Shawn means self and Kleiner means centered, one of Shawn's (many) ex-girlfriends proclaimed. Shawn had it all-wealth, fame, women-until the night his girlfriend had enough and abandoned him in a medieval Scottish tower. He woke up in the wrong century. Two years in medieval Scotland will change a man-and make him see what his ways have cost him.

Safely back in his own time, Shawn is steadily regaining all he lost-his career as a world-traveling musician, the son he feared he would never know, and finally, maybe-even Amy's heart. But as he does, he learns of the dangers still lurking in fourteenth century Scotland: to Niall who will pay the price for the deed Shawn committed; to his own son, the subject of prophecy and an ancient letter predicting a fateful battle; even danger to the whole world as the Butcher of Berwick uses his knowledge of the future to destroy it.

In this gripping conclusion to The Blue Bells Chronicles, Shawn faces the ultimate test. His selfishness once cost him everything. His newfound selflessness may do the same.

The author takes you on a journey to Medieval Scotland and Back. You will not be able to put down the books, so settle in for awhile with a drink and a comfy place to sit.

Since childhood, I've been in love with historical Scotland (no small part thanks to Braveheart). I have been drawn to historical fiction ever since. Author, Laura Vosika blends a unique view of romantic past, mixed with the brutality of medieval Scotland. "The Battle is O'er" is fifth in a historical time-travel series, about a thoroughly modern man who is pulled back to the time of Robert the Bruce. I'm a big fan of time-travel stories, where the author literally transports us through the main character, into a different world. But Vosika's "Blue Bells Chronicles" is unique in that she allows her characters to rewrite history. "The Battle is O'er" concludes the adventures of Shawn and his friends in the distant past. Shawn may have returned to the present, but the danger is far from over. A prophecy leads Simon Beaumont to unspeakable acts, while Christine is desperate to escape her captors and return home. In the present, Shawn and Amy struggle to protect James, while discovering where they stand in their relationship. This is a carefully interwoven tale, with chapters written in both past and present. Each scene led seamlessly into the next, until I had to reach the satisfying conclusion. "The Battle is O'er" blends the excitement of a modern thriller, with the immersive details of the best historical fiction. Vosika clearly shows her writing chops here, drawing her story forward with a cast of colorful and relatable characters living through extraordinary circumstances. I'd highly recommend this to fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.

Like an intricate musical arrangement, this work ties together the threads of The Blue Bells Chronicles in such a way that every note, every switch from century to century, from character to character, leaves the reader breathless and craving more. The author masterfully raises the tension, keeps the reader guessing, and with hook after hook, draws the reader on the most exciting and satisfying conclusion to one of the best series I have had the pleasure of reading. Ever. If ten stars were an option, Laura Vosika would have earned it, and I would gladly have awarded it. If you love a long, intricate time-travel romance of the highest quality; one that will keep your emotions riding on a roller coaster between loving the characters and wishing they’d come to their senses, finally understanding why they did what they did and loving them even more; then read The Blue Bell’s Chronicles. I’m stunned at the power and sheer beauty of this work. I will read anything this author writes.
