Time travel has fascinated every generation from The Time Machine by H.G Wells to The Seeing Stone (Arthur Trilogy) by Kevin Crossley. The History Keepers: The Storm Begins by Damian Dibben takes time travel to a higher level. Imagine being able to visit your favorite decade or go back and meet famous historical figures. Would you want to see history as it happens? Would you want to change it?

The History Keepers: The Storm Begins, takes an ordinary boy, Jake Djones and plunges him into a dangerous yet fascinating world. He is snatched away by mysterious men only to be told his family belongs to a secret organization of time travelers who have dedicated their lives to protect human history. He discovers that there are evil forces at work trying to change the course of history. Jake’s parents are dedicated to the society. And now, Jake’s parents are missing somewhere in time. Jake may not have much time left to find them.

What makes The History Keepers stand apart from other books is the unique way Damian Dibben weaves historical context into the story. Instead of trying to change history, The History Keepers job is to protect it from those who wish to destroy it for their own motives.

This fast-paced adventure story allows the reader to be immersed in the historical time periods, especially Renaissance Venice without feeling like they are sitting in a history class. This is a book I highly recommend to readers of all ages and fans of action-filled adventurous, fighting –against all odds stories. Fans of Harry Potter, the Percy Jackson Series, and the Kane Chronicles will find this new series a wild adventure ride.

Good Points
- Face paced adventure plot
- Writing allows reader to be immersed in history not thrown at it
