When Melisande Stokes, an expert in linguistics and languages, accidently meets military intelligence operator Tristan Lyons in a hallway at Harvard University, it is the beginning of a chain of events that will alter their lives and human history itself. Tristan needs Mel to translate some very old documents, which, if authentic, are earth-shattering. They prove that magic actually existed and was practiced for centuries. Something about the modern world "jams" the "frequencies" used by magic, and it's up to Tristan to find out why. And so the Department of Diachronic Operations (D.O.D.O.) gets cracking on its real mission: to develop a device that can bring magic back and send Diachronic Operatives back in time to keep it alive.

This was fun. A real lark of a story. The audio was perfect; very well done.
Magic has disappeared from the world and D.O.D.O. want to bring it back. Time travel and witches will solve that. Right? What can go wrong?
This is an elaborate use of the Schroedinger's Cat theory. It works. But what happens when motivations get muddy?
This story is funny, interesting, blends science with fantasy & history. It's got a crazy mix happenings. It's hilarious at times.
Told completely in an epistolary way through letters, diaries, memos, email, notes, etc.

A fun romp of a story. I thoroughly enjoyed the craziness.

...also Vikings appear! What could get better than that? LOL!
