Endless Sky is the beginning of a time travel/sci-fi thriller "series", that I am so excited hearing there will be more. Mr Land opens this story as we meet American Scott McIntyre and German soldier Norbert Beacker, meeting as enemies during the battle of the Bulge in 1945.Both men meet at a moment in time when a space ship is disabled and a creature falls to the snow. Their lives will be forever changed!!!
Through this story we time jump from 1945 Earth to 2075 Mars and many other points in-between; times and places in the past and future. We learn more about these two men who have become `a team' to help return the injured alien (who is now in stasis) home to be healed. But how are they going to do this???
Norbert is a brilliant mechanical engineer, Scott is a simple American who got caught up in the war and now has made an admirable promise he wishes to keep. Mr Land also introduces an array of secondary characters who are so fleshed out you see them as real. Chonata Wattanapun we meet when the duo are stranded on a rice patties in Thailand. This wonderful woman takes the trip of a lifetime with these two men adding to the team and becoming Scott's love. Chon is able to `read ' people and helps choose the crew they will need for this endeavor. Also up front are Deshawn the security head and Onatah their XO.
This story once you start reading, immerses you in how this author has the reader jump through time with the team to just learn something that can help them in their plan and then go back to build what they need. Incredibly interesting, and not a boring word written, keeps the reader totally onboard with `the plan' Inciteful background, wonderful humor and lighthearted moments between Scott and Chon and Norbertand and some steamy scenes with Scott and Chon.
I am happy to see there will be a book two and I am thrilled I will get to see more adventures Mr Land will come up with. Stuart you got me again!!!1
I've likened Stuart Land's writing style to that of the lost breed of writers such as Fitzgerald, to painting a picture, to down and dirty, to rip roaring hilarious, I've even challenged him to a good old fashioned game of mad libs, he is just that versatile and talented. Once again, he brings us into a new genre, that of time travel/science fiction and once again he does it in his own unique style. He shows us the horrific world of war with "Pine oil, burnt powder, and a blood haze swirled together, drifting over the ground, coating the men .....with a stench they would never be able to clear from their memories" and effortlessly gives us humor to bring us down from the hell we've been living through as a fellow soldier asks for a light with "That would be, Sergeant Bud to you, corporal. Just hold your hand up. Something burning will pass by quick enough." As I've said before the man is a master, how can you not smell the gunpowder and feel the horror along with the men?
We wander back and forth through time with Scott, Norbert and beautiful Chonalata Wattanapun who joins them later. We travel from 1945 Earth to 2078 Mars and points in between, as the trio searches for the technology necessary to fulfill their pledge and get their injured comrade home. The three of them will jump back in time in order to influence the discoveries needed and jump forward to put them into use.
Scott is just a good old American fellow. He is honest, and when he makes a promise, he's bound to keep it no matter what the consequences to himself. What he lacks in book smarts, he more than makes up for in charisma and leadership skills. Norbert, on the other hand, is as smart as they come, a mechanical engineer building racing motors before the war, he designed the diesel engines for the German panzer during the war and after the war made a fortune rebuilding Germany. The two are opposites, but work well together and are dedicated to each other and their quest. Chon is just the balance the two men need, beautiful, smart and cheeky she plays Scott's assistant in public and his lover in private. Chon has the ability to read people and uses it, along with her wit, to recruit Scott's crew. The crew is rounded out with Samuel Ackerman, chief weapon's officer, his son Randy is the chief con-tech and countermeasure expert. The last two senior members of the crew are DeShawn and Onatah. DeShawn is a beautiful man with bronze skin, a naturally sculptured face and the body of a warrior. Onatah has exotic looks but also has a boisterous sense of humor and can hold her own with just about any man. Oil and water, they work well together, DeShawn as head of security and Onatah as Scott's XO.
While I love Mr. Land's writing and have read just about everything he's written I have to admit this book was a little difficult to read. The time jumping was confusing even though we got chapter headings telling us what time we were in. It took me about a quarter a way through the book to understand what was happening. That issue aside, this is an interesting book with a great cast of characters and good story. Once the reader gets a handle on the time travel, there is enough action, adventure, humor and even a little sex to keep you on your toes and interested. This is the first book in a series and I can't wait to see what's next for Scott and gang.

A dying Alien crashes on earth during the end of World War II saving the life of an army Sergeant about to be killed or captured by the Germans during a battle. The dying alien that saved him caused Scott to promise to help her and prevent her from dying. The German private at the scene is also saved but only Scott was transported out of the battle zone into the future where he learns from the almost human robot that controls the ship how to save the female alien. Moving through time with the Robot's help. Scott recruits the German soldier who is also an engineer that saw him being whisk away during the battle. He adds one more to the circle that goes through time to get or create the technology that would enable Scott to return the dying alien home to get medical help. A very good read and adventure.
