Publisher's Summary

England, 1605. When Lord Arik, a druid knight, finds Rebeka Tyler wandering his lands without protection, he swears to keep her safe. But Rebeka can take care of herself. When Arik sees her clash with a group of attackers using a strange fighting style, he's intrigued.

Rebeka is no ordinary 17th-century woman - she's travelled back from the year 2011, and she desperately wants to return to her own time. She poses as a scholar sent by the king to find out what's killing Arik's land. But as she works to decode the ancient runes that are the key to solving this mystery and sending her home, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic and powerful Arik.

As Arik and Rebeka fall in love, someone in Arik's household schemes to keep them apart, and a dark druid with a grudge prepares his revenge. Soon Rebeka will have to decide whether to return to the future or trust Arik with the secret of her time travel and her heart.

    "Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    The worst performance of an audio book I have ever heard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Montana Chase’s performances?

    I would not try another of her readings.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed in this book.

    "A mystic love story that's full of suspense!"

    An entertaining read! Almost immediately, I could see the landscape of the era, and the awe the storyteller felt at being thrust into a new reality. Quickly and easily, the reader will empathize and imagine how frightening, yet interesting would be the novelties of daily manor living in the 17th century. Casie's wonderful writing style will transport you, make you smile, and keep you turning the pages - wanting more!

    "Stilted, not sure if narrator or story"

    I'm not sure if it was the story or the narrator, but either way it was stilted and difficult to listen to,so much so that I was unable to finish it. Unlike most Audible narrators, this narrator sounds like she is reading a book.

    "Good Story"
    Would you listen to Knight of Runes again? Why?

    No. Overall, I thought the story was good, the narrator was just OK. Reminded me of Brenda Joyce's Masters of Time series which is outstanding.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rebeka because she was a strong woman.


    Did Montana Chase do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    At times, I could not tell which character she was doing because they sounded alike.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, this book did not make me cry. I laughed a time or two.


    Any additional comments?

    None.

    "Couldn't finish!"
    What was most disappointing about Ruth A. Casie???s story?

    Maybe it's just me, but the story is so slow...I've stopped listening and she's not even gone back in time yet! It's painfully boring so far. And, I'm sorry, but the narrator makes Rebeccah sound like she's old (I guess I'm comparing to Karen Marie Moning or even Brenda Joyce's characters). I haven't decided if I'm going to try and finish this or not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Montana Chase???s performances?

    Not likely

    "Just terrible.."
    Would you try another book from Ruth A. Casie and/or Montana Chase?

    Absolutely NOT.


    Has Knight of Runes turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.. Other authors know how to write this kind of story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just another narrator would have been better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Knight of Runes?

    Most of them!


    Any additional comments?

    Let's see.. Rebeka goes back in time and one of the most important things she could think of was continue her karate training and her exercise and running, daily. She plays the mandolin like that's an every day thing and sings. She's a rock climber and plays chess and gives lessons in plating chess. And I'm only at 39%.
    Arik is a complete jerk. He has yet to say anything even a little bit nice to her. There has been no passion between the two in all this time and suddenly there's an arousal? So, there's either not going to be sex in this book or suddenly 'there it is.' Either have thoughts of sex from the beginning, when they first meet, or don't mention it at all.
    Also, Katherine was bullying Aubrey from the get-go and Arik never said a word and when Rebeka tried to bring it up Arik told her to stay out of it. He was just mean and hateful and I don't think that makes a good hero. I simply cannot finish this book. Besides all that I've mentioned the dialogue in this book seems rather inane and kinda' stupid.
    I love time travel and if this entire book was rewritten I'd give it another try.

    As for the narrator? She's just aweful. Audible needs to allow more time to really see what kind of job a narrator does before they take away the option to return it AND just returning 2 books a year is not right either. The "sample" just isn't long enough!!!

    "Glad to reach the end."

    The narrator was terrible, the voices sometimes had an Irish lilt and they were not consistent. This was my first book by this author and I will not rush out to buy another. Maybe with a different narrator it would have been better. I love historical romance & time travel books but this did not do it for me
