This is the tale of a thief who can time travel that ends up becoming a hero in an adventure that readers will not forget anytime soon! There is a lot going on in this story, from a major that has lost all illusion to a highway woman and a war that threatens to be conducted across all of time.

The year is 1788 and readers get to meet the main character of Alice Payne for the first time. Alice has a reputation that she has spent a while earning as the Holy Ghost. This alias is a known highway robber that gets the job done along with the help of Laverna, her automaton. Those who travel the highway or do so while having a heavy purse fear her arrival and the ensuing absence of their riches as they are lifted off of them.

Meanwhile, in the year 1889, things are happening. In an attempt to save history itself, Mayor Prudence Zuniga is doing what she can. If she can just change history, maybe she can save the timeline. But this is a tricky thing and nearly seventy tries at it later she has found that it appears to be futile. It’s just not happening.

2016 was a problematic year, but 2020 finds more action to be had. The guides and farmers are battling across time. The prize that they are fighting for just happens to be the world. The only thing that will be able to change the way that the war goes would be something or someone that is new coming in and changing the game.

What will happen with the entrance of Alice Payne? Read this debut book in the series to find out!

Alice Payne Rides is the second installment of the Alice Payne series and the sequel to the first book. The action starts back up again in full force with lots going on in this exciting continuation of the story.

Alice has gone back to 1203 and in the process has kidnapped Arthur of Brittany. Little does she know that this action actually helps to create the mystery that actually made them feel the need to go back there originally.

Also, Alice discovers along with her team that they’ve also hitched a traveler back with them. They’ve arrived safely in 1780 only to find that the smallpox virus took a ride and came back along with them.

Now they are busy looking for a vaccine in the future, especially Prudence. But while she’s there, she discovers that the different sides that are in a time war in the future want to use this for their own benefit. The team is working hard, trying to prevent a pandemic from spreading. Can they help mend time and make history go the way that it was originally intended to?

Or is it all just futile? The time war rages ever on. Can Alice Payne and others make sure that history is set right? Read this book to discover what happens for yourself!
