This is the first novel in what has become one of the most popular series in contemporary SF, now back in print from Tor. In the 24th century, the Company preserves works of art and extinct forms of life (for profit of course). It recruits orphans from the past, renders them all but immortal, and trains them to serve the Company, Dr. Zeus. One of these is Mendoza the botanist. She is sent to Elizabethan England to collect samples from the garden of Sir Walter Iden. But while there, she meets Nicholas Harpole, with whom she falls in love. And that love sounds great bells of change that will echo down the centuries, and through the succeeding novels of The Company.

5.0 Garden of Iden by Kage Baker
One wonderful character we start following in the first book of the series is Mendoza. She is an impoverished waif, but with a mind and a mouth. This proves to be very dangerous given that she has the bad luck to be living under the oppressive regime of the Inquisition in Spain during the 1500s. She...

3.0 In the Garden of Iden
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I liked the characters. The story dragged about a third of the way through until the end. I do love the premise and may stick with the series for another book.

3.0 La compagnia del tempo
L'incipit e l'idea di base sono interessanti. Buono anche il finale. Peccato che lo sviluppo centrale s'impaludi nelle pastoie del romanzo storico/romance, rendendo la lettura decisamente poco scorrevole e noiosa.
