This novella was self-published by a friend of mine, so I’ll freely admit to being a little bias but I’ll attempt to give an objective review. (Before I get there though you may as well check out his website here Smile) I enjoyed the story though I thought the characters could have been more fleshed out, the villains in particular seem rather one-sided but this is understandable due to the length.

What I liked:

The book starts with a bang as bullets whizz by the main characters head, and then we flash back to how events got started. His use of time travel is well done and I enjoyed how he makes a joke about time travel always being confusing (as it often is). The way he uses real life conspiracies/mysteries is very creative and I especially enjoyed the Newfoundland ones. In particular I loved how he worked in an explanation for strange objects spotted last winter near Fortune Bay was very funny and well written. I also enjoy anything related to World War II and the Germans; I thought using a descendent of Rommel in the story was a nice twist.

In Conclusion:

I enjoyed this novella and I hope there is more to come. There were a few minor spacing/editing errors but these do not detract from the story. We are left with a cliff-hanger, so hopefully the sequel is in the works. I would also like to learn more about the future security force discussed here. I give this 8/10, it’s a quick, exciting read and I look forward to reading more.
