“Finding The Fountain Of Youth (Shattering The Effects Of Time Book 1)” by C.A. King - IHIBRP 5-Star

A Captivating, Enticing, Rambunctious, & Fun Fantasy Adventure!

“Finding The Fountain Of Youth” picks up where C.A. King’s popular novel series, “The Portal Prophecies”, leaves off—While there is no known magic that could reverse the effects of aging, Victoria’s triplet brothers, Jessie, Dezi, and Pete, set off on a quest with the untrustworthy and curmudgeonly professor, Finkel, along with a mysterious teenage girl called Nadine, to find a cure for their sister’s magically induced ailment before time runs out.

King’s story is every bit as captivating and enticing as it is rambunctious and fun. Her characters are quite life-like and richly developed, making one feel as though they could materialize off the page and tell you their story in their own words. Her plot line consistently builds on itself, leading the reader into an exciting but dangerous quest to solve an ancient riddle, save a race of Mer-people, and maybe even fall in love with time leftover to find a cure for the ailing Victoria. This tale stands well on its own, and I never once felt it was necessary to have read King’s prior series, “The Portal Prophecies”, to understand the overall concepts of this book.

I find few books worthy of rereading, but I would certainly enjoy spending more time living in King’s world with “Finding The Fountain Of Youth”—I hope to someday have the opportunity to read “The Portal Prophecies”. I highly recommend this novel for teens and young adults who are looking for a great evening or weekend Fantasy read.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
