For Alexandra Patton, the Time Raiders project sends the reluctant psychic back to 60 AD Briton - a world where she can barely understand the accents, let alone its culture of brutality and superstition. Armed only with her "freakish" ability to talk to the dead, Alex must use all her gifts to entice Caradoc, a savagely sexy Druid warrior, into helping her succeed in her m ...more

German Rezension

Inhalt :

Wie weit gehst du zurück, um mit deiner große Liebe vereint zu sein? P.C. Casts großer Roman über die schicksalhafte Reise einer Zeitgängerin in die Zeit der keltischen Krieger … "Komm zu mir …" Mit pochendem Herzen erwacht Alexandra aus einem Traum. Der tiefe Wald, in dem sie sich befand, der Mann, der sie gerufen hat – das war erschreckend real! Ihr ist, als müsse sie seinem Ruf folgen. Und dann hat sie dieses schlangenhafte S gesehen, wie ein magisches Zeichen einer ve

3 out of 5 stars. I finished that book yesterday ... it was good. I did like it but it was not my fave book by P. C. Cast, I was kind of disappointed in how it didn't really break at all from what she normally writes. Which can be a good and bad thing. =0/

Das Cover ist toll gestaltet mit dem Gold und Gelbton und macht Neugierig was die Frau auf dem Cover erwarten wird. Aber auch das Schwert mit dem Namen der Autorin finde ich gut in Szene gesetzt. Für mich ein Eyecatcher.

Alexandra Patton ist übersinnlich begabt und kann seit frühester Kindheit Geister sehen und mit ihnen kommunizieren.
Sie liebt es abgeschieden und arbeitet als leitende Botanikerin, Touristenführerin und Dozentin in dem Nationalpark in Oklahoma.

Mit “House of Night” wurde ich zum Fan von P.C. Cast, endgültig besiegelt wurde es jedoch durch die “Tales of Partolon” – Reihe (könnte ich eigentlich mal wieder lesen). Als ich nun hörte, dass die Autorin ein neues Buch veröffentlicht, stand für mich direkt fest, dass ich es lesen musste. Interessanterweise war mir zunächst egal, worum es ging, sie hat mich in der Vergangenheit immer überzeugt. Dadurch stand die Frage ob oder ob nicht hier für mich gar nicht im Raum ^^

Wie schon gesagt, ich hatt

P.C. Cast konnte mich früher häufig mit ihren Geschichten unterhalten und in den Bann ziehen. Da ich zuletzt ein Buch von ihr abgebrochen habe, wollte ich mir zunächst eine Auszeit der Autorin gönnen, habe mich dann aber umentschieden und wollte ihr mit "Die Zeitengängerin" noch eine Chance geben, doch auch hier wurde ich leider sehr enttäuscht.

Der Schreibstil ist nett, allerdings sehe ich keinerlei Entwicklung mehr bei ihr. Die Figuren laufen alle nach dem gleichen Schema ab: Starke Protagonist

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Everybody is always going on about how you can't judge a book by its cover and all that, but, really. We totally do that. And I couldn't help but do it with this one. Good reviews not withstanding.

This is actually the third volume of a series, but I skipped the first two and it didn't get in my way at all.

I have to admit that the first few pages did drag a bit... yup, s

I thought The Avenger was a refreshing change from P.C. Cast’s normal niche of writing, but I also thought her writing somewhat improved when she wrote adult characters.

The Celts were well developed and well described as Celts, though sometimes you could mistake them for being modern, but hey, it’s hard to write like you are from 60 AD, when you obviously have never spoken to them before.

I thought the plot was well thought out, there was a point to the story and it was also interesting enough to

I am a huge fan of Cast's House of Night series but Historical Romance isn't normally my cup of tea. However, once I'd read a couple of chapters I was glued to it. To me the idea of a 21st century woman who can see the dead travelling back to the time of Boudicca to recover missing pieces of a medallion seemed a tad convoluted and a bit strange but it really did work. Cast made it work.

There are a two main characters in this book. Firstly Alex who the story revolves around as she travels back to

The Avenger is a tale of ghosts, time travel, war, revenge and romance all in one novel.

My expectations for this book weren’t very high. I don’t like PC Cast’s House of Night series; I can’t bring myself to read any further and I’ve only gotten to book three! So I was surprised at how much I enjoyed The Avenger. I can honestly say that I’ll definitely be reading more adult paranormal romance in the future.

I loved the historical setting of this novel. The Roman empire’s reign is an era of histo

This was good fun. I thought the book didn’t take itself too seriously and was better for it. I loved the time travel aspect of the story and enjoyed the 60 AD setting. I was fascinated by the history of that period and would definitely be interested in reading more about Boudica. It was much more spiritual than I expected it to be but in a pleasantly surprising way. I enjoyed all the magical aspects and the drawing of power from the land – but some may find too much detail is included
