TimeGods World by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
Query was a strange world lacking resources. Query was a violent world with class clashes that resulted in a unified world of time travelers dependent on the Guard for everything. Soul searching philosophy generally accompanies the action and adventure in a Modesitt book.
This is a twin book, encompassing “Timediver’s Dawn” and “The TimeGod”. Modesitt’s books make you think. You have to ponder the relationships between action and re-action. Is vengeance a satisfactory method of solving problems? How do ethics stand up to survival? That sounds suspiciously like philosophy which does characterize all of his books. I don’t know that I have read all of his books, but I have certainly made a valiant attempt. While forcing you to think, Modesitt keeps you entertained with a solid plot and lots of action.
I highly recommend it.
