Sword of Time (Ancient Blades, #1) by A.M. Sawyer

This is a fantasy novel where in the world and time of science, magic makes its presence felt.

Luke, Bob, Tim, and James are four teenagers whose post-graduation plans in Australia are cut short when the Government accidentally unleashes an ancient evil. An old hermit guides them to a magical portal which takes them to a timeless temple. They realize that it is their destiny to defeat the evil that goes by the name of Kakos. Armed with magical weapons and aided by the likes of Lady For a, they come back to their world and start upon the way of their destiny.

The continuously progressing storyline has everything that a voracious reader can crave for… magic, time travelling, action, drama, romance and lots of twists and turns. There’s not a dull moment. The characters are quite vibrant and readers will easily be able to relate to them. They start off as very loud teenagers looking to have a good time. Their characters develop throughout the story and they mature through the various trials & tribulations faced. The author’s stimulating writing style is something that will grip you from the very beginning. With a little help from the plot, it will manage to keep you on the edge and keep turning those pages till the very end.

Time spent in reading this novel is time well invested. I would like to recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good fantasy novel.
