I didn't like two things about this book: it has a fairly slow, jumpy start, and some scenes seem to be included only for the purpose of manipulating the reader's emotions and not to move the plot along.
That said, it's still a thrilling story, the heroine is delightfully strong, and the quality of the research is amazing - the author truly brings this historical setting to life. I definitely recommend it to any history buffs who appreciate strong female protagonists.
As a middle school teacher, I am always looking for books that will interest teen readers, teach a lesson, and span the interest level to their parents as well. This book was fantastic. It was a quick read with well developed characters and a truly fun plot. All 3 of the books in the series were fantastic.
I saw this book in a Christian Book Distributors catalog. My son is a voracious reader so I wanted to see if I could find him some new stuff for the summer. I guess from the description I should have known these weren't going to be for him, but I guess I just read the part about time travel and medieval times and just went with it. They are definitely not for him, but I believe the YA girls and adult ladies will certainly enjoy. Books 4 and 5 of the series are only available in e-format at this point. The author has indicated that more sales would possibly allow for printed versions, so I am aiming to spread the word. I absolutely LOVED these books!!!!
Ever since I saw this series advertised by Christian Book Distributors I've been wanting to read it! I finished Waterfall recently and cannot wait to continue the series! I love time traveling stories as well as Christian fiction, so this combination by an incredibly talented author is amazing. Looking forward to more. God Bless~Virginia
