Wow! Bob Atkinson not only writes a good action story, but he provokes a reader to ponder the possibility of different realities, or even alternate universes. The Last Sunset is reminiscent of Diana Gabaldon‘s Outlander series, insomuch that time travel and the fateful battle at Culloden play a major role in the theme. But that is as far as it goes.
In The Last Sunset , the heroine of the story, Shawnee, an American lass with Highlander roots, is much less concerned about the history changing results of time travel (like little interferences changing major historical events); instead, she is more concerned that she and the others who have found themselves thrown into an earlier century will not be able to prevent that infamous massacre of her people back in the mid-1700’s.
I give this book a thumbs-up, and I hope that Mr. Atkinson gifts us with a sequel.
