Summary

Contains books one and two of Time Wars Last Forever.

Ryan Time (book 1) 

There is a time for everything under the heavens. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to love and a time to hate. But when it's a time war you're looking at, it's Ryan Time. 

Jon Ryan is called back two billion years to save the Earth from an unprecedented threat. An alien clan is stealing time. It uses that time energy to power its quest to amass even more time. As the very real possibility of never having existed closes in on humanity, Jon must rally his ragtag forces to do the impossible, yet again. But how can you defeat an enemy who can cause you to never have lived? 

Lost Time (book 2)

The Earth - all of her history, all of her life - never existed. The Clan, the evil time thieves of the universe, sucked the time energy out of our home world. That which never was can never again be. Obviously. Well unless, of course, there's a Jon Ryan out there! 

Jon and Sapale must work with their new crew, two human academics spared humankind's foul fate, along with their captured alien time ship. But is their mission doomed to fail even before it starts? How can they resurrect something that never was? They don't even know how it can be done, or if it can be done.

Great

The performance is a little bit repetitive from previous books. Other than that the book is great. Probably the best so far.

loved it. good book, imaginative story, but SayPale (sp?) is an abusive spouse. I know it's a story, but imagine if John did the things she does like throwing coffee cups at him? She never misses an opportunity to insult him and call him names. Imagine the roles reversed and he would be a repulsive character. Her abuse adds nothing to the story and is very distracting. If someone treated me like this, they'd find themselves alone very quickly.

What a ride.

At the start of this book, I thought that I had made a mistake in buying, BUT it turned out to be a really fun listen. I loved the banter of the characters, the strangeness of the situations, the satirical story line. It entertained me and keep me engaged. Looking forward to the next.

Garbage

These books were garbage. completely nonsense and disconnected storyline. The author tried to make his characters too pithy, but all it did was make you feel like you completely missed the first half of the book.

Not my cup of tea.

I tried to like it. The premise was good. The story could have been good. However, the constant, endless snarky banter finally overwhelmed me. Enough already get on with the story.

One of favourite authors, favourite characters, and favourite narrators in a hilarious and high science fiction adventure through time.
Don’t miss it, you’ll love it in many ways.

Witty banter; no plot.

Great characters, and constant witty and clever dialogue. I really enjoyed that part of it, but very little plot actually happened. The heart of the plot, such as it is, is time manipulation and time travel, so when the book dealt with the actual plot, it was very flimsy. You don't listen to this book for the plot, though; you listen for the witty dialogue exchange.

While I enjoyed the almost 15 hours of witty and clever dialogue in this book, enough is enough. So I'm not getting the next book (publisher's pack books 3 & 4). I need a little more actual plot.

As always, Scott Aiello is outstanding as the narrator.
