I became hooked on this amazing, multi-award-winning time-travel series as soon as I read book one, BAD LOVE STRIKES. Now it’s possible to buy the whole series as a box set – what could be better?
What’s so special about this series? Well, not only has its author, Kevin L. Schewe MD, got a great imagination, but also the books are historically accurate, which I found really enhanced my enjoyment whilst reading them. However, this author has gone one step further, as the piece-de-resistance is that he has provided soundtracks to accompany each of the books, with hit songs from the 1960’s and 70’s guaranteed to get your feet tapping, whatever your age.
Each book happily stands-alone as a complete adventure, however, when you read the whole series, you discover there are storylines which run throughout. There are some additions to the gang as the books progress, as well as danger, adventure, and excitement, not forgetting the KGB spies, and a touch of romance…
Now I’ve wetted your lips, it’s for some tasters… BAD LOVE STRIKES is the first book, and it is here we are introduced to the Bad Love Gang, a group of teenagers from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who in1974 discover a tunnel which leads them to the White Hole Project. This project was a time machine invented by Einstein at President Roosevelt’s request. After learning how to use it, they go back in time to 1944 where they witness first-hand WWII and the plight of the holocaust victims, and their adventures begin.
It is New Year’s Eve 1975 when book two, BAD LOVE TIGERS begins. This time the gang’s mission is to try to uphold the secrets of Area 51 and the answer to the eternal question, “Have aliens ever visited Earth?”
Then in book three, BAD LOVE BEYOND they go out of this world to another galaxy, visiting Planet Azure, Earth’s sister planet. There, the gang not only help their alien friends the Blue Azurians, but also find a cure for cancer.
The final book in the box set, BAD LOVE MEDICINE finds the gang torn. They are tasked to change history in two ways, firstly by saving a gang members loved one from cancer, but also at the special request of Winston Churchill to stop Hitler and the Nazis from creating their own time machine.
Kevin L. Schewe MD, the author of this multi-award-winning series, is also a board-certified cancer specialist practicing radiation oncology for over 30 years, and a successful entrepreneur. His sister, who shares his love of time travel stories fought and survived cancer, she was his motivation behind the writing of his first book, and I for one am very pleased he did, and that he continued with this excellent series.
Lovers of time travel are in for a real treat with this exciting box set. Highly recommended!
