The author’s research is offered with an satisfyingly light and natural touch, extending beyond convincing details of weapons into medicine, astronomy and more. As this tribe of time-displaced explorers copes with indigenous enemies, old traditions, and new ills, they'll find that quests for vengeance and forgiveness clash as surely as personalities. Cultural taboos insert their curious rules, and a man who’s struggled to value himself learns his strengths and weaknesses.
Conflict stands alone as a smoothly written, wisely engineered and researched novel that blends myth, science, mystery and history. But an overarching tale casts a recurring shadow, and more novels must surely be in the works. They’ll be well worth looking out for.
Disclosure: I bought it on a deal.
For the minuses there were only two. First In several places the author just jumped forward in time without any explanation or any seeming rhyme or reason. it didn't happen too often but there was no lead up or explanation just bamn we jumped forward in the plot with no prior lead up. Second with no lead up, literally, we find out that the MC centralized all the guns in the armory during the night and that they were stolen. First no chapters planning to steal them. Second no chapters where he convinces everyone, including his companions who had been attacked during the night before to give up all their guns during night time and put them in one central/unguarded location. This seemed like authorial fiat messing around with the story. There was no lead up on the enemy side. And considering they previously only survived in this world by being heavily armed during a night attack it just didn't make sense for them do have done it this way.
Baring that it was a decent story and I really enjoyed it.
Walt Socha has crafted an engaging tale of survival on a wild continent centuries before the European exodus here. This is a well-researched tale that resonates with authenticity. The characters are complex, the story is compelling, and the climactic battle at the end will leave you breathless.
Alternate reality or time traveling, neither the protagonists or I are sure what happen. A group of young adults end up leaving a dude ranch and ending up nearly 1000 years in the past. The group discovers that the past much as the future is fraught with danger and potential.
Joe has a good heart and is suffering from nightmares when he suddenly finds himself as a leader of a band of mismatched adventurers. Thrust into Pennsylvania Indian history, the group finds themselves unknowingly tasked to change the future.
The struggle Joe has with age and adulthood smacked of realism. The incursion of Mississippi river culture into Pennsylvania is theoretically accurate. Socha did a nice job setting up a culture and how it handled different types of invasion.
This appears to be the first in a series, I look forward to reading more.
