Losing the twenty-first century was bad enough, but Martha Bigalow's situation is about to become a whole lot worse.
Only days after her marriage to Vadim—a handsome outlaw stalked by grim shadows of the past—Martha is captured by his arch nemesis, the evil Earl of Edgeway.
While awaiting her fate in a dank dungeon beneath Edgeway's castle, Vadim’s twisted foster brother— Anselm—offers her a way out, an alternative to a tortuous and painful death.
Forced into a life of deceit, Martha discovers friendship where she least expects to find it, even within the stronghold of the enemy, and by the time war descends on Edgeway, the boundary between black and white—between friend and foe—is less distinct.
As the castle braces itself for a bitter siege, Martha's loyalty is divided, her love for Vadim tested to its limit... and may prove to be yet another casualty of war.
Although this is a time travel book, I am counting it as my book from a different country.
This book take off right where Tales of a Traveler: Book One: Hemlock (Time Travel Adventure Serial) left off. It was really good and I immediately purchased the third in the series. Although, I am not sure how I’m going to make it work for the 50 Book Challenge. (I might just have to read something that doesn’t count….gasp.)
I really like the characters in this series. It doesn’t matter what time period they live in, they are realistic and well-written. I feel as if I know most of the characters, even the less circumstantial ones. I especially like that the characters are not based in good or evil, but a nice mix.
The story line is interesting and well paced. I can’t wait to read the next one!
