KIRKUS REVIEW

In the second installment of the Time Thriller trilogy, Jeff and Elizabeth are on their way to a high-school end-of-the-year party when a mysterious mist envelops their car and King Arthur comes riding out of it. Their otherwise ordinary American town of Fawlt Line lies on a mysterious time fault, and 200 years of mysterious time-related events have occurred there. However, Arthur has not quite shown up in the right place, as his legend says that he will “come back to help Britain in its greatest time of need.” Skipping back and forth between Fawlt Line and England, the narrative brings Arthur and his American friends together with the wise recluse Myrddin and an English priest struggling with his faith. The time-travel contrivance allows McCusker to compare the loss of the glory of Camelot to the soulless 21st century and to speculate on the place of God in this world. An enjoyable time travel romp with overt Christian content. (Christian fantasy. 10-14)
