Just too much death, blood, and sorrow for me...
on February 26, 2003
I am torn by this book. I really wanted to love it, and for the most part, I did, but the plot is rather dark and depressing at times. These two lovers were destined to be together, but fate is doing everything it can to keep them apart. Between pride, misunderstandings, impotence, curses, and suicide they are doomed to never have a life of love together. Also, the circumstances regarding Callie and Talis's birth was very upsetting to me.
If you can get through the dark parts of the book, the love story is very emotional and touching. Their love is truly a love that spans eternity. The ending is a little cheesy and unbelievable, but so are most of Ms. Deveraux's books.
If you are a Jude Deveraux fan, then I would recommend this book. But, all in all, there are many better time travel books available (Diana Gabaldon, Dean Koontz, Nina Bangs).
