Time Crasher's: Viking Attack

Ethan Conway’s father has disappeared. Ethan has a pretty good idea of what has happened to him, but he needs the help of his two friends, Jake and Spencer, to search for him. Ethan’s father is a scientist who has invented a time travel machine. He had tested it several times by sending objects and animals back into time and retrieving them. Now that his father is no where to be found, Ethan suspects he has traveled back in time on his own and might need help coming back.

Time Crasher’s: Viking Attack, written by H. Michael Brewer, is one of those stories where the reader gets to determine the ending. At the end of each section in the story, the reader must make a choice as to what should happen. The first choice that must be made is whether or not Ethan will use the time machine to try to find his dad. If you choose no, the story ends right there. The other choice allows Ethan to follow his dad and the reader gets to determine what happens next. Ethan, Jake and Spencer use their faith to guide them through their adventures. 

Black-and-white cartoon-like pencil sketches are scattered throughout the text, some full-page, most not.

What I Like: This is a fun book, well-written with lots of action and lots of choices for the reader to make. As one reviewer wrote, their son had read the book 15 times and still enjoyed it. 

I also like the riddles and tidbits the author has inserted at the ends of some of the chapters. They provide food for thought as well as Bible-based activities related to the story.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 8-12.
