Publisher's Summary

The impossible has spawned the unthinkable. In 2021, a quantum military experiment goes horrifically wrong. A multinational taskforce of ultra-modern warships is suddenly transported back in time to 1942...right into the path of the U.S. naval battle group bound for Midway Atoll.

History is rewritten in an instant as the future smashes into the past, and high-tech hardware goes head to head with World War Two technology. In the chaos that ensues, thousands are killed, but the maelstrom has only just begun. The veterans of Pearl Harbor have never seen a helicopter, or a cruise missile - let alone nanotechnology, ceramic bullets, and F22 Raptor stealth jetfighters.

Allied and Axis forces are then caught in a desperate struggle to gain the upper hand - each hoping to tip the balance with a fist full of 21st-century firepower. What happens next is anybody's guess - and everybody's nightmare.

Listen to the entire Axis of Time trilogy.

    "Quite good"

    The Shatner-esque delivery of the narrator was distracting at first, but once I got used to it, it was alright. The story was quite good, and I look forward to hearing the next book.

    "Interesting concept, poor final product"

    I wanted to like this book but I can't get past the representation that everyone from 1942 is a vicious, hateful racist and sexist. I'm sure there were plenty who were, but it gets in the way of the interesting concept of "what if?". Every single character from 1942 is predictably militantly and violently bigoted.

    "What a ride - can't wait for book 2"

    Loved listening to this fantastic alternative Sci Fi story. Only thing bothering me were the Allah akbar howling bastards . Both is the idea of jihad totally untorable in every way but the narrator did furthermore not get the pronunciation well. Everything else very good, exciting and entertaining. Thanks

    "Paying attention in the beginning"

    I almost gave up on this book at the beginning because it was hard to follow during the first engagement after the transition to the past. I started over and focused and once past that it was a great book.

    "Save Yourself"

    I finished this book, just so I could write a review, my first. This book sucks. It takes a great idea, and much like Chunk from the Goonies, fumbles it and watches it shatter on the floor. That characters, of which there are legion, are completely unforgettable. None of them stand out in any way from the rest. It's like getting a box of crayons and seeing they're all beige. The plot ping pongs around, only to setup shop in the most desolate of entertainment ghettos. Please, save yourself, and skip this lame book.

    "Couldn't get into it"

    This sorry simply did not engage me the way I thought it would. The technical details did not lend themselves to the sort of clarity of mental picture to which I am accustomed as a shipbuilding engineer. I'll try it again another time.
