    3.5 stars Another fun book by Laumer where his stories of time travel are actually jumping from 1 alternate reality to another This is the last book in the Imperium omnibus, although there s a 4th book in the series.This time around, the lead from the first 2 novels takes a backseat By doing this, Laumer was able to use the wide eyed innocence again, while still trusting to a degree that the reader was already familiar It was an obvious answer as I was reading it, but it worked well enough.My only complaint with this book was that the plot was a bit poorly explained Save this world from decaying into chaos, mold it to your own whims, figure out who s good and who s bad is this an alternate timeline from what the reader knows, making the original lead bad Overall the plot was goodI just think Laumer s expositions to explain things suffered a bit in this volume Still, a fun romp through alternate histories.

    Pretty disappointing, but it held my interest enough that I give it 3 stars The first book of this series Worlds of the Imperium was really fun and the second The Other Side of Time was acceptable Eric Flint says in the postscript to the epub omnibus of this series that Keith Laumer was never very concerned with continuity, and I agree That foible is to the detriment of this book, however the plot was very hard to follow and having knowledge of the previous works made the inconsistencies jarring On the flip side, I think that without any prior knowledge of the series this book would have been almost incomprehensible.Bottom line A fair action story in a world that only barely makes sense.
