Overview

The third installment in the exciting First Admiral Series, Time Commander follows the continuing adventures of Billy Caudwell; the teenage First Admiral of the Universal Alliance Fleet as he strives to prevent a long, protracted and bloody war with the Ganthorans.
Having defeated a Ganthoran Frontier Fleet General in battle, Billy Caudwell must undertake the dangerous 'Time Warrior Ritual'. In the ritual, Billy has to re-fight (and win) a major battle, that in the history of his species was lost - and in which the losing Commander was killed. To prevent years, possibly decades, of costly warfare, Billy must complete the ritual and claim the Crystal Throne of Ganthus. If Billy completes the challenge, he will become the Emperor of the Ganthorans. If he fails, he will die on a historical battlefield from Earth's past.
Sinister powerful and xenophobic forces among the Ganthoran aristocracy and military are ranged against Billy, determined to prevent an alien claiming the Crystal Throne.
Can Billy survive the challenge and avert a brutal and costly war?

    After happily buying and reading books 1 and 2, bought book 3 and would have bought book 4, however ran into a problem. Book three ends on the worst form of cliff hanger, IN THE MIDDLE OF A BATTLE! To compound the flaw, book 4 is not yet available!!! Leaving this author now, never to return. Too bad, great story, great ideas.

    Cunning and Real

    Though it's Science Fiction, it's reads like real life with bad things happening to characters you like. Throw in the wonders of trions and some well thought out battles and you have a great reading experience.
