Review by: Alex Draven on Dec. 11, 2011 :
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.

Review by: Tona Cruz Dominguez on Oct. 20, 2011 :
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.
