Staff Reviews

There is a bleeding, red heart buried deep in this bookseller's layers of steely cynicism. You can't get there with conventional romance; nothing gooey or pink or covered in abs-tacular models. No cheesy poetry. No roses. Only something so well-crafted, so painfully beautiful; an arrow fit for Eros himself, could have pierced its way to that heart and made it bleed as profoundly and wonderfully after reading this book. It is a marvel. It is an enchantment. Go, damn you, and read this war epic of enemy-lovers in a dangerous time. — Katelynne Shimkus

Time travel for the world-builder.
Romance for the mushy-averse.
Spies and spaceships, letters left across battlefields, double-helixes and the flap of a butterfly’s wings.
A masterpiece. — Andrew Bugenis


Two time-traveling agents from warring futures, working their way through the past, begin to exchange letters--and fall in love in this thrilling and romantic book from award-winning authors Amal-El Mohtar and Max Gladstone.Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading. Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future. Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them. There's still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win that war. That's how war works. Right? Cowritten by two beloved and award-winning sci-fi writers, This Is How You Lose the Time War is an epic love story spanning time and space.
