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.

The premise of time travel back to the Dark Ages sounded like an interesting read, but after the 1st 6 hours it turned into a ridiculous story about how to manipulate men into marriage while staying "chaste". Too much goddess this and goddess that. The author contradicts herself constantly by trying to profess how strong her women are, with her main character teaching them all Marshal Arts to "protect" themselves, and then in the next sentence talking about how to get a MAN to marry them for "life" by with holding their "favors". Give me a break.
Maybe a good book to help women who have identity or self respect issues and/or feel threatened by men. Maybe this book should be in the Romance category.

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?


Any additional comments?

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