The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma


Time travel in a Victorian motif describes this book populated with well known icons of the genre.  

I found myself seeking less verbosity and yet I still had to finish the book.   The characterization of such well known legends such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and H.G. Wells made the book nearly irresistible.   Some reviews have characterized the story as Steam Punk, I didn’t get that flavor.   It seemed more historic than Steam Punk. 

The book plodded at times.   The characters appear to be crafted with a great deal of attention but still were not real memorable.   I really wanted to like the book and found myself very lukewarm in my response.
