Tl;dr: If the premise of this book sounds good, give it a shot. It's a well written story that I found quite enjoyable. It won't change your life, but you'll have fun reading it.

This is a book I would normally rate at 3 stars, but since it currently only has 12 ratings and I feel it deserves more notice, I've given it 5 stars to help it on its way.


The main protagonist is Ciaran. He's a pagan priest from 5th century Ireland who blasphemes his priesthood and so is cursed with eternal sl

This book was a quick read and I enjoyed reading it, but I didn't know the book was going to leave me hanging! Apparently, I either did not see that this one book in a series, or it wasn't advertised as such. Had a little bit of history and some romance and was a little fantasy, but as I was looking up the second book, I couldn't find it on Kindle or anywhere else! Maybe Goodreads will see my post and offer up the second book which is a continuation !

Most Unusual

This has to be one of the most unusual books I’ve read in eons. The hours of extensive research and organization gone into the creating are awe inspiring to say the least! Creativity at it’s best.

Hard to put down!

This is an awesome story about an ancient Celt who suddenly finds himself alive 1500 years after his entombment, struggling to keep his identity concealed from the archeologist who found him. I just hope the author completes the sequel soon. Highly recommend.

What an exciting book!

I've read many time travel books and this is right up there with the best. Ciaran is a character that makes you hang on every word about.
