Series: Chronicles of Solace, the
Time is up.
In a far-flung universe -- where history is a timeshaft away -- a manhunt begins to determine the future of a world ...
Oskar DeSilvo was the founder of the planet Solace. As the director of its terraforming project, he literally made the world -- but he's been dead for over a hundred years. Or so Anton Koffield thought. Now, as Solace slides into ecological collapse, Koffield discovers that DeSilvo may still somehow be alive -- and that the secrets he holds could save not only Solace but all of humanity.
But Koffield has his own reasons to find DeSilvo. Once a decorated officer of the Chronologic Patrol, he now battles against all they stand for to find the man who nearly destroyed him. Driven by a ruthless sense of justice and honor, Koffield takes his crew back through a timeshaft wormhole to a time and a place none of them have ever seen: Earth of the next century. There the search begins. A quest not only to explore the past -- but to free the future from the clutches of a genocidal madman ...
