Ross comprehended that somehow he had been jerked through the gate, that he was now fronting the land that had been somewhere beneath the heights supporting the castle. Then he fought for his life to escape the hammer of the sea determined to crack him against the surface of the cliff.

A rough surface loomed up before him, and he threw himself in that direction, embracing a rock, striving to cling through the backwash of the wave which had brought him there. His nails grated and broke on the stone, and then the fingers of his right hand caught in a hole, and he held with all the strength in his gasping, beaten body. He had had no preparation, no warning, and only the tough survival will which had been trained and bred into him saved his life.

Great book, Great series. Each book takes place in a completely different time and planet. She also introduces new cultures and characters while keeping a few for continuity.

Time Traders transitions to Witch World...

A couple of the original time traders go to a new Hawaii with new friends and modified Dolphins and end up attempting to alter the past against old foes with new and mysterious witchey friends.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to rate Andre Norton's "Key Out of Time" at a Not Very Good 2 stars out of 5. I'm assuming that since this is the 4th book in her Time Traders series, you've already read the first three and are familiar with her writing. For the most part, the writing here is simila

Trapped when the time portal breaks, Ross and Murdoch help a world fight the blue aliens.

Once again, I have been unable to put this book down when I should be sleeping!
Norton's sense for story telling is superb.

This wasn't the best scifi I've ever read, but it's also far from the worst.
