The year is 2133 and the Nazis control the world. Four scientists are pressured to complete a Time Travel project in time for the 200th anniversary of Hitler’s coming to power. A plan is hatched to change history, as the four scientists are transported back to Berlin in 1938. Two SS agents from the future chase the scientists back in time, carrying with them the most hideous weapons of the 22nd century. After the war, the lives of everyone on Earth are threatened by powerful aliens with their own designs for our planet. In this story of remarkable heroism and friendship, will the forces of good defeat the forces of evil and rescue mankind from an unthinkable future? Only Time Will Tell . . .

 

To be presented with a book that claims that “certain facts, unknown to history, are woven into the story” and that time travel may have actually been one of those facts- obviously peaked my interest.  In this “story” characters from our past, which includes Winston Churchill, President Roosevelt and Albert Einstein meet with the main character Jeff when he was a younger man.

An aged Jeff tells a nursing home employee the incredible story of being born in 2101 and of later becoming a scientist who worked on a time travel experiment in order to change his timeline in which Nazi’s controlled the world he lived in.  Jeff ultimately leaves his life behind and takes the leap back into time to change his history and what could have been our future.

This is a very compelling story and it will make you wonder: Could this be real?  Also woven into this novel is a side story that involves alien encounters from other worlds. The alien tale, which involves Area 51, comes in during the second half of the book.  At this point, the believability level fell somewhat and it took away some of the intrigue from the time travel portion of the story- but the book still held a fascination that kept me reading.

In this life we live we should always keep an open mind. It stimulates us and most importantly it keeps our brains and imaginations healthy.

I give Time Will Tell 4 stars.

For the first time, human and elf must shed blood as one, in order to stem the tide of evil. But new hope has arisen. From across the Western Abyss, a people long forgotten have returned. However, hope comes at its own price. Gewey must choose between his bond of love, and his duty to the world he is struggling to save.

Gewey is faced with several challenges in book three that he must overcome if he is ever going to be able to save the world. On a very personal level he is in danger of losing the bond of love between himself and Kaylia as another very bold and interested female makes her presence in the story. And then if that is not enough- a long and hard journey through the slow sands of a desert pushes Gewey up against a fate and destiny that he no longer has the option to ignore.

To get the full story, if you haven’t already- read books one and two in The Godling Chronicles series.  It’s an entrancing story about Gods, elves and humans and the amazing world that they live in.

As I picked up book three, I was excited to immerse myself back into Gewey’s world to see what he and all of his friends were up to. I was also very interested in whether the author could continue to weave his story telling magic and keep up the pace of books one and two.  After reading book three, I was stunned! Books one and two were exceptionally good- but book three was better yet! The flow of the story was very easy to follow and the anticipation and excitement level kept the pages turning nonstop.

It is very easy to see how  this author has The Godling Chronicles climbing the best seller charts. It is an epic tale that has “Make it into a movie!” all over it.

I give The Godling Chronicles: The Shadow Of Gods 5 stars.
