Publisher's Summary

What if a time traveler lived in a world where disrupting the timeline could destroy everything in the universe? Everything but himself?
Pilot X is Ambassador of the Alendans, a race with the ability to move through space and time as guardians of the timeline. Locked in ongoing conflict with the Sensaurians, an organic hive mind that can send messages in thought throughout its own history, and the Progons, a machine race who can communicate backwards in time, Pilot X finally manages to create peace among the three races. But when Pilot X discovers that a secret dimensional war fought in hidden parts of spacetime threatens the fabric of the universe itself, he faces unseen enemies and a deeper conspiracy, bringing him to the ultimate choice: erase the existence of all three races, including his own people, or to let the universe be destroyed.

Great Story - wish there was more

Great character and universe building without it seeming like it is being forced into your ears. You will likely listen to this several times to get all the nuisance and details packed into this story about a time traveling pilot who is constantly running into people who know more about his future than he does. Sad to say, but I was enjoying the story so much that I was sorry when it was over. It felt complete, but I wasn't ready for it to end.

Dr Who Esk jaunt through time and space

While it took a while to get into the style Tom Merritt used in this story, particularly with the repetition of the main characters name, once I had drawn a mental parallel between this character, and Dr Who, another time travelling jack of all trades, I was able to focus on the development of Pilot X. While I understand the importance of the naming structure, it would have been easier to digest if sometimes the name was shortened.

The pacing of the story built up to a nice crescendo as it twisted and turned though time and space, and I think I might need to read it again to really grasp all the detail, but for a first effort, this story shows a lot of promise.

In another comparison to Dr Who, one of my favourite characters in the story was Pilot X's ship, but you'll just have to read it to find out why.
