    Trapped in a mysterious prison run by robots and an alien specious; a group of humans have been imprisoned for generations As the prison systems degenerate some of them begin to become aware of their surroundings and try to escape from the prison which is placed in an isolated area of an alien planet Others become taken over by the aliens As the story progresses it is revealed there are two kinds of aliens One Ones and New Ones they are working to change the course of human history by interfering with the past especially the Italian renaissanceThe book is interesting and compelling The main character is well developed and the reader really sympathizes with her efforts to escape from the alien mind control to find love and to escape from the prison The pacing is excellent and holds the reader's interest However one has to overlook the ridiculous back story of aliens and interfering with the past I like time travel stories as well as anyone but these parts of the plot make no sense

    DNF 50%Good writing and an interesting settingbut the beginning is incredibly confusing and there isn't a lot of payoff once it becomes clear what is going on The slow pace and awkward unveiling needed to lead to something better I'm not willing to stick around for the second half of the novel only to hit mediocre revelations which are already printed on the dust jacket

    35 This was uite intriguing in both concept and execution much better than I was expecting up until where the plotting turned a bit pedestrian and some gaping holes opened up The slow reveal and Italian twist in general were right up my alley; the resolution not so much a few interesting bits in there but rushed and disappointingly silly

    While not a true time travel genre novel it is central to the resolution to the story line The story of human struggle in prison from oppressive captors held my interest enough to plow through
