Timepiece — Read the Exciting Prologue
It's June 18, 1815, Waterloo, Belgium, and if Wellington's beleaguered British army doesn't get help soon, all will be lost. The indomitable Duke of Wellington sends for reinforcements...
And the aid that comes is not General Blücher's Prussian forces. Rather, the rescuers of the Empire are a nightmare regiment dreamed up by a mad Genovese scientist.
You only THINK you know
what happened at Waterloo.
The real story involved more monsters.
And a lot more time travel.
“Waterloo and time travel are made for each other and Heather Albano has done a wonderful job of giving us a delightful cast of characters, tasked with stitching together the proper nineteenth century while fending off several monstrous alternatives. Propulsive adventure with historical insight.” – Kim Stanley Robinson, Red Mars and 2312
