Against the Tide of Years continues the adventures of the Nantucket residents who have been transported through time to the Bronze Age. In the years since their arrival, the fledging Republic of Nantucket has striven to better the primitive world in which they now exist. Their prime concerns are establishing a constitution and handling the waves of immigrants from the British Isles. But a renegade time traveler plans his own future by forging an empire for himself based on conquest by modern technology. The Republic has no alternative but to face the inevitable war brought on by one of their own.

    " 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. "
