An intriguing and a refreshing change, a novel about time travel both from the future and into the past.

When John Moore wins the contest to be the subject of the trial he is transported back into the time of Boudicca. Whilst he is on his mission a stranger appears in the research facility which sent John on his mission but who is she? And what is her role ?

The author has shown a lot of research throughout the story, the descriptions of how the people lived, traveled and most of all survived is first rate .

Whilst John Moore is on his mission the emotions and stress that are felt back in the lab, as well as the tension between the researchers and the directors on the outcome of the mission which will affect future funding, is excellent and truly believable.

The narrative is fast paced, full of excitement and adventure, which keeps the reader enrapt .

As John Moore is transported back in time the excellent descriptions make you feel that you are sat right beside him taking everything on board and traveling alongside him on his journey .

The characters that he meets are brought to life excellently and the roles and status that their hold in their lifetime are accurately portrayed .

This is the second book that I have read by this particularly author, both being totally different but the author style of writing involves and hooks the reader from page one. ( )

A really interesting mix of futuristic SF and historical, juxtaposing a future earth, where women outnumber men significantly, with the early years of the Roman occupation of Ancient Britain, Boudicca's revolt, and the end of women's official role in war and leadership. Possibly because of my interest in this period of history, I found the historical world easier to sink into than the future-modern one, but the author does a brilliant job of binding them together, and keeping the parallel plots balanced and pushing the story forward equally. Enjoyed. ( )

Wow. Have you ever thought what it would like to go back in time and see Romans soldiers fight Celtics warriors. What life was like then? Time traveler John Moore is going to be seeing it first hand. He is part of Dr. Roberts time travel experiments. The cold blooded Dr. Eleanor Roberts life depends on this experiment being a success. When Dr. Cheyenne L’esperances is introduced to Dr. Roberts project, it isn't long before the cynical Dr. Roberts feels threatened. Why shouldn't she be? Dr. L'esperances is loving, emotional and genuinely cares for others.

John is going to be sent back to Britannia in 60 A.D., by Dr. Roberts. He is not her first choice but she is out voted. This is John's second time travel trip. Dr. Roberts thinks that John will become emotionally involved with the people he is observing and she's right...

John soon starts to feel for the Celtic Queen, Tailtu and the slave boy he is observing. He knows that he is not to tell anyone anything that happens in the Future. It could change the outcome, but he can't just let them die. ( )
