The past and the present blend together in very unique ways in Jumping Jack Flash: A New Adventure in the Time Trippers Series. Albert Martin is a historian at Waverly Industries. Unexpectedly, Albert is called into Senior Executive of Time Travel John Logan’s office. Evidentially, one of the company’s androids had escaped and is reeking havoc in 1879. As a historian, Albert is the perfect choice to travel back in time to London and retrieve Spring-Heeled Jack. Unfortunately, Albert isn’t very experienced at time travel. Jumping Jack Flash is a wonderful combination of humour, adventure, history, and science fiction. The author has done a wonderful job at interweaving historical accurate elements into a solid background for an enjoyable time travel adventure. The storyline is full of action and adventure with a touch of intrigue and a few interesting twists and turns. The characters are realistically flawed and at times hilariously incompetent. These aspects make for page turner that keeps the reader completely entertained. I look forward to the next adventure in this series.
