This mysterious woman dressed in jeans and a leather jacket Believing she is the witch of the stones they threaten to kill her Rising to her own defence Tory challenges the Prince's champion to unarmed combat With her superior fighting skill she easily overwhelms the warrior winning the admiration of the Prince and changing the course of British history forev I don’t want to give this book a rating because I only read the first third of the book and it might have gotten better after thatWhat I didn't likeFirstly the romance aspect of this book is understated in the blurb The first part of the story is basically a romance novel The blurb talks about the main character being an awesome fighter so I really expected that to be the main focus of the story I expected to like the main character but I just didn'tCharacter development was very limited with a rather dry “telling” rather than “showing” approach Actually the whole story took this telling rather than showing approach There was little room for me to imagine anything anticipate anything or to feel anythingThe first approximately three chapters go to great effort to make the premise of the novel plausible This is a goal that has varying degrees of pointlessness in this genre and in this case it just reads like a tedious fleshing out of the blurbIt seemed like there was ample opportunity in the first part of the novel for the characters to undergo some growth but it just didn't happen or when it did there wasn't enough of an emphasis on those characters There were possibly too many characters which made the emphasis of the story a little odd Some really big events happened in the plot and the main characters just went on with things as though very little had changedFinally the dialogue makes ample use of the words thou and hast and their derivatives This bothered me but I am not sure that it would have if I had not made myself aware of it by reading somebody else’s review before I had finished the book I have certainly read other books which employed similar techniues and they did not bother me

The Ancient Future The Dark AgeThe white light surrounded her exuding from the ground within the circle The mist rose towards the sky to form a billowing cloud From within the largest stone a ball of blue light steadily made its way towards herLate one evening a car accident leaves Tory a daughter of a prominent history professor stranded near a ring of stones in the English countryside She Truly awful Mary Sue uh I mean Tory is at the same time conveniently one of the few modern speakers of early medieval Welsh a black belt in martial arts and a shallow ignorant idiot who the author would have us believe is a great woman of destiny The editing is terrible but then the manuscript probably started out worse hard though that is to believe There aren't many good places to go when you start out with an author capable of using or misusing two 17th century English words thee and hast to represent the fact that people are speaking early medieval Welsh a fact that's abundantly clear from context without this marker which is therefore simply annoying Especially since those two words are used without any regard for grammar they are always thee and hast regardless of their role in the sentence or the subject of the sentence And there's no sense of genuine history Tory convinces her Welsh prince that the state needs to educate the children What state would this be? What books would they use hundreds of years before printing? What would peasant children conceivably do with their ability to read? And how would their parents feel about not having their essential labour while they learn this unneeded skill?I'm not even sure why I finished this unoriginal and muddled piece of vague New Agery I certainly don't know how it and a number of seuels managed to get published
