Tomorrow's Guardian Reviews

    A fast paced, action filled adventure through time!Tomorrow's Guardian was a fun read filled with so many twists, that you'll be guessing until the very end. Denning created a clever world where time is fragile and every event matters. He interweaves time-travel and history in a way that makes history exciting. I loved the quirky cast of characters from different periods of time. Together, they made me laugh as they travel through time to keep the world safe from people who want to try to change [...]

    Article first published as Book Review:Tomorrow's Guardian by Richard Denning on Blogcritics.The nightmares continued night after night, Tom Oakley was always someone else in the dream. The faces were not any that he recognized and the time was somewhere in the past. Each occurrence dealt with the death of the person whose body he inhabited during the dream sequence. If that was not bad enough he was having issues when he was awake as well. He would seem to lose time, or find himself in a differ [...]

    I have a soft spot for time travel stories. There's just something about them that I've always enjoyed, whether it be traveling through flumes with Bobby Pendragon or traveling through time and space in a TARDIS, I've just always liked them. That being said, I enjoyed reading 'Tomorrow's Guardian' by Richard Denning. It has a good mix of adventure, history, and comradery and should catch the eye of the pickiest readers-- young, pre-teen boys-- while still being a fun read for other sci-fi buffs. [...]

    Initially they seemed like really vivid nightmares- suddenly Tom would be fighting in the Battle of Isandlwana in 1879, watching his men get massacred or drowning on a U-boat or burning in a fire. Then things got even weirder as Tom kept experiencing these weird déjà-vu type moments, reliving moments that he swore had already passed just minutes before. Each episode was followed by a fainting spell, and while Tom's parents thought he suffered from some form of epilepsy, Tom simply believed he [...]

    My first thoughts when I was offered this book for review was Time Travel = Dr Who. I was wrong. Tom, the main character does not need a Tardis to travel in time. Hey, come on this is ‘real’ time travel we’re talking about!We first meet Tom Oakley on the morning of his 11th Birthday as he awakens from a nightmare. He’s a clever lad for his age, but not to the point of becoming unrealistic or obnoxious. I loved that he was quick witted and caught on to what was going on and was soon makin [...]

    Tomorrow's Guardian is a fast-moving time travel science fiction story by Richard Denning. The main character, Tom Oakley, is a highly-likable character, and his sidekick, Septimus, is also quite wonderful. The three Walkers that Tom and Septimus rescue all have different talents. For instance, Mary can create a force field that others cannot penetrate. All of the supporting cast is very interesting and young readers should like all of them. I wonder how one of us would react to being yanked fro [...]

    Like so many people, I am intrigued by the notion of time travel and was expecting to enjoy this book. Although "Tomorrow's Guardian" is aimed at young adults rather than someone of (ahem) my age, it was still a fun read, and I loved the innovative method with which the young hero, Tom, is able to travel through time, known as "walking". Essentially, feeling a little faint and disoriented is a warning sign that he learns to recognise as an imminent trip through time. He soon learns to control an [...]

    from Murphy's Library — murphysibrary/11 years old Tom Oakley has been struggling with nightmares, where he’s always someone else: a sailor, a girl, a Lieutenant. The common point on them? He—or should I say them?—is always about to die. If that weren’t enough, he starts to have this weird experiences when it seems the time is going backwards. When he’s sure he’s going mad, a weird guy named Septimus shows up and tells him he’s a Walker, he can bend the time and travel through it [...]

    I have to admit what first drew to this book was time travel, I mean I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who and I figured that their might be some similarities between the two. In this sense the book didn’t let me down at all, we very quickly got to know Tom and what he could do and also that he had a greater role to play.We were whisked off to different times right from the very start but more interesting was when we started visiting times in history which I already had some familiarity with most not [...]

    I had a really hard time getting into this story. The writing was fine and the premise was a cool idea but it just moved too slow. I was about halfway through the book and basically still couldn't get the total geist of what the group was all about. The plot just kept repeating itself over and over again with no new clues to get the reader guessing as to the whole point of time traveling back to rescue certain individuals.I did like the idea that the young boy dreamed about the individuals first [...]

  • Deranged Pegasus

    The style of writing was simple and yet complex as the author not only dealt with time-travel but also the ethics of such travel. The author also expanded outside of the usual ideas related to time travel and imbued his characters with different abilities as they relate to time. I wonderful read and I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.
