Customer Reviews

I loved reading it and look forward to her next book.
Arlene Radasky
The author has clearly done extensive research on the facts then used her experience as a regressive hypnotherapist to weave the story into a suspenseful mystery.

Rhonda R Carpenter, in The Mark of the Druid, not only has written a fascinating mystery, she has done her research and created two believeable worlds. The Modern world is one that could be taking place in Los Angeles at this moment and yet the ancient, Celtic world allows us a glance back in time as if we were there.
The Mark of a Druid delves into dream work and the question of reincarnation. I was drawn to the characters and cared what happened to them. I loved reading it and look forward to her next book.

Format: Paperback
Rhonda Carpenter gives hungry readers exactly what they expect from a tightly woven storyline: a book you can not only lose yourself in but find a part of yourself after you are finished. Why do we believe the way we do? Who truly influences the way we evaluate our lives and those of others past? Just because we can't wrap our minds around something does that make it any less real?

These are all discussions that any book club or group of friends will have fun dissecting and debating as they manuveur from chapter to chapter.

Carpenter has truly left her "Mark" with this one, and the literary world is a better place because of it.

I gave this book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I purchased the book because of a display I saw for it on Second Life. The trailer intrigued me, so I purchased the Kindle version, which was under $8. I can honestly say that if the less expensive Kindle version hadn't been offered, I would not have spent $20 (the current price) for a paperback book-- especially since the author has released a free audio version of this book, which is available online.

The book is filled with difficult to pronounce Gaelic names like Gormfhlaith. It would benefit from having a pronunciation guide in the back. I listened to sections of the audio book to help me with the names.

If I had the ability to assign stars for the editing of this book, I'd give it less than 1. There were enough typos and other errors in this book as to distract me from being immersed in the story. The person responsible for proofreading this edition should be fired.

I bought this on a whim hoping to find an author with the same vision and scope as Barbara Erskine. Instead I found a pretty average attempt. While readable, despite many typos and errors, Ms Carpenter failed to draw me into the story. I felt no connection to the characters or the story as a result. The book description puts the age of the main character, Eve McCormick, at 26 yet I kept picturing her as a much older person in my mind. As I didn't find myself connecting to the characters, I didn't find the villain of the piece to be particularly threatening either. I would not have paid full price for this Kindle edition.

The Mark of A Druid was so intense, it actually took my breath away...what a story! The character portraits were so real, I'm sure I've met some of these people in this life or some other. I not only enjoyed enjoyed this book but would recommend it as a 5 star read! The here and now just disappeared while I was reading ...I was so caught up in Rhonda Carpenter's reality.. and that cover art! Wow! The characters are still carrying on in my head....is there another book coming...and soon I hope?

What a wonderful story! Rhonda R. Carpenter brings us an elegant, intriguing tale, intricately plotted, with natural dialogue, brave and truthful characters, craven villainess, confused villain, unfolding mystery, arcane druid knowledge, magic and mainstream regression therapists. What else could one want in a fiction book?

I really like how naturally the magical druid sequences are depicted. It simply is what life is like in realms where people are attuned. Makes me feel that such Reality can crop up in sacred groves everywhere.

I have never read a book in this genre before and it has opened up a whole new world for me...the way the author wound the two worlds together and fit them all together at the end was a wonderful satisfying end to a beautiful read. It really had me thinking throughout the whole book about things that have happened in my own life and I'll be paying a lot more attention to 'coincidences' that 'happen'. I will definitely keep Carpenter on my list of must read authors, I like the way she tells a story. Recommended read for young and old.

This is not the type of story I normally read but the product description got me interested enough to download the Kindle version from Amazon. I won't give anything away but I thought this was a good read, the story line was good enough to keep me reading at a pretty good pace until I was done. My initial thought was that there is plenty of room for additional stories of the same type but I'm not sure how many I'd really be interested in reading... If they could continue with the excellent weaving of current and past life plots I could probably handle a couple more, but I think that would be a little hard to keep up... But I truly enjoyed this one!
