Finally, we get to time travel, if you are a science techie, sorry, no nuts and bolts, just the concept. There are of course twists and turns, a couple of which, either I didn't understand, or were glossed over. But if you want a book that you have to think about, I'd recommend this book. You might want to take notes.
Top international reviews
Phil mentioned to her that he had written a time travel novel and knowing that I enjoyed reading that genre, mentioned it to me when she got home. I immediately downloaded the book, not really knowing what it was about and not bothering to read any of the reviews, if there were any.
There are a lot of self published time travel novels on Amazon and a lot of them are dire. But let me say that this is not one of them, it is very well written and pretty well edited. This is often the problem with self publishing. Those writers who have a publisher have the advantage of professional editors, who iron out all the typos, grammatical errors, inaccuracies and inconsistencies. Self publishers generally have to rely upon themselves, or perhaps willing family and friends. The results are often appalling, but not so in this case.
I did notice, a few editing flaws but pointing them out would be pedantic.
Set in the near future, Private Ash Fleabourne is a failed soldier. Only just scrapping through basic training he's not suited to combat but he is intelligent and finds himself posted to the Army Intelligence Centre . But due to the influences of his radical girlfriend Connie (well he thinks she's his girlfriend) ends up attempting to steal classified images and is facing a dishonourable discharge and 30 years in prison.
General Nathaniel Harper now appears on the scene and offers Ash an alternative. The army has a new piece of hardware and needs a test pilot. There's a maximum 60% chance it will work and the pilot will survive. They don't want to waste a good man and so that's where Fleabourne comes in. If he agrees and survives, he will be given an honourable discharge and no prison sentence.
It doesn't take much imagination to realise what the new piece of hardware is and that's where the adventure starts. If you enjoy time travel, I think you'll enjoy this well written debut novel.
