9780765377180: Time Salvager

Time Salvager: a fast-paced time travel adventure from Wesley Chu, the award-winning author of The Lives of Tao.

Convicted criminal James Griffin-Mars is no one's hero. In his time, Earth is a toxic, abandoned world and humans have fled into the outer solar system to survive, eking out a fragile, doomed existence among the other planets and their moons. Those responsible for delaying humanity's demise believe time travel holds the key, and they have identified James, troubled though he is, as one of a select and expendable few ideally suited for the most dangerous job in history.
 
James is a chronman, undertaking missions into Earth's past to recover resources and treasure without altering the timeline. The laws governing use of time travel are absolute; break any one of them and, one way or another, your life is over. Most chronmen never reach old age; the stress of each jump through time, compounded by the risk to themselves and to the future, means that many chronmen rapidly reach their breaking point, and James Griffin-Mars is nearing his.

On a final mission that is to secure his retirement, James meets Elise Kim, an intriguing scientist from a previous century, who is fated to die during the destruction of an oceanic rig. Against his training and his common sense, and in violation of the chronmen's highest law, James brings Elise back to the future with him, saving her life, but turning them both into fugitives. Remaining free means losing themselves in the wild and poisonous wastes of Earth, somehow finding allies, and perhaps discovering what hope may yet remain for humanity's home world.

About the Author:

WESLEY CHU is a finalist for the 2015 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. His debut novel, The Lives of Tao, earned him a Young Adult Library Services Association Alex Award and a Science Fiction Goodreads Choice Award Finalist slot.

Review:

Chu creates a fascinating world, strange and familiar, infused with humor, sorrow, courage, greed, and sacrifice. This page-turner is a riveting, gratifying read. - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

An utterly captivating time-travel adventure. To put it simply, Chu’s worldbuilding is extraordinary. - RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, a Top Pick!)

Smart, fast, and fun. - Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author of the Lightbringer series

Time twisting action-adventure as only Wesley Chu could imagine it. I enjoyed it a lot. Read this book! - Ann Leckie, author of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Ancillary Justice

A gripping, taut space opera about keeping hope in hopeless circumstances. Immensely enjoyable. - Robert Jackson Bennett, author of City of Stairs

Chu has taken a simple, brilliant premise and built upon it an epic universe full of thrills and wonder. - Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author of The Darwin Elevator

More than a compelling, innovative take on the perks and pitfalls of time travel - Time Salvager is a sharp study of how human nature might prove mankind's salvation, or eventually doom us all. This is world-building that will make you fear for the future. In a good way. - Cherie Priest, author of Maplecroft

A powerful and compelling search of the past for redemption in the present, by turns thrilling and sweet and gut-wrenching. - Kevin Hearne, author of the Iron Druid Chronicles

A clever, cautionary sf tale with cool gadgets, characterization that surprised me in the best possible way, and multiple cunning twists. - Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series

With time travel, force-field kung fu, and a huge helping of wit, Wesley Chu transmogrifies a bleak long-whimper apocalypse into vicious, high-octane fun. - Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence
