Publisher's Summary

On her way to a martial arts convention, Danielle Kane's plane crashes on an island in the Bermuda Triangle with cities trapped in time. She is furious to learn that on this island teetering on the brink of civil war, women are chattel. The 16th-century Spaniards want to lock her in a tower. The 14th- century pirates want to enslave her. The Inca Indians would worship her as a god. The World War II soldiers aren't sure what to make of her. None of them are ready for a modern woman.

Entertaining store, but could use better narration

I thought this was an entertaining book, though probably not one I would read again. I enjoyed seeing a strong female lead character, and I was touched (and affected, though I won't give spoilers) by her relationship with Morgan. What made me give a three-star rating instead of a four-star rating was the narration. I found a lot of the mispronunciations of certain words or forms of words distracting. For instance, the word "bow" was used in the books as in "to bend from one's waist," but the narrator pronounced it as in "to tie a bow." There were several instances like that that I took away from my enjoyment of the book. But overall, it is an entertaining story.

Many Familiar Pieces

Take a large foundation of 'A Conneticut Yankee in King Aurther's Court' add in liberal dashes of 'Lost' 'Kung-Fu' 'Zorro' and 'Joan of Arc' bake in the heat of the United States of America Revolutionary War and this pretty much sums up the book. The author does a masterful job of weaving these elements together, and it makes a somewhat unique story.

The narrator is very skilled. Her accent also adds an element of authenticity to the Spanish-style backdrop of the novel. Unfortunately she seems to mispronounce several words, especially those related to the Martial Arts terms and Oriental words. Conversely, her portrayal of the emotional states of the various character, especially the sidekick can be immersive and redeeming.

The story has many opposites drawn together. There is Triumph and Tragedy, Hope and Despair, Violence and Comradery. The ending wraps things up, and yet still leaves things for the audience to wonder about.
