With her loved ones in peril, Rowena casts a spell to move back time to save them, unaware of the consequences. As Cedric fights battles down south, she unwittingly rides into an enemy war camp and is taken prisoner by her old friend Lars, who is not what he seems.
Yet Rowena is not helpless. After all, she is a half-witch with a whole lot of magic in her. Too bad she doesn't know how to use it. Escaping from the camp, she continues to botch up spell after spell. Soon Kendra joins her on the trek back to Huel, along with the latest magical mistake, a flame-burping dragon called Cinders.
When war comes to Land's End, it brings the one man who threatens to conquer everything in Huel, including Rowena's heart. Now she has to make the biggest decision of her life. Will she return through the wall to safety in present day Arizona? Or will she stay in Land's End for good and fight to save her people from the Viking Warlord?

This was very interesting book. So Rowena is a half witch who does not know what she is doing. She was not taught how to use her magic before her mother died. She spends the whole time trying to help with magic, but keeps screwing up. She makes a huge mistake by turning back time to fix a mistake she made. Now she has to deal with the consequences. I liked that Rowena was a newbie with magic. It made her seem more real. While she tried hard to be helpful, she kept messing up. But no matter what she didn't give up. She wanted to help everyone and kept trying. It was a good book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
What an incredible story! Battles, strategy, weapons, and a dragon. Yes, a little dragon named Cinders! Cute and awesome! Incantations with hilarious results, demons bent on destruction, and a claiming. (Don’t know what that is? Read this story and find out!) Two things really stuck with me as I read this story. The first was the depth of Lars’ feelings for Rowena. His love for her came through with amazing clarity, and not just when they were in bed. I could feel it in the way he looked at her, how he talked to her, how he acted toward her, how he considered her when she spoke. He was always attentive when it came to Rowena, in a time when women were seldom valued so highly. The second is the detail. Ms. Campbell’s attention to minute detail is spot on. There was never a moment where I felt like I was a spectator watching this story happen, because I always felt like I was actually there. Sounds, smells, environments. Wonderful job, Ms. Campbell. You pulled me right in and kept me there until the end. Time travel romances aren’t for everyone, myself included. But when an author puts as much time and effort into building an accurate historical world with paranormal elements and contemporary characters like Ms. Campbell has, I will happily admit that time travel romances really aren’t that bad and that all I needed was to find an author who writes them in a way that’s appealing to all my senses. ***Received from Pump Up Your Book for an honest review***
Raising the 5-Star Flag! Ever since I picked up the first book in the Land’s End series, I’ve been hooked. Melodie Campbell writes foot-stomping funny, yet romantic endearing, stories that keep me turning the electronic pages well past bedtime.
