It’s spring on Nantucket and everything is perfectly normal—until a sudden storm blankets the entire island. When the weather clears, the island’s inhabitants find that they are no longer in the late twentieth century … but have been transported instead to the Bronze Age! Now they must learn to survive with suspicious, warlike people they can barely understand and deal with impending disaster in the shape of a would-be conqueror from their own time.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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 Reviews

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Anne | 2/20/2014

    " I enjoyed the idea of the book and some of the scholarly details put into the book, but I did not think the writing was different/unique. I may read other books in the series just to see what happens when they all do get to Egypt and how the Nantucket settlement develops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Aaron Anderson | 2/19/2014

    " I've definitely read this trilogy before, at least once, maybe twice. It wasn't quite as good as I remembered, but still worthy of reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Damian | 2/17/2014

    " My favorite alternate history series. There's been a lot of these published in the past decade and this trilogy is by far the best (imho). The only thing that might bug some folks is the whole "Nantucket is spontaneously teleported back to ancient times without any explanation whatsoever" premise. If you can get over that and just go with the story you're in for a great time. "

    " This book was freaking awesome. Not 100% realistic to military standards but what sci-fi book is? If you love the idea of time travel, or alternate realities this is the book for you. I am dying to get my hands on the next book in the series! "
