2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Insurrection by Arshad Ahsanuddin (232-07-31-2016)

1) Wow! I'm a geek for stories about interstellar travel and time travel. This novel includes both in a rousing story that kept me glued to the pages. I'll definitely have to go back and check out the earlier books in this series.

2) Being the third instalment in a series I have not read, I found parts of this time travel story quite complex and had to re-read sections to understand what was happening. That being said, I love an intelligently written, well developed plot with lots of surprises that makes me think, along with a strong cast of characters, and this book fit the bill perfectly. I have already ordered books 1 and 2 to read once my reading for the Awards is over.

One man will destroy the past to save the present.
The price is too high.
But it may already be too late to stop him.

Life settles into a routine for the inhabitants of Chiron Colony, humanity's first interstellar settlement, after the threat of the time traveler Gifford has apparently been eliminated. But the Hourglass and its leader, Admiral O'Dare, are not content to rest on their laurels, convinced that time travel remains a palpable threat to human civilization. When Annette Sutton uncover a possible secret plot to eliminate the principal members of the Interscission Project decades in the past, when they had only just met, the colonists' idyllic peace is shattered.

Can Martin and his people head off disaster as the Admiral moves to destroy the potential for time travel, once and for all? Or is there a deeper agenda in play? As loyalty and duty become pawns in the race to prevent the erasure of all that they have accomplished, Martin will have to decide once and for all how far he will go to save everything and everyone he loves.
