Read full description of the books The Timekeeper:
The story is simple and yet complex. The characters are the sorts one can relate to - with the fantastical spin attached. For the targetted age-group, I think it's a solid piece of work...but upon reading it, I find it far too short.
By short, I mean two things: short in length (because the crux of the story takes place in the space of two hours and not a whole lot, action wise, happens there - liken it to losing a little sibling in the crowd with a very brief dimension-travel spiel and that's pretty much what you've got) and short in keeping my attention because I read most of this while engaged in a phone conversation. Which means the story wasn't gripping me awfully tightly.
I think my main reason for feeling like that is that things fit together too neatly. It was too linear - and that made it quite predictable. Whenever a problem came up, immediately there was a way to resolve it. Perhaps the most interesting resolution was the one where Doon threw off her rings to create an opening - and that is the bulk of what I took away from this fic.
I think if I read it twelve years ago, I would have loved it. Now that I'm older and I've read Rodda's Deltora Quest, Rowan of Rin, Three Doors, Teen Power Inc. and Rondo books... I find this one short and relatively sweet but missing the something that'll make me revisit it.
