Rich And Colorful
Careful rereading of relevant passages discloses the intricacy and subtlety of the temporal journeys, time war and causal paradoxes. The Warden and Ranger realms and their single successor are briefly but fully realized as are the philosophical conflict between Wardens and Rangers and its place in the history of religion. The main past period in the narrative is the early second millennium BC but there are also vivid glimpses of the seventh and sixteenth centuries.
Superficially a mere action-adventure novel with heroes and villains fighting through history, The Corridors Of Time turns out to be one of it's author's richest and most colorful science fiction narratives.
