No matter where the watch hands turn, she’d rather remain home. But with every time-traveling trekker’s life at stake, can she stop a deadly clock?
Wilda Firestone survives off black coffee and white-hot sarcasm. And despite the colorful slew of characters filing through her time tourism costume shop, the retired First Nations Temporal Agent would prefer a quiet, more linear existence. So she’s less than impressed when a dying explorer crashes into her store, unleashing a plague that sends countless travelers to an early doom…
Knowing her own lengthy history of chronological excursions grants her some immunity, Wilda vows to jump back in the saddle and seek out answers. But as she retraces the dead man’s steps from 14th century Mali and into 12th century Scotland and beyond, she’s dumbfounded by whatever force reduced an entire village to blood.
Can Wilda stamp out the root of the sickness before she too succumbs?
Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd. is the intriguing first book in the Toronto Time Agents science fiction series. If you like feisty heroines, beautiful landscapes, and astounding adventures, then you’ll love Christy Nicholas’s explosive tale.
Review from the Judge, 8th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards:
“What a fun and intriguing story. Once I started Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd., I couldn’t put it down! I absolutely love Wilda and watching her navigate society in a variety of times and places was wonderful. When Wilda looked into Baheera’s eyes and described it as “Bryonie’s eyes gazed into mine,” I smiled widely (93). The way the story’s twists came together was rewarding and I don’t know that I’ve enjoyed watching a “Lady Prissy-Pants” get her comeuppance as much as I did in this novel. The history and cultures presented in the tale were incredible and it was both clever and engaging for the reader to read about these details. The diversity of the characters and history also added to the richness of the story and was wonderfully representative of the world at large. The way that everything from the beginning tied together in the end was well crafted and I will absolutely be looking forward to any future sequels. The characters were well developed and the plot was well researched and crafted. The tone of the story was sarcastic but clever and made me laugh quite a bit…”
