Review: The Time Key by: Melanie Bateman

Title: The Time Key
Author: Melanie Bateman
Publisher: Sweetwater Books
Pages: 320
Format: e-book ARC
Source: Book Tour


When Stanley saves a man, he's given a mysterious device that allows him to travel through time. But he soon learns that changing his past doesn't necessary lead to a better future. Traveling over 100 years into the future may be the only way Stanley can change his fate and save his family.

My Thoughts: 

This book starts out with a very depressed Stanley wanting to die and be with his wife and daughter who died a few years prior and unable to get the gun to shoot him, he stumbles upon a mugging and helps a stranger who leaves something with him unbeknownst to Stanley.  What does this mysterious item do?  Will it help Stanley get over the death of his loved ones?  Will he finally be able to leave earth to be with them?

Not long you find out the mysterious tranger Stanley helped is Luis and he comes back and retrieves something out of the time piece a vial and leaves Stanley again.  Stanley finds himself with more questions than answers.

This book was a great adventure with twists and turns and I found I couldn't put it down.  The book is written back in time and the details she includes are definitely accurate to what we know of the time period.  I enjoyed being with Stanley to see how he deals with The Time Key.  Definitely a great book for those who love time travel!
