In The Book of Time you watched Sam Faulkner uncover the gateway into the past. Now join Sam as he continues his search through time to find his father in The Gate of Days.


An Innocent Thief

Sam’s father is missing, but not in this life time. A few months ago, Allan Faulkner used a magic stone statue to travel back in time to steal some ancient—and priceless—artifacts. Sam’s father isn’t a natural born thief, but when he can’t make his mortgage payments, he’ll take any financial opportunity he can get.


The Days of Dracula

Now that he understands how the statue works, Sam travels back in time hoping to find the seven coins that will give him control over where he travels in time. That way he can go directly back to 1462—the year of Dracula—instead of winding up at random moments and places in history. Allan Faulkner is trapped in the dungeons of Dracula’s Castle, and only Sam can rescue him.


Almost Deadly Encounters

Sam and his cousin Lily survive many dangers as they bounce around in history—prehistoric beasts and cavemen, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, and a vengeful set of gangsters. They even meet their grandfather at age six! Somehow Sam must save his father and return home before The Gate of Days shuts forever and traps them in the past.


The Bottom Line

The Book of Time series offers great climactic moments and dangers from which escape seems impossible. The Gate of Days is perfect for history buffs. And one great thing about the novel is that it appeals to both males and females; it has constant action and adventure, as well as inner turmoil surrounding a childhood crush.

Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional. Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV). My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with. Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.  I'm sorry I found your comment rude. This post is not just about mental illnesses, and mental health is a universal thing that requires you to take care of yourself because you can't always see professionals because their isn't always easy access to them. Which is all clearly stated in the post. If you say something again on this post that's rude it will be reported I'm not sure what you mean by "rude". I mean, you found what I said to be rude, but you gave no reason why. If I don't know how to accommodate for your standards of rudeness, I feel like I'm doomed to repeat my trespass.  So, how exactly was I being rude? Your very first sentence. Yes its suppose  to be saracastic, but not everything has to be answered with as a joke, because some people take offense to it.
