Editorial Reviews


Praise for Time Trials:
"Here's a book you really might like.
Time Trials is a deadly adventure in which a band of modern humans get taken back in time to Earth's pre-historyand they find that humanity is herded and hunted by alien monsters, who look like the gods of Ancient Egypt. Time Trials has wonder and action in equal measure, with humor and even a little romance on the side. The characters are so charming and diverse, I wish I knew them in real life. For you gamers, there's a fun little bonus too, because there are fantasy gaming elements woven subtly into the story. Take a look at Time Trialsyou might find it's a new favorite."
—Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Time Trials takes an eclectic band of 21st century adventurers — led by brilliant, unorthodox Chinese-Jewish Egyptologist Marty Cohen — back in time to the earliest pre-history of Egypt to battle demons, hobnob with the ancient king who first united Egypt, and discover things about themselves they never knew. Oh, and along the way, prevent the total extermination of the human race. It's a nonstop action story that mingles strains of Indiana Jones and Stargate in a blend that's all its own."
—David Weber, New York Times bestselling author of the Honor Harrington series

"If Michael Crichton came back from the dead riding on a T-Rex, that would be almost as much fun as
Time Trials. This is a must-read!"
—Larry Correia, New York Times bestselling author of Monster Hunter International

Time Trials is a superb, well-researched blend of archaeology and mythos, like Indiana Jones fighting the Egyptian pantheon using elements of gaming. I highly enjoyed it."
—Dakota Krout, Bestselling author of Divine Dungeon, and Completionist Chronicles

"Rothman and Butler are masterful storytellers.
Time trials is an isekai adventure romp through history, chock-full of compelling characters, awesome action, and fantastic Gamelit elements that kept me flipping pages late into the night."
—James A. Hunter, Bestselling author of Vigil's Justice, Rogue Dungeon, and Viridian Gate Online

"An entertaining first entry in what promises to be a fantastic time-travel series."
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the authors' other works:
"... you can't stop yourself from taking another bite...and another...and another....I didn't want to stop reading.... Kudos!"
      —R.A. Salvatore, New York Times Bestselling Author

"Rothman's stories are a roller coaster of action, science, and thriller all rolled into one. You won't be disappointed."
      —Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author

"Written by one who really knows the science..."
      —Gregory Benford, New York Times bestselling author

"M.A. Rothman is a writer of stories that carry you away into imaginative worlds where surprises abound, and the only thing that you can expect, is the unexpected.

With Butler, this is your chance to discover one of the finest new stars writing today!"
      —David Farland, New York Times bestselling author.

​"This is enchanting! I'd love to see more."
      —Mercedes Lackey New York Times bestselling author

"The characters come to life in an interesting blend of both Science and Fantasy, and should bring readers of both into a happy place."
      —Ernest G. Gygax, Jr.

About the Author

USA TODAY bestselling author M.A. Rothman is an accidental novelist whose writing career started when he began writing down the bedtime stories he told his boys. He's an engineer first and foremost, with a background in the sciences, and through sheer happenstance, his writing habit turned into something more than a hobby.

His writing spans the genres of science fiction, techno-thriller, and his own unique spin on LitRPG.

When not writing, he enjoys cooking, learning about new technology, travel, and spending time with his family.

D.J. ("Dave") Butler grew up in swamps, deserts, and mountains. After messing around for years with the practice of law, he finally got serious and turned to his lifelong passion of storytelling. He now writes adventure stories for readers of all ages, plays guitar, and spends as much time as he can with his family. He is the author of City of the Saints, Rock Band Fights Evil, Space Eldritch, and Crecheling from Wordfire Press, and Witchy Eye, Witchy Winter, Witchy Kingdom, and Serpent Daughter, and The Cunning Man and The Jupiter Knife with coauthor Aaron Michael Ritchey, In the Palace of Shadow and Joy, and Abbott in Darkness, from Baen. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
