'A fireworks display from two very talented storytellers' Madeline Miller, author of Circe

Co-written by two award-winning writers, This Is How You Lose the Time War is an epic love story spanning time and space.

Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading.
Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.

Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them. There's still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win that war. That's how war works. Right?

'An intimate and lyrical tour of time, myth and history' John Scalzi, bestselling author of Old Man's War

'Lyrical and vivid and bittersweet' Ann Leckie, Hugo Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice

'Rich and strange, a romantic tour through all of time and the multiverse' Martha Wells, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Murderbot Diaries

Review:

This book has it all: treachery and love, lyricism and gritty action, existential crisis and space-opera scope, not to mention time travelling superagents. Gladstone's and El-Mohtar's debut collaboration is a fireworks display from two very talented storytellers (Madeline Miller, internationally bestselling author of Circe and Song of Achilles)

An intimate and lyrical tour of time, myth and history, with a captivating conversation between characters - and authors. Read it (John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author of The Collapsing Empire)

Lyrical and vivid and bittersweet. An absolutely lovely read from two talented writers (Ann Leckie, Hugo Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice)

This is How You Lose the Time War is rich and strange, a romantic tour through all of time and the multiverse, and you shouldn't miss a moment (Martha Wells, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Murderbot Diaries)

Exquisitely crafted . . . Part epistolary romance, part mind-blowing science fiction adventure, this dazzling story unfolds bit by bit . . . Full of fanciful ideas and poignant moments, weaving a tapestry stretching across the millennia and through multiple realities that's anchored with raw emotion and a genuine sense of wonder. This short novel warrants multiple readings to fully unlock its complexities (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)

Spectacular . . . Poetry, disguised as genre fiction. I read several sections out loud - this is prose that wants to be more than read. It wants to be heard and tasted (Kelly Sue DeConnick, creator of Captain Marvel)

If Iain M. Banks and Gerard Manley Hopkins had ever been able to collaborate on a science fiction project, well, it wouldn't be half as much fun as this novella by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone. There is all the pleasure of a long series, and all the details of an much larger world, presented in miniature here (Kelly Link, MacArthur Genius Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist for Get in Trouble)

Fast-paced and intricately plotted (Temi Oh, author Do You Dream of Terra-Two?)

A time travel adventure that has as much humanity, grace, and love as it has temporal shenanigans, rewriting history, and temporal agents fighting to the death. Two days from now, you've already devoured it (Ryan North, New York Times Bestselling and Eisner Award winning author of How to Invent Everything: A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveler)

Sweet, hopeful, and unashamedly beautiful (SciFiNow)

Book Description:

Two time-travelling agents from warring futures, working their way through the past, begin to exchange letters - and fall in love in this thrilling and romantic book from award-winning authors Amal-El Mohtar and Max Gladstone.
