Given a choice between the pleasant life you knew centuries ago or the possibility of all you want in an uncertain new world, which would you choose?
Two men torn through time find themselves in the modern but alien world.
Old enemies, one hunting the other,one discovering love, both fighting private battles to survive.
Our author starts this story with a fight on the battlefield of 1356 France. Stephen Palmer is one of those men on the field. His enemy, Roger Marchaund, is also there. Then both men seem to disappear. Stephen suffers an injury that will change his life forever.
This is a book that can be read as a stand-alone (which I can attest to since I personally have not read books one or two). You will meet characters from the other books but Chris doesn’t confuse you if this is your first book from her series. But if you want to learn more about these characters, what better way then to read the rest of the Knights in Time. Sometimes things become clearer when you have the chance to read what you missed.
Stephen is friend to Shakira and Alex Lancaster. They have asked Esme Crippen for some help. What I loved about this story was that Chris shows how hard time travel really is – not everyone transitions immediately into the new world. It’s not like they can study the history books that haven’t been written yet.
If you like to listen to music while reading, Stephen seems to like the music from Phantom of the Opera. Whenever I get the chance, I put Pandora on and listen to the cast that includes Michael Crawford. If you don’t know who he is, rent the Barbra Streisand movie Hello Dolly – you will realize what a great voice he has. The one disappointment I had was that we aren’t able to hear Stephen sing. Maybe someday that will all change.
Chris has a way with words that will transport you to a place where a man fights for the truth he believes in. A blind man that must learn to be independent and that even though he may be blind he can still receive love. And as the story progresses she doesn’t try to give him a miracle. We used to feel sorry for anyone that was blind because there was not much they could do. But our author shows that life does not end by losing one of our senses – there is so much more to be gained. If you love a historical romance that turns into a contemporary tale than this book is a must read. (Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
