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.

About the Book:
This story opens with Mike Garvin, ex-Special Forces sergeant fighting inside Caesar's forces. Garvin has been embedded in the time of Julius Caesar for over nine years and fully expects to live out his life there when Len Harper, chief administrator, shows up.
As much as Garvin hates it, he must return to the twenty-first century. Someone has leaked valuable time travel technology and that information has found its way into Iranian hands. Now they have the capability to travel through time and they intend to use it to change the balance of power in the present. But the Iranian plot to kill Jesus ,before he can influence the world, has found its way back to the powers in the United States. Garvin's new time travel assignment is to protect Jesus at all costs.
Little did Garvin know he would fall for anyone before he left on assignment, especially for Gwen, a mousey girl (at first), or that his feelings would be his ultimate downfall. But neither did Gwen realize, as she was ordered to train Garvin, she was about to meet her first true love nor that she would land in the time of Jesus!
There is romance, intrigue, spying, and of course religion discussion from all sides (believers, agnostics, and atheists) which all work to keep this book interesting and moving.

My Take:
There are so many things to love about this book. Davis does a fine job of creating a cast of characters, each distinctive from the others; each with some pretty clear motivations. The main setting for each of the three major parts of the story are clearly described without weighing down the story. In fact, Davis knows how to give enough detail about persons and places for us to feel a part of the story without slowing the reader down - something that takes real talent.

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.

Format: Paperback
So far, the reviews I've read on this book have been highly positive and I feel like I'm going to buck the trend here. In general, the book was a fun read (I love a good time travel tale) and if time travel ever existed for real, the books main destination and time would probably be mine as well (for historical reasons).

I have a minor nit with the editor...C'mon you really couldn't have seen stupid things like double commas ",," and a line split off mid sentence?

MINOR SPOILER ALERT
===================
As a new author, I suppose a degree of forgiveness at the largely unsophisticated language could be allowed. Maybe that's why the book wasn't published with one of the larger publishing houses. The language of dialog of the book had almost a juvenile flavor to it, very flat, and very predictable. The dialog and movement of action could be comparable to comic book style. I found my self slapping my forehead in disbelief at some of the banal/cliche dialog and romance throughout the book. It almost killed the entire reading experience.

The villains were very one dimensional...almost comical. When you see them in the car, I get a picture of the old Batman series in my head and the evil guys planning their big caper secretly in their vehicle. The terrorists had zero depth. The author missed a big chance to strongly develop a bigger sense of tension and suspense by building out the terrorists, maybe by seeing part of the tale through their perspective.

The romance and romantic dialog could have been taken from Sesame Street...completely juvenile and really took away from keeping the reader immersed. My main reaction to the romance writing in the book....GAG...terrible.
