This was a fun book to read with fine travel at its core. I liked the space time dimension being explored by author Gene Abel.

Something had changed in the past as shown by the disruption of the temporal wave seen in one of the new gadgets invented. If the past changed what would happen to the future? To protect life as we knew it, a team was sent into the past to prevent that event.

My first book by this author, there was quite a bit of scientific explanation which soon embellished into an adventurous travel, bringing out the thrill at strategic points.

The team had great camaraderie and worked cohesively. Having an enterprising journalist from the past, acting as a guide to this eclectic team of agents and professors, the book soon became a race against time to save the world.

The action scenes were well described. The book had a tinge of movie Avatar which made me happy. I loved that movie. Suspense about the perp had me tapping on my kindle fast and furious. At 200 odd pages it packed a punch with a good twist in the end.

Book 1 in a trilogy, this was an entertaining breakfast read.

Time travel is the cutting edge of modern research. Like gravity waves, temporal waves can now be detected and traced back to the time and place of their origin, even making it possible for one to travel back in time. Or at least for one’s consciousness to be projected through a wormhole to appear in a three-dimensional projection of one’s original body, thanks to the temporal projection chamber.

Only three countries have the apparatus to make this event possible: the United States, Germany, and Japan. But now two scientists at a symposium on time travel have been killed, followed nearly immediately by the detection of a time displacement wave, or TDW-the signature of someone traveling back in time to change the past.

Who they are and what they want to change is unknown. What is known is that there are only two days to rectify the situation before history settles into a new pattern.

Special Agent Lou Hessman and his team are now tasked with going back to the New York City of the year 1919 to find and stop the other team behind this TDW. Not an easy task under any circumstance, but the question remains: Are these changes something they want to fix?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
