From the author of The Legend of the Bloodstone, Winn and Maggie return for a new journey in the turbulent times of 1600s Jamestown...
When Maggie McMillan is sent back to 1622 by the power of a magical Bloodstone, she makes the choice to remain in the past with the Powhatan warrior who holds her heart captive. Cursed with the knowledge of what the future holds for both the English and the Powhatan people, Maggie and Winn struggle to find safety for their family in a world gone mad.
With the sudden appearance of the Norse Time Walker known as Pale Feather, secrets long buried are revealed that change the course of their destiny. Maggie finds that her journey to the past was no accident, and Winn must decide where his loyalties truly lie. As danger and magic test the bond of blood between them, they must embrace their demons - or risk losing everything.

This is the second book I have read in this series. Although not as good as the first book it was still very interesting and well worth reading ( listening too) I think it may have had something to do with the narrator?. Both books are fast paced and kept me very connected to the characters.
What can I say?! I am attaching quite easily to these characters. This book was told beautifully from the points of view of many. There is an excellent surprise in the beginning and the dramatic tension stayed at just the right pitch throughout the novel.
I was happy to hear more from Rebecca and Makadewa! I am eager to see how that plays out. I will miss Teyas, too and hope to find that she is happy.
I was only confused a bit during a part when Maggie was really angry at her guardian for not telling her more information when she was growing up. This didn't make sense to me because she had already learned how she and her family would have been in danger if she knew more information. I read and re-read that part thinking I might have missed something. Maybe I did. But, Maggie's behavior really annoyed me.
I read the first 1/3 or so on my kindle and then did the whispersync with audible. I wish I stuck to reading with my eyes. I have listened to hundreds of books over the years and I can honestly say that this girls narration was the absolute worst! She did Maggie like a whiny 10 year old! Not how I imagined Maggie to sound at all. All of the Indian men sounded identical in a deep monotone, all of the Norse men sounded identical in a deep Scottish-like monotone.
A great example of the poor narration: She would loudly and animatedly cry a line like: "But, I love you" , followed by: "Maggie whispered". It was so distracting!! That was not a whisper! Poor, poor poor.
Anyway, that is not the book's fault and did not want my rating to reflect the awful listening experience. I can't wait for the next one!
