A super fun time travel adventure can be found when you read, “The Lost Secret of Time: Crystal Keeper Chronicles Book 4” by Tiffany Turner. This is a fast-paced story that has you cheering for the main characters throughout the entire book.
In this 4th installment of the “Crystal Keeper Chronicles,” Wanda, a Crystal Keeper and helper to the fairy world, finds she is sent back in time to escape the evil sorcerer Balkazaar. But now she is trapped in 1983 and needs to find someone to help her get back to her own time. She is relieved to find other Crystal Keepers but is surprised at who these helpers turn out to be. Wanda must find out why the fairies have sent her back to this time and come up with a plan to stop Balkazaar once and for all. With sorcerers, dragons, and a telepathic cat, Wanda is in for the mission of her life.
I really liked “The Lost Secret of Time” by Tiffany Turner. The storyline of a time traveling girl who is a helper to the Fairy World, has a cat that can talk using his thoughts, and meeting a dragon and a unicorn guide, makes for a very exciting story. My favorite character would have to be Brewford, Wanda's cat-sorcerer friend. I think it would be great to have a cat that you could talk too, and in the story, he was always there to guide Wanda when she was in trouble.
My favorite part in the story was when the Crystal Keepers were trying to find Balkazaar’s anchor, which allowed him to travel between worlds. For this part of the story I wished there had been pictures so as you read along you could have searched for the anchor as well.
“The Lost Secret of Time: Crystal Keeper Chronicles Book 4” by Tiffany Turner is a great story and the series is great for kids who enjoy fantasy adventures. I look forward to more books by Tiffany Turner, especially if she continues on with Wanda when she is older, and she can help other Crystal Keepers.
