Time-walker Sam Miracle returns in this rip-roaring sequel to The Legend of Sam Miracle (2016). Since discovering his destiny as a time traveler, Sam has found meaning, purpose, and a best friend in Glory, but he’s also faced certain peril. Insidious villain the Vulture is after them, intent on tracking down not just Sam but his friends, including a past version of his mentor, Father Peter Tiempo. The problem is that this earlier Peter isn’t the same—he’s much newer to the ways of time walking than the Peter Sam knows. His inexperience makes this adventure much more dangerous, especially after he goes missing while out on a fact-finding mission. Sam is left to dream-travel and look for clues both about where Peter is and about how to defeat the Vulture—a good deal of work for the young man. Wilson has crafted a twisty tale here, injecting the fantasy and history of the story with plenty of thrills and chills. Fans hooked by the first novel will devour this sequel.— Book List
From the bestselling author of 100 Cupboards comes the second book in a one-of-a-kind middle grade time travel series that is perfect for fans of Soman Chainani's School for Good and Evil books.
Sam Miracle never thought that his future could lie in the past. But after leaping through centuries at the side of a mystical time walker, Sam and his best friend, Glory, know that the next morning’s sun could belong to yesterday as easily as tomorrow.
But no day is safe. Since the Vulture escaped, Sam and Glory’s greatest nemesis has left no time nor place unmarked by his path of destruction. At least Sam and Glory have Peter, the youngest version of their mentor, Father Tiempo, to help repair the sands of time... until they don’t.
Determined to save their friend from the Vulture’s clutches, Sam and Glory put their trust in Ghost, a creature from before time itself. But now, the sidekick must fill the legend’s shoes, the hero must play backup, and the powers they have yet to discover might just hold the key to protecting every last second for eons to come.
