Overview

History has always been written by the victor, but in the shadows, history has been manipulated by a an ancient Guild of Time Assassins. Until now. Rick Brewer, assassin's apprentice, is sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. He escapes to a distant past and, stranded in time, seeks revenge against the Guild by creating instability in the time-line by choosing powerful targets - The Presidents of the United States of America.
Reginald Mayweather is a ruthless business tycoon and not one to accept no as an answer, but when a business prospect fails, he demands the help of the Assassin's Guild to eradicate the competition by killing his competitor's ancestors. If successful, it could prove disastrous to the time-line on a global scale. Jason Lassiter joined the Assassin's Guild because he wanted to experience history first hand. Little does he know that his future, and the future of the Guild, rests in his hands.

Time Assassins by Kyle Hannah was such an interesting read! The amount of research he had to do to get the historical events mentioned in the book (like the JFK assassination, the MLK, Jr assassination, the attempted and successful assassination of Lincoln, to name a few) must have been painstaking. I love history and this book was right up my ally! It isn’t a dry recounting of events past but instead a believable, fictional tale of a group in the future called the Guild. The Guild sends teams to the past to ensure certain events occur that will create an optimal future. Hannah includes espionage, betrayal, and greed within the pages of Time Assassins. I was very impressed with the detail in which he portrayed the education of Apprentices during their training to become Assassins. Additionally, one would think Assassins to be cold and calculating, maybe even isolationists. Not so in this book. I was able to feel the emotions from Apprentice 101 and was relieved there was emotional depth in many of the characters. If you like your history with a mixed with a little fiction, Kyle Hannah’s Time Assassins is definitely the book for you.

Imagine a place where history and all its alternates are carefully classified, quantified, measured and stored as the present day heads forward to its planned reward. Imagine the soldiers for time who work to keep history pure. Imagine the historian, eager to pay any price to experience the past. Then add greed, politics, duplicity, and the death sentence. The result is Time Assassins by R Kyle Hannah – kind of a modern-day novel of time-traveling Batmans. Time Assassins is based on a seriously cool premise, nicely thought through, taking readers from recent history to the gallows of French revolution (but not the iconic guillotine, which surprised me). Its characters travel through Europe and America, but this is the time of America’s rising, and the story is very centered on the States. Presidents are murdered, grassy knolls are referenced, and soon there’s just that tiny twist that could change everything. I enjoyed how the author dealt with alternate histories and their ramifications. Sometimes the characters’ oversimplified emotions annoyed me, but that doesn’t alter the fact that Time Assassins is a cool read based on a fascinating, well-imagined premise, and I’d love to read what happens next. Disclosure: I won a copy on a blog and I offer my honest review.
