45. The Time Shifter by Cerberus Jones

This was the last book in the 5 pack I got from the book people. I shall have to buy the next in the series separately.

Synopsis (as taken from the back of the book) is as follows:

When Amelia and Charlie get caught in a time-loop at the Gateway Hotel, they are forced to live the same day over and over. Each loop brings them close to catching a suspicious alien visitor – but also closer to danger.

Can they stop time to save their lives?

Ability to read – Easy to read, easy to get into and easy to follow. I can’t fault these books in how easy they are to digest. Any eight-year-old would be able to read this easily.

Characterisation – This one was interesting to me because it primarily focuses on Amelia and Charlie being stuck in the loop and the other characters of the series are largely in the background, or not included at all. It was interesting to see how Amelia and Charlie fared on their own and how they worked together to get themselves out of the loop and save themselves as well as everyone in the hotel.

Visualisation – This was easy to visualise, not just because of the repeating scene pattern. By this point I feel as though I know the character’s quite well and can anticipate what they will do and how they will act.

Uniqueness – My only experience with time is reading Doctor Who fan fictions. This is obviously much different but I still found it uniquely captivating and a very well thought out story. I am excited to see where the series goes and what adventure will come next.
