Publisher's Summary

Late one evening, en route to visit a relative, an accident leaves Tory - the attractive, twenty-something daughter of a prominent history professor – stranded near a ring of stones in Britain. Tory resolves to spend the night at the stone circle and seek help in the morning.... But across the vortex of time and space, she is taken back to the Dark Age. There she meets Prince Maelgwn of Gwynedd and his band of warriors. Initially her 'strange' appearance frightens them and they believe she is the notorious witch fabled to frequent the site. But she overcomes their fear and soon the tales of her adventures, brave deeds, and beauty spread across the land.

One of the best beginnings to a superb trillogy!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it opens into one of the best trillogies I have ever read. This audio version is excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tori is going to be every ones fave. She represents so much that is true in us and what we should be aspiring to.

What does Edwina Wren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Edwina brough pronunciation of the welsh names that I had only done phonetically from reading the books. Her lilting voice and subtle use of accents and tonal changes for the characters was nicely done.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many!

Any additional comments?

When do we get the rest of the trillogies as audio books?

Teenage fiction at its best

In Tory Alexander, Harding has created a character so beautiful, so perfect, so fabulous in every single way that one finds it exeptionally hard to empathise with her. Not only is she beautiful, she is a black belt in Karate, well read in historical Britain, the daughter of a world famous musician and university lecturer and she happens (conveniently) to speak the exact dialect of the people who find her (which pretty much seems to be modern and colloquial English with a thee, thine and thou thrown in for good measure)!
Within days of arriving in medieval Wales, Tory has entranced everyone in the castle. The King (and most of his men - obviously) are so enamoured with this perfect being they hang on her every word and urge her to teach them the amazing fighting style she posesses.
Within weeks Tory has bagged the King, become Queen, suddenly gains magical powers, succeeds in changing centuries old attitudes to women so that they are equal to the men, helps her 'people' deal with childhood demons by hugging, sets up her own dojo and continues to prove that she is a strong, independent woman with no time for that silly feminine stuff, despite getting fluffy over pretty dresses and 'boys'!
Two thirds of the way through and I can't handle any more of this pithy, preachy Mary-Sue fiction. If you are a fan of juvenile romance stories (or a teenage girl) then this book is probably a perfect fantasy adventure for you. If you are not, move on to the next book!

Interesting story and well read

I am glad I got this book; the story has some interesting plots based around variations of on King Arthur type stories. Simply a good story to have in my collections of audio books, I am looking forward to others books in this series.

Bit of a struggle

I have always loved Traci's storylines and originality however The Dark Age certainly

struggled to keep me interested.
