Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.
Where do you start with a review of an AMAZING Time Traveling book about a totally unique/fast paced/nail biting, addictive scavenger hunt through alternate timelines (past, present and future), zombie planets, with pirate tricking, assassin dodging, unlikely alliance making, crazy/deadly religious zealots and oh so much more. Yes I'm aware of the rambling but this book has left me ranting to anyone who will stand still long enough for me to tell of the magic that is this book! Now those who know me might point out that I am a HUGE sucker for a good Time Travel book but Chronothon wasn't just good, not even very good, it was AWESOME! The action is non stop from the very first page until the very last (a good attribute to have). The science is laid out plausibly (important). The writing is wonderful (very important). The world and character building are done with such skill and with such a uniquely creative tone that I have been left rambling and singing its praises (absolutely imperative for a 5 star book). Mr Van Coops gets his characters into some pretty unbelievable situations and more importantly he doesn't take the easy ways out which is too often the case in books about Time Travel. I really enjoyed the first book( In Times Like These), I'm blown away by book two (Chronothon) and I (uncharacteristically) cannot put into words just how much I am looking forward to book three.
