Get the Boy, Own the Future

by Gabriel F.W. Koch


Book Details

By 2235, the island empire drifted afloat in the Arctic-equatorial zone. I felt pleased my mission could and, I felt sure, would change the Emperor’s confinement, and more. End the spiral of ecological disaster and 185 years of continuous warfare. If I failed, in less than 50 years, no known science or technology would be capable of stopping total environmental collapse—and human extinction.

The future hinges on the life of a boy living in nineteenth-century Virginia City. A twenty-third-century warrior is sent back in time to save the boy—and save the human empire—but he may lose everything, whether he succeeds or not. Especially after adopting the name James Custer.
