I enjoyed this read. Time travel is always a fun idea to play with. The possible future that Anton builds is easy to fall into and believe.
I did not want this tale to come to a close. One of the best short stories I have read lately.
An excellent book with some solid characters. Great story!
We are all Time Travellers in a sense. Every day we alter our timelines with the choices we make. That's a powerful responsibility I think that's why I'm attracted to the premise.
