A very detailed book that connects modern and medieval times is always welcome. It's sad that errors in the book have taken so much from it.

Yes, everyone loves medieval times, right? Thanks so much for the comment.

Time travel is interesting. I'm just glad this one didn't have too many paradoxes, which give me a headache. Thanks.

I like the concept and I could probably even deal with the errors, but why on earth do we need to know tiny details like what size their clothes are?!?! I think that would turn me off more than anything. Thanks, though, for the honest review.

I also become overwhelmed when too many unnecessary details are provided, making the book unnecessarily lengthy. Great review, as always.

If there was some point, I might could handle it. It didn't seem like there was, though. I hope the author can do some editing to make it better because it's a good plot. Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words. It was a bit overwhelming. I admit that I kind of rolled my eyes every time I learned about the same horse!

I find that the book is ok I just wished that it would of gave more detail throughout all of it. But for a short story its not bad for a teenager to have something to read when they are bored. I would rate the book 3 out of 5.

Thanks for your honest review. This sounds like a great premise for a time-travel YA fantasy that needs further development.

You wanted more detail? I hope not with the clothes sizes or the horse descriptions. There seemed to be plenty of those details. Thanks for your comment.

Seems like this novel has quite a number of issues. Whatever degree of potential the story may hold, it still seems it’s in dire need of some reworking.

Thank you for a great review, regardless!
