From Amazon - When Amanda Sault and her four classmates are caught in a major food fight at school, they are given the choice of suspension or yard duty. It was a no-brainer. A two-week crash course in landscaping leads the kids to discover a weathered stone arch buried in an overgrown backyard. Instead of a forgotten lawn ornament, it turns out to be an ancient time portal from the lost continent of Atlantis. Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers—legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from an evil force—the five children, along with two offbeat adults, are sent on the adventure of their lives to save the Earth from an uncertain future. The Timekeepers’ first mission lands them in England in 1214, where they must find an adolescent Robin Hood and his band of merry teens before history is turned upside-down.
What a fun book! Geared more toward middle grade than young adult, there is still something for everyone within these pages. There's a small child within us all and Ledwith does a wonderful job of bringing that forth. Chosen as the new Timekeepers - saving the world from evil, could be a daunting task, and at times it is, but the kids keep the momentum going and don't let the challenges get them down. They rise to it.
With zinging one liners, wonderful world-building and an adventure that captivate you, The Last Timekeepers sets the bar very high for the next book. With the plot of Altantis meets Robin Hood, Ledwith takes a surreal task and makes it into a reality that works very well. In fact, it's impressive. If you enjoy time travel, adventure or just a great read, pick up The Last TimeKeepers and the Arch of Atlantis! Well recommended to all ages!
