What begins as an apparently minor time anomaly when medical student Felicia Sanchez is involved in a collision between a 2015 New Orleans bus and a 19th century New Orleans omnibus leaving her in 1857, eventually builds into a clash in which humans are threatened by a number of unworldly critters (some of which/whom are downright nasty). The cast of characters includes denizens of 1857, of 1961, of 2015 and of people (human or otherwise) whose origins are unspecified, such as Santiago who is both human and coyote, Yukiko, who is a woman and a fox, Huginn, a brilliant-strategist raven with amnesia, Pangur Ban, a cat who helps with his memory, a set of "guardians" named for the twelve months of the year, and many other delightful and less delightful actors.
While fighting to control time, which goes increasingly haywire, and to keep themselves and their planet alive despite the dubious "help" from the Twelve, the many characters lose each other under traumatic circumstances. In their desperation to find one another again they push time past the tipping point, resulting in chaos, which they scramble to resolve. The outcome, thanks to several exceedingly brave and daring actors, is a simplified time structure in which all are relatively safe.
The books are well-written, with highly complex plots, each guaranteed to keep you up all night. In fact, at times, particularly in the final volume, the complexity got out of hand and while the author managed to keep hold of all of her threads, at times I felt that simpler would have been better. This is why I deducted half a star.
