What if all our legends are true? A rousing, fast-paced novel of time travel unlike any other, from acclaimed author Wil McCarthy.

An intelligent, well written and thought provoking book that is also enjoyable and engrossing.
I think it's well written, with a well crafted plot and a fleshed out cast of characters.
It's not always an easy read and the pace is sometimes very slow.
All in all it was a good read.
Recommended!
Many thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
