Book Description

Jan. 11 2010
'Godstone - The Kairos Boxes' begins in present day England with 17 year old Jacob living at the home of his uncle in the ancient village of Godstone (Jacob's parents having disappeared some 15 years previously). While Jacob is occupied with the pursuit of his would-be girlfriend Rachel Isaacson, his uncle (Professor Ketterley) it transpires has been experimenting with time travel. All goes well at first. The seemingly unlikely means of time travel - the 'Kairos Boxes' work straightforwardly. However, this period of romance and 'time tourism' is to be short lived. They all soon find themselves trapped in the past. They encounter John Trenchman - a retired pirate who's grave they have already seen in a local graveyard in their own time. Some mysterious christian martyrs and the great Isaac Newton also cross their paths. As they seek to escape the time trap, their adventures offer up questions as to the meaning, power, and genesis of the Kairos Boxes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godstone; semi-historical time travel Oct. 25 2010
By Ronald W. Maron TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While I certainly will not degrade this novel as being second-rate, I do not rate it as highly as the other reviewers have. The theme of time travel is used frequently in this type of text and while it hints at characters who are semi-historical in nature, it does not have the riviting power in its presentation that other authors such as Tolkein, Gaiman or Rowlings have exhibited. The characterizations are good and well defined, the setting is quaint, yet compelling, and the ending does suggest future writings will be forthcoming. This is a good, not great, fantasy fiction that will give you a pleasurable afternoon reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godstone, The Kairos Boxes Aug. 1 2013
By F. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Interest wise, I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5, it's basically about time travel and the time travelers (teenagers & an adult) meeting a British pirate by the name of John Trenchman and their on going relationship with him among various other things. For those interested in parental guidance and Christian Fantasy I would rated it at morality-wise +1, spirituality-wise +1, no offensive material of note. It kept my interest all the way through the book and I was able to purchase it used for $4.
