Keeper of the Black Stones
Jason Evans, a shy, introverted high school freshman, thought that his mundane life was all there was – girls, golf, physics, and the occasional bully. Until he found out about the secrets his grandfather had been keeping from him … a set of stones that allowed them to jump through time … a maniacal madman who used the stones to shape history to his liking … and Jason’s role as one of the few people in the world who could stop that man.
Against impossible odds, a fourteen-year-old boy must take up his legacy, learn everything he needs to know within one short day, and travel helter skelter into the Middle Ages, to join Henry VII’s fight against Richard III, end the Dark Ages, and stop the man who now holds his grandfather captive. In this romp through history, Jason and his friends must race against time to accomplish not one, but two missions.
Save his grandfather.
And save the world.
This was a very interesting book. I love Nerds and Twists, and this book gave me both!
The build up starts right at the prologue and the story itself was NO let down!
Jason is a nerd, and a SMART one at that. Then you add his best pal Paul...awesome! The two of them hold a bond like brothers, each with their own personalities which adds to the over all story.
Then you have Nicholas....talk about evil villain!!! The man will do anything to achieve his goals.
The twists come at you early on.....travelling through time there's know telling what's next.
History is at your fingertips.....don't fret if you end up learning something cool about the past.
Mr. McHugh definitely made his mark on this reader. With such well developed characters and a story that is beyond AWESOME, I look forward to seeing what else comes from his mind!
