Book 2 goes into more depth on the alien's life/family and the ongoing war on earth and how the two intertwine for the big ending. The story continues and moves at a quick pace. We find out what happened when the time traveler does start a family in the past. How it not only affected the earth but also the invading aliens past and future. This novel has time travel forward and backwards trying to stop the alien war and save the time traveler's family to keep from changing history or the future.
There is a recurring character that pops in and out of both novels 1 and 2. He reminds me of the Cheshire Cat, you never know when he is going to show up and
In closing, I loved these novels and I haven't read any sci-fi for a few years. I have been reading more fantasy and horror. I guess I got away from it because my favorite science fiction writer, Spider Robinson, stop writing about Callahan's Saloon. Now I have Tim C. Taylor to follow, can't wait for the next story, and I am sure you will feel the same. What a ride.
Two opposing forces, intelligent races, duel across time and space to win a war that dictates whether they ever even existed. History will remember only the winner, but does that make them righteous? or merely victorious?
In a story where some sacrifices last forever and others never happened (or sometimes both at once) the main players develop complex motives and even more complex complexes in a manner that kept me thinking about the repercussions of human relationship.
I love time travel when it's done right. The City of Destruction was just that, sporting a host of character-testing contradictions that beg readers to inspect their deepest selves. If right and wrong were irrelevant would I abandon my humanity to do what had to be done to save it? Read it! Review it! Share it!
It is not totally bad, but certainly not as good as the first book.
