Shay Stephens’s book reviews

I have read Key Out of Time and it sparked my interest to read the first book of the series The Time Traders. I really enjoyed this book and to see the development of the characters.

They sure have a way of jumping from the frying pan and into the fire as the situation they are dealing with goes from bad to worse.

The main character Ross starts out unappealing, but once they go into the past, that is when things got interesting for me and held my attention to the very end of the book. I am now eagerly anticipating the chance to read The Defiant Agents to read more about their adventures in time.

Great book, I really enjoyed it.

Short and amazing. You really feel for all the characters in their new plight. I may even read the book again at some point.

A very good book, better than I was expecting. Smart and adventurous with very enjoyable characters. I am going to read the first book in the series now that my interest is piqued, The Time Traders.

The characters were all interesting and I especially enjoyed the addition of the two dolphins into the story. Very enjoyable.

It was short, but still felt complete. I enjoyed it a lot and hope to read more of this story as it continues.

I liked the mix of hightech and vintage and who doesn't love blimps!

The story doesn't take long to read but it is pretty good. The tight spots they get into and out of are interesting up to the end. I found the commander a little irritating, but in the end it seems true to his character. The captain was very interesting. And the mystery that develops has me wanting to read more of the authors books.

It was an enjoyable read.

I just finished this book last night, it was much better than I was expecting. I was on the edge of my seat through much of it. Filled with action, adventure, and courage, I was amazed at the journey and deprivations they endured. The discipline they held to especially on the part of the captain was amazing. A great story I would recommend to anyone.
