“The hands of time turn on the face of the sun. Only you can move them. If the Watcher controls the hands of the clock he can go anywhere, past or future-- and destroy our planet.”
Since the days of ancient Greece, the Argos dynasty has kept a secret, a mystery passed down through their descendants from generation to generation, in the hopes that the forces of good can stop the evil destruction of planet Earth.
Margaret Ingall is harboring that secret. Time is running out for the descendants of the Argos. They know a great healer and time traveler will be born of their blood. But the only person that knows whom they will call “the soul of the sun” is Margaret’s sister, Abigail. Before she can reveal the healer’s identity, disaster strikes…
Evil stalks them, watching and waiting to find out which member of her family has the ultimate power. Is it Margaret’s own child? Or her beloved granddaughter? Or even herself? Their only clue is a powerful protective amulet that will lead them all in a cat-and-mouse game to discover secrets as ancient as time.
If the Watcher discovers the truth before they do, all will be lost.
Fate, time and love weave together in their struggle to fulfill their destiny. Will Margaret’s fears sabotage her family’s protection? Can the healer accept her gifts in time? And once the soul of the sun is finally revealed, will it be too late?
Her power is incredible. The sacrifices required of her are immense.
Will it be enough to stop the Watcher?
For a first book in the Argos Dynasty series this was a really enjoyable read. The ending of the book really opened up the plot to draw the reader to anticipate the next book in the series, which I for one cannot wait for. The author did a wonderful job moving from time period to period in smooth transitions so you did not have the abrupt ending I have found with other books that attempt to do this.
This book is packed with action and adventure that covers several generations of a very unique and intriguing family. The book is a fantasy book so of course there is magic and some time jumping that draws you in as well. I really enjoyed the Watcher character the best. I am normally not a big fan of this genre, but my daughter is and I was glad that I picked this book up to read with her. I recommend it to anyone that simply enjoys a good story with lots of action, plot twists and magic.
