My book is great, the rankings aren't because of the name change. I lost all of my reviews and I dropped in the rankings. 

Sample text:

The titanium handcuffs Heinrich Mueller had locked around Lucky’s wrists neutralized his extraordinary ability to create and manipulate the time portals. Removing the handcuffs was a difficult chore, but Rufio Albio’s blacksmith, who worked at his Roman villa, had succeeded in filing off the handcuffs. When the cuffs were removed, Lucky discovered that he had lost many of his evolving abilities. He had retrogressed back to the beginning, when during his convalescence; he first discovered the time portals. His wish now was that as time passed, he would regain all or some of his lost abilities. His new abilities allowed him to manipulate the vibrational frequencies of his body, which allowed him to create a time portal at will that would take him anywhere he wanted to go in the past. All he had to do was to think of a portal and the shimmering shower of pulsing light immediately appeared before him. He hoped those lost abilities would return, but because of the debilitating effects the titanium bracelets had on him, he lost that ability. He discovered something he never knew. He found out the hard way that titanium was to him what Kryptonite was to Superman.

Lucky learned to create a portal when he was imprisoned by the mad billionaire in his dungeon in Romania and forced to create one. Kouras wanted Lucky to take him to his ancestor Vlad the Impaler, and he hedged his bet by kidnapping the sleeping Princess Krystina, who was languishing in the Compound hospital ill and near death. Lucky tried saving her life by taking her from the 12th century, where the treatment was primitive, to the present where he hoped the Compound’s doctors could utilize the modern medical facilities and had access to the latest in medical technology and medicines to restore her health.

Kouros ordered his hired mercenaries to kidnap the princess, keep her under sedation, and take her to his castle without Lucky being aware that she was there.
