As a fan of time travel romances, I approached this novel with a smile. The novel did not disappoint in any way. The story moves incredibly fast, but is still very moving and heartwarming. The characters are very well written and extremely strong on their own, but together they are nigh unstoppable. The story of Isla and Cian is one of love and war, trial and peace. It is one that seamlessly blends historical fact with Norse deities and beliefs, and tosses in few fictional characters to give it just the right amount of everything. This novel was a delight to read, and I look forward to more books of a similar vein from this author in the future.
