I was surprised that there was a mini "murder mystery" inside of this unlikely love story.
The narrator's voice was to dye for as the male characters, but was absolutely "off" for the female voices.
I found myself trying to figure out the mystery right along side the characters in the book, and you guessed it.....the killer was......(LOL....got cha')

The story started off pretty well at the beginning few chapters. It got sort of flaky towards the middle; and it totally lost all ZING towards the end. If you have a free credit I would say you could use it but I would definitely not pay cash for this book.

When she agreed to go on a date with quantum physicist Dr. David Fergusson, Kate Kallastad never expected that he would insist on demonstrating his breakthrough in the creation of a trans-space teleportation device. Nor did she expect to get caught up in a science experiment that would send both Kate and her date back in time.

The was just plain AWFUL from beginning to end. The book had no defined plot besides Emma and Logan having explicit sex EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER !. You expect some sex scenes but seriously Eliza Knight?...That's all they did. It made no sense whatsoever.

There were so many opportunities to make this a great book. She could have delved more into his birth right, his relationship with the villain or even his relationship with his parents. The female narrator Arika Rapson even sounded like one of those phone sex operators. Her voice was very annoying and just plain wrong. Anthony Ferguson struggled with female voices and I wasn't sure why the author didn't use the FEMALE narrator.

Don't use your money, credits or time for this 16th Century Audio Porn.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I would recommend this to anyone who is into time travel and magic.

My favorite character in this book was of course Simon. He embraced his gift from book 2 and really ran with it.

Which scene was your favorite?

When he shifted into the Coyote and cornered that bastard Phillip!

Don't believe what you see!
