On holiday from university with her family in Israel, Gwyn stumbles across a strange device while exploring the ruins of Masada. She is unwittingly thrown back two thousand years in time to the bloody siege between the Roman invaders and fiercely nationalistic Jewish defenders. Blending in is her only option to stay alive; but can she escape before the siege comes to a head?

Meanwhile, Michelle is the Time Space Agent from the year 2623 AD trying to escape her enemies and recover her lost time machine, all while inadvertently stumbling on a dangerous political plot.

The clock is ticking as Gwyn and Michelle’s timelines hurtle towards each other in this historical adventure based on the real events of Roman conquest in Ancient Judea. The actions of these two time travellers, born centuries apart, will impact not just each other’s survival, but the fates of past and future worlds alike.

Faridah Nassozi – November 14, 2016

Ladies and gentlemen, strap yourselves in for an epic ride across time periods in this thrilling tale of time travel and political conspiracies in The Siege of Masada. Jodie Lane put together one hell of a compelling story. The Siege of Masada is flawlessly delivered with elaborate and captivating detail to make it a one of kind read. Even without looking at the dates, I could easily tell when the story moved from one time period to another through the realistic details; the dried dates, bread and oil meal was indicative of much earlier eras while the synthesized food is definitely ahead of our time. Through the memorable characters, compelling plot, and richly detailed settings, the story comes alive in a thrilling and beautiful way. An epic start to a series guaranteed to give you time travel envy.
