Eleven-year-old Jack's ordinary life is upended when mysterious creatures attack his hometown and he is whisked into a fantastical adventure filled with danger at every turn.

Jack learns that most live in a shadow of the world, their vision blinded by invisible scales that have covered human eyes since the beginning of time. But the Awakened experience the world as it truly is, where war rages between good and evil—and Jack is at the heart of it. The Awakened are searching for The Child of Prophesy who will both save the world and destroy it. When Jack joins in their epic battle he must learn to trust his friends and face his fears if he is to make his life count.

My Review

My daughter, Laura, read this novel in two days and loved it. Here are her thoughts;

Do you want a story that's easy to read yet super fun? Well, then Jack Staples and the Ring of Time is the book for you. The story is PACKED with action from the first chapter, and there's no bad language! The characters seem like they're real, and you find yourself crying and laughing with them.

One of the things that I really appreciate is that the book teaches you many things, such as self-control and trust. This book  has so much imagination in it; you'll realize that you can't put it down! Another thing that young adults will like is that almost all of the main characters are kids! I would recommend this book for anyone, if they love lions or battles with kids in them! It was an amazing experience for me, and not only do I want to read it again, but it also left me anxiously awaiting my birthday when I can get the next one!
