New Pompeii

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In the race to control renewable power, an energy giant stumbles on a controversial technology: the ability to transport matter from the deep past. Their biggest secret is New Pompeii, a replica city filled with Romans, pulled through time just before the volcanic eruption.

Nick Houghton doesn’t know why he’s been chosen to be the company’s historical advisor. He’s just excited to be there. Until he starts to wonder what happened to his predecessor. Until he realizes that the company has more secrets than even the conspiracy theorists suspect. 

Until he realizes that they have underestimated their captives…

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 18, 2016 – In this paradox-inflicted techno-thriller, all roads lead to Pompeii, or at least a modern recreation populated by original residents stolen from the historical city. Nick Houghton, a history scholar, takes a position with the mysterious Novus Particles corporation, which has the ability to snatch items and people out of the past. Its founders want Nick to join their latest project, New Pompeii, to infiltrate the populace and help maintain the fiction that it is still 79 C.E. Nick, already leery of Novus Particles, is further worried when he sees how the Roman "subjects" are learning to subvert the experiment. Debut novelist Godfrey puts in a lot of historical detail, comparing and contrasting the modern and ancient political schemers looking to turn situations to their own advantage. The ethics of time travel are also explored with intriguing results. Godfrey's nuanced affection for all things Roman shines through, but readers will have to wait for the sequel to get the answers they seek.

New Pompeii

A great read- true page turner. Mash up of time travel sci fi and historical fiction from Roman times. Works very well on both levels.
