Editorial Reviews

Review

"Palma makes his U.S. debut with the brilliant first in a trilogy, an intriguing thriller that explores the ramifications of time travel in three intersecting narratives." -- starred "Publishers Weekly" review

"Strange and wonderful. Magical and smart. Felix J. Palma has done more than written a wonderful novel, he's concocted a supernatural tour de force. Time travel, tragic love, murder and mystery all combine in what is nothing short of a surprising, satisfying and mesmerizing read." - M.J. Rose, International Bestseller

""The Map of Time" recalls the science fiction of Wells and Verne, and then turns the early masters on their heads. A brilliant and breathtaking trip through metafictional time." --Scott Westerfeld, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Leviathan"

"Lyrical storytelling and a rich attention to detail make this prize-winning novel an enthralling read." --starred "Library Journal" Review

"Readers who embark on the journey...will be richly rewarded. --starred "Booklist" review

"Palma uses the basic ingredients of steampunk -- fantasy, mystery, ripping adventure and Victorian-era high-tech -- to marvelous effect. " --"Seattle Times"

"'Intellectual thriller' is not an oxymoron in this case. Eccentric, informed. Time travel, H.G. Wells, Jack the Ripper, robots, romance, changing history, destroying classic literature. Spot on narration. Good clean fun." --"Tulsa World"

""The Map of Time "is a singularly inventive, luscious story with a core of pure, unsettling weirdness. With unnerving grace and disturbing fantasy, it effortlessly straddles that impossible line between being decidedly familiar, and yet absolutely new." --Cherie Priest, author of "Boneshaker"

"Palma is a master of ingenious plotting." --"Kirkus Reviews"



"A big, genre-bending delight." --"The Washington Post"
