Great read for my 6th grader
Getting my son to read is like pulling teeth. He is not a big fan of fiction....however, because the events in this book are based on actual history, he liked it very much. The narrator was a perfect choice as well. He'd like to read more by this author.

The book itself was fine BUT
This book ends in a cliffhanger. This would not be a problem if the other books were available; however they are not. You can purchase the sequels in book form but not in audio form. If you want to be left hanging by all means purchase this. For me; it was a total waste, as I don't read paper books any longer. Just Kindle and Apple, a format that these books are not available on. Oh well, a royal waste of time......

At the start of the book I got a bit confused due to a few things happening too quickly, but it didn't take me long to sort out the confusion. The story was good. I really liked the different points in history that he went to and the great detail involved. I was impressed with the attention that was given to even the smallest details when time travelling.
The narrator did an awesome job as usual. I have yet to find a better narrator than Holter Graham. He really made the characters sizzle for me.
There are quite a few intense, edge of your seat moments in this book. I really liked it and was so anxious for the boy to find his father.
My issue with the story that made me so frustrated, and the reason why I gave 4 stars for story and overall, is the ending. I was majorly disappointed with the ending!! First thing I did was to check if there was a sequel...did not find one. The ending leaves you hanging on what I thought to be a big piece of the plot. I'm hoping the author is planning another book to pick up where this one left off so that we can get a conclusion to what was left unresolved.
Yes, I really liked this book. Hated that such a big piece was left unresolved. I can only hope it will be resolved in the future.
