Well! I was most definitely pleasantly surprised. Reading a book about a boy who bends time and space to solve the mystery of his mother's murder, to find love, to hang out with a group of history's beloved characters, including outlaw Jesse James and to fight - eventually ending up in the literal version of Eden, a kind of alternate dimension, does not sound like your "normal" read. But it's brilliant for fans of sci-fi and fantasy, and the language and relationships and the world that the author illustrates for you is so exquisite, you'll find yourself getting drawn into the story even if this isn't your usual kind of read.
Rolland is abandoned and left to fend for himself - without a home, mind - when his mother dies. His father leaves him. He tries to live out of his car, attend school, and maintain a normal life but quickly finds that this is pretty much impossible without a home and some semblance of a normal life. Then, some things happen - I don't want to tell you the details, because I want you to discover them for yourself - and Rolland discovers that he can control the flow of time, from very slooowww to very FAST.Read more ›
I also liked that the non-fiction background of the author meant that the story came across in a very different way. It was told as if all events were factual, rather than a fictional story. I thought it really made the read very different.
As it is the first in a series, it does take on a lot at once, trying to give you background, world details and character details, personalities and powers/responsibilities. It does mean that this read is very intricate, but I rather enjoyed that part about it. I do think that the books will be less dense, with detail, once the author has laid the groundwork, but if you are a lover of intricately woven tales, you’ll like this.
I loved the characters in the story. They were really fun to read about and it was great to have a story that told the ‘true’ story of several different characters we’ve all be read to told stories about. I found the characters had a lot of depth and their personalities match what I though they should, in comparison to their tale.
Overall, this was a good read. It is intricate and written in a very different way, making it a large attempt by the author, but I think he really pulled it off. I am keen to see where this series leads.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Along the way he fights with and against various historical figures such as Joan of Arc, Jessie James etc. I really liked this fresh take and blending of different genres and styles. You have the classic revenge tale, the sci fi time travelling and historical settings and fiction all mixed together. I liked this as it gave fresh new angles to age old themes.
The characters are very well written and the story flows really really well, making a long ish book go by super quickly. The characters fantastic and have been crafted beautifully, you really feel for Rolland and want him to succeed. All in all I highly recommend this story.
