Synopsis: It’s been a year since Gabe, Marty, and Elizabeth’s last adventure, and Gabe is starting to wonder if Thrylos will ever summon them again. But then the magician himself shows up at the Lovejoys’ door one day, frantically summoning them in person to their biggest assignment yet. Not only will he be going along this time, but they will also need the help of other magicians and apprentices too. Their assignment: to stop an asteroid bound for 1908 London, the largest city on earth at the time.

The kids meet magicians and apprentices from all across time and space, teaming up with a trio from just ten years in their future. Gabe develops a crush on Eva, who teaches him more about their rival, the Evil Magician, whom Gabe learns is named Kakovoulos. Elizabeth makes fast friends with Eva’s younger sister Hope. Marty and the girls’ neighbor Joey become rivals, each helping the team at large figure out how to stop an asteroid with just the technology available in 1908… plus a few things they can easily steal from various different points in history.

It’s a race both through time and against time, taking the kids to medieval Scotland, to the forests of Russia, and of course into outer space as they attempt to save the world from the most devastating asteroid event in recorded history! But will they manage to divert the asteroid away from its course toward earth? Or will it still enter earth’s atmosphere, causing untold devastation?

Thank you so much to booksirens and C.A. Gray for the earc to read and review.

Review: This one felt so different to the other two books in the series. I was glad to see Thyrlos returning to assist the children. The story itself was interesting and a very very different mission to those in the previous books. 

Personally I felt like there was too many new people included on this one and the mission wasn’t very exciting, that’s me personally. I’m not into space or asteroids or anything like that so the topic wasn’t overly interesting in that respect, however the book was still interesting it was written incredibly well as always and had lots of educational value. 

I liked that they had a unique mission that was unsolvable by one team and that it was a big massive task. I did like that they made new friends too. The end of the book held lots of fascinating facts of all the research she had to do in order to bring this story to life, which I always appreciate being included you can learn so much from that. 

I loved getting a new book in this series, it’s such a creative series, has so much to teach and to learn from, is adventurous and fascinating, it’s always really fun and we still have a mystery to solve. I wonder what the next adventure will hold?

About The Author: C.A. Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies: PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends), THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology), and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that she’s interested in learning more about herself, and then creates lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it. Her stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual content, and she abhors depressing endings… but they’re not all kittens and rainbows either! She also listens to and reviews audiobooks on her website, here on Goodreads, on Instagram, and on her podcast, Clean Audiobook Reviews, where she also occasionally interviews other authors. 

By day, C.A. Gray practices naturopathic medicine, podcasts, and writes medical non-fiction under her maiden name (Dr. Lauren Deville). She lives in Tucson, AZ with her husband Frank, and together they maintain an occasionally contentious film review blog (under her real name: Lauren Baden. Three names. Yes.) She’s kind of the queen of multitasking—so in her spare time, she creates whatever meals or crafts she found most recently on Pinterest, drinks lots of coffee (Aeropress btw) and occasional wine (reds—and she saves the corks for craft projects), works out (while listening to audiobooks), and studies the Bible—about half of the podcasts on Christian Natural Health are scripture meditations.
