Unknown to Godfellow though, one of his allies, the ancient Mongol Prince Temujin Gur, has his own plans for violating a forbidden magical boundary and raising Ghengis Khan from the ashes. If the World Makers fail to defeat him, all of Europe will perish and history will be rewritten in the darkest way imaginable. If the World Makers fail to create a new time stream in the 20th century by rerouting or stopping the two world wars, the dominoes will fall to Godfellow in the 21st. With the aid of his elite forces and an American military drone fleet augmented by sorcery, he will sweep the Earth and realize his tragic vision of The Overman poised to invade the stars.
War of the World Makers is a historical fantasy that spans the ages and packs the pages with information, references, and research. And it's a story told through a myriad of characters, like any true epic, but the two most prominent are Zolo, a spellcrafter, and Czarina Catherine II (and somewhat Zoltan Gur).
As a history major I found the novel woven with subtle details that carry the story through to the conclusion (and while finished, leaves the possibility for further stories). The consequences of all time seem to converge as even Da Vinci himself is a major player, and even has his own intriguing chapter, that raise the stakes in a thought provoking manner.
If you're a fan of dense epics, history (no matter how slightly) and great magic systems, I would highly recommend War of the World Makers. - 5 Star Review on Amazon
