Time Quake by Linda Buckley Archer

Buckley-Archer, Linda Time Quake (Gideon #3), 440 p. Simon and Schuster, 2009. $17.99. Violence: PG. Kate and Peter are stuck back in 1763. Their travels through time have landed them on the wrong side of the continuum. Now Lord Luxon has control of the machine and he is determined to find a way to go back and stop the American Revolution in its tracks and win modern America for England. Meanwhile, the world is fragmenting into different time lines and Kate is starting to disappear – her grasp on time and life is quickly slipping away. Gideon and the Tar Man (his brother) will have to combine forces and do something really desperate in order to save the lives of the children they have come to love. Writing about time travel can get very confusing, but Buckley-Archer has done a very good job in this series of keeping the convoluted paths from becoming quagmires. While these books may never be the most used in your library, they are a solid addition to a larger collection with a strong fantasy clientele. EL, MS – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher
