Book Review: The Obsidian Blade

The Obsidian Blade (The Klaatu Diskos, #1)The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

At its crux, this book is a time traveler yarn about a young boy who loses his boring sheltered life in rural Minnesota. Tucker Feye, son of preacher and organ player, finds himself disheveled the day his father disappears from the roof of the house. When he arrived later in the day with a blonde-haired girl. Within months his mother loses her mind, his father loses faith, and Tucker loses both his parents. Then comes Uncle Kosh and the crazy journey begins. Spanning the top of a burning building, a pyramid for sacrifice, a big black barn and more.

In the end its like a young version of Back to the Future because Tucker the time traveler and his Uncle Kosh are all confused about what is happening to them. The learned reader will find this to be a fun and quick opening read for a new series; whereas, the novice will be introduced to a new idea of Klaatu Diskos, alternate realities, causality rifts, and the possibility of history and unknown futures.

This is my second Audiobooks book and it was different. Having a single vibrant reader is a great listen in the car or during chores.
