I picked up 2 of Thomas F. Monteleon's works at half-priced books, sorta on a whim. They were only a dollar each, and looked interesting. The first one I read was "Guardian." Though that was well written and easy to read, the story got confusing and erratic...just didn't sit well with me. I kept putting off reading "The Time Connection" because of the ambivelent feelings I had towards "Guardian." Finally had nothing better to do, and read "The Time Connection"...I really had a good time with this one.
Basically, it's a story of a man and a woman who stumble (or perhaps are led), into our world... a thousand yrs. in the future.
There has been a cataclysmic war between humans and an alien race in this time, that seems to have led to the annihilation of the human race. It has also led to a "near" destruction of the aliens who attacked us.
But, not is all what it appears to be.
There appears to be unseen plans in motion. And the couple who have stumbled into this futuristic earth, unbeknownst to them, find themeselves pivotal to those plans.
Easy and fun book to read. I devoured it in one 3 hour sitting.
This was his second novel I believe, written in 1976. I guess it's probably pretty hard to find now. I'm glad I happened onto it. Would make a good movie.
