    KD Berry does it again with this third stand alone adventure set in the Central Realms of high fantasy This time around the fabric of time is upset when petty conman Halleday sets up an enterprising scheme the Fountain of Forever to sell the people what they want; youth And when the mysterious Persephone becomes his assistant the scam surprised even Halleday showing a handsome profit But then scallywag Vilnius Baccarat on the run from destiny and with his desperately ill grandson in tow turns up at the spa time and Fate are disturbed Can temporal agent Merivell from the Chronological Intervention Agency CIA sort it all out before he’s pinged back to the future and does he even want to? It’s another hilarious past paced tale from this award winning writing duo as their likeable characters both noble and nefarious human and otherwise are pulled and twisted like threads in a tapestry As is the case for other stories in this series the authors’ witty subtext makes Fountain of Forever an entertaining read aloud experience for parents wanting a galloping story to enjoy with their middle graders I hope we’ll see this one come out as an audio book as I can see Fountains of Forever being the perfect panacea for backseat suabbles during a long trip in the car Lee Murray author of A Dash of Reality

    The Fountain of Forever promises the gift of eternal youth To turn back the years and make you young again if you pay enough money People come from all over the country in a desperate attempt to regain some time and to live a little longerUnfortunately it's all just a very elaborate scam at least it is until Persephone turns upSpeaking of turning back time Vilnius is fleeing from his obligations The payment for his wishes is still outstanding and the bailiff is hot on his heels If that wasn't enough going on Persephone is being hunted and temporal agents are afootThe time traveller Merrivel also makes an appearance in this story Readers may remember him from previous Berry novelsFate and time are changed and played with like pawns on a chess board in this story that mixes wit with fantasy and the fantastical Berry likes to keep it funny and playful whilst incorporating elements of mythology fantasy and sci fiI received a copy of this book courtesy of the author

    I first became a fan of KD Berry's work after reading Growing Disenchantments a fantasy that was chock full of humor which I also found to be exceptionally well written The same is true of Fountain of Forever KD Berry has a real knack for crafting adventures that leave you at the edge of your seat and characters that stick in your mind long after you've finished the story The characters in Fountain of Forever one of which I was happy to have recognized as being from Growing Disenchantments are believable and so filled with wit and snark that any lover of sarcasm or outstanding character development couldn't help but love them I am looking forward to reading books by KD Berry in the future and have recommended the authors' books to several people
