Book Review: Time Keepers by Nicki J Markus

Time KeepersTime Keepers by Nicki J. Markus

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Set in London in the year 2025, Time Keepers is a futuristic novel set in a world where the existence of supernatural beings is accepted - and feared. The Government, on the other hand, wants to gain control over these creatures, and so starts rounding them up and keeping them in labs, where experiments and brain-washing is the accepted norm.

Nick is a werewolf who believes he has successfully slipped beneath the radar of detection, whilst Ellie is a Time Keeper (time-traveller) on the run from the government. The abilities of a Time Keeper are regarded as the most valuable prize of them all. However, it is when fate colludes to bring Nick and Ellie together that the real adventure, intrigue and danger begins to unfold. Ellie just wants to the do the right thing, whilst Nick has to come to the realisation that there is a lot more at stake than just saving his own skin.

Time Keepers is the "filled out" version of a series of four short stories published in 2011. Whilst characters, locations, and events have been developed in more detail, the premise remains much the same. A lot happens in this story, and it happens very rapidly, which makes this a quick and easy novel to read; although the ending is somewhat predictable, it is otherwise enjoyable.

3.5 stars.
