John Chantry, a retired member of the Elite Special Forces in the Space Rangers, spent his final years training recruits in the use of special weapons for zero- and low-gravity environments. After two decades of service and seeking a quieter life, John accepted a position as a bodyguard for Professor Whitmore Emerson, an esteemed academic. The generous pay, four times what he earned in the force, made the offer enticing. As John arrived at Emerson Barn, a typical setting with horse stalls and the scent of hay, he soon discovered surprises that added a twist to his seemingly ordinary new job. Explore the intriguing events in "Time Before Time" by Dan DuBose and Beau DuBose to learn if this career change fulfills John's quest for a less exciting life.
"Time Before Time" is a captivating read that delves into alternate creations and entities coexisting with Earth. Beyond our planet, numerous constellations exist simultaneously, showcasing that earthly civilization is in its infancy compared to the vastness of the universe. The book explores the interconnectedness of planets, detailing their orbits and illustrating how disruptions on one can significantly impact others. Emphasizing teamwork, it likens a team to a unified body working cohesively toward shared goals. Expertise in one's chosen field is praised, with nearly every character in the enthralling narrative being a master in their trade. The book intricately illustrates the repercussions of every action, exemplified by Colonel Turlan's decision not to alter the past to save Lt. Nikle, recognizing the potential cost in lives.
The book's immersive quality stems from the authors' vivid and lifelike depictions of each landscape and era, seamlessly drawing readers into the storyline. I applaud their meticulous scene-building, creating an intricate narrative that makes it feel as though I inhabit the same timeline as the characters. The execution of plot developments and character introductions is masterful, and the evolution of characters' knowledge and expertise sets this apart from my previous reading experiences. This constant development keeps readers engaged and eagerly anticipating what unfolds. The action sequences and the portrayal of cutting-edge technologies across various planets add to the book's compelling nature. The vivid imagery is so compelling that, at times, it challenges the perception of the story as mere fiction.
I have no reservations about this book; from start to finish, it maintains a clear direction and an unambiguous narrative.
The book stands out with its polished editing, earning a solid five out of five stars from me because it offers readers an immersive and imaginative experience. I wholeheartedly recommend it to sci-fi enthusiasts and those who enjoy books with a touch of military setting. It's truly worth the read.
