there might be some things that give you pause. For instance, Darth Pony pointed out that the main characters's name = Time Distort when you read it backwards, which may be a little, I don't know, twee . . . or something. Good catch, btw. I missed it.
but I loved the story.
it does what a good TT should do. Sets out the possibilities, the circularities, the what ifs and the consequences, and leaves you imagining what's next.
when I looked into what else the author has written, I found a whole series. YaY! and guess what? The first one's free.
