I loved another of Ore's books (_Becoming Alien_). This book is a fun swipe at us from folk who have time traveled to a timeframe in a near future: "...The future ran on almost imaginary machines...future people took their marvels for granted and complained over trifles." However, I did not feel as connected to the characters in this book -- at least not until the final hundred pages or so. Not strong enough to warrant a sequel... ( )

Started out pretty good, but totally fell apart in the middle to the point where I could not make my eyes focus on the page any more. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380792524, Paperback)

Earth, 2308. Multiple pandemic plagues have ravaged the earth beyond recognition. Working desperately, the Philadelphia National Archives uses a mysterious time machine to bring key members of the past into the future, to save humanity from destroying itself.

Pulled from Renaissance Italy, former peasant Benedetta brings a friendship with master artist Leonardo da Vinci . . . and an unprecedented ability to change destiny, aided by her new partner, the Viking Ivar. But it is not easy to reconcile the past and the present, and the time refugees have their own plans for their new world.

Weaving together time travel, quantum mechanics, Templars, and outlaws, acclaimed author Rebecca Ore delivers a powerful tale of intrigue and possibility, and the fight to be free.
