Teaser Tuesday: The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma


TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~





The Map of Time: A Novel
"The white cord," explained the traveler, pointing at the master rope, "represents the original univers, the only one that existed before the travelers began meddling with the past. The universe it is my task to protect."


~ page 534 “The Map of Time" by Felix J. Palma

About The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma:

Set in Victorian London with characters real and imagined, The Map of Time boasts a triple-play of intertwined plots in which a skeptical H.G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and thereby save the lives of an aristocrat in love with a murdered prostitute from the past; of a woman bent on fleeing the strictures of Victorian society; and of his very own wife, who may have become a pawn in a 4th-dimensional plot to murder the authors of Dracula, The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, in order to alter their identities and steal their fictional creations.

But, what happens if we change history? FÉlix J. Palma raises such questions in The Map of Time. Mingling fictional characters with real ones, Palma weaves a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting, a story full of love and adventure that also pays homage to the roots of science fiction while transporting its readers to a fascinating Victorian London for their own taste of time travel.

:) I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi
