Science Fantasy (middle grades, ages 8 to 13)
Introduce your young readers to a series of high-intensity adventures across the fourth dimension. Boy inventor Max McCrane turns a rusty orange Volkswagen Beetle into a time machine, then launches himself and his friends on a series of white-knuckle roller-coaster rides through time and space. Max and friends meet a wild array of opponents from the past and the future: the scheming Madame Jacquelynn Hyde; the wild-eyed alchemist Dr. Delyrius; the relentless robots known as the Time Troopers; the blue-skinned, golden-eyed Timelings; and that ancient fire-breathing deceiver, the Silver Dragon.
These stories are designed to inspire a love of adventure, a love of reading, and a love for God and His truth. The first two ebooks in the series were released by Greenbrier Books in mid-2012: Book 1: Battle Before Time and Book 2: Doorway to Doom. The third and fourth books have just been released for January 2013: Book 3: Invasion of the Time Troopers and Book 4: Lost in Cydonia.
Young readers love Timebenders: “The Timebenders books are so awesome,” writes Chloe. “They really encourage me.” And Ben writes, “I’ve read all the Timebenders books! My mom reads them to me at bedtime and I take them for independent reading at school.” And parents love Timebenders: “My son has devoured the Timebenders books,” one dad writes. “They really entertain him. We hear him laughing out loud as he reads.”
Jim Denney is a professional writer with more than 100 published books to his credit. He says, “I wrote the Timebenders series to give young readers the same sense of excitement and deeper truth that I experienced as a boy, reading A Wrinkle in Time and The Chronicles of Narnia.” Jim is a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He has also written science fiction short stories for various publications, and has new Timebenders tales on the drawing board. Visit Jim’s blog athttp://jimdenney.wordpress.com/.
