Review by: Independent Bookworm on Sep. 24, 2012 :
A disappointment.

I wanted to like this book since I'm a great fan of all things Scottish, and I love archeology. The novel started out slow with lots of head hopping, gaining only a little momentum when the ring was found. Unfortunately, the bad guy (easily identified as such) died during his first attempt to get the ring. His replacement, not very well introduced at all, sort-of-dies at the second attempt. There never is anything like a final confrontation between the baddies and the goodies.

There were many potentially good ideas in this novel but they were buried under tons of esoteric stuff. The whole book read more like a manual on reincarnation than a novel. Don't misunderstand, I like ideas of reincarnation. The parts where the archaeologists re-lived their previous lives were the best bits of the book. It's just that due to a lack of real conflict, everything became unimportant toward the end. Sometimes I was so frustrated, I wanted to put the book aside. I only didn't because a few, tiny things kept me interested. But that's not enough for a good review.

This author has great potential but learning about conflict and plotting would do him good.

Exciting and intriguing plot, with interesting, likeable characters and a great, creepy villain. The reading experience would have been even better for me if the point of view hadn't changed so much earlier on (as another reviewer commented on), if the final challenge had been more difficult for the heroes and heroines and by better proofing of the text, but these were minor issues and I highly recommend this book.

The first thirty or so pages was a struggle to get through, the writing jumped from person to person so fast that I was confused, HOWEVER, I wanted to read this, I wanted to know this story. I'm very glad that I stuck with it. I had at first thought this story would be about Greek Gods, but it was fasinating and entertaining. A must read!

Archeology set in the far north of Scotland leads to a fascinating exploration of reincarnation, reminiscent in places of The Mists of Avalon. Fantasy meets mystery as someone seeks the ring across time...
