A time wave has altered the entire history of the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln followed Liam into the present from 1831 and now the world is in a dangerous state of limbo. If the TimeRiders can’t return Lincoln to the past, the Civil War will never end.
I like this series, I seem to find myself reading them, even though the characters seem to follow the same plot line in each book. I read 4 before 3, something I admonish my students not to do, but it was all good. What I really find fascinating is how the author takes a story, changes what happens to any historical figure and imagines how the future would turn out without that character. In this particular book, however, I cannot imagine that the Civil War would continue for as long as it does in altered time, as well as certain technologies never being invented, all because Lincoln isn’t President. I guess that’s makes me a reader and not a writer.
