The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper by Author Fiona Ingram-Book Tour and Giveaway







Continuing the adventure that ended in Britain just a short while ago, cousins Adam and Justin Sinclair, with their friend Kim Maleka, are now hunting for the third Stone of Power, one of seven mysterious stones lost centuries ago. The third stone might be located in an ancient city, hidden in the depths of the Mexican jungle. When their small plane crashes in the jungle, Adam, Justin, Kim, and James are rescued by an uncontacted tribe. James, who is wounded, must stay behind as the kids, with only a young boy, Tukum, as their guide, make their way through the dense and dangerous jungle to find the city. River rafting on a crocodile-infested river and evading predators are just part of this hazardous task.

Of course, their old adversary Dr. Khalid is close behind as the kids press on in search of the lost city of stone gods. But he is not the worst of their problems. This time Adam will clash with a terrible enemy who adopts the persona of an evil Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, and is keen to revive the ancient tradition of human sacrifice. Adam, Justin, and Tukum must play a dreadful ball game of life and death and maybe survive. Will they emerge alive from the jungle? Will Dr. Khalid find the third Stone of Power before they do?







I am a children’s author, but up until a few years ago, I was a journalist and editor. Something rather unexpected sparked my new career as an author—a family trip to Egypt with my mother and two young nephews. We had a great time and I thought I’d write them a short story as a different kind of souvenir…. Well, one book and a planned book series later, I had changed careers. I have now published Book 3 (The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper) in my MG adventure series Chronicles of the Stone, with many awards for the first book, The Secret of the Sacred Scarab, and a few for Book 2, The Search for the Stone of Excalibur, and one already for Book 3! I also teach online novel writing for aspiring authors and I find that very satisfying. Relaxation time finds me enjoying something creative or artistic, music, books, theatre or ballet. I love doing research for my book series. I love animals and have written two animal rescue stories. I have two adorable (naughty) little dogs called Chloe and Pumpkin, and a beautiful black cat called Bertie.

Excerpt #2   Adam’s parents would totally freak out if they knew what had really been happening on those trips. But rightfully so. In fact, Adam was a bit freaked out himself right now. He’d always thought a trip to Mexico would be the most fantastic adventure, with its jungles and ruined ancient cities. Well, now they were in a real jungle, and it was more frightening than fantastic—especially when they had no way back to civilization and when the only adult around was hurt and unconscious.


Excerpt#5 Hour after hour, they trudged through the foliage, unable to see more than a few feet ahead. The incessant birdcalls and buzzing of insects seemed to tell them they were as far from civilization as possible. Sunlight filtered through the tree canopy in places, casting a soft, dim glow. Occasional clouds of butterflies rose under the kids’ trampling feet. Orchids of various colors hung from the trees and hugged the base of the trunks. It looked like an exotic movie set, but unfortunately this was about as real as a jungle could be and just as dangerous
