Hurled twelve hundred years into the past, into someone else’s body, things could hardly be worse. And then the body’s owner wanted it back…
Museum curator Thomas and ten year old Anglo Saxon Wulfstan, have to cope with a fifty year age gap, a huge culture clash, and never knowing from one moment to the next who’s going to be in control.If that wasn’t enough, Wulfstan’s father, King Offa of Mercia, has given his son just a year to find and prepare a team of ten female fighters to take on the King’s champion.
In the brute strength world of Anglo Saxon battle, he hasn’t a hope.
Thomas has a plan to help, but first he’ll have to come to terms with eighth century Britain, with all its colour, violence, ignorance, and a disturbingly cavalier attitude to hygiene! And amidst all of that, he has to find ten amazing women willing to attempt the impossible.
The inspiration for In Two Minds.
If you woke up one day to find yourself hundreds of years in the past, you’d be okay, wouldn’t you? I mean, after you’d got over the shock and everything, you’d know things that nobody else did, so you’d be rich in no time. Right? Ah, but do you know enough to actually do it, and could you get what you need to pull it off? The theory’s one thing, actually doing it’s quite another. And then there’s the tiny little matter of fitting in with your new neighbours…
I loved the idea and the inspiration behind this book!
The blurb for the book really intrigued me and I couldn’t wait to get started on the story – and I have to say that it well exceeded my expectations – it was a brilliant story!!
I loved the setting for the book and I thought that the characters were excellent too. They were really well developed and the author really brought them to life. It was a great mix of historical fiction and fantasy that worked really well.
It is 5 stars from me for this one, I thought that it was an excellent story and a brilliant idea and concept – very well written and very highly recommended!!
