Really fun book, I'll read the next one. Has character moments not just adventure / chaos of time travel. Nice to get your mind off of things.

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
