Legend of the Timekeepers (The Last Timekeepers, prequel) by Sharon Ledwith

Lilith was a young girl with dreams and a family before the final destruction of Atlantis shattered those dreams and tore her family apart. Now refugees, Lilith and her father make their home in the Black Land. This strange, new country has no place in Lilith’s heart until a beloved high priestess introduces Lilith to her life purpose—to be a Timekeeper and keep time safe.

Summoned through the seventh arch of Atlantis by the Children of the Law of One, Lilith and her newfound friends are sent into Atlantis’s past, and given a task that will ultimately test their courage and try their faith in each other. Can the Timekeepers stop the dark magus Belial before he changes the seers’ prophecy? If they fail, then their future and the earth’s fate will be altered forever.

Last year, I had the joy of reading The Last TimeKeepers and the Arch of Atlantis and I highly enjoyed it.  When given the opportunity to read Legend of the Timekeepers, I jumped at the chance.  It's a prequel to TLTATAOA, and I was excited to revisit the magical world that Ledwith has created.

Just as page-turning and nail-biting as I remember, Legend of the Timekeepers is sure to delight readers of all age.  The characters are easy to relate to and the young adult fantasy just comes to life as the story unfolds.  Lilith is an extraordinary character who I really empathized and cheered for as she found her place.  The story is only about a hundred and fifty pages, so it's a quick read.  A great companion novel to TLTATAOA! Highly recommend this novel if you love getting whisked away into a different time, a different world, even if for a short amount of time.

  1. Thanks so much for your support and kind review, Wendy! I'm so glad you enjoyed the prequel! Cheers!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
