Carolyn R. Scheidies, Author's Choice Book Review
Those who enjoy a mix of creative history, fantasy, science fiction and complex plots from a God-entered worldview should find this series an intriguing challenge. It does take the tangle threads and weaves them into a tapestry of hard to forget characters. It also makes you think, Maybe...?

Thanks for this series, I've been praying that God would give me some good Christian fiction to read (i.e. better than the Left Behind series, etc.). These books are the most interesting fiction I've read since Tolkien's books!

.the convolutions of politics and character are enough to satisfy any fan of epics. It's worth its price, and then some.

Richard Sutcliffe's Worlds of the Timestream series stands out vividly in the world of contemporary fiction. He uses the idea of an alternate world, in this case an world where the Irish Celtic influence rules, to critique our modern society and to present an alternative worldview. His stories have excellent character development and tell and retell the same events from the different perspectives of those characters (something he calls the "Celtic Knot method"), and at the same time present mystery on mystery for you to figure out (you almost think you've solved them...and then you're not so sure).

When I read the first volume I was not aware that Rick Sutcliffe was a practicing Christian. When I came across some Christian concepts presented in the text I was surprised, and I decided that what the author was writing was a very accurate portrayal of a committed Christian. That was unusual in contemporary fiction, and I was pleased to read something in which a Christian was portrayed positively. But even if you're not a Christian, I think you'll have a great read in them!

I especially appreciated how the author deals with so many of the tough issues of the Christian faith (such as the problem of evil, marriage, sexual purity, revenge and violence) in the context of a really good story. Never forced, never sappy, never shallow, I have enjoyed reading these books several times already. I've bought multiple copies (of the e-book versions even) to give out to friends, and I recommend that you read them yourself.
