What Robert James says about Tomorrow’s Guardian:
‘Richard Denning, … keeps the action fast and furious for the 400 or so pages of the book. Diving in and out of time, and in and out of the Twisted Reality (the other universe), there’s never a dull moment as the inevitable confrontation with the evil Redfeld, villain of the piece, comes closer and closer.’
‘I recommend it to readers around Tom’s age, many of whom I confidently expect to absolutely love it. ‘

I recieved Tomorrows Guardian on Thursday and my youngest James (10) and I are reading it together. It’s causing bedtime issues in that he wants to read more than time allows.
Great story. Sue Rankin

Teens will love this book because they can relate to Tom who is their age and very believable. Since Tom is from another country, the reader has a chance to travel to another place. With Tom’s time traveling, the reader gets taken to a different time too.
Coming spring 2011, The Hourglass Institute book 2: Yesterday’s Treasures
