England, 1605. When Lord Arik, a druid knight, finds Rebeka Tyler wandering his lands without protection, he swears to keep her safe. But Rebeka can take care of herself. When Arik sees her clash with a group of attackers using a strange fighting style, he’s intrigued.
Rebeka is no ordinary 17th-century woman – she’s travelled back from the year 2011, and she desperately wants to return to her own time. She poses as a scholar sent by the king to find out what’s killing Arik’s land. But as she works to decode the ancient runes that are the key to solving this mystery and sending her home, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic and powerful Arik.
As Arik and Rebeka fall in love, someone in Arik’s household schemes to keep them apart, and a dark druid with a grudge prepares his revenge. Soon Rebeka will have to decide whether to return to the future or trust Arik with the secret of her time travel and her heart.
Uncaged Review: One of the things that are such
fun with time travel books, is that when a modern
character gets sucked into the past, and then have
to try and find a way of communicating without
the people from that time period think they are
crazy. Rebeka is tossed into the 17th century, and
as she works to solve the mystery of going home,
she falls in love with Arik. One of the not-so-fun
parts of time travel for me, is do they elect to stay
in the past with their love, or do they go home?
I’m always torn with this scenario.
This is a well written story, it does start off very
slow – at least until Rebeka meets Arik. The characters
are easy to like and even though the story
wasn’t fast and action packed, it still held my interest
and it was great seeing Rebeka and Arik fall in
