Publisher's Summary

The Synchronicity War is over, and the insectoid beachheads in our spiral arm have been destroyed, but the aftermath of the war holds some nasty surprises for humanity and its loyal AI allies. Somebody is messing with the human time line. Is it the friendlies, the sogas, the insectoids, or a new race?
This stand-alone novel set in the Synchronicity War universe has new human and AI characters. Find out what happened to Valkyrie, Casanova, Iceman, Gunslinger, and the other Rim AIs. The Retro War spans time and space in a galactic chess game with humans and their AIs as the pawns.

My Brain Hurts

Interesting premise and good characters, but the execution is lacking. Using time travel as a military technology both saves and dooms the human race in at least 5 different time lines. I am sure some ppl will like this, but I like it when the hero wins. Victor Shilo dies over and over... everything he does makes things worse. His last death actually seems to save the day, but I am guessing it will prove to be bad for humans when the next book comes out. it is just too depressing to read about the hero failing and dying over and over. I really liked the characters and the universe, but the time travel thing baked my brain and the depressing story line just ruinef it for me. Luke Daniels us great though.

Another great story

I really enjoyed this book and the Synchronicity War series. Luke Daniels does another awesome job of bringing the characters to life.

Gave me a headache!

Would you try another book written by Dietmar Wehr or narrated by Luke Daniels?

Yes to both. Author and narrator. Luke Daniels is one of my favourite narrators but even he struggles in this book, particularly with the AIs portrayals. I've read the Synchronicity War books by Wehr and would recommend them.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

If the mechanics of time travel is your thing, this might be for you but as I said - HEADACHE! The author went into too much detail and the result was confusing and replaced the 'action' of the other books.

Do you think The Retro War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I won't be reading any follow-up.

sat up all night couldn't put it down

as usual Luke Daniels is brilliant and having been entranced with synchronicity war, I am not disappointed with the Retro War. I cannot think of any part of this book I could single out. the whole thing is great
