I enjoy the juxtiposition of present and past in Barbara Erskine's books and I adore a bit of the paranormal. She's a wonderful writer and has the right technique to keep one interested (even if the "long haul" is LONG) and I love the historical part. However, I have yet to read a book of hers that leaves me totally "satisfied." I agree with another reviewer that Eigon's story could have been fleshed out more. The book was a bit too long and became at times tedious, and I didn't like the ending which left me flat. I don't quite honestly think I will read this one again. But I still have faith in Ms. Erskine and will continue to on the next book.

I found this new book by Barbara Erskine to be both a chilling and absorbing read, I couldn't put it down. She has the reader from the first page trying to anticipate who or what voices are and if they are real or not. Jess, her heroine, is a teacher who wakes up with no memory of the scratches on her thighs and her torn clothing. Was she a victim of date rape drug? Clearly she has been raped but why can't she remember the who or why. Fearing for her sanity thinking it may be a student she flees to her sister's cottage in the hills of Northern Wales. She has the place to herself to recover her memory because her sister has jutted off to friends in Rome. But when Jess is in the cottage but a short while, she begins to hear a child's voice and learns the area was once a great battlefield for one of the last great battles where the Briton tribes stood against the Romans.

Jess is quickly drawn to the story of Eigon and she wants to know more, but when she has strange happenings with things and visitors to the cottage, she leaves to join her sister in Rome. Unfortunately, her obession grows worse when she learns Eigon too was taken to Rome with her family. Apparently there is some reason why this ancient woman's live is important to Jess. Those around her , her sister, friends and a former lover are growing more concerned by her obsession but all that changes when evil has followed her to Rome Clearly it isn't only the Ancient Welsh princess's life that is danger but Jess's own live as she races around Rome staying just one step ahead of the evil.

In true Erskine fashion she has a story line in the past ( Ancient Rome and Wales) that effects those in the present. There are some surprises for those who read her last book DAUGHTERS OF FIRE. This new offering does have only one drawback and that the role of the hero of sorts plays only a minor role until about the last 150 pages or so, I would have wished to have developed more but after all this isn;t romance .

Those who are fans of Erskine's style are going to love this story and those new readers who love history, mystery and a strange bit of paranormal all thrown together for a satisfying read are going to love this book as well. Surprisingly she expertly blends ancient Welsh Druidism, with the early stirrings of Christianity in Rome which could be turn off for some but I was surprised to find it added wonderfully to make the story come alive. I hope she develops that last bit of unfinished business with one of her spirit characters. Don't wait for the US edition of this book, get it now and find a cosy place to read but watch your back you never know where evil lurks.

I labored over finishing this exhaustive book.

At times after reading the in-depth story of Eigon's struggles coupled with present-day Jess' obsession with Eigon---from London to Wales then to Rome and back----I found the book tiresome, slow-paced. Where was the wonderful independent heroine of the novel? Where was the tension, the buildup much less the excitement to read the story non-stop?

Instead, Jess cringed from fear, quit her job and ran away to Wales to hide out in her sister's house--a place set in the Welsh hills described as a most beautiful and mystical place. But, every male fell over backwards to help Jess, the poor helpless victim. Such characterizations I did not expect from this author, whose work I have read from the very beginning in the 1980s.

There were some interesting characters throughout the book such as Carmella, Merwyn and his interactions with the spirit of Marcia Maximilla, Aurelia. Even the character of little Glads, whom I found the most tragic of all, was well-written.

However, I was disappointed in the ending of the story which was predictable: the beautiful Jess and the handsome Rhodre. Frankly, I was more interested in Merwyn, plus I was fascinated by Aurelia: the free spirited and independent type of woman I like to read about.

Lastly what I found fascinating was reading the Afterward in which Ms Erskine discussed this story esp. the possible lost story of the 2,000 yr old Celtic king based upon a painting the author owns. Ms Erskine's discussion of the painting and the entire background of her research as a historian was Fascinating. I appreciate the author's training as a historian. Her books weave together beautiful tapestries of present and past life and times; however,this is not a book I would choose to recommend nor reread.

I found this book really interesting, Barabara Erskine handled the changes in character and their stories really well. The characters were real and their feelings told the stories.First in ancient England and then in ancient Rome. With the main character being in Modern times and in the modern Rome and England, gave you an idea of how time had changed. Very well historically researched.

Another awesome book by the wonderful Barbara Erskine. A book that was hard to put down - thank goodness it was holiday reading. I found I got really engrossed in the storyline to the point of wanting to be part of it so I could help. A fabulous read.

What a great read, I loved it. I enjoyed it so much I spent quite a bit of time researching Cartimandau, what a woman, so little known about her or given recognition. Up to Barbara's usual standard and then some.
Wow! What can I say about this book. One of those typically brilliant books by Ms.Erskine. So thrilling you are scared to read on, but know you have to. And the research was brilliant as always. Loved it!
