Description:

Awkward in his own skin, shy around girls and worried about anything and everything, Jason Evans is just like a million other teenage boys in high school, with one very large exception: he has been given a gift that allows him to jump through time. A set of stones has fallen into his lap that gives him access to any place - and any time - that he chooses. But along with that gift comes the responsibility of stopping the man who is using those very stones to travel through time and change history for his own purposes. A man who is now holding Jason's grandfather hostage, and threatening the world's very existence. Jumping through time with his best friend and body guard, Jason must enter the world of Medieval England, learn its customs, navigate unimaginable danger, and help Henry VII win the Battle of Bosworth, in the name of finding his grandfather, rescuing a beautiful girl from the clutches of a corrupt church, and destroying the one man who pledges to turn history inside out.

My Thoughts: 

This book was incredible it follows the story of Jason Evans his friend Paul and his grandfather Doc.  When someone breaks into Jason's house and Doc doesn't seem too concerned about it, Jason knows something is wrong.  He does some investigating and learns about time travel and how Jason is connected to it.

When Doc goes missing it's up to Jason and Paul to find a way to get Jason's grandfather back even if it means traveling through history to do it. When they arrive in Middle Ages England Reis Jason's bodyguard, Tatina, who's father is trying to destroy history and Tatina wants nothing more than to see her father destroyed after the way he treated her and her mother, Katherine a woman from the middle ages in England who Jason felt compelled to bring with him, Paul Jason's friend from present day NH, they try as they might find Doc and run into a few bumps along the way, including having to use present technology i.e a iphone to confuse guards so they can escape.

This book left such an interesting cliffhanger about where they are headed next.  I really enjoyed meeting these characters and seeing where their journey is bring them.  Definitely a great book for fans of time travel and young adult.
