Kirkus Reviews calls it: "A keen and delightful multi-genre tale about a hero grappling with two worlds."
Feathered Quill Book Awards calls it: "...a delicious and thought-provoking book full of introspective questions and the choices one makes in the moment."
Burt Higgins’ retirement is not going well. With too much time on his hands, he broods on the state of the world, obsessively following the worst of cable news and the Internet. Increasingly angry at the state of affairs, he nurtures a fantasy that a dark lord from another realm has foisted these problems on humankind. If only he could transport to that world, he'd confront the demon and use the magic found there to defeat the beast and end despair forever.
On a particularly bad news day, Burt learns that, indeed, one must be careful what one asks for.
Astrid Iustulin, Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews (5 STARS), says: “I consider The Time That’s Given one of the most inspiring fantasy novels I have ever read.”
