John Wolff has been handed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Again.
He’s already saved the love of his life from an early death – thirty years after she died.
Now, a beautiful young woman, who is clearly his daughter, has appeared from the timeline branch where that same love of his life survived and married his counterpart.
She says they need his help fighting off invaders from the far future. Who, by the way, are looking for him. Why? Because they want the starship drive he and a friend invented, the precursor to their time machine. Problem is, in her timeline, it hasn’t been invented yet.
What man can resist a cry for help from his own daughter?
Particularly when the invaders think she’s a saint. Or possibly, a devil wearing saint’s clothing. And they’re looking for her, too.
Thus begins the Timelines Saga, and the story of the Lion of God.
A novel, about 100,000 words (290 pages), first in a planned three-book series. Intended for adults (18+) (language and violence), although personally I was reading stuff like this when I was in my early teens. On Kindle, it’s rated 18+; however, I’d prefer to give it a “15 and up” guidance.
This book fits into Military Science Fiction, Hard Science Fiction, and Time Travel Science Fiction sub-categories. It’s the kind of thing I prefer to read myself.
The question of whether or not I will ever do more fantasy is pretty much dependent on whether or not I dream any more of it up.
