Book Review: This Is How You Lose the Time War

Go read it.

This Is How You Lost the Time War is one of the most beautifully written pieces of fiction I've ever read. I even read parts of it out loud because the words were that delicious.

I don't read out loud.


I loved this book too much to write a detailed review. I'm still reeling from the experience and I can't wait to read it again.

In short, it's a love story scattered through time and space, giving you a peek into the worlds of two intergalactic time soldiers while leaving a tantalizing universe hidden between the lines on every page. It's a intimate tale of godlike spies who find themselves having more in common with each other than their own communities and how they hide their budding relationship from their own hivemind-like transhumanist(?)/alien(?) collectives.

I'm at a loss for words because nothing I write will ever be as gorgeous as the poetry within its pages.

This Is How You Lose the Time War is a lovingly crafted puzzle-box of a novel that deserves a place on your shelf.

Go read it.
