Ciervo Blanco Book Club organizes a book discussion in English about the novel ‘This is how you lose the time war‘ by Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone
This is a free book discussion in English. The only requirement is to have read the book!
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 hell-bent 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.
