The two protagonists are thrown back in time quickly, and the action gets going right away, so that's good. What's not so good is that there is almost no emotional reaction to their dilemma, or anything else in the book. One tearful breakdown from the female character, but no discussion of their plight whatsoever. The female main character is also preternaturally quick to react to the situation and knows everything that the pair needs to know in order to survive.
While I'm no big fan of the obligatory "Oh my God! We're in the PAST!" scene, at least some emotional process needs to happen.
It felt totally plot-driven, not much character at all. Plus a couple of things had no logical consistency. The pair get thrown 7 years into the future by an angry elf (another strange plot point) and talk their way out of it when the nobles that they deserted (albeit inadvertently) catch up to them and demand answers. Too easy. Also too easy was the male main character rising in the noble hierarchy.
