At first the discovery of minus time seemed like a blessing. Countries at war could fight their battles in the past rather than destroy the present.

But now the situation was desperate. Humanity faced the danger of a temporal split, with incalculable consequences, as a result of attempts to change the past.

So Captain Lucas Priest, a seasoned veteran of the Temporal Corps,

Now the real story starts to become apparent, yes the idea of fighting your battles in the past hidden amongst the historical conflicts may not have been appealing but the realisation that even greater stakes are now becoming apparent suddenly puts things in to perspective and the conflict though none the less real and lethal take on a whole new importance. After all who knew if one false move meant that you could never return back to the future you knew and loved. I am sure like many historical ...more

This is the second book in the Time Wars series, and it's not quite as good as the first, but still pretty good: well worth reading if you liked the first.

Update: The original comments were from a couple of years ago. I still rate this with four stars, although I'm still laughing at one particular tavern scene early in the book. It had me laughing out loud last night...I'd forgotten. That might earn another half star.

The second TimeWars book involves conspiracy (obviously), musketeers, adventure, double-crossers, and a fast-paced plot that will keep any time travel fan entertained for sure. I highly enjoyed this and look forward to reading book three: The Pimpernel Plot.

Četla se relativně hezky, docela se mi líbil menší okruh hlavních postav s různě propojenými vztahy, jen jsem občas v ději ztrácela a zcela ho nechápala. Ale hezké. :-)

If I remember the Three Musketeers correctly, this follows that plot quite closely. Of course with the perspective of the time agents.
