£10.00

Co-written by two award-winning writers, This Is How You Lose the Time War is an epic love story spanning time and space. Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading.

Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic.

Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future. Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them.

There’s still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win that war. That’s how war works.

Right?

  1. Anna (verified owner)

    How do you distill an epic into less than 200 pages? How do you lose the time war for that matter. This novella is a love letter to letters, to getting to know someone so utterly different from yourself and yet doing a relatively similar job. It delights in history and myth, swinging from Atlantis to steampunk in barely more than a breath and making it work before going anywhere and everywhere because it can. This Is How You Lose The Time War demands your full focus and invites rereading.
