My Review:

Drawing on medieval mythology and neuroscience, Nemesis and the Vault of Lost Time is a gripping, action-packed page turner featuring a delicious blend of mystery, adventure and fantasy.

Max, a seventh grader who loves to daydream and sneezes a lot, stumbles upon a mysterious old handwritten book while helping reorganize his family bookstore. An odd-looking professor emerges out of nowhere urging him to study the manuscript and figure out the secret messages hidden inside. Max is thus made aware of Nemesis, a mythic world inhabited by creepy creatures and supernatural beings who conspire to steal time from humans for the purpose of extending their own lives. When told it's also the place where his missing father might be found, Max wastes no time searching for a way in. Will Max, in the company of his best friends Derek and Samantha, be able to shift to the secret dimension and destroy the vault where all stolen time is stored? Will they find Max's father? And more importantly, will they get back safely?

Thanks to its author's exceptional writing and storytelling skills, the book gets the readers hooked from the start. Told with carefully chosen words and witty metaphors, the story abounds in precise and vivid descriptions that make it easy to visualize each scene as if a movie were being played. The excitement of fast-paced adventure and the unpredictability of dangers lurking around keep the readers on the edge of their seats, gasping and guessing what the characters could encounter next.

Max and his two friends lie at the center of this story. They complement one another with humor, sensibility, courage and determination. Their unwavering friendship contributes a great deal to the charm and chemistry of the trio. Their quest may motivate young readers to value independence, creativity and teamwork. The underlying message about the preciousness of time and its close connection with life prompts us to rethink about how to use time wisely and how to live life to the fullest.

With reality and fantasy woven neatly together, Nemesis and the Vault of Lost Time is an immersive and captivating middle grade fiction that helps fuel the passion for reading and research.

About the Book:

Ages: 8+ | 234 Pages
Publisher: Philaments | ISBN-13: 979-8990031616

“…it’s hard to prove the world’s most important substance is missing when no one knows it’s gone.”

“Substance? What substance?” asks thirteen-year-old Max Kellerman. “Why time itself!” exclaims the strange professor who Max meets in the back of his uncle’s bookstore. In fact, he says, time is being sucked out of every living person by invisible thieves and stored away in a deep, dark netherworld.

Could the professor possibly be right… or just plain crazy?

It depends on whether Max can unravel the mysterious clues in the tattered manuscript the professor leaves behind. With the help of his best friends Derek and Samantha, Max begins a quest to find this dark realm and to discover its hidden secrets. But with the time clock ticking and the professor gone missing, Max uncovers a truth he never thought possible.

Max must unravel the mysteries of Nemesis to save not just his world, but the very fabric of time itself.
