Time is Relative for a Knight of Time by Brett Matthew Williams
The origin story of Father Time and the world in which he lived – 21st century Earth. Seventeen year old homeless orphan Rolland Wright is plucked from his otherwise obscure life when a bookstore fire forces him to assume the role of hero in a life or death situation. This results in the startling discovery of his own time travel powers, a secret paradise known as Eden, an elite group of warriors (the Knights of Time) sworn to protect the time stream from evil, and the truth behind a family secret that sends him nearly two hundred years into the past to prevent a murder. Rolland Wright takes his first steps to becoming the legendary figure Father Time in the first installment of the Tale of Time series; Time is Relative for a Knight of Time.
