Thunder Mountain by Dean Wesley Smith is one of those reads that defies genre classification. Take some romance, throw in a little bit of historical fiction and add a dash of time travel and science fiction and you have the basis for this interesting story. … The premise for Thunder Mountain is intriguing and will appeal to fans of both historical and science fiction. This is an easy, light read, and I am interested in revisiting these characters on their future adventures.”

This book was so authentic~like because I really felt I was in the party of the time travelers...especially the two new ones: Dawn and Madison. Refer to the Details description. It kept me on edge for the entire book! I have read alittle of time travel stories. Whew! Dean Wesley Smith has gone beyond any expectations! Superb. Alittle romance. Great characters that make the story so completely wonderful. Good ending. There is a hint of more of these books. I am going to be checking on those. It was free. You should try it, I feel you will be surprised as I was. 🐰🐰🐰

Thunder Mountain

This book has a great concept. The idea of time travel with the crystal cavern and the millions of different time lines was fantastic! But there was no real character development and no real depth to the story. So much detail and emotion and drama exists in that story that just wasn’t even touched. This could be an epic tale of time travel! It just fell very flat and felt very basic and bland. It read like a first time rough draft attempt at a novel. Dig deep into the romance, develop the characters, really describe the day to day events of their experiences in full color, let us feel like we are there with them. So much time went by, but was glossed over. I’d love to read this re-worked!
