As a lover of all things fantasy, British History and Egyptology, I was rather intrigued by this book when it first arrived in the post. I'd previously devoured 'VIII' by HM Castor which had come in the same parcel and had high expectations of this other fiction title published by Templar. Having literally just finished it, I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed. This book was fab!

The use of the two voices, one modern and one 17th Century gave the book a real distinct voice and both combined to

I have some issues

I will be completely honest with you and tell you I had issues with this book. I know that some of the incidents portrayed were acceptable for the era in which the book is set but I still found aspects disturbing, this is partly due to the fact that I am a complete wuss and partly because I have three girls and am over-protective of them.

It was decent. Child-like characters (well, they are 14...) and their immature thoughts and actions that I do not like very much. The plot was okay I guess, and I like the way the chapters alternated between the two girls.
Though the concept was great and it was full of potential. I found the story slow and predictable. Which are two things I can't stand.

i wished the rope walker did't die
Dark, strange and captivating. I was drawn into the book from the beginning. I loved the back-and forth between Claire's story, set in the present, and Margret's, in the 17th century. Many mysteries kept me turning pages: Who is Robert exactly? What about the ring? What happened to Margrat? What will happen to Claire?

Unfortunately, the ending was disappointing and didn't do the rest of the book justice. Think of a nice fireworks display with little or no finale.

I quite enjoyed this. I liked the two different perspectives, each in their own time, with echoes of words/concepts linking them. I found the writing style to be a little less self conscious than a lot of the "popular" YA stuff out there.
