Being a single mom at 15 is tough! Biking along the creek, all Katie wants is a few moments peace away from her teething baby, her bratty brother, her nagging mom, and her callous classmates. Finding a quiet spot to reflect on the unfairness of it all, she sits on a rock—and falls out of the world.
Being the very last apprentice in a centuries-unbroken line is unthinkable! Mourning the death of his mentor, Iannik and everyone else knows he lacks the True Sight to take her place as Seer. Without a Seer to summon the T’laaure, the prophesies will go unfulfilled, and the last remnants of his people will face a bleak, directionless future.
Two worlds on the verge of ecological collapse: one already doomed by its lack of vision, the other by a vision unfulfilled. Can a group of teens find each other—and more importantly, themselves—in time to save at least one world?
Alison Lohans is an award-winning, internationally-published author of 26 books.
Got well stuck into a beautiful new Saskatchewan-based speculative fiction YA novel by Alison Lohans … Timefall faces climate apocalypse, teen parenting, and issues of consent with an innocence that can’t help but be engaging.
author of Maddie Hatter Adventures
Timefall is timely tale that looks deep into the many problems of teenage motherhood and the potential of environmental disaster.
The characters, both main and peripheral, are multifaceted and complex, the conflicts are realistic, and solutions don’t necessarily result in happily-ever-after endings.
