You probably won’t like my story. Heck, I’m not sure if I even like it myself. Between getting burned at the stake and being drowned, almost twice, it’s quite a lot to swallow. But this is the story of how I bedded a queen and married a poet, all to end the family curse. My name is Guillaume, but you can call me Gill, and despite what you hear, this story is all my sister’s fault.
How does she do it? How does she read so fast? I’m lucky. I can zone in and just go. It’s a gift. Like fast typing. Or a great imagination. Or throwing people for one helluva loop like Rebekah did with Mirrors, the first book in the Curse of Lanval series did.
EMT turned History Major, Gill Lanval, because lets face it, I took french and can’t pronounce his damn name, just wants to chase tail like any normal twenty year old college guy. He’s finally getting into the swing of school when his sister calls him about some weird dates in their family history. Not only do the dates make no sense, but the guy looks identical to Gill. He shakes it off and laughs as its probably recessive genes. That’s what his mom had said after all.
But then he finds himself heading back to France, to g to his uncles funeral, far too soon. And his sister Jules convinces him to go to Castle Lanval, the families namesake, and take a look around. Maybe see if they can’t figure out the date discrepancies. But when they get there they have to rush. It’s almost closing time, and they only have 30 minutes to look around. Their first stop is the chapel of the old castle where they find the mirror and as fate would have it, get transported back in time, to 1154.
What happens when you meet yourself in 1154? Or the hot wife of yourself? Or even land in the middle of a war you have no clue about? Do you run? Try to get back? Or roll with the punches? I’m not sure even I know what I would do and I can’t wait to see what Gill and Jules do on their adventures in the Dark Ages of Medieval Europe as they try to make their way back home.
Great little book, that will keep you entertained the entire time you read. Full of history and detail, its a transitive exploration through the ages, taking you from 2016 to 1154 in the blink of an eye, without missing a beat. Will be eagerly awaiting Marie, book two, which even has a teaser at the end of Book One. You can find the pre-order for the Kindle edition on Amazon, free t Kindle Unlimited users, or the Paperback here on Amazon. Release is set for December 3rd. Pick up your copy now.
