I absolutely loved the first book and anxiously awaited this second book, and it didn't disappoint. I loved seeing how the characters progressed and advanced, and the antics that Shawn and Niall got into. Laura introduced some new characters, too, which I absolutely adore. I'd love to pull two of them right out of the pages and into my life. I don't want to post spoilers, so I'll just say that while this one may not have had as much action as the first, it has just as much charm. Anxiously awaiting book 3!

Another great read by Laura Vosika! This is book 2 of the Blue Bells of Scotland Chronicles. It was so good to see Shawn/Niall & Amy/Allene again. Not just them but so many characters old and new. I love the way the author has them interact with each other. Reading each scene for me was like watching a show or movie. Going back and forth between characters and time.
In the first book[book:Blue Bells of Scotland|6810566] I was wanting to knock some sense into Shawn. In this book I found my self wanting to knock some sense into about 5 of the characters. I was talking to them as if they could hear me, actually mad that they were not hearing me!
The scenery is written so well, I could see it; be it out side or in. I love seeing the castles both in their original time and on the tours in present time. I could just imagine going through the archives as Amy and Angus were doing. I really liked the new characters especially Rose, Angus & Christina. When I saw the words The End I literally said NO! I wanted to keep reading!
This books takes you on a wonderful ride through Scotland both in the 1300's and present time (its never bad to learn some history!) with characters you love and characters you hate. I am hanging on the edge of my seat to see how things work out! I highly recommend this book! Ooooh it is going to be hard waiting for the next one!

2013 is far to long to wait for the next book. Would love to have it much sooner.
this author was unknown to me until I saw her first book on Amazon.

Well, here it is and I really don't want to do this, but I must. I read the first one and couldn't wait for the next installment. This is almost like watching paint dry. The Amy parts are SO slow...mourn, mourn, research, research for pages. Flip over to the other time period and it's somewhat similar, not much really happening for pages. This story shouldn't have been expanded, it needed to be clear and concise with movement to keep the readers interest. I really don't see me reading any more of these. I'm really disappointed. I loved the premise and the characters, was really sucked in by the first one. Unfortunately, more is not better here, it's just more.
Updated:
I finally finished the book. Most of the action takes place in the last 20 to 25 percent of the book. It was hard to keep reading to get to the that point, once I got there it was good. Sadly, I think most authors think that making something longer is better. If the next installment is like this, readership will drop off if they are anything like me. It's hard to spend that much time to get to the end where something is actually happening.

this book was a real disappointment for me after the first of the series. there were a lot of mistakes regarding terms, phrases and historical facts. many were out of the wrong century or just wrong. i have a kindle and its attached to a dictionary so i can look up anything im just not sure of and many of the terms she used were not from the century her story was taking place in. also, to many uses of the same terms over and over. the book got really slow and almost silly towards the end, of which i skipped to out of boredom. i realize she is not diana galbaldon, but it seems she needs to do some homework regarding facts and terminology for her story.

This is the second installment of her trilogy, but it neither stands alone, nor entertains the same way as the first book. I thought the book dragged in parts, and certainly it could have been shorter, since it neither advanced the story line nor completed the tale. The author clearly wanted to develop the main character, but only really succeeds in making her less likeable. I reached the point at the end of the book where I wanted one of the other characters to tell her to grow a backbone and move one. Perhaps not the impression that the author was trying for

Laura Vosika has so many remarkably well-developed characters in her novels, they almost become like a circle of friends. From the arrogant Shawn, who is learning some grave lessons in humility, to the grieving Amy, who is beginning to learn just how strong she can be, on to the mysterious Christina, for whom we must wait to learn more about in the next book of the series. Each has wonderful qualities. I've read this novel three times already, and still I find myself holding my breath, even though I know what is coming next. Laura's writing is excellent, the adventures as realistic as time-travel can be, and each scene is extremely detailed. Every page, I can practically see as well as if it was in a movie. These books are a treasure on any bookshelf!
