The Time Thief book two in The Gideon Trilogy by Linda Buckley-Archer, a book review

The Time Thief by Linda Buckley-Archer is a wonderful follow up to The Time Travelers. I enjoyed the first. You can read my review of it HERE. This second is even better. The way time is handled becomes increasingly complex. The treatment of the characters in the midst of the issue of what happens if people go back and forth in time is really interesting!

Perhaps my favorite character is the Peter lost in time. Though his feelings are at once simple and complex, they are easy to identify with and feel compassion for. Kate's predicament is more complicated and harder to comprehend because some of her greatest troubles arise directly from the process of traveling through time.

Buckley-Archer's characters in the past, though secondary, are enjoyable. In this book, my favorites may well be the Queen, and the French scientist. All of the characters are good, those are just my favorites.

My daughters have read this and enjoyed it very much. The whole of the story is easily appropriate for any age reader. There are some difficult subjects brought up in the course of the series. For instance, stealing and whether or not it is morally reprehensible when done to sustain life. It is my opinion that such subjects are worthwhile discussion topics between parents and their children. So, I'm completely comfortable with the subject matter in this series.
