Timecracks act as portals to other dimensions. They have existed since the creation of time and the multiverse, and when one arrives during a storm at the newly discovered pyramid site in the Yucatan jungle, it's the beginning of a nightmare journey into another world for archaeologist, Malcolm Kinross and his wife, Lucy.
When another timecrack strikes the secretive energy complex, the Facility in New Mexico, their sons, Archie and Richard, along with their tutor, Marjorie, and uncle, Professor John Strawbridge, find themselves thrust into the same world of New Arrivals, ancient warring tribes and deadly enemies.
Richard is endowed with the ability to 'see' beyond his own world. Can he help Archie to find their parents, and find a way to escape the rebel Arnaks and return to their own world?
‘Timecrack is one of those entertaining books that pulls you out of the monotony of day to day life, and thrusts you upon a whole new world. In this first book in his series, we join the Kinross family in a beautiful, humourous, thrilling adventure when a portal opens up and pulls them through to a fantastic new world.’ Michael DeAngelo Tellest.com
‘William Long's Timecrack is a good old-fashioned science fiction romp in the true spirit of the father of the genre, H.G. Wells. This dizzying Boy's-Own escapade through the wormholes of time and space will have you gripped right to the last with its fantastical vistas of new exotic worlds and ancient civilisations.’ M. McCullough Daily Mirror
'A rollercoaster Sci-fi adventure that flings the reader headlong into other worlds that are all the more unnerving because they blend the fantastic with the familiar. You catch yourself thinking –somewhere in our past or our future this might actually be happening. A novel that awakens the young-adventurer in all of us.' Karen Maitland Bestselling Author

‘I managed to pick up a copy of the first of the Timecrack Adventures. I’ve not read sci-fi since I was a young man and must say the first 60 pages have proved intriguing. My wife has complained because the bedside light is staying on …’ Maurice Neill Author and Journalist
‘Timecrack is a sci-fi fantasy adventure story aimed at the young adult market – and older kids!’ Holywood Advertiser

Fast-paced, richly detailed, and well developed, this young adult story will be loved by readers of all ages. This is a book that transcends genre and age. Richard and Archie are two very likeable characters. They are smart, responsible, and surprisingly calm given their condition. The addition of their uncle and tutor was great; however it was Richard who drew me into the story. His 'special ability' makes him unique and the way he tackles the situation is handled well. This is a unique concept and William Long executed it well. It is an immersive story, one that will have you glued to the book and not wanting to let go. Readers' Favorite 5 Star review
