Book Description

When historian Gwen Hoffman first meets time traveler Mike Garvin, an ex-Special Forces weapons sergeant back from ancient Gaul where he was embedded as a centurion in Julius Caesar's elite 10th Legion, she is more than a little put off. Scarred and dangerous-looking, the man appears more thug than time traveler. Yet he is the person TimeWarp, Inc. is sending back in time to protect Jeshua bar Yosef (Christ) from twenty-first century assassins; the man Gwen was assigned to prepare for life in first-century Galilee. Gwen, of course, has no idea she and Garvin will become lovers. Nor does she realize she herself will end up in Roman Palestine, where she will not only meet Jesus but face danger alongside Mike in the adventure of a lifetime...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read. September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cotton is a great story teller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed reading about Mike Garvin and his relationship to both the Roman legionaires that he serves with, and his trip to save Jesus from future assasins. The book seems to be grounded in realit, with just a hint of the supernatural. It is a very well written story that will keep you reading from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent time travel yarn April 8, 2014
By CB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was drawn to this book by an ad in Analog magazine. I was interested in how the author treated the possibility of modern people interacting with Jesus two thousand years ago. Interestingly, as I was reading this book I was also reading "Killing Jesus" by Bill O'Rielly. The descriptions of Roman soldiers and their lives, as well as the lives of ordinary people of the time, were strikingly similar. Cotton Davis certainly did his homework with regard to life in that era.

The plot moved along nicely throughout the book. The ending seemed to be a bit contrived, but I plan on buying the sequel to Time Warp Inc. to see if Mr. Davis resolves the issues he brought in at the end. All in all, a good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Author, great book September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a bit skeptical when I started reading this book - because it seemed a bit of a stretch to imagine going back to Jesus' time, but once I got started I could not put it down. Spell bounding and exciting. Well worth the low price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Conflicted... January 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Well… That was… interesting… Ok, truth be told, I’m really conflicted with this book, and believe you me, if you read it and manage NOT to get conflicted emotions yourself, then I’m gonnna find the nearest flat surface and bang my head on it – twice!

Gwen Hoffman is a historian working for TimeWarp, Inc. A shy mouse since childhood, Gwen is horrified to find out her new duties include not only briefing time-agent Sergeant Michael Garvin for his new mission to protect Jesus Christ from 21st century Iranian hitmen, but also pose as his girlfriend for the sake of the media. Mike terrifies her – his scarred face and dangerous aura proving too much for her bookwormish views – but she comes to find out there’s more to him that what meets the eye. Can she and Mike manage to balance their attraction to each other and survive the assassins going after them and the savior of humanity?

TimeWarp, Inc. is a book a sci-fi fan MUST try out just for the sake of fun. The concept of time-travelling was an intriguing one – as a Whovian, I couldn’t resist the theme – though, admittedly, the whole “let’s save Jesus Christ” thing was not one of the writer’s wisest ideas. It border-lined with certain religious matters, and it often forced the reader to choose a side. (NOTE: I recall mentioning in my Review Policy that I wouldn’t accept titles that had religious themes in them but, like I said, the time-travelling and rescue theme seemed like fun.)
While the book started out in a confusing manner, and the first chapter was a chore to read, once the second chapter kicked and I finally made sense of what I was reading, my interest instantly picked up. The writer sure knows his time-travel stuff. And reality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Historical Fiction April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a good read regardless of a belief in or no belief in Christianity. It's a chance to ask myself "What would I do under those circumstances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meet Jesus in this time travel adventure! April 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well done time travel adventure story, with an intriguing religious context. The tone is similar to Crichton's TIMELINE story, but farther back, in Biblical times. There is a fair amount of credible martial conflict, especially when a group of Iranian hit men show up, with the mission of killing Jesus, to preclude the rise of Christianity. The story is well crafted and mostly unpredictable, with a fair amount of interesting and occasionally ironic historical twists, reminiscent of some scenes in BACK TO THE FUTURE. Very.enjoyable, and hopefully we will see more such stories from Mr. Davis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable read March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is what fiction is all about - a great story, some factual basis, enough surprises for everyone and a good, fast-paced writing style.
Can't wait for the next Timewarp Inc adventure.

Time Warp, Inc. is the best novel I've read in years. It was nice visiting Christ during the lost years. I liked the romance between Mike and Gwen, too.
