Bottom line, is that this book should be moved to a movie format. It might take some minor adjustments, but the storyline lends itself extermely well to an action movie. Bring it on.
I don't even know where to start with this review! This was a story unlike anything I've EVER read before, and I loved it.
I don't really know how to classify this...Sci-FI for the time travel, Erotica (possibly) because the topic was skirted around (but not really delved into), Fantasy for "other" species- how about this: It was definitely unique and defies classification.
Let's start from the beginning, I know the "blurb" is very detailed - so I'm not going to summarize the story but there are a few things I need to touch upon:
First of all, the beginning of the story was a bit confusing for me as each chapter starts with 2 dates - one in the future, and one in the ancient past.
There are 3 sets of "characters" that are featured, and it wasn't until maybe 10-15% that I "finally" got it. (duh!)
Our main character, Nate, is out at the bar with some buddies looking for a "forever" girl that he can take home to his momma. Ultimately he allows his "2nd head" to choose a cougar to sate his needs. This one decision has PROFOUND effects (lucky for us, or there wouldn't be a fantastic story).
Once he fulfills his obligations as a "lothario" for the cougar and her friends, he decides a sabbatical is in order.
This is the point where EVERYTHING is flipped/turned upside down and the story really begins.
Nate finds himself with Jane (cougar) and Amanda (cougar's "friend") on a bed in the middle of ancient Rome, during the rule of Caligula.
Being "barbarians" doesn't bode well for the 3 and they are quickly sold into slavery.
The odd thing is, Nate is noticing people that are similar to the one's he left behind from his life.
We get to meet MANY interesting characters and participate in amazing things: the Colosseum and Gladiators (Spartacus!), the Senate and Forum, Hippocrates, just to list a few.
The story is complex, many different characters and story-lines are woven together and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read what's next for the trio!
