34. The Book of Time by Guillaume Prevost

            This is the first book in a new J-level series that has been translated from French.  Samuel Faulkner is a fourteen-year old boy.  His father has been missing for ten days.  This is not that unusual, except that it is Sam’s birthday.  He returns home to look for evidence of where his father may have gone and finds a secret room in the basement.  In the room there is a book about Dracula and a weird stone sculpture.  Sam finds a ring that looks like it goes on the statue and his adventure begins.  Sam finds himself in Iona during a Viking attack.  He uses the stone to get out but still can’t find his father.  And how does the mysterious stone actually work?  This is a good beginning to the series but leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
