In Seeker of Time by J.M. Buckler, when Elara Dunlin’s father accepts a new job in Texas, she could never have prepared herself for the events that were to ensue. Elara is convinced she is being followed by a mysterious man. He suddenly appears everywhere she goes and then vanishes into thin air. Elara's life gets even more complicated when she meets Cyrus on her first day at Woodward High School. She feels an immediate connection towards him and soon they are inseparable. Elara’s whole life and past are questioned as the elusive stranger finally introduces himself and gradually reveals why he has been following her. Everything she has ever believed about her life is thrown into question. The only person she can turn to is Cyrus, but will he believe her incredible story and accept her bizarre proposition?

I thought this was going to be an ordinary coming of age novel when I began reading this book. However, by the end of the first chapter I knew the curious stranger in the shadows was going to bring an interesting dimension to the plot, and I was right. The author has an excellent ability to build suspense and keep you engaged. The story line moved along at a great pace, introducing twists and turns which made for a very addictive read. The main characters had depth, and the dialogue throughout brought the whole story to life. The author has created a great novel that questions the world around us and what we believe to be true may not be. The ending truly left me wanting more and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, The Stillness Of Time.
