The creature slept standing up, its head lowered, the upper half of its complex, jointed spine bowed forward. The atmosphere inside the lab was one of tense, barely restrained excitement. It was the first time anyone had ever seen a real live centaur.

It was the first time anyone had ever seen a real live centaur…. When a mythical creature is captured by Observers from the 27th Century in the year 219 B.C., they realize that something has gone drastically wrong. The actions of the Time Wars had brought about a congruence of two universes, with a confluence effect that had both timelines rippling and intersecting at various points throughout history. And where these confluence points occurred, it was possible to cross over from one universe into another. And as if that were not bad enough, the appearance of a creature straight out of Greek mythology seemed to prove that physical laws were different in the other universe, which meant that more intelligence was needed, because the other universe had declared a temporal war to safeguard their own timestream. For the adjustment teams of Temporal Intelligence, this meant a whole new type of mission. Their job had always been to prevent historical disruptions. Now, it would be their mission to create them – in the opposing timeline. The Time Wars had suddenly been escalated into a new dimension. Literally.

I'm working my way through the Time Wars series - and enjoying every book!

I purchased this book to complete a series for my husband for Christmas. The book was as described and was shipped in a fair amount of time.

When the adjustment team is faced with the surprising question, was Jason and the Argonauts based on some historical events and figures, or was it purely mythical? They end up venturing through a confluence point, into the parallel timeline, to run an operation.

One of my favorite philosophical questions from this book can be paraphrased as "how do you persevere the timeline in a timestream where you do not know the history, or what events were supposed to take place?"

IN the 27th century time travel is real and wars were fought in the past to ensure that the 27th century was the battle ground. However that has changed and now a war only thought of as a fantasy is forth coming. As an alternate timeline has declared war on Earth or as Earth as we know of it from the 27th century the Time Corps has been enlarged and reorganized into a fighting force to combat and stop the alternate timeline.
In Ancient Greece a centaur is found and brought back to the 27th century for study and to determine if it is real. With all the advanced technology of the 27th century at their disposal they discover that the centaur is real and from all accounts it came from a doorway into the alternate time line world. They also make the discovery that this centaur is none other then the very same that taught some of the greatest heroes of myth like Hercules, Jason and even Theseus. But that means that in the alternate time line that they are real and in their own are nothing more then legend. After learning all they could the send Finn Delaney and Andre Cross along with their new commanding office LTC Stiener. Replacing Preist and the same man who was secretly spying on Drakov. Together they discover that Jason is real and that he searches for the Golden Fleece to reclaim his father's kingdom.
What the three of them are trying to figure out is why is the alternate timeline allowing this to happen? Is this a part of their history and have to let it play out? Or is it something else? Have they stumbled upon some elaborate plan to see what it would take to destroy their timeline? The only way to figure that out is to go along with Jason and the rest of the Argonauts and the quest for the Golden Fleece. What they intend to find at the end could cost them their own history or worse? Who knows and only the Time Commandos can figure it out.

I've always been keen on historical novels and sci-fi. You cannot imagine how pleased I was to find a series that combines both. Mr. Hawkes research is excellent,and his concept of the nature of time travel,paradoxes etc is second to none. I haven't yet got the entire series but each time I read one of his Timewars novels I want more.
