Review by: Scott
The Time Hunters by Carl Ashmore is a YA time travel tale. Becky and Joe are two kids who are spending their holiday with their Uncle Percy. They haven't seen or had anything to do with him for years since he and their dead father had an argument. Becky of course is expects the worst from living with a strange Uncle who is supposed to be an inventor and is known to be a bit eccentric. Joe has less reservations and is actually a bit excited.
Neither of the two could ever expect the amazing things that they will encounter with their Uncle. There are a lot of parts of this book that are a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the strange twists that some popular characters ended up taking. Jason and the Argonauts had an especially amusing twist. Will was another great character and I was happy to see that he had a significant role in the story. Carl also wrote a compelling plot that has me interested in seeing where the rest of the series goes.
