for your review, Tiffany! Really appreciated your honesty and feedback. This was a hard book to write for sure, as it was the prequel to my series. Don't give up on Lilith and Mica just yet. I'm sure these first Timekeepers will show up in my series somewhere down the road. Fantasy is a tough gig, and believe it or not, this was my first full-out fantasy. The first book in the Last Timekeepers series is set during the middle ages, so it was much easier to research. Cheers and thanks again!

  5. I didn't realize this book was a prequel to your series! I'll have to go check out the series as well so I can see what happens to all of them. I can't imagine what is going on inside your head, because the creativity in this book was so unreal. The way you described everything - I think it would be amazing to see the book come to life. Thank you for allowing me to review your book!

  9. Haha yea. I've been getting some audio books too, which I love because I can listen to them when I'm getting ready in the morning and while I'm driving. There are so many books that I've been itching to read lately!
