Do you like time travel? Author Kage Baker has written a series of fascinating books about a 24th-century global organization known as The Company (Dr. Zeus) which has discovered the ultimate profitability of time travel.
In Book 1, “In the Garden of Iden”, the setting is Elizabethan England, where we first meet (the soon-to-be recruited by the Company) Mendoza, a refugee of the Spanish Inquisition. Cybernetics, religious persecution of the time, danger, love, comedy – Kage Baker brings to life the time period(s) in an entertaining page turner.
I loved the juxtaposition of Elizabethan language and modern speak. The author has set up such an interesting world, rife with possible conflict. Check out the whole series here!
