Time Stealers: Time Keepers Chronicles 1 by P. Clauss is an intriguing novel about a group of people who call themselves the Time Keepers. They have the gift of being able to see the time wraiths, the name they give to beings that live in antique clocks. The story unravels at the clock shop belonging to Grant, himself a Time Keeper, where he is attending to some customers. Just before closing time, Charlotte enters his shop and asks him strange questions. What follows is a series of events that reveal to Grant and Charlotte that these time wraiths that can alter our perception of time may be manipulated in such a way that the economy, government, finances, and society itself could collapse. The Time Keepers have to work together to find the vault controller and prevent this from happening.
Time Stealers by P. Clauss is a fast-paced and original novel that introduces us to small, mysterious creatures that live in antique clocks, stewarded by the Time Keepers. The suspense starts immediately when a devious plan is revealed that could destroy human society as we know it. I found the characters to be highly interesting and unusual. The story’s twists and turns are logical and easy to follow. The villain is a character that is easy to hate so readers will find themselves rooting for Grant and Charlotte. This novel is a page-turner because so much is at stake. Clauss is one of those authors with a fertile imagination and the talent to weave a believable story that is thrilling up to the end. Highly recommended.
