Return to the increasingly dark future ruled by corporations with a firm grasp on the chronostream. James Griffin-Mars, former chronman, finds himself on a toxic Earth on the run from the relentless Kuo. James and the woman he rescued from the past, Elise, have found allies in the seemingly savage humanity eking out an existence among the ruined and poisoned buildings of Earth. Thundering action scenes pile up as James and his allies evade the corporations and attempt to cure the Earth Plague.
Time Siege is the second book in the Time Salvager series. Chu has knocked it out of the park once again. The addition of the venerated Mother of Time, Grace Priestly, is a fun one. Grace invented time travel but is crass and beholden to no one despite her advanced age. Read for the adventure, the breakneck twists and turns, but stay for the unusual characters and whip-smart dialogue. Fans of sci-fi, adventure, romance, and just a good story should pick up Time Siege as soon as possible.
