      McQuerry is masterful in her characterizations of the three children who are the main characters in this story. Her ability to ground them in the realities of school, friendships, and their interests makes them believable. For example, Timothy savors words that specifically describe his situations. He especially enjoys thinking of how each word would win him Scrabble points. He loves researching and learning. The local librarian is his friend and guide who helps him find books, like Chaos Theory [...]

      The Telling Stone, while a sequel to Beyond the Door, stands perfectly well on its own. Full of adventure from the start, the story keeps its readers hooked though intrigue, suspense, and compelling characters. I felt like a kid again, sitting in my playhouse reading Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising series, books which I have gone back to as an adult. The Telling Stone too, will bring me back in the future because it is told by a writer who correctly handles her research. She includes interes [...]

      I love this series it reminds me of all the books I loved as a kid, but unlike them it isn't dated. The truly malevolent British folktales characters are terrifying. Whilst the distinctive characters of the children really elevate the book above twisted fairytale I love that the big battle is at the beginning of the book, because a battle doesn't tie up any loose ends, it just creates more mess. .

      High, High Fantasy for Middle GradeThere are three things you should know about this book right up front.First, it is well written, fast paced, and populated by strong major characters and fascinating supporting players. Even if you aren't big on Celtic mythology this is a fine and ripping quest/fantasy/adventure choice.Second, the Celtic angle is handled just right. Some books just drop a few references to Merlin or Taliesin and call it good. Some books are so slavishly committed to reflecting [...]

      This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]

      The most "Dark is Rising" series ever!

    • Richard Badalamente says:

      Maureen Doyle McQuerry’s second novel in the Time Out of Time series, The Telling Stone, leaps right into a cataclysmic battle for the Travelers Market. Timothy James Maxwell, the young hero of the first book in the series, Beyond the Door, is joined by the forces of Light against the forces of Dark, led by Balor, of the Evil Eye, the mythic leader of the dark and demonic race of Formorians of Scottish lore. McQuerry’s description of the battle is filled with the cacophony and catastrophe of [...]

      I was originally attracted to this by the enchanting cover art and a line comparing it to The Dark Is Rising and the works of Neil Gaiman (two things that are definitely going to catch my attention). I leapt into this eagerly, not realising that it was the second in a series - and to be fair, nothing on the cover indicated it was a series, with the back of the book was crammed full of throwaway praise lines and no blurb to indicate the same. The prologue was slow, and dull. The first chapter was [...]

    • Donna says:

      Throughout human history, people have created myths, or tribal stories that explain the world and celebrate values like courage, generosity, and healing. In the Time Out of Time series, the modern world is shown in much the same way ancient people of the British Isles must have experienced their world: only the visible part of a much larger reality, in which great spiritual battles are enjoined between forces of Good and Evil. Such stories are inherently dramatic, and mythological characters ten [...]

    • Kendall says:

      McQuerry has written yet another wonderful, captivating story that keeps company with the best of George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Neil Gaiman.

      The second book in McQuerry's Time Out Of Time series, Middle Grade and early YA readers will find plenty in this book to grab their attention. With the help of an ages-old map and an Ogham Code, Timothy, Jessica and Sarah travel to Scotland to search for the Telling stone that will confirm Timothy's place as the new Filidh (the Keeper of Memories and Wisdom). But to find the stone they must battle to defeat the forces of the Dark in order to keep Light in the World. This is a wonderfully fun bo [...]

    • Gina says:

      I received this book as a First Read. It's the second book in the series. It does so-so as a standalone but I think is better served reading the first book beforehand. It's a quick read with well developed characters. The classic struggle between good and evil, light and dark is spun into a tale with Celtic ties. The animals and magic make it an interesting read for the middle grade set.

    • Brenda Schneider says:

      A engaging story, great characters. I received this book through Good reads.

    • Kate Alleman says:

      I had forgotten about this series since I read the first book about a year ago. Luckily, it was easy to get back into the series. Great for readers who love mythology and adventure.
