Fortuna A Felix Taylor Adventure

by Nicholas Maes

Part of the A Felix Taylor Adventure Series

Fortuna A Felix Taylor Adventure Synopsis

Felix Taylor once stopped a devastating plague, but now he must save his world from humankind itself. It's been a year since Felix Taylor travelled back to ancient Rome and saved his world from a lethal plague. Again his knowledge of Latin seems useless now that life in the 23rd century has returned to normal. But is it really? A stranger has discovered the time machine and used it to project back into the past. It becomes clear his purpose is to reverse Felix's success, to bring back the plague and doom future generations to death. To make matters worse, this stranger is very close to Felix. With help from his friend Carolyn, Felix must return to the world of Julius Caesar, as well as a later era divided by religion, to stop the re-emergence of the plague. If he fails to do so, his world will turn to dust like ancient Rome.

Fortuna A Felix Taylor Adventure Press Reviews

Fortuna is a creative read that will please fans of the first book and those interested in the blending of ancient history with future technology. * Canadian Materials magazine * An engaging read for both the fantasy and historical genre. Recommended for recreational reading and literature study groups. What Maes does extremely well is to challenge his readers to consider the roles that history and religion play in our lives, and to understand how vital emotion and memory actually is. Whether you're a history buff or a sci-fi fan, these novels are entertaining and thought-provoking, and well-worth offering to tween readers. *, *
