Beyond Yesterday is the third book in the Beyond Saga by Greg Spry, a compelling sci-fi tale with well-imagined and excellently executed characters. Commander Maya Davis should be the happiest person after getting a new promotion in the interstellar spaceflight, but despair begins to settle in when she learns that her new mission is, in fact, a one-way journey into the distant past. She is tasked to sail the space-time vessel, Yesterday, to find out why an important piece of technology for the 23rd century appeared two hundred thousand years earlier. Now, hundreds of years in the past, she must choose between her safety and the freedom of mankind.

Greg Spry has exceptional skills for a well-imagined and exciting plot, creating a storyline that is as absorbing as it is adventurous. The idea of a piece of technology designed for the 23rd century appearing many hundreds of years earlier was an intriguing and exciting one and I couldn’t avoid the hook. The characters are well-imagined, too. They are excellently developed and it is interesting to watch the protagonist caught up in a strong dilemma. The psychological conflict is as compelling as the physical one, and readers are seduced by the development of both within the fast-paced plot. The conflict escalates faster than I expected when I started reading and I found myself racing through the pages, eager to find out how the story ends. From the setting, through plot, to thematic and character development, the reader is left in no doubt that Beyond Yesterday is the work of a master storyteller. It is an exciting read!
