Biding Time – The Chestnut Covin

Temporal Protection Corps Series Book One

By E. W. Barnes

A hidden message. A secret code. A race into the past.

And a time machine in her living room.

After her grandparents die on the same day, Sharon Gorse discovers her grandmother was a time traveler—and then her world falls apart.

Stalked by a mysterious man, Sharon is plunged into a parallel timeline where everything she loves is lost, and her grandmother’s future world is in jeopardy.

Reluctantly partnered with a secretive agent from the future, Sharon must run through time to fix the past; save the present; and stop her own murder by the shadowy conspiracy, the Chestnut Covin.

But will she get back to the right timeline before the future closes forever and she ceases to exist?


5 out of 5 starsFast-moving, well-written book!

“This book had my head spinning as much as Inception did! If you enjoy time travel stories, this one is a must read.”

Borrowed Time – The Force Majeure

Temporal Protection Corps Series Book Two

By E. W. Barnes

They left on a routine time-travel training shift … and returned to a dystopian nightmare. 

In a moment the Temporal Protection Corps changed. Martial law. Curfews. Security officers everywhere. And brutal detention for those who step out of line.

Agent-in-training Sharon Gorse and her friends are alone in this alien world, the only ones who know the timeline has been altered. 

Their one chance to put things right is to commit a crime – to go back in time and change the past, violating temporal ethics and breaking world law.

Every shift into history increases their risk of capture, and they don’t know who to trust – even each other. Failure means more than living in a terrifying timeline; it means termination from the TPC and permanent erasure of their memories.

Can they succeed in restoring the future before Temporal Protection Corps agents track them down in the past? Or will betrayal from within destroy them first? 


5 out of 5 starsAnother great romp through time

“I think this one might possibly be even better than the first … I thoroughly enjoyed the shifts in intriguing places and times, and the mystery slowly revealed.”

Out of Time – The Roman Ring

Temporal Protection Corps Series Book Three

By E. W. Barnes

A post-apocalyptic nightmare and a terrifying dystopian world – in the future created by the Chestnut Covin, time travel no longer exists.

 Kidnapped into the future only hours after being sworn-in as a Temporal Protection Corps Agent, Sharon finds herself in a nightmare world where everything and everyone she knew has been destroyed. The few humans that remain are either the hunters or the hunted.

But her kidnapper-turned-guide is dangerously delusional, and refuses to tell her anything except that she is the key to erasing the horrifying future created by the mysterious conspiracy, the Chestnut Covin.

Pursued by hunters who want her life; secret police who want her knowledge; and the enigmatic Natalie Johnson who wants her dead, there’s only one chance to save the world – Sharon must make the most terrible decision of her life.

“Out of Time – The Roman Ring” is the exciting conclusion to the Temporal Protection Corps series.
