Page-turning literary sci-fi that keeps you guessing!

Karen Inglis, Best Selling Children's Author

A desperate search. A journey through time. A secret connection that outpaces the clock…

New Shanghai, 2074. Engella Rhys hates the utter isolation of time-travel. After years searching through history for her missing parents, she’s on the run and in the crosshairs of fierce Hunters. But when a surprise attack forces her to jump without coordinates, she lands on an almost-deserted beach near a kind stranger carrying the same experimental device.

Teaming up to unravel the bizarre mystery of their matching time-tech, Engella’s new friend falls prey to their pursuers. And after making a series of dangerous discoveries, she finds herself torn between saving her companion or finding her own family.

Will Engella uncover the answer to her lost loved ones, or is she doomed to die alone?

The Lights of Time is the first book in the high-octane Chronicles of Engella Rhys YA sci-fi series. If you like puzzling mysteries, strong heroines, and temporal twists and turns, then you’ll love Paul Ian Cross’s thrilling adventure.
