Fire in the Straw by Stephen Baird
A single incident can cause reverberations through time, like dropping fire in the straw...
Have you ever thought there might be more to life than meets the eye?
Although Mac feels pretty average he is thrown into the tumultuous world of time travel by the ominous ruby-fingered man and a pale-faced, barely comprehensible child. Mac discovers average does not even begin to explain to him, as there is "adventure, mystery and a fight for survival" (Baird) ahead. A single incident causes reverberations through time, like dropping fire in the straw...
Stephen Baird presents `Fire in the Straw' - a time travel adventure with a twist. Leaving aliens and monsters behind Baird explores far more gritty themes, where to place trust in a world of deceit, the danger of living for justice, and how religious or political differences can create turmoil. Based in a medieval time city, Loxeter, this unique and intriguing story will have you hooked.
The historical authenticity is fascinating, and the references to real-life events make you question if there is any truth behind it.
Filled with characters to love, hate, and laugh with, besides the ingenious imagination of the author, `Fire in the Straw' is gripping and difficult to put down. This is "a classic in the making" (GP Taylor), so give it a whirl.
