In the years since the Event, the Republic of Nantucket has done its best to re-create the better ideas of the modern age. But the evils of its time resurface in the person of William Walker, renegade Coast Guard officer, who is busy building an empire for himself based on conquest by technology. When Walker reaches Greece and recruits several of their greater kinglets to his cause, the people of Nantucket have no choice. If they are to save the primitive world from being plunged into bloodshed on a twentieth-century scale, they must defeat Walker at his own game: war. Download and start listening now!

  • “This fun, intelligent series is perfect not only for action-adventure, alternate history, time travel, and military-SF fans but also for epic fantasy readers, for Burroughs and Haggard fans craving a modern update of the lost-civilization novel, and for anyone who loves Patrick O’Brian’s sensational sea battles.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Strong characterizations, high historical scholarship, superior narrative technique, excellent battle scenes, and awareness of social and economic as well as technological factors in evidence.”


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jennifer | 2/17/2014

    " This time-travel series is a lot of fun. I'm not a fan of cliff-hanger endings but I'll probably take the bait and get the next installment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mieczyslaw Kasprzyk | 2/16/2014

    " Having read "Island in the Sea of Time in the middle of November I just couldn't wait to see what happened and to get on the next stage of this exciting adventure... and I was not let down! Absolutely brilliant! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Fejas | 2/7/2014

    " In the same line as the first book in the series, but perhaps too close to that first book to stand out by itself. It felt like it dragged a bit at parts, just setting up the stage for the third book. Mind you, it's not enough to keep me from wanting to read that third book, which I plan to do soon. Still, it gets only 3 stars as opposed to the 4 I gave book 1. "

    " Part 2 of the Captain's favorite time-travel/alternate-history series. "
