The Time Traveler Professor, Book Two: A Pocketful of Lodestones
In 1914, the war to end all wars turns the worlds of John Patrick Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Rebecca West and Harry Houdini upside down. Doyle goes back to ancient China in his hunt for that “red book” to help him write his Sherlock Holmes stories. Scott is hell-bent on finding out why his platoon sergeant has it out for him, and they both discover that during the time of Shakespeare every day is a witch-hunt in London. Is the ability to travel through time the ultimate escape from the horrific present, or do ghosts from the past come back to haunt those who dare to spin the Wheel of Karma? The Time Traveler Professor, Book Two: A POCKETFUL OF LODESTONES, sequel to SILENT MERIDIAN, combines the surrealism of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five with the supernatural allure of Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell set during WWI on the Western Front. • First Prize winner of the Chanticleer Review’s Paranormal Fiction Awards.

Assessment:

Plot: Crowens's novel is wildly imaginative and suspenseful. Readers will find themselves finishing the book in record time.

Prose/Style: The prose is crafted well, which makes the articulate plot flow nicely to an exciting ending. Chapters that are just letters are am an interesting stylistic choice, too.

Originality: Crowens's novel about time travel and a hint of spookiness is highly original. It starts off with a peculiar character named John Patrick Scott, who is just one of the many interesting people readers are introduced to.

Character Development: What makes Crowens's characters interesting to the end is the use of both real and fictional characters. Readers will love the courageous main character, John Patrick Scott.

A Pocketful of Lodestones is a head-spinning thrill ride through time, space, and history, featuring intrepid time-traveler John Patrick Scott, who is caught in the trenches of the Western Front, circa 1916. And it's a horrible, frightening, brutal and strangely beautiful place. But he has friends from other times and places, real historical friends in fascinating places, and they are part of the story, too. So suspend your disbelief, let your imagination loose, and follow Elizabeth Crowens, wherever she takes you. You'll be glad you did. Grand imaginative entertainment.
