Publisher's Summary

What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world? Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaeologist parents.
Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds... until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in 14th-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

A Great Escape!

Any additional comments?

Ok, so I only make comments when a particular book/series is just awesome. I love the way Lisa Bergren enthralled me into this historical fiction, incredible love story, totally funny series! Yes, it is cheesy at times but what 14th century knights are not a little cheesy when it comes to love...especially in Italy! If you love a love story, great action and a little funny, this book is for you! I am so happy that I picked this treasure up! I realized, with all the distopian novels I have been reading that sometimes are a really sad, OK, a lot sad, this book was just refreshing! I guess I can say that when I read a good book/series that I cannot put down and laugh along the way and feel happy love....it is a winner! Some other reviews say that Pam Turlow (the narrator) was not that great...l beg to differ. She puts in some great talent here. Her Italian is wonderful and brings the story to life! Her voice is a little deeper than most 17 year old, high pitched, annoying voices, so it was fine with me. All I can say is....THIS WAS AWESOME!

Annoying Narrator Voice

The story and the writing of this book were great- I got sucked in at the beginning and was extremely eager to find out what would happen next. The concept of the plot- time travel to 14th century Italy- was really interesting to me.
However, I thought the narrator's voice was annoying. She was exaggerated, over the top, and cheesy at times- I found myself rolling my eyes or cringing throughout the book. I think a younger narrator would have been better suited for the reading of this book (since the main character is 17 and uses several expressions that only teenagers would use). I especially disliked her voice of Gabriella's younger sister- it was high pitched and whiny. The narrator did do a good job with the Italian men's voices, though.
All in all, despite my dissatisfaction with the narrator, I found the book enjoyable and will definitely read the next book in the series to find out what happens next! I hope the audiobook for the next books in the series will be available soon (hopefully with a younger narrator).
