There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The action scenes are quite satisfying but it seems like we are in a house of mirrors with characters coming and going and it started rewriting itself as we move through it. I think the story would have been improved if it has been simplified. I'm glad that I read it but I do not feel that I wish to continue further.

The storyline dips in and out of historical events (whilst taking liberties at times because of the time travel changes), but it is sloppy with them. Some of the historical detail is simply incorrect, or misused. That detracts from the overall enjoyment.
The main characters also seem inconsistent, at times being very mature individuals and then seemingly quite adolescent. Perhaps there's a bit of confusion over the target audience which, at times, felt as though it was meant to be YA.
So, the series overall is reasonable, but presents a bit of a mixed bag of quality and consistency.
This book however is a masterpiece. It puts random events juxtaposed for no apparent reason. There is something like a full size time-travelling submarine apparently designed and built by two people. It is equipped with all manner of devices that they also built. Again, this was excruciating, but just tolerable. However, when I came across 'time cannons' and 'temporal phase induction' I gave up. Dross like this belongs in the 1970s with E.E. Smith.
This reads like the imagination from an adult version of Calvin as in Calvin and Hobbes. The imagination of a 6 year old with the vocabulary of a 25 year old (but with cringeworthy misuse of words at times). Characters that seem prominent at the beginning of book 1 are discarded for no reason, again, just to move the plot along or maybe to fill the word-count. Most of the characters are flat, barely more than names. All of them are unbelievable.
I expect more from books that I buy, and so should you.
