Blurb

In dystopian Maracore, all time travel devices are destroyed by the government. Their people live in fear of The Time Thief, a giant maleficent snake who devours time travel and the symbol of the government . Professor Elkstein's 'perfect creation' finds Laurie, a bartender who is thrown into a chase for the future of time-travel, with the professor's nephew, Bertholdt Elkstein as protection. But never underestimate courage.

The Necklace: Lost in Time

Ever wondered how time travelling with artefacts work? It is a lengthy complicated procedure.

First the artefact must be built with lightweight but sturdy metal. It must be able to withstand time and age. It must always have a fair amount of time and space particles inside in order to time travel.

But with great power comes great responsibility. Many try to use those artefacts for selfish intentions, like cheating death or to simply tamper with history. The main rule of time travelling is not to touch anything, for even the smallest accident has the biggest impact on the future.

Most of these artefacts were eventually destroyed. By either the anxious makers or by the threatened houses of politics. Nothing survived the destruction of time-travelling machines, watches, phones, nothing.

All but a single, beautiful hourglass necklace. It was the ultimate time travel device. It's maker, a Swedish Professor named Alexandre Elkstein found that his creation had perfected the use of time travel. So far there were no complications.

To protect the perfect time travel device, Alexandre opened a time and space portal and hurled the necklace inside. The portal closed long before authorities could arrest the professor for his creation.

The necklace continues to float, lost in space and time until The Chosen One is found. Only he or she could possess such an artefact and use it with great caution.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

spooky jedi: Love your story!I really hope more people read this story!Its amazing!! The plot is very unique and different, which is very good to have in a world full of stories.

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...
