Keeper Of The Black Stones – Book Review
If you hold the fate of the world in your hands, and you don’t want those secrets found – never write them in your journal!
A man as brilliant as Doctor Richard Evans – a retired physics professor known affectionately as “Doc” by his grandson, high school student Jason Evans – should know that!
But lately, Doc is acting strangely. He’s distracted. He’s taking frequent trips and leaving no means of contacting him. He can never be reached by cell phone while he’s away.
Jason is concerned and determined to find out the cause for Doc’s odd behavior.
So, when Jason discovers he has accidentally grabbed the wrong bag on his way to school and now holds his Doc’s journal in his hand, he cannot resist taking a peek. He’s sure he will only find boring formulas and mathematical equations inside.
Instead, he finds a series of mind-boggling journal entries that confirm his worst suspicions:
His grandfather is losing his mind!
After all, the contents of the journal contain entries that are the stuff that sci-fi is made of. Time travel. Conspiracy theories. Dual identities. Secret lives.
But – when someone vandalizes their home in search of something valuable – and, when the people within the pages of the journal start showing up at Jason’s home – an even scarier possibility crosses Jason’s mind.
What if everything his grandfather wrote about is true?
Keeper Of The Black Stones – Stone Ends, Book 1 by PT McHugh is a riveting Young Adult novel that delivers everything you want in a time travel novel – and then some!
The action alternates between present-day New Hampshire and Medieval England, where Jason must travel back through time to save his grandfather – and the world – from a madman! The details are accurate, the theories are plausible, and the suspense is palpable throughout. Both urban fantasy and historical fiction lovers will delight in this book!
PT McHugh is a masterful storyteller who has hit a home run with Keeper Of The Black Stones! Stay tuned – Book 2 is on the way, and I can’t wait to see where that story leads!

PT was born and raised in New Hampshire and currently lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife, two daughters, and a dog named Bob, daring to dream of alternate worlds and cheering for his beloved New England Patriots.
