Kurzbeschreibung

17. Dezember 2012
Elizabeth is a practically normal fifteen-year-old. She goes to movies, teases her brothers, and belongs to a secret group of magic-wielding time travelers. When the rules that govern time travel are broken, chaos ensues, and it is up to her to restore the Timelaws. As rivaling Wizards and Darks scramble back and forth through time to claim victory in an ancient war, her past changes, and so does her memory of it. If Elizabeth can’t make sense of the mayhem, her home, her family, and the universe will be destroyed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen time jumping action-packed fantasy 23. Februar 2013
Von Wendy L. Hines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
History of the Timelaws is one of those books that grabs you from the very first page and doesn't let go until after the exciting conclusion. With a great cast of characters, the story stays fresh and entertaining. Liz is determined to restore the timelaws so that her world is set straight. However, it's not that simple. First, she'll have to go head to head with the evil wizards that changed it to suit their own needs first.

With fantasy, supernatural elements and modern youth, History of the Timelaws is a time jumping action-packed fantasy that I hated to put down. I found myself entranced in the story and invested with the characters and their plight. If you enjoy young adult books with twists, turns and lots of action, pick up History of the Timelaws!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fast, fun magical romp 29. Januar 2013
Von Kevis Hendrickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the things I love about books is when you cease to realize that you're reading a story and that you've been sucked right into the world the author has created. History of the Timelaws reminds me why it's such fun to lose oneself in a book. What also endears me to the book is that it's not easy to categorize. History of the Timelaws contains elements of urban fantasy, science fiction, and Young Adult genres all wrapped up in a tight, neat little bow.

The story is pretty straightforward. Evil wizards have broken the rules that control time and our heroine Elizabeth, or Liz, for short, has to find a way to restore the "Timelaws" or the universe and everyone she holds dear could be destroyed.

As I said, this is a straightforward story. However, there's a lot going on at times in the story. So you'll have to pay attention to keep up. One thing I like about this book is that the story doesn't waste any time getting started. There's lots of action and adventure elements to keep the reader turning pages throughout its unique plot.

This is the updated and improved version of an older version which I read. If you're looking for a fast, fun read with plenty of magic and action, I highly recommend checking this one out.

4 Stars for an intriguing plot with interesting characters.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Imaginative wild ride 22. März 2013
Von A Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Unlike most teenagers who seem, at one time or another, to think they're having a bad decade, Elizabeth, the heroine in the History of the Timelaws, takes most of normal life in stride. She probably has to, since in 1981, at 15, she's already been orphaned and has her mind on bigger things, like jumping ahead in time to 2184 and wielding her considerable magical powers to save the world from evil wizards. When the future Timelaws are broken, disastrous changes put Liz and everyone she loves at risk, and she can't even be sure what changes the breaks have created, and how much she can trust her memory.

That paradoxes and alternate timelines as history is changed are a good part of the fun of this time-tampering story, although they can necessitate some convoluted plotting when the characters are in the middle of it. For the most part History of the Timelaws keeps it comprehensible, but it's not easy when the action is fierce and changes are happening at a rapid pace.

Liz' story, which Liz herself narrates, is further complicated by her relationships with her two (nonmagical, 20th century) brothers and her boyfriend who happens to be her subordinate in the chain of command of the magical Darks. A few aliens are thrown in as her allies, since the Dark/Wizard conflict is universal.

I enjoyed almost all of this imaginative wild ride back and forth through time. Liz is a thoroughly believable and likeable character with a highly developed sense of responsibility, a trait I especially value. The action scenes are credible once the reader accepts the premise of magical powers. And the relationships between Liz and her brothers rang true.

There are a few editing issues that I'm sure will be resolved with time.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes YA fantasy and time-travel fiction.

I received a gift copy of this book in exchange for an honest, non-reciprocal review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Timey Wimey Fun 26. Februar 2013
Von Rob May - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
History of the Timelaws starts with a teenage time traveller Elizabeth's hectic battle against flying wizards on an errupting volcano on an alien planet, then abruptly switches to Liz's domestic hassles in 1980s New York City. But then suddenly she's teleporting off to a spacestation, before magically morphing into a bird to attempt to gain access to a impenetrable fortress ...

It's a credit to the author that she manages to control the narrative not only with believability, but with no small amount of humour too. We see the story unfold filtered through the street-smart worldview of heroine Liz, who despite only being fifteen is not remotely phased by alien dragons, telekinetic leprechauns, or even scientists from the future who like to hit on her boyfriend. In fact, Liz holds a position of command within the group of freedom fighting time vigilantes known as 'Darks'.

History of the Timelaws is the second part in a planned trilogy, and although it is designed to be read as a stand-alone adventure, it does have that feel of being dropped in the middle of an ongoing saga. But you're soon brought up to speed as you read on, as the book's detailed plot reveals exactly what these 'wizards' really are, and how the laws of time and space are threatened by them.

As you might expect, a time travel adventure is going to have its share of paradoxes and twisted timelines, but History of the Timelaws ups the ante even further by giving Elizabeth the ability to split herself in two, and be in two places and in two times at once. This great innovation sets up a climax that simultaneously takes place in the alleys and streets of NYC and also in the middle of outer space.

Criticisms? Liz's family and personal dramas were a lot more interesting than some of the more abstract action that took place in the middle of a bubble-like time spell, and I sometimes found myself wanting to skip ahead. However, the contrast between the various (literally) far-out and down-to-earth situations is what makes this book fun.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sisters and Time Travel Fun 2. März 2014
Von Roger P. Royer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
First off let me say that this book was better than book one in the series and not because of the editing though that was an amazing improvement. I think the book was better because it was much more character focused when it came to our hero. She has developed her to a truly emotional being over the person in the first book that could watch thousands die without a thought. The author even allows us to see how the death of others affects people near our hero when she herself is so emotionally distant that she feels nothing.

I will also say that the theories behind this book are interesting and have some scientific basis though with the fantasy aspects making it seem like a fun mix of both worlds. I was very fond of the fact that she mentions spagettification as one of the problems they have to deal with even if it was used in a place where it is unlikely to happen though the theory is so new that one never knows. I am glad that Marise Ghorayeb has done at least some research into the science behind the theory of time travel as we know it today.

As for the bad, I still think that some of the supporting cast could use better backgrounds and more emotions. They just seem to be "there" to me as needed for plot movement and heroic rescues. I think one way to work on this might be to write the story from one or more of their viewpoints as an exercise to see how they would react and feel in certain situations. For instance, I understand how Luke reacts at the end of the book but I want to know why he acts that way. It has to be more than it is at the moment. It is almost like Elizabeth expects him to act that way and so he does.

Overall a very good read and I would recommend it to people that enjoy fast paced fiction and sci-fi/fantasy books. I know that I enjoyed reading it
