This series redefines exciting (but intelligent) reading.
Author: J.P. Beaubien
Series: Aeon Legion #1
There are lots of books with exciting adventures and powerful swords that can cut through anything. There are also lots of books that tackle complex issues surrounding how “heroes” and “villains” are often defined by nothing more than personal perception.
The problem is that very few books give you both.
Labyrinth is one of the rare pieces of literature that manage to brilliantly deliver the action, adventure, and mystery we love in Fantasy and Sci-Fi, while also delving into complex philosophical concepts that are all too often oversimplified in the genre.
Still not convinced? What if I told you that one of the characters is a man of honor fighting to help his nation escape a great depression caused by oppressive treaties forced upon them by other nations? …..now what if I told you this man lived in 1940….and was a member of the Nazi Party?
Back Blurb: To protect the Edge of Time from the disastrous alterations of time travelers, the Aeon Legion seeks the greatest soldiers and warriors from the most bloody, war-torn eras in history. Those they deem worthy gain a chance to compete in the toughest training program ever designed.
Terra Mason, a plain eighteen-year-old girl from the modern United States, has an impressive stubborn streak. Her persistence and bravery gains the notice and sponsorship of one of the Aeon Legion’s greatest heroines. Now Terra must turn that stubbornness into determination if she is to contend with history’s finest soldiers and somehow pass the Aeon Legion’s final test, the mysterious Labyrinth. She will not quit. Terra will prove that even someone as average as her can still be a heroine.
Hanns Speer is polite, good-natured, charming, a genius inventor of a time travel machine, and a dedicated member of the Nazi Party. Yet he cannot understand why people from the future regard him and his fellow Nazis as monsters. Now he must use his charisma and cunning to challenge the seemingly invincible Aeon Legion and its monopoly on time travel. He will not quit. Hanns will steal history itself if he has to, mistakenly believing it will prove him to be a hero.
