  15. 15. Second Initiative Press Two Minute Book Previews Review Quote “Good, solid time travel adventure starting with an unmotivated young man who is thrust thousands of years back in time and has to immediately begin fighting for his survival. The no-nonsense, straight forward writing style complements the no-nonsense "fight or die" experiences he faces, often with white knuckle suspense and action. Very entertaining.” Available in paperback and on Kindle-FREE on KDP.
