Don’t miss K.L. Horvath’s compelling time travel fantasy with talking beasts, iron monsters, otherworldly creatures and a desperate father!
For centuries the great Houses of Time have watched over the mythical creatures, those who manipulate the past for their own ends and humankind. But now the houses have dwindled and few are left who remember the mandates. One, in fact, is determined to put the world in its proper place—beneath his rule.
To do that, he’s kidnapped Jack Lyons, the youngest of the Time Travelers. And to get him back and defeat Bliss, Lord Aralias Lyons, Jack’s father, will do anything he has to. He’ll fight wicked spiders, an army of clockwork men, let his son suffer and manipulate time itself in order to right what Bliss has put wrong. He’ll even allow the innocent Miss Clara Heartwell to discover more about the Travelers than most mortals know.
Through secret and deadly deals with dragons, battles back in time and with Jack himself, Aralias has to think smarter, act faster, and be more decisive. Because in the end, saving Jack is all that matters …
What a wonderful, imaginative story! The Undays of Aralias Lyons was unlike anything I have ever read before, while still managing to be the type of story that will appeal to a wide range of fantasy lovers. Jack Lyons is the youngest time traveler, which also made him the easiest target for those who weren’t happy with the status quo. And once you add Aralias and Clara to the mix, things only get more fun from there.
Now, we can’t talk about this book without mentioning that stunning cover. I think I would have recommended this book for our catalog without ever having read a single chapter, if it had come down to that. There’s no way fantasy readers won’t be picking this one up just to see if the story inside matches the quality of the cover… and it does!
K.L. Horvath is a new author to the fantasy scene, but one that I expect we’ll see a lot of great things from in the coming years! There were a few points where the pacing dragged a little, but never enough to tempt me into putting the book down, and the excellent world building more than made up for any lagging moments.
