About The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis:

When 13-year-old Amanda Sault and her annoying classmates are caught in a food fight at school, they're given a choice: suspension or yard duty. The decision is a no-brainer. Their two-week crash course in landscaping leads to the discovery of a weathered stone arch in the overgrown back yard. The arch isn't a forgotten lawn ornament but an ancient time portal from the lost continent of Atlantis.


Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers--legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from the evil Belial--Amanda and her classmates are sent on an adventure of a lifetime. Can they find the young Robin Hood and his merry band of teens? If they don't, then history itself may be turned upside down.

My Review: While this book is marketed for a younger audience, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and don't feel the writing or the content are too "childish" to appeal to an adult reader as well.  The plot of this series gives the author the chance to not only give us her view of Atlantis, but to use time travel to introduce young readers to various historical/legendary events or people. In this introductory book, the teens get to meet Robin Hood and his friends.

The "timekeepers" are a highly varied group, which added to my enjoyment. The five students are not friends as the book begins, and in fact can barely stand one another--I learned some new, creative insults from them! The two adults, a teacher and a the uncle of one of the students, are not exactly mainstream, either. But the seven of them begin to see each other in a new light as they display talents which, when combined, make them a strong team and help them reach their objectives.


Looking forward to future installments in this series.
