Prince of Time - Celtic Saga, Bk 3 Author:Glenna McReynolds The enchanting blend of passion and sorcery that has won Glenna McReynolds such high accolades weaves its unique spell once more in this new novel. Here is a one-of-a-kind reading experience, bringing together a thief and a princess on an unforgettable journey toward danger and desire.... — Prince of Time — He's the last thing she expec... more »ted -- and she has waited for him all her life! Ten thousand years ago it was written that her barbarian prince would have the powers of a mage, the heart of a warrior, and the courage of a saint. Instead she gets a mercenary thief with a fondness for off-world wine and the vice-filled dens of the Old Dominion! How can the sacred prophecy be wrong -- or is there more to this man than meets the eye?
Lady Avallyn, Princess of the White Palace, has little choice -- and no time -- to ponder the possibilities of a mistake. She's the one woman with the knowledge to save a twelfth-century mage whose demise turned the earth into a barren desert. And there's only one man who can take her back into the past: the charismatic thief who may or may not be the fated Prince of Time.
Morgan ab Kynan knows nothing of the ancient prophecy, only that he was wrenched from his own world and thrust into a future where he has a price on his head. Set upon by a pack of bounty hunters, the timerider finds himself saved by the most extraordinary woman, a golden-haired beauty in tattered black robes. Now they're bound together -- literally -- by the tracking bracelet she slapped around his wrist.
He is hers -- for the moment -- but who is really the captive and who the captor? For even without the bracelet, their fates and emotions are bound together by something greater.
The reluctant thief and the resolute princess now must travel back in time, followed by a ruthless villain who wants them both dead. Morgan and Avallyn will need more than skill, courage, and magic to survive in the ancient past, where the greatest enemy of all awaits them at journey's end -- Dharkkum, the devouring darkness of a lost age. They will need faith in each other... and a trust born of a passion willing to sacrifice everything -- even life itself -- for love.« less
Trina B. reviewed Prince of Time (Celtic Saga, Bk 3) on
Not what I was expecting after reading the first two books in the series, which take place in the middle ages. This book jumps forward several thousand years in the future, a time period that I generally avoid reading about. I enjoyed the love story between the main characters but for the most part, was only really intrigued by the fast-paced last 15 pages or so.
