“I was intrigued on page 1; all the following pages mesmerized & compelled me to keep reading.”
Mr. Alatorre has quickly become one of my favorite authors.
His imagination astounds me, with each book different and original.
His thorough research is obvious in the myriad of details that build the story.
The characters are believable, the heroes very likable and the villains despicable.
“What would you do with a time machine?” College grad paleontologists dig up just such a machine and, one by one, they can’t resist taking a ride.
The results are nasty, nearly fatal.
Even so, temptation overcomes the danger.
The book also explores the very real, ferocious battles faced by paleontologists and archaeologists for ownership of their discoveries. Scientists, colleges, landowners, corporations and even the federal government get tangled up in espionage, with lots of lawyers thrown in. Nefarious elements try to flat-out steal artifacts.
The suspenseful plot twists around human nature, the supernatural ability to transcend time, a blooming romance, and the desperate lies and greed in the fast-moving ownership struggle. The team needs to evade all of dangerous people to stay alive.
Mr. Alatorre has quickly become one of my favorite authors. His imagination astounds me, with each book different and original. His thorough research is obvious in the myriad of details that build the story. The characters are believable, the heroes very likable and the villains despicable.
The ending of this book is bittersweet yet satisfying.
I loved every well-crafted word!

It’s a time machine.Testing delivers disastrous results, sending one team member to the hospital and nearly killing another. When word leaks about the discovery, the ultimate power struggle ensues: the university wants it for funding, the power company wants its energy regenerating abilities kept under wraps, and a rival group wants to steal it for themselves. No one cares if Barry’s team comes out alive.Fleeing for their lives, the students must fight the school, the police, and each other if they want to learn the truth about what they’ve discovered – a truth with more severe consequences than any of them can predict.
