The utopian culture known as the People have a problem: two of them have travelled back to Earth's past, to the ancient city of Babylon. A treaty makes time tourism illegal, and to avoid an intergalactic war, or the destruction of Babylon, Benny must go back in time to retrieve the errant People.

This is, however, anything but a fairly standard novel. Kate Orman draws the readers into the struggles of archaeologist Bernice Summerfield, who finds herself on a race against time to remove two rogue travelers whose very presence endangers all of Earth's history.
As strong as the plotting itself is, it's the little details that help carry the book forward. Bernice's characterization is incredibly strong, and it's one of the few books where you can really feel the clock ticking, through the characters's tension and emotion which oozes through the page.
Lyrical, witty, and brave; WALKING TO BABYLON is Kate Orman at the top of her game.
Simply put, this is the best of the New Adventures so far. I read the entire book in one sitting. Could not put it down. I enjoy all the stories that feature God and The People.
So why should somebody buy it? Simply put, Bernice Summerfield might be the most interesting character in series science fiction today, especially the way Kate Orman imagines her. Long live Bernice!
