What if you could travel 1,000 years into the past? What would you do? What would you change and where would you go? These are the questions raised in the first book, Traveller – Inceptio, of Rob Shackleford’s recently published science fiction trilogy, the “Traveller” series.
The novel begins with a mysterious character, Michael, alone in the woods. We see the world through his eyes as he tries to make sense of his surroundings and take note of all he can. Michael eventually makes his way to a small Saxon town where his knowledge, sword skills, and hunting ability lead the monks of the local monastery to believe he is the Archangel Michael sent by god to help protect them from the invading Vikings.
