    1. Jack on said:

      Time travel is the focus of Jane Yates’ debut novel, Paradox Child. The child in question is twelve-year-old Lilly, a slightly shy girl with a delightfully inquisitive mind and a pretty unconventional family. Whilst a lot of eighties kids might have spent their time playing Hungry Hungry Hippos or watching The A-Team, Lilly is more concerned with practicing the art of magic with her mother and grandmother. But when her mother fails to return from one of her mysterious excursions, it’s up to [...]

      Time travel. Check.Magic. Check.History. Check.Quantum physics. Check.Romance. Check.Steampunk. Check.Kitchen sink…Okay, you get the idea.There are many things going on in this story. Concepts that fascinate me are all covered, and then some. This is an adventure wrapped in mystery, mixing fantasy and reality (e.g. the time machine is hidden in Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford – yeah, that ought to blur the lines between fact and fiction).There is plenty to like. But there is a downside – the [...]

      Paradox Child by J Yates ("re-edited version by the marvellous Mr Chris Keppie") is the first of three books. I really can't call it a series, more like installments of one book. Paradox Child ends abruptly and without conclusion, making me wonder just what happened to the storyline. There isn't even a "to be continued." I felt really dissatisfied until I picked up the second book which started just after the last incident in the first book. This second book has no backfill; it is just a continu [...]

      Paradox Child by J. Yates Book 1The story is about Lilly a girl who is brought up by her Mum and her Gran, who are both as wiccans and also time traveller. Lilly learns of the family secret when her Mum doesn’t return home and Lilly’s gran becomes unwell and it’s down to Lilly to go back in time to bring her back.There are mysteries, tragedy’s and unanswered questions through the book.The book is written in a narrative style and has a unique way to it, though sometimes I found that the [...]

      The Paradox Child: A review written by Book RaidersThis book is aimed at young readers approx. 12 years of age, however, don’t let that discourage you. I found it enjoyable. Author J. Yates’s key characters have a dynamic that moves the story along. It is fascinating how the author uses magic and science combined with ancient history as a catalyst. The little girl Lilly a curious twelve-year-old learnt more about her past when her mother disappeared. Her grandmother lives with them and is il [...]

      Delightful characters in a wonderful mix (or rather, interface) of the ordinary and extraordinary.Young Lilly lives in a normal house in Oxford, attends school (fairly regularly), and has spaniels, friends, romance, bereavement, marmalade sandwiches and lots of cakes. And (whilst Dad's not about), a Mum and Gran who matter of factly teach her Latin, botany, and spells! Oh yes, and how to time travelChapter divisions cleverly move the story along, introducing enchanting nuggets of history, anthro [...]

      Beyond all the classic things, like well developed characters and interesting plot progression, this book was terrific. It has spirit. The framework of setting description and foreshadowing is solid and graceful. The science of time travel is not an easy or very often a graceful subject. Yates has rewritten the rules. This book not only made the theories of space and time travel seem simple, but perfectly obtainable. All the while entertaining too. At no point did I feel like I had left the imme [...]

      I have given this book an okay rating. I did struggle with some parts of it because it felt as if they were meandering, not having a clear relationship with the underlying plot or at times a sense of purpose. For example, it felt as if the section at the end involving Maggie was bolted on - to me it should have been the beginning of another adventure. That having been said I read the book to the end (which I wouldn't have done had it not been engaging), the characters of Lily and Iris in particu [...]

      Paradox Child draws the reader into an unusual family of magical women. Though written for YA readers (with ventures that include witchcraft and time travel), it intrigued me throughout. The characters (including pets) are well-developed and charming.I look forward to reading the next two books and to passing the series to my grandchildren.

    10. Steven on said:

      The plot behind the story was good, but the grammar was horrible. For reference, I read this ebook on my iPhone and noticed as many as 3 or 4 mistakes per page with an average of 1 per page. Despite the numerous mistakes, the plot was interesting enough to keep me hooked.

    11. Andrea Renee Smith on said:

      I do not normally read this genre. I found very fascinating and would reccommend to anyone.

    12. Elizabeth on said:

      I was really looking for more to this story. So much time was spent working up to the missing children, that the events around the time machine seemed forced. I also felt that the language was condescending, even for a YA novel. In the end I was left disappointed and underwhelmed.

      Lilly and her mum Rose and her grandma iris are magical her mum gets stuck in time and its up to lilly to go get her full of adventures for lilly children missing then come back confused and dazed lilly meets some new friend one called ann, maggie and jim and reunites with jack one of her friends from scotland I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one

    14. Stacy on said:

      Paradox Child is a time travel story involving a young girl, her mother and grandmother. The young girl finds out she comes from generations of women who travel back in time-- and Lily must do so to rescue her mother. I would have liked this book much more had there not been all the witchcraft in it-- I found it distracting to the story. I wish that Ms. Yates had written it without that being one of the themes and employed some other device to aid the characters in their time-traveling adventure [...]
