The storyplot starts with an old friends' meeting in 2030, where one of the characters begin to tell a story. After this, a fully different, futuristic-like world dominated by Neanderthals is introduced to the reader. An expedition of two men, a woman and an assistant android leaves Earth in a high-tech spacecraft, pretending to time travel into the future by rotating Mars around at 99% of speed of light.
After this journey, the novel then continues in past times before the action focuses on the epoch of the Kingdom of Granada in Spain during the Late Middle Age . Later, all of the different elements in the story line become related in such an unexpected way the reader will be truly amazed about!
With a clear, easy-to-follow writing style, this short book offers the reader a really enjoyable time. In addition to this, some historical and scientific background complements the plot in an accesible way, so that everybody can learn new interesting information without getting frightened about it. The open ending suggests that Seconds could be followed by a sequel; I am definitely looking forward for the author's future work. Meanwhile... if you want to discover something new in sci-fi world, this is your book.
