A late twenty-first century time traveler battles bards, druids, warrior queens, and Roman cohorts for survival during the Celtic rebellion against the Romans in Britannia, 60 AD.
Time traveler John Moore's fate is determined by four women: the Celtic warrior queen Boudicca; Tailtu, a gentle slave purchased from another clan; Dr. Eleanor Roberts, a severe, jealous and brilliant woman who spearheads the time travel mission; and enigmatic Dr. Cheyenne L'Esperance, herself a time traveler from an even more distant future. Moore's mission to survive three battles against the Roman legions coincides with survival tactics and backstabbing in the modern government department. The savage past clashes swords with the desperate future in a time continuum of treachery.

An intriguing and a refreshing change, a novel about time travel both from the future and into the past. When John Moore wins the contest to be the subject of the trial he is transported back into the time of Boudicca. Whilst he is on his mission a stranger appears in the research facility which sent John on his mission but who is she? And what is her role ? The author has shown a lot of research throughout the story, the descriptions of how the people lived, traveled and most of all survived is first rate . Whilst John Moore is on his mission the emotions and stress that are felt back in the lab, as well as the tension between the researchers and the directors on the outcome of the mission which will affect future funding, is excellent and truly believable. The narrative is fast paced, full of excitement and adventure, which keeps the reader enrapt . As John Moore is transported back in time the excellent descriptions make you feel that you are sat right beside him taking everything on board and traveling alongside him on his journey . The characters that he meets are brought to life excellently and the roles and status that their hold in their lifetime are accurately portrayed . This is the second book that I have read by this particularly author, both being totally different but the author style of writing involves and hooks the reader from page one.
