Book Review: A Time To Seek

About the Book:

Her Future Destiny is Hidden in the Ancient Past.

Sahara Aldridge, a young Egyptologist in 1922, is making a name for herself on the dig-site soon to become Egypt’s most sensational discovery—the tomb of the boy-king, Tutankhamun.

Despite opposition from a mostly-male profession, Sahara fights to continue the legacy of her Egyptologist parents, who died tragically at sea when she was a teen.

But then a childhood friend finds a lost journal written by Sahara’s mother, hinting at the bizarre possibility of time-travel, and a crazy suspicion forces Sahara to confront a freak incident years earlier…

Is it possible her parents were time travelers?

And has she inherited this mind-blowing ability?

When the American journalist Jack Moretti begins asking too many questions, Sahara suspects he knows more than he’s telling.

Did her parents truly perish in an accident? Or did someone target and murder them because of their time traveling gift?

There’s only one way to unearth the truth.

Sahara must travel back in time, to the days of King Tut.

But the biggest surprise is yet to come… the truth about her parents, and about her own destiny, discovered in the whispers of conspiracy around the death of Egypt’s most famous Pharaoh.

Now Sahara is careening through time, on a desperate search for the truth about her family.

But what secrets are better left buried?

My Thoughts:

I’ve never read a book by Tracey Higley that I didn’t like, and I’m pretty sure I’ve read everything she’s published. A Time To Seek is no exception. I loved it. The writing was excellent, the historical settings intriguing and the characters engaging. The specifics of the time travel rules and the history of Sahara’s time traveling family deepened my curiosity. It’s going to be hard to wait for July for the next installment. (Maybe the future author could travel back to this week and release it now?)

Seriously, if you like time travel novels, ancient Egypt or even historical fiction, I’d recommend Sahara’s journals to you. I’m looking forward to reading it again tomorrow when the finished and fully edited version releases.

I pre-ordered the book. I also received a pre-release galley to read in advance in exchange for my honest opinion.
