"Keep working on it, Rutt! Mankind can benefit greatly from time travel! Keep the discussion alive with scientists in the Assembly, but be cautious about anyone who condemns our work. I know time travel exists." It was 1910, and these were some of the last words left by paleontologist Dr. Eyestone to his friend Ruttledge Rosenbaugh, a professor of science at Hensley University. Months after the funeral, Ruttledge encountered a peculiar young girl in his secret laboratory. The experience haunts him, and it takes him years to prove that time travel is possible, albeit with a gruesome catalyst and unpleasant outcome. He also has to be wary of individuals who try to sully his name and his work. Myth Agent is a sci-fi mystery by L.A. MacFadden.
Time travel is one of my favorite themes and the main appeal of Myth Agent. The classic concept is deftly developed into a fresh story premise. The plot has a steady pace, although at certain points the subject of time travel takes a back seat as readers get to know the protagonists and their backstory. The characters are well fleshed out with considerable depth of their disposition and emotions. The narrative is clear and engaging－I appreciate the fact that there's no heavy technical jargon used to deliver the core concept of the tale. That said, I did have to pay extra attention to the story timeline as the chapters alternate between different characters' POVs. The ending leaves behind a mystery that surely needs to be answered. Overall, a commendable story from MacFadden and I look forward to reading more of this author's work.
