"Charles L. Harness's new novel is interesting and original, but incoherant. This highly unusual treatment of time travel is often poetic, but just as often confusing."
"The plot is complex, and it has major weaknesses. Two important events near the end smack of dues ex machina."
"Harness does so many things right, and so many things wrong, that it's hard to know what to think about this book."

Framed for the disaster, Konteau is hunted by authorities, defying all the powers of technology and politics to escape back through the misty ages on a complex mission of death, justice, love -- and incredible destiny...
