Archaeological dig volunteer Melinda Kaibell is plucked from her own time by the goddess Askar. She's placed in the Bronze Age, during the glorious climax of the Minoan Civilization on Crete.
The catch? She's aware of the catastrophic eruption that completely wiped out this civilization, and it's happening in a matter of weeks. Can she deal with her emergence in this ancient time, her near-deification, and a budding romance, all while trying to save Askar's people?
Linn Henderson gives us a time-travel fantasy romance that's both mystical and engaging. I don't want to give away too many of the story's many plot twists, but it seems that Melinda's not the only time traveler that Askar's put in harm's way...
Highly recommended as an intro to the works of Ms. Henderson or Lilac Moon Books.
