Meet Rolland Wright - a 17-year-old orphan living out of his car in rural Woodland Hills, California. Aside from grappling with being abandoned by his drunken father two years previous following his mother's mysterious murder, his life mostly revolves around finding a warm place to sleep at night. When one day he is attacked by men claiming to have killed his father, Rolland discovers a strange ability to slow the flow of time around him, beginning a journey that takes him to places outside of time, space, and eventually to the early 19th century to fight the sinister General Andrew Jackson. With the help of a rag-tag group of historical and mythical figures with various supernatural abilities of their own (Joan of Arc, Jesse James, etc.) known as the Knights of Time, Rolland solves the mystery behind his mother's murder, falls in love, battles the evil Edward Vilthe, reaper of souls, and finds a home of his own in the paradise known as Eden.

Such an Awesome Adventure!

Awesome - my favorite book in a long time!
I much prefer audio than print books - this one was awesome to listen to on the way to work and when out for a walk. It just suits my lifestyle better.
A very engaging voice! Some narrators can be quite irritating to listen to, or even worse just plain boring but thankfully Bretts narration was great.
I wanted to but it is definitely not possible as it is quite long (which is obviously a good thing), but that meant it kept me going for a few weeks. I have to admit I did have one day of sitting in my car outside my destination, waiting for another 25 minutes to see what happened next!
A very interesting story which kept me hanging on to see what happened next - a book about a boy who bends time and space to solve the mystery of his mothers murder would not be my usual thing I must admit, but this one kept me hanging on. Totally recommended!
