Don't read that blurb up there

Listing to a book with a lot of history with me, I first read #TheTimeGod by #lemodesittjr around 1984, I think under a different title, #thefiresofparatime , borrowed it from the library and the plot stuck to my brain but I had forgotten the author and the title, just a story in my brain, then I read #themagicofrecluce and one book after another in the series and I was following his work. The Timegod was reprinted and I read that and realized that it was the same story that I had been thinking about for years.

In August, it came out in Audible and I picked it up for a 4th reading in another medium. The protagonist is Loki and this book shaped what I thought about Loki for my entire life, there is a planet with people who can time travel, they're basically parasites who skim off the cream of civilization, if something challenges them, they end the civilization, they seed ideas and come back for the final product whenever it pops up. Their own civilization is supported by a small group of time guards. Loki realizes that what they're doing isn't right and things get epic.

This book takes myth and puts an entirely different spin on it. L.E. Modesett's books are always thoughtful and is a good voice of reason in a chaotic world. If you're a heavy reader, you can see parts of this book scattered across the SciFi and Fantasy sphere and probably like me before picking it up the second time, they don't even realize that they picked it up here. Also, Audible has the totally wrong blurb up for the book.
