Imagine if you were able to change the past. If by altering one tiny thing you could start a chain of catastrophic events. This is the first volume in the compelling and internationally successful Guardians of Time trilogy.
I've just made a huge mistake and it's really going to cost me. I've broken a vital code - never reveal your powers in public.
Ethan is Named - he has the ability to travel back in time, where he must use his special skills to try and intercept the dark forces intent on unravelling history. But Ethan is also a normal school boy, and leading a single life with a double identity is becoming just too much to handle, especially when even the normal part is getting more and more complicated.
And then Isabel comes along.
About The Author
Marianne Curley is the author of Old Magic, The Named, The Dark and The Key. She was born in Windsor, NSW. She soon discovered her love of books, becoming a school librarian at the age of nine. Her first job was a secretary for a solicitor in a government legal department, where she was introduced to computers, which soon became her second-favourite pastime.
After marrying and having three children Marianne and her young family moved to Coffs Harbour. It was there, surrounded by beaches, rainforests and fresh clean air, that Marianne began to write. Returning to the work force as a teacher of adult education, Marianne took writing courses and found writing for young adults the most challenging and satisfying. Today she has three children, whose conversations and experiences inspire her writing.
