Taj Carter is the kind of kid who has a good time, all the time. He’s the class clown. The best friend. The cool big brother. That is, until he wakes up on what’s supposed to be the first day of vacation only to find that his entire summer is gone!
But if that seems like a total nightmare, it’s actually the least of Taj’s worries. He discovers that the time didn’t just fly by, it was stolen. By time thieves! And now they’re after way more than just one kid’s summer break. They’re after all the fun on earth, and it turns out Taj is the key to getting it. He has a target on his back and not a moment more to lose. It’s up to Taj to find a way to get back his summer—and to save the world from falling completely off the clock.
Authors of the Shivers! series Annabeth Bondor-Stone and Connor White fiercely defend the right to have fun in the first book of their all-new action-adventure series, Time Tracers.
Interesting Take on "Time Flies"
Taj is confused when he wakes up to what's supposed to be the first day of summer break, but instead, it's the first day of school. He doesn't understand what's happened until he gets a visit from Eon who claims to be a Time Chaser. Eon claims that Taj's time has been taken by Time Thieves.
After going with Eon, Taj discovers that he's the Worm and is the only person who can return time through the Wormhole. The time thieves need fun time because boring time doesn't extend their life. It's up to Taj to get the time that was taken back.
TIME CHASERS was an interesting take on the saying "time flies" and I look forward to more books in this series. It was interesting watching Taj develop into his role throughout the book. Not only can he return time, but he also meets some cool people along the way.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to people who like action, time travel, and mystery.
