Knot In Time is Alan Tucker's latest offering, and it's an action-adventure story about a young buck who gets himself mixed up with some guardians of time and what happens to him as a result.
Darius Arthur Heisenberg is a young man with no future, when he is recruited by the Time Keepers to help keep the threads of time from getting tangled up due to people's interference with the space-time continuum. He is trained to be a field agent, and his first assignment will be a doozy. In the future, there is a colony on Mars that is attacked by aliens. The Martians send an agent back to Earth to try to buy themselves some time to deal with the alien threat, and Darius ("Dare", as he likes to be called) is sent to stop this female agent from messing up Earth's past. The female agent turns out to be a whole lot of trouble, and Dare bounces around on Earth for a while, getting into increasingly hot water with this female agent, and then is taken to Mars when the female agent returns home. Things just get worse from there. There are many entanglements for Dare, with another female agent showing up, and various players on Mars getting involved, and then there are the aliens themselves, who are strangely familiar to Dare. The plot rolls along smartly until it all ties up neatly in the end.
This book starts out slowly and moves faster and faster as it goes along, as the plot twists and turns in all directions. You won't see a lot of the moves before they arrive, as new characters are introduced and old situations change quickly.Read more ›
Time travel in and of itself is a confusing and complex notion that, more often than not, leaves readers with more questions than answers. I think that any author with the guts to take on such a difficult plot will have a very hard time, especially when you take it a step further, introducing an infinite number of "threads" of time, as well as an organization that has the ability to be outside of time itself. Bringing all of this into a single book would be a very difficult thing to do, while still having your readers able to understand what's going on. And thus, my great respect for Mr. Alan Tucker, for he has done just that in Knot in Time. Mr. Tucker knows exactly how to write a book that people just want to keep reading. This book is packed with non-stop action and suspense, and will you finish it, you'll wonder to yourself where all those pages went, wishing that you could have them back.Read more ›
I read it from first page to last and enjoyed the ride. Dare is an engaging wise___s with noble scruples. Though irreverent he still exhibited compassion and backbone while trying to make sense of someone else's rules. I found him worth caring about as followed the nicely complex plot line.
I look forward to reading more about Dare's time with the Keepers .....even if the series wasn't originally written for old farts like me. Sometimes there just isn't a corner market on good writing.
