Praise for Melanie Bateman and The Time Key

“To change the past . . . to know the future . . . these ideas are not unusual in stories of time travel, but Melanie Bateman’s book breathes new life into these concepts through intriguing characters and compelling storytelling. The connections between people in the story are blended with the ideal amount of mystery and adventure, tragedy and triumph, that the novel is nearly impossible to put down. The Time Key is certain to resonate with and inspire readers everywhere.”

–Brett Jensen, author of the Relegated Trilogy

“Time travel is a fascinating yet confusing subject, but The Time Key weaves a brilliant and exciting story in such a simple way that instead of being confused you’re left wishing you were a time traveler yourself. Stanley Becker’s tear-jerker of a story has it all: tender family moments, exhilarating time travel, mysteries to be solved, strange creatures from other worlds, child-like imaginings, and a personal journey like no other. It’s like Gulliver’s Travels for a new age. I wish I had a Time Key!”

–C. Louis S., author of Pizza Planet

“Melanie Bateman weaves fantasy and mystery into a fusion of adventure. Her attention to detail and setting brings this new world to life. It’s a clever and heartwarming book that will arouse your life-after-death curiosity and have you eager to read about the possibilities. The classic tale and beauty of life and death springs out of the pages and into your imagination. The Time Key will have you wondering if the unseen can truly help us.”

–Erin Nelson, author of So You Got Boys, Do Ya?

“Melanie Bateman’s new novel, The Time Key, is an entertaining, fantasy-infused romp through space and time. She has artfully created compelling characters woven into an intriguing plot and storyline. I highly recommend this enjoyable read for anyone partial to the sci-fi/fantasy genres.”

–Kevin C. Scholz, architect, artist, and educator
