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.

    Where Would U Go Back In Time?

    • I'd go to the swingin' '60s baby!
    • I'd go disco in the '70s.
    • The '80s looked pretty fun.
    • I'd go back to when there were pirates, mate!
