Very good storyline. I enjoy fantasy novels and this book flowed nicely in that genre. I thought the author's story concept was well thought out. I felt that overall, this story could be further explored and developed and I look forward to Mrs. Taylor's next volume.

Ran across this one, liked the cover art, looked interesting. It was a really good, quick read, the characters were fun, a different kind of story than I expected. I liked the relationship with Emma and Thomas, looking forward to the next one.

I rather enjoyed this book! There were some places in the book were...I don't know...maybe a little to detailed and the story seemed to drag on a bit. Overall, it was a new take on Merlin and Camelot that I have nver seen before. I couldn't stop reading until the end and now I am ancious for the second book so that I may continue the story!

This author could use several lessons in character development, how to pace a story, depth and detail, and all sorts of other things. It also wouldn't hurt to have an intelligent main character who picks up on clues without having things spelled out for her. Emma was irrational and logic-defying, and no other characters were worth knowing. The beginning was very compelling, leading me to hope, but that was soon crushed. I skimmed the pages for most of the first 100 but barely got past that before becoming so repulsed with the style of writing that I had to delete it.

This story idea was interesting, but the potential was not met. It contains plot inconsistancies and unneeded repitition as well as numerous spelling and gramatical errors. Overall, the story seems to have been written by a pre-teen who had a short attention span and needs a good editor.

This was a bit far fetched but VERY LONG and does get boring. Dont get the $4 one if you do get one just buy the free version.

Very disappointed! The last 50 pages probablymore said the same thing over and over again. No point to read book two I lost interest,what a shame this could have been a really good book, however there was way to much left out in the open at the end.........

The end of the book tells us this is is the end of book one. Yes I would like to read the next. The last 100 pages of this 414 page book went on and on. What an imagination. I liked it.

this book is everything that is wrong with ebooks. just because anyone CAN write a book and put it out there for the world to read, does not mean that anyone SHOULD. don't get me wrong, i love my nook and my free ebooks. i have found many good series and some of my favorite authors that way. but for every one amazing book i read for free, there are ten others that make me want to tear my eyes out and throw them at the author. this is one of those books. i was literally in pain while reading this book. it gave me headaches. and stomachaches. i had to stop reading every 30 minutes to give myself a break. i don't even know where to begin with the things that are wrong with this book. in no particular order, here are the worst things about this book: 1. the "slang." apparently this book starts out in 2011. when i first started reading it, i thought it was in the 1980s, possibly 1990s. obviously it has been decades since this author was a teenager as she has absolutely no idea how they speak. it was so horribly forced. "I'M GOING TO USE EVERY SLANG WORD I CAN THINK OF IN ALL THE SENTENCES THEN I'LL SOUND YOUNG." no. just no. 2. random facts that have nothing to do with nothing. apparently the main character lived in hawaii at one point. does this have anything to do with the plot? nope. but she talks about it for a couple pages. 3. rambling descriptions of crap and then skimming over the actually important plot points. she'll spend pages and pages and pages going on and on and on about the scenery or emma's hair or emma's conflicted feelings about thomas or the color of the sky. and during these endless pages, she'll reuse the same phrases over and over and over again until you start to panic because you think you're caught in a never-ending loop of horrible metaphors. eventually the cycle breaks and you actually get excited because something is happening and hey, maybe the author will choose to ramble about something important! nope. not even. "we fought against the evil creatures. we won. we walked back home." WHAT. 4. the horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE typos. there is just no excuse for them. here's a couple of my favorites: "This had become scared ground." REALLY? that ground is scared stiff! "He cried out his innocents." NO! NOT THE INNOCENT CHILDREN! 5. historical inaccuracies. really, if you're going to right a story about time-travel, TAKE THE FREAKING TIME TO DO YOUR RESEARCH. 6. the fact that the entire time emma was stranded in a completely different century, instead of having a complete mental breakdown like a normal teenager, she's all "oh, well, i just won't think about it. OHEMGEE LOOK AT THE CUTE BOY." 7. no 18 year old boy i have met would fall in love with a 15 year old girl. especially not after knowing her for 2 weeks. just...no. 8. just the really, really awful writing. let me share my favorite passage. +Thomas rolled over, grabbing for me, tickling me, like he might his kid sister Anne. I moved around, laughing with Thomas, playing our little game, when he kissed me again and that time it tackled me, smacking me in the middle, my feelings. IT SMACKED ME RIGHT IN MY FEELINGS. don't read this book. for the love of all good literature, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.

This was an overall good book, it jst draged on. I think that this book would have been better if it was divided into two books, instead of being a almost 600 pg. book. The Tale of Emma Ott had awonderful storyline and all, it just felt to long to read in one sitting. There were many places were it could have stopped and could have picked up in a 2nd book. I realy would recomend this book to everyone, as long as they have the time. :)

It was OK. The writing style was odd though. It was all narration with very little dialoge

Not bad for a free book. Was kinda slow in my opinion and ended right when it finally was getting good.
