Full Circle: Time’s Warden is a work of science fiction by author Alfred Taylor. The central concept of the novel follows the idea of modern day and futuristic thinkers using time travel to return to key points in American history and bring about certain conclusions without destroying the course of history itself. Mark Aaron, a former historical researcher for Nora Corporation, visits the past again with his Gamma-class android companion, Jane. In this installment of Full Circle, the pair visit the American Civil War where another android is attempting to intensify the speed of the victory for the South, and the heroes face some hard truths about modern beliefs and what must be done in order to preserve the past.
I really enjoy combinations of science fiction with historical fiction, and the central time travel concept of Full Circle allowed for a really readable and exciting premise to the novel, following through into a plot that is very difficult to predict. Though the issue of racial tension and slavery was an obvious pressure point from the start, the journey that Mark goes on with the issue was sincere, difficult and heartfelt, presenting an unusual level of emotional depth for this genre of story. Alfred Taylor has a strong commitment and knowledge of American history, but it’s his concept of humanity and human nature which really shone for me. Overall, I’d definitely recommend Full Circle: Time’s Warden as an intriguing and action-packed tale which also raises important questions about human history and the path of war and civil rights.
