Jeritt Troy is a Scourge, a guardian tasked with patrolling cracks in time and righting the unspoken wrongs in history. His next task is a killer-not just for him, but for his husband and partner, Frost Ramsey, because Jeritt's not just tracking a bad guy; he's tracking his previous partner-his best friend. Brekin Creed is as deadly as he's ever been, and when Jeritt finds ...more

I wanted to read this with an open mind and forget who the author is. Not the best of times to make such a decision, because I know from experience that Mary Calmes usually doesn't do as well with her short stories as with her novellas or novels. So I should probably have waited for a longer story before I tried this experiment. As I have said many times before; I have a love/hate relationship with Mary Calmes. There is something about the way her MC's receive instant love and acceptance that ha ...more
This story reminds me of the reason I never liked reading a time-leap story that allows alteration of the past. It becomes a pseudo-philosophical mumbling that the solution for inconsistent issues is merely by looking at what feels good to the author/readers.

Assuming that there are more than one path in time, which means a little change of event (no matter small) creates a chain of unlimited possible subsequent events, any story would privilege the one that the author wanted to tell and if the

Mary Calmes grabbed me by my mind and wound holding me by me heart with this touching short sci-fi story. The date is 4510 and the military has set up a
surveillance section to patrol cracks in time with agents called Scourges. Jeritt Troy is one such scourge who goes by the book never questioning authority. Jeritt and his husband, Frost Ramsey have been tasked with the job or retrieving the deadly ex-scourge Brekin Creed. Creed is li

'Judgment' is a great story and an amazing book: hot, action-packed, and thoughtfully written. And while it’s a great love story, it’s also much more. Mary Calmes has developed a world in 4510 where time travel technology is available, then looks at the consequences of that ability when left in human hands.

Jeritt is a loyal agent, a time scourge, who serves the organization patrolling cracks in time without thinking. He’s a good little soldier who follows orders first, asks questions later (if
Finally got around to reading this after I bought it a year ago. I enjoyed this a lot, though everything could have been fleshed out a lot more. The ending was very abrupt, and the pacing seemed a little off. Overall, it really needs to be expanded into a novel rather than a novel; form did not suit the work. Still worth a read, and interesting to see Calmes do sci fi.

Hm, a strange short story. Sure two main lovers are joined at the end, but even so, I simply couldn't connect with the storyline.

This is a story of many different relationships and factions coming together. Jeritt is in love with Frost, his husband and they're a team of time travelers. Jeritt is a Scourge and equipped with an embedded compass, keeps and watches over the shifts in time, correcting wrongs and setting paths to rights. He has one regret, however happy his current life is with Frost in the very distant future -- that he lost his relationship with
The story was a good read and I think it's the first sci-fi story Mary Calmes has tried to write and it wasn't really too bad but neither was it that great. The more books I read from Mary the more I want to see her writing evolve instead of seeing the same thing with a little variation because of the different characters. Anyway onto the what I have to say about the story.

3.5 stars.
I loved the world-building and that in this time-travel story the characters live far in the future and come back to our time period. It's a nice twist on the usual direction of travel. I didn't click as much with Troy, the main character, as I would have liked, and felt some of his understanding about his old partner, Creed, was rushed and not well-supported. We could have used more backstory of those two men as partners for that to feel more complete and believable. I wanted to know

There is not really a lot I can say about this book. It's a lot like many of Calmes' books, simple and quick. The actual world of this story is pretty complicated. With the time traveling and I am not completely clear on how everything worked, but still it made sense.

It would be great if this author had a story where she built up the love story. She kind of does this in A Matter of Time, but that happens over several installments. I mean experiencing the characters meet, where they don't jump a

Why isn't this longer?!?! I usually stay away from time travel/sci fi stories like these but I love Mary Calmes and I loved this story. I so wish this was a lot longer because I loved the characters and I love the possibilities of adventures these guys could go on. How awesome would this be as a series?!

Short, action packed, and romantic. I love that the Troy had to figure out his own sins and that the bad guy was complex and redeemable. It even had two of my favorite side-bennies of good sci-fi-- self-realization and a language quirk-- I've been using the word "wretch" as an adjective all day!
Not Mary Calmes best book but worth reading. *spoiler* I especially liked the change in perspective between the man who first arrived and the man who lived to the point where he first arrived. It's really showing how belief and perspective color our experience of reality.
Ah~ Time travel... ever the Paradox.

Heh, I really loved this story! I wish there was a bit more.... but then, I always wish that don't I? lol...
A great action packed short read. ;)
