“A spooky and breathtaking adventure. Christopher Edge takes the reader on an unforgettable journey.” – Ross Welford, author of Time Travelling with a Hamster

“Rarely does an author have the courage to explain the metaphysics of time with crystal clarity in a book pitched at children as young as eight….You’ll scratch your head and need to read it all over again right away, but double science has never been so much fun.” – Alex O’Connell, The Times

“A heart-stopping adventure with thrills and twists, codes and puzzles, underpinned by an intense evocation of the natural world and an intriguing exploration of the concept of time.” – Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

“It isn’t every day that a novel for 8- to 12-year-olds reminds you of TS Eliot’s Four QuartetsDante’s Inferno and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey… Charlie’s story is also a rare thing, a novel that will be enjoyed by those who don t usually like fiction. Time will fly as they read it.” – Tony Bradman, The Guardian
