"Rosi’s Time" is the second installment in the 'Rosi’s Doors series' by Edward Eaton. The story of Rosi Carol continues where she dutifully learns to fulfill her role as the Guardian of Time. However, Uncle Richard’s antics often frustrate her to no end. Her skill is ultimately tested again when she and her friends are transported to a dangerous era in the past.

Without reading the first book, I was delighted that Book 2 was exceptionally readable as a standalone. I was still able to get the background stories on the characters and made some connection to Book 1. Even though this is young adult fiction, this book would do well with older people because unlike most of the YA authors, Edward Eaton put as much realism as he could in the story without crossing the line. The portrayed fighting scenes and injuries are rough; the relationships between the characters are not all sugar and spice but told in a pragmatic way. The wittiness of the dialogues is uplifting. Rosi Carol is an incredibly well-conceived female protagonist, with a good balance of talent, rationality, grit as well as emotive trait. I did enjoy her banters with her uncle. On the other hand, the description can be overpowering at times. Although I appreciate a good amount of details, it won’t hurt to let a fantasy fan like me to use my imagination at certain points. Nevertheless, this is an insignificant flaw and my rating is due to my fussiness.
