In the Garden of Iden (1997), The Company series #1, by Kage Baker
Reading this book I realize how much I missed time travel stories. This is my first Kage Baker's reading. It is also the first of The Company series.
In the Garden of Iden deals with an entertaining visit to Spain and England in the sixteenth century. The plot, in one sentence: Mendoza is a young agent for The Company -a time travel corporation from the twenty-fourth century-, and she should be aware of the risks of getting involved with the mortals, the people of the sixteenth century.
The reading is interesting, the description of this tumultuous era and the characters (with some historical ones) are well-rounded and the end improves the whole story. Kage Baker (1952-2010) left us a legacy of books and short stories set in The Company universe that I want to visit in the future.
Ghosts of Tomorrow (2017), by Michael R. Fletcher
Of course this is only my opinion as a science fiction reader: in the year 2000 it was The Golden Age by John C. Wright; in the year 2010, The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi; and now in 2017, it is Ghosts of tomorrow. In other words, this novel has been a nice surprise.
