Book Review: This is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

This is How You Lose the Time War

This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two agents travel through time and start writing letters to each other. At first they are just taunts and challenges, but slowly, they get to know each other and fall in love. They work for opposite sides in the time war and if they get found out, it will be the end for both of them.

This novel is so compelling! The writing is evocative and clever. The characterisation is restrained, but that’s part of who they are – both are highly trained operatives, spies, if you like.

I grabbed the book because of the premise and loved every minute of it.
