Timeline Series #2
Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy
Jerry Daniels is back for this sequel to the original book Tracers. He is a bit older, wiser and much more powerful. It required massive amounts of damage to have killed off the entire Royal family and Jerry is determined to find out how and why, hopefully before those behind it decide to unleash their power onto the mortals of the world.
The characters and their background stories are very well developed and realistic. Well, their reactions and emotions are believable, as supreme beings with supernatural powers and the ability to travel through time at will can't exactly be called reaistic. But this is precisely what makes science fiction so much fun. It stretches the realm of the possible and gives the mind something to chew on.
This novel is an excellent follow up to the first book despite some editing errors. Gilden leaves just enough unresolved threads in the storyline for readers to want to continue on with the tale, without dangling us over a cliff hanger. I, for one, am looking forward to finding out what happens in the next book to come.
