The Masters of Time sci-fi/fantasy time travel anthology is presented to you by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie, Alesha Escobar and Devorah Fox, Hugo Award nominee Timothy C. Ward, B.R.A.G Medallion honoree H.M. Jones, and Alice Marks.
A collection of six science fiction and fantasy stories focusing around the theme of time travel. Through each story, it was really interesting to see the different emotions that went into each characters ability or decision to time travel, from love to grief, hope to adventure, every traveler had unique reasons for their journeys in time. Another aspect that I enjoyed through each story were the different methods of time travel that each story used. As with any anthology there were stories that I liked more than others. My absolute favorite was End of the Road where a rambunctious 5-year old girl named Maddie travels through a painting at her grandmother's house. Maddie gets a taste of life on a Southern plantation once she walks through the painting and finds that she likes her life much better. I loved the painting as a medium for travel, the point of view from a child and Maddie's go-with-the-flow reaction to everything that was happening to her. The other story in the collection that drew me in was The Light Storm of 2015. College friends Gina and Ben take the chance to change one event in their past through a once in a lifetime light storm. For a short story, I felt like I got to know Gina and Ben really well, I loved the light storm as a method of travel, and I'm a sucker for a happy ending. Overall, a great collection of time travel stories with a little something for everyone.
