Overview

Jack Churchill, archaeologist and dreamer, walks out of the mist and into Celtic Britain more than two thousand years before he was born, with no knowledge of how he got there. All Jack wants is to get home to his own time where the woman he loves waits for him. Finding his way to the timeless mystical Otherworld, the home of the gods, he plans to while away the days, the years, the millennia, until his own era rolls around again . . . but nothing is ever that simple.

A great Evil waits in modern times and will do all in its power to stop Jack’s return. In a universe where time and space are meaningless, its tendrils stretch back through the years. Through Roman times, the Elizabethan age, Victoria’s reign, the Second World War, and the Swinging Sixties, the Evil sets its traps to destroy Jack.

Mark Chadbourn gives us a high adventure of dazzling sword fights, passionate romance, and apocalyptic wars in the days leading up to Ragnarok, the End-Times: a breathtaking, surreal vision of twisting realities where nothing is quite what it seems.

Loved the story. Love overcoming despair is kind of the theme of this book.

An epic fantasy adventure in the making. In a battle between hope and despair, creation and destruction, this demonstrates that lowly humans can actually affect the ultimate outcome. Spreading from our time back to before the building of Stonehenge and back again, spanning the globe from England, across America, into Italy, Vietnam and places in between. From our world to the Far Lands (as well as asking who really killed Kennedy). Showing that we are all tied together. So, maybe the ultimate question is, since we are all going to die eventually, what would you sell your death for? Or as a fictional character put it (in a different British authors work) “Small chance of success, certain death. What are we waiting for? © Night Owl Reviews
