MMGM: The Deliverers 4: Sparkling Mist of Time by Gregory Slomba


Every year on his birthday Eric Scott and his family celebrate by attending the local reenactment of The Battle of Canfield Corners which was fought October 22, 1777. But ever since his dad died, it hasn't felt the same to Eric. After the festivities he is summoned by The Gatekeeper who had given him his last three assignments. Eric meets with him and finds out that he and the rest of the Deliverers (Stig- a talking owl, Hallo Tosis- a dwarf, and Kate- a friend he met on his first assignment) must go back in time to 1777 to stop a creature who is using a sparking mist to punch a hole in the fabric of time. Although Eric is excited to see his old friends and to be working on a new assignment, he is also worried about going back in time and stopping something so powerful. When they arrive in Eric's town over two hundred years earlier it is familiar and strange. Luckily, they meet Mathias, a boy close to Eric and Kate's age, who is able to help them figure out what has been going on. In order to stop the creature they need to work together and use Eric's knowledge of the Revolutionary War to stop the creature from changing history and erasing the world and everyone in it. Can The Deliverers stop the creature? Will they be able to figure out the creature's reason for trying to change history and alter the world? What will happen if they fail? You will have to read this exciting ending to The Deliverers series to find out!

I have read all the books in this series and The Deliverers 4: Sparkling Mist of Time by Gregory Slomba was an amazing ending to an awesome series. I love that everything was wrapped up. It was a story that will keep readers turning the pages. I also liked that readers who haven't read the other three books would be able to read this one and understand what is going on (though it is always better to read the whole series in order, in my opinion). So happy to learn how this adventure/fantasy series ends! It was great to see the friendships continue to evolve and grow throughout their adventure in time. I also learned a lot about the American Revolution and some of the battles that took place in and around Connecticut. I definitely have some places I want to check out in person now- like Keeler Tavern.  Changing time is such an interesting concept and I think the author did a fabulous job making everything easy to understand. As I  turned the last page I was happy to have the series wrapped up and all my questions answered, but I was sad that I wouldn't be reading about these friends again.  I recommend this series to anyone in 4th grade and up who enjoys adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, and history.  

Has anyone else read The Deliverers 4: Sparling Mist of Time? Or have you read another book in The Deliverers series? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Reading!
