Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first of Simon Hawke's "Time Wars" 12 books about a crack team from the "Temporal Intelligence Agency".

Kicks off a funny and well written series about a group of operatives who have to travel through time to prevent other time travellers causing damage to history.

Sometimes their opponents are rogue individual time terrorists: sometimes they come up against operatives from rival versions of history.

All 12 books in this series pay humorous homage to a great work of literature or set of historical events, or both. Most of these books go back to the time and events of a classic novel, in this case obviously, "Ivanhoe" by Sir Walter Scott, and retell the events of that novel, usually with a humorous slant.

The books are best read in the correct sequence, as follows (I have put the name of the literary work and/or historical events associated with each book in brackets afterwards)

1) The Ivanhoe Gambit (Ivanhoe)

2) The Timekeeper Conspiracy (The Three Musketeers)

3) The Pimpernel Plot (French Revolution & terror/Scarlet Pimpernel)

4) The Zenda Vendetta (The Prisoner of Zenda)

5) The Nautilus Sanction (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)

6) The Kyber Connection (works of Rudyard Kipling/early life of Churchill)

7) The Argonaut Affair (Jason and the Argonauts)

8) The Dracula Caper (Sherlock Holmes meets Bram Stoker's Count Dracula)

9) The Lilliput Legion (Gulliver's travels)

10) The Hellfire Rebellion (American War of Independence/Hellfire Club)

11) The Cleopatra Crisis (Caesar and Cleopatra)

12) The Six-gun solution (Gunfight at the OK Corral.)

Not terribly serious but very good fun: I can recommend this series, and if you want to read it, start with this one.

Read the original paperbacks and have been waiting for this series electronically. Barnes and Noble never put this series in eBook format. Amazon is starting to make it available as an eBook. Finally!!!!! Now get the rest of the series and we are set.

I pick this book up back in college in the 80's. I loved the book back then and I loved it now.
Hawke mix time travel with classic literature(Ivanhole) with time travel buddies.
What make the book fun is Simon Hawke poked fun of our ideal of Ivonhole, Rebecca, Robin Hood and the merry men.
I loved all 3 lead charcters.Their banter and chemistry made this series top notch entertainment .

Loved this series when it first came out. A different take on the time travel/ sci-fi genre. Thrilled it finally became available as an eBook. Hope the rest of the series becomes available soon.
