Welcome to the fourth installment of the Scrapyard Ship series, Realms of Time. Captain Jason Reynolds and his team are up against a new, and unexpected foe-an adversarial force that has every intention of aligning with the powerful and dreaded Craing Empire.
The enemy strikes from Earth's high orbit, deploying five time-shifting spheres. The spheres are strategically positioned to link-up and set Earth's clock back 100 years into the past. But when that course of action is interrupted by The Lilly's crew, the results become far worse. Fluctuating time realms rapidly spread across the globe and threaten to rip the planet apart. Join Jason, Billy, Traveler, Ricket and Dira on their mission as they literally travel to the ends of time to bring Earth back to the twenty-first century.

Mark Wayne McGinnis creates consistently great contemporary sy-fi. L.J.Ganser brings it all to life brilliantly.

This is a leading question. You're assuming I love something in Realms of Time. You're right-I did. I loved just about everything in the book. There's stalwart warriors ready to sacrifice their lives; a gallant Captain who is a great leader but a jinx in the Romance department; enough fusty military to require paperwork to document their greed; unusual pets; and Dinosaurs!! Mean, flesh eating monstrosities that try to stop the crew from executing the only option left to them to save Mother Earth and their loved ones. This book has enough fast moving action to satisfy anyone, even a junkie like me. Did I mention that the characters are continuing to develop? This book is too good to set down!
Every last one of the characters were my favorites: some when they were blasted to atoms, others when they did the right thing. I loved McInnes' ability to ignore the box. It's too bad some of his critics couldn't do the same!.
L. J. Is doing a bang up job making us, the listeners, feel like we're at center stage thru out the book. Because I'm enjoying this book so much, I think I'm making Ganser very fluid and expressive. No, I honestly think he is.
Yes! This one and the others in the series. And yes, I did, night and day!
I love the cliff hanger endings! I never felt cheated or shorted because of the abrupt stops. I just moved to the next book and picked up exactly where the previous had ended. I am so glad I looked at the series page so I wouldn't have any lapses IF I liked the first books! I might have felt like some of Gasner's other critics with " halves" of books... And I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut hole that we will see another series. Gasner's just trying to figure out what to do with a pregnant Dira (Captain doesn't know) since ex wife, Nan, has delivered a son! That's not a spoiler that's a cliff hanger!
The first three books were entertaining. Nothing original or complex but entertaining. Yeah I thought the previous books were a little contrived but this book is just horrible. Each step of the way, this so called former Navy SEAL team commander makes dumber and dumber mistakes and his colleagues drop like flys. His ideas on time don't mesh with any consistent theories and the action is forced. Why???? I can only think he was contracted to write a fourth book and was trying to get out of the contract by writing a mess-ter-piece.
This recording needs a better reader. This story needs someone who can do multiple voices or it needs several readers. For Gods sake.... get a female to voice the female parts!
No. The reader stinks. I thought I was in a different story.
Record this story with a different reader
Yes the first two Junkyard books showed potential
I can picture him laughing to exhaustion as he wrote this book, but someone should have told him the humour doesn't work in context.
Disappointment, he came up with and idea and didn't drop it when it wasn't working.
