4.0 out of 5 stars Good start to a fascinating series
I originally came across David’s writing when I read his Chung Kuo series and to be honest it was something that was not only epic but huge. It took time to get into the story and when added to the sheer scope kept the reader going long after the final page as they wondered what would happen in the next instalment.

Here in his newest series readers are...

3.0 out of 5 stars Broad but not that deep
Reasonable time travel tale with a few recycled ideas from other writers. The germanocentric nature of the plot felt a little bleak at times and I felt it overall to be a rather dispassionate experience. Always good to throw a bit of Hitler in though but so many have already been there.

I originally came across David’s writing when I read his Chung Kuo series and to be honest it was something that was not only epic but huge. It took time to get into the story and when added to the sheer scope kept the reader going long after the final page as they wondered what would happen in the next instalment.

Here in his newest series readers are taken on a tale of “what if” as the world revolves round a conflict between Russia and Germany over three centuries. Its captivating, it has a cracking set of characters and when added to a rich deep feeling to the piece all round generates something that I had a very hard time to put down. Back this up with great pace as well as some great dialogue and all round I was a more than happy reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes time travel to unexpected places, 26 April 2014
This review is from: The Empire of Time: Roads to Moscow: Book One (Kindle Edition)
Great writing

Complicated plot but the quality of the writing makes things clear. I love the history, so much I didn't know about.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Ordinary Time Travel Story, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a jewel. It's captivating and beautifully written - a multifaceted collision between a hundred characters over a hundred ages, that weaves itself backwards and forwards, but rather than lose you, somehow manages to take you along with it at breakneck speed. It's a totally addictive experience, a bit like Alfred Bester's the Stars My Destination.
if you've read any of David Wingrove's books before, you'll know to expect wheels-within-wheels and amazingly colourful broad sweeps of history, where you truly don't know what will happen next. Wingrove is not afraid to completely destroy the intricate worlds he builds, at the turn of a page. It's not about time travel, it's about people and what it does to them.
This book is Wingrove back to his masterful best - my book of the year for 2014
