Time Wizards

The world of TIME WIZARDS is a new voice in fantasy. Here time is presented as a new magical universe. This multidimensional world with a conflict between its three people – Time Wizards, Time Fairies and Spirits – is full of time magic; there are original artifacts, castles, unique laws, as well as a concept of time as magic, where a new understanding of the nature of time and magic based on clock mechanisms get intertwined.

The other side of TIME WIZARDS is its bright, alive, versatile characters. Friendship, trust, a choice between easy and right, complex life’s tasks, training of will, first love – these are burning issues of the characters.

Sherba creates a completely new world, invents its mechanis and gets away from all the clichés and stereotypes. The world of TIME WIZARDS is full of creatures, magic castles, spells… Apart from a breathtaking plot line, her books bear a very specific moral charge for a younger audience.
