When a futuristic chalice transports San Francisco-based videogame programmer Marian Tyler back to 1100 AD it turns her life into a living knightmare.
Dashing Sir Thomas de Percivale is on his way to his execution - unjustly accused of a crime he didn't commit - when a 'witch' drops out of the sky and knocks him off his horse thus saving his life. Together they must flee for their lives, outwit the Bishop of Durham and stay alive long enough to reclaim Sir Thomas' birthright. When given the chance to return to her own time, will Marian go back to hot showers, Diet Coke and Reality TV, or stay with her knight in slightly tarnished armor?

This was a good story and the narrator did a good job. I would have liked a male narrator though. I wonder if the author will continue the series. The bad reviews are not accurate or deserved.

Definitely another reader.
Would you ever listen to anything by Laurie McLean again?
Unless the author is the one who engages the narrator, I would purchase another book by Ms. McLean.
How could the performance have been better?
An experienced reader.

Is this another Kevin kostner Robin Hood ?
The narration was not bad, it was the recording that sucked. The recordings was of poor quality. It sounded like she was recording in an empty room and was far from the mic.
The story line however was horrible. I only made it to chapter 4 when I realized the story was going to get sexually explicit and I try to avoid sexually explicit stories. Why audible can’t seam to provide some form of screening for those of us who don’t read/listen to porn.
I stoped after the 3rd or 4th time Sir Thomas kept identifying his sexual desire for the time traveled Marian in a degrading and derogatory manner. Great “hero”.
The author also portrayed a spiritually sound Muslim who was quick to believe in Marian’s divine arrival (theologians puzzling) yet despite his horrid back story he had a grand faith in Allah while both Marian and Sir Thomas struggled with their own personal Christian faith. Typical slant on Christianity and the lack of true Christian faith these types of novel like to depict. As If the Christians invading Jerusalem did not begin with all the surroundings Arab nations around the Middle East invading Jerusalem prior to Christianity. Ummmm do you think the previous invaders also did not pillage and burn and robbed the temple of its wealth. Babylon! Medes! Persians ! Yet once again the portrayal of the Christina faith, along with the Bishop of Durham (obvious bad guy) portrays Christianity as the evil ungodly catalyst to the downfall of mankind. Sounds very Kevin Costner Robin Hood.
No, this story is not for me despite its potential for a good story line. I love time travel and medevil. I recommend books from Tamara Leigh a highly qualified clean romance historical medevil author.
