Summary

Fifteen-year-old Tobias Doljan, a Walker trained to travel through time, is called to serve at the court of Daerjen. The sovereign, Mearlan IV, wants him to Walk back 14 years to prevent a devastating war that will destroy all of Islevale. Even though the journey will double Tobias' age, he agrees. 

But when he arrives, he discovers that Mearlan has already been assassinated, and his court, destroyed. The only survivor is the infant princess, Sofya. Still a boy inside his newly adult body, Tobias must find a way to protect the princess from assassins and build himself a future...in the past.

Intriguing story, Well written and well performed

The story is intriguing and engaging and it is so well written and performed.
There isn’t room to explain everything that is done well, but an example where even good authors sometimes fail: D. B. Jackson is able to deftly weave in background or context into the thoughts of the characters so that it feels natural and flows perfectly within the story.
The performance is also spectacular with the different characters having not only distinct accents and tone, but their voices change as they age or after particular experiences.
Highly recommended and I am eagerly waiting for the next volume.

Enjoyed

I really loved Jackson’s Thieftaker series and wanted this to be that and it is not, but that is not his fault. It is good and I enjoyed it, It might be that the voice I expect is from those stories but I enjoyed the narration very much in the story. The tale jumps back and forth with is easy to follow with time stamps to show for them and the setting is one of magic with a Neo Renaissance feeling. It did enjoy the story but I guess I am a horrid fan and really wanted more Ethan Kaile. I would still recommend the story to others. Jackson has a good style that I enjoy a lot.
