After eighty years of war the remnants of humanity on the Nayarit Line struggled to survive in sealed domes, surrounded by radioactive wasteland and genetically engineered viruses. It was in the last, desperate years of the war that the first trans-temporal portal was developed at Chiqu, a small research facility on the west coast of North America. As the domes finally failed and civilization collapsed around them, Iapura led fifty-three survivors to found a new empire on a parallel Earth; an Earth where, in 1884, Russian and English armies faced each other across America’s Great Plains, totally unprepared for the technology of the invading Nayarit. The Cross-Temporal Empire now encompasses fifty-four parallel Earths. But with its ruling Council riven by dissent the death of First Leader Manet, sets the Council into a slow and irrevocable slide into civil war.
A war that threatens not only the lives of the Clemhorn siblings: Conrad, Arnold, Donald, and Ivy; but the very future of the Empire.

Nightfall is the debut novel for Andrew J Harvey. This science fiction tells the story of the Cross Temporal Empire and its fifty four lines facing civil war and being eradicated. The Clemhorn siblings are being conflicted between their lives and their home. The future of the Cross Temporal Empire depends on the Clemhorn siblings, Conrad, Arnold, Donald and Ivy.
Nightfall is far from my normal genre I generally read. Even though it is not my favorite era, it does prove to me that readers should go outside their comfort zone. They could be missing out on a good read. The book did take me a little bit to understand what was going on with the story. About fifty pages in, I was intrigued and wanted to continue on to see where this tale would lead to next. It is a mixture of suspense, action, adventure, and mystery. I felt like I was on quite a thrilling ride. I did not feel like the plot was in any way predictable. I was surprised at some of the twists. About half way through, I was hooked and wanted to keep reading until the end. The author did a great job bringing this new world to life, as well as, bringing these characters to life.
I am giving Nightfall three and a half stars. I would be interested in seeing where Andrew H Harvey’s imagination will take his readers to in his next release. I recommend Nightfall and believe readers who enjoy alternative history / science fiction would like this one. It is definitely wort a read.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
