I've past this book by many times because it just didnt seem like it would be good, but it was. At first it was hard to get into going from past to present, but once you realized it all was tying in together, the pages couldnt turn fast enough. Good blend of present and medieval history, along with a little fantasy. Recommend.

This book is intriguing, somewhat of a balance between fantasy and historical fiction. It goes back and forth between two very different timeframes, while bit by bit explaining how the two merge. It became a little overwhelming with characters and relatives towards the end, yet it is not essential to remember every bit of those interweaving relationships to understand the concept.

This book held my attention from start to finish. I loved the mysteries and how they were solved. My only complaint is that by the middle of the book, the author adds so many characters that it's impossible to keep track of who's who without a family tree. It got to the point where I stopped trying to figure out who was involved at the moment and focused instead on the main characters who were very interesting on their own. Was kind of hoping this book would be the first in a detective series but the ending doesn't tell you one way or the other. I'm hoping that the author will feel compelled to write about these characters again. Other than the character over population, I highly recommend this book to lovers of detective novels with a helping of fantasy thrown in the mix.

Exceptional character development and historical facts. I loved the true English text and while it did drive me to an English dictionary and online sites on a regular basis, i enjoyed the learning process immensely. I read it through one and then again with reference books and sites making notes as i went along. This is definately a book i will read over and over again making annotations all along the way.

I enjoyed the book and its flashing backwards and forwards between times. It is rather long--795 pages--and this might be a deterrent for some. I don't usually read any book that has a bit of the unusual as this one does, but the title was what intrigued me. I wanted to see what use the author made of "Runes."

This book is a hybrid of a fantasy and a historical fantasy. There are 2 different story lines at play, that merge together towards the end. Quite a few characters to keep track of, but not as many as in "A Song of Ice and Fire." Overall a good read, it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

I'd like to give this a higher rating, but since I couldn't quite finish it, I can't. I found the plot and concept very intriguing, but there were too many characters and separate stories within the whole to keep track of, and too much repetition on the theme. I got too frustrated to keep going and stopped about 2/3s of the way through. It could have been a very engaging tale, but it desperately needs some brutal editing to cut out needless repetition, tighten up the story elements, and tantalize the reader with hints and insights along the way. My advice to the author - get an agent and a real publisher. This has great potential. To fellow readers, make a crib sheet of all the characters as you go. This is interesting enough that I'm going to wait a bit then give it one more try. JRB
