During a perfect spring evening on Nantucket, a violent storm erupts and a dome of crawling, colored fire blankets the island. When the howling winds subside and the night skies clear, the stars appear to have shifted. The mainland has become a wilderness of unbroken forest, where tools of bronze and stone litter the beaches, and primitive natives scatter in terror. A startling phenomenon has occurred: The island of Nantucket has been swept into the long-ago past. With its inhabitants adrift in the year 1250 BC, there is only one question to be answered: Can they survive? Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • Bravo! A masterpiece! The definitive novel about castaways in time. Robert J. Sawyer, Nebula Award-winning author of The Terminal Experiment
  • “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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 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 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 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Fred | 2/14/2014

    " 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! "
