A truly interesting premise on what could happen if we invented time travel. I would say we need to stay well away from that research right now.
Zed, aka Troy, has an important job in the future. He’s protecting the past.
The government has discovered time travel and the knowledge was leaked out. There are now two factions whirling around the “time that was”. One is determined to stop the horrific events that caused so much death and destruction in our lives. The other is determined to stop them. They want the past left just as it was. Why? Because the government feels they have achieved a utopian society and they don’t need events changed in the past that would change their present.
Zed’s job is basically to go back in time, following the others……..and kill them before they change history. He’s comfortable with what he does and the reason behind it.
But then he stays in one time a little too long and he not only starts meeting people who start to become more than just a ways to a means but he begins to care. At the same time, things aren’t adding up to him. Suspicions arise as to whether he’s actually doing to right thing or not. It becomes very confusing to Zed. Maybe the government isn’t right………..
Another interesting part of this book is that the story is not only centered around Zed. There are several other main characters in the story and they're actions all come to affect each other and the events that occur. Six Degrees so to speak.
I think this book is perfectly set up for a sequel… which I would snatch up in a minute.
