My book, the Time Rose prequel, Generations Five, took third place in Young Adult category of the Critters Readers Poll contest for books published in 2020, with the cover for it taking eighth place in the Book Cover category.
This book covers several different historical periods and is suitable for kids aged nine and up.
According to some of the reviews, adults like it, too.
“Generations Five answers questions about the entire Wolverton family’s involvement with the rose medallion and provides the historical context of the final five generations to use the Medallion. Sadly, this book completes the story of the time traveling Wolvertons teaching all the kids a lot of history (and we readers, as well) and shows with their intelligence and bravery exactly why the family was chosen to use the medallion’s magic…This is a great series. You should get it for your own kids, their cousins, and the kid down the block who needs something good to read. It’s very worthwhile even for us grown-ups who like rousing tales extending across centuries of history.”

“Honestly, I don’t know how Ms. Duke does it. Her books are all astoundingly filled with small, telling, writerly details that would give any writer pause. Yet, she never fails to find the humanity, courage, and humor in her young cast of characters as well. I’ve been a fan of Ms. Duke’s Time Rose series for some time and naturally, this one doesn’t fail to enchant, entertain, and thrill. If you like science fiction, young adult material, history, or just plain fine writing, do give her books a try. Highly recommended”.

“A beautiful medallion forged in ancient times by a sorcerer is passed down through generations of children in the Wolverton family. Each traveler is expected to heed the medallion’s ‘call’ into the past where they must seek another child in danger and assist them. It’s often unclear who needs their aid, until they find another holder of a rose medallion. Ms. Duke has crafted a compelling journey through different periods of history, where the kids must use their wits and resources. The historical details are well done, the young participants believable with issues of their own. This is a must read for lovers of adventure and history.”
