Honestly, I HATED this book. Everything was great right up until about the end of it and I kinda went... "wow. Um, didn't expect that (and not in a good way)" and I ended up hating the author's idea of butterfly effect for the following spin-off series.

The characters are... alright. The plot, pretty good actually.

But the execution of both together? Things kinda got out of hand at the end of the novel with the 'battle' and the tribes in our modern-day Britain. The evil characters were just too evil and the good characters just too good. At least in 1632 people make mistakes and deal with them - here... not so much.

A good attempt at time travel with a populous, but... it didn't tickle my fancy.
