by Félix J. Palma
570 pgs (Map of Time trilogy #3)
The Map of Time, it was The Time Machine, in The Map of the Sky, it was The War of the Worlds, and in this concluding book, it's The Invisible Man. Each time, events take place that mirror Wells's stories and threaten to destroy the world.
This time around Wells is not alone as he tries to save everything. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Lewis Carroll are there to assist him, and it's not just this earth that is threatened, it's the whole multiverse that is brought to the brink of annihilation.
Trying to explain this book is not an easy task--so I'm not going to even attempt it. Instead, I'll just say that it was a very satisfying conclusion to a fantastic series.
Now that all three books are finished, and the story can be looked at as a whole, Palma's accomplishment is pretty remarkable. These books are incredibly imaginative, full of exciting action, and they offer everything you'd want in books honoring one of the founding fathers of their genre. The books can be read independently from one another, but there is a lot that will be missed out on, if they're not read as a complete story.
