Review - Patalosh: The Time Travelers

Patalosh: The Time Travelers
By Z. Altug and Tracy Gensler
Publisher: CreateSpace
Pub. Date: February 29, 2012
ISBN: 978-1463521332
Pages: 360


Authors Z. Altug  and Tracy Gensler have created an entirely new world in Patalosh: The Time Travelers. The ancient civilization of the Taloshians live on the island of Patalosh on the planet Lumina, where they built the HMS Exploricus airship that can time-travel through portals. They arrived at Earth and settle in Antarctica.

Ten-year-old Orion Spence lives aboard the airship. One day he wakes up to find that his dad (the captain) and his mother (science officer) have been kidnapped by the villain Emperor Daaggerd, who wants control of the HMS Exploricus and the Orion's family book titled Ancient Book of Spells.

Orion locates the first officer and the rest of the crew. He goes on a quest to rescue his parents from the evil Emperor's clutches.

When I first saw the pumpkins on the cover I thought the book would be set around Halloween, but to my surprise Patalosh: The Time Travelers is a well written science fiction tale with an original plot (no vampires or werewolves here). Though the book is aimed at kids, I think adults will enjoy Orion's adventure. Overall, I thought the book was cleverly written and I recommend it to other readers.

Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
