A guilty pleasure novel that combines a thrilling tale of time travel, magic, erotic M/M fun, and adventure. Follow Ehane Freeman, a native American witch, as he journeys back to 1636, right before the Mystic massacre, the darkest time in Connecticut’s history. Ehane is determined to save his ancestor, Sassascus, the sachem of the Pequot tribe, from the massacre. However, his brother, Dohate, is against the idea. He is more concerned with the ramifications of tampering with the timeline.

Ehane goes against his brother’s counsel and travels back in time and inadvertently destabilizes the natural course of history, leaving Dohate to clean up his mess, yet again. Dohate and his friends have to assimilate into the 17th century to help nudge history back on course. They fight on the side of the Native Americans as their battle with the Puritans grows to a fever pitch.

Excerpt:

“Okay, getting back to the Mystic massacre,” Dale inquired. “Exactly what date did you send us back to?”

“I don’t know.” Ehane said flippantly. “Why don’t we check the calendar hanging on the tree?” Ehane realized that it would have been smarter to pick an exact date to come back to. The loud snap of a twig caused all three of them to turn quickly in the direction of the two men who approached them.

Two white men stood with muskets in hand. The men were dressed as Pilgrims. Even in the heat and humidity, they were dressed, from head to toe, in somber colored linen clothes. Both men wore conical crowned hats rounded at the top with wide brims. They wore their sweat-soaked hats leaning a bit crooked on their heads. Their clothes were damp with perspiration, and the men reeked of sweat.

“Greetings to thee strangers, art thou lost?” The taller man asked. “Thou should wander naught outside the protection of Fort Saybrook.”

“Whither art thou weapons? Surely thou dost travel naught unarmed? These woods art infested with.” The Puritan fell silent after a subtle glance in Ehane’s direction. No doubt, he was going to use a derogatory term for American Indians.

Ehane believed he could emulate their manner of speech. “We hath come from out of the wilderness. Today’s march twas nearly 10 miles. We art traders from the south. I’m Ehane Freeman, tis Dale, and Jared Mason.” He addressed the man dressed in the brownish maroon breeches.

“Greetings to thee, I am Captain John Brewster, tis Captain John Oldham. Tis a queer name for an Indian. Which tribe art thou from?” Brewster, the taller man, asked Ehane.

“The Pequot’s,” Ehane told Brewster proudly.

“I hath traded with the Pequot’s on occasion. Thine manner of speech is vexing. Tis, unlike any Indian I hath foregathered.” Brewster said. Ehane could tell the man was sizing him up. He caught the slight nod Brewster gave Oldham, who returned the gesture with the slightest shake of his head in agreement.

Like real life the distribution of an Estate tends to create sibling rivalry, this time that leads to time travel. While back in time the brothers rediscover their lost boyhood relationship and some of their friends find love and acceptance. The web of fantasy and historical fiction leads the reader on a path to adventure that ends with a change to the timeline with joyful results for the hero's. A great sequel to The Guardian. I can't wait for the third in the series.


About the Author

I was born and raised in Southern New England. I have an interest in history. I am a college graduate, with a bachelor's degree in fine arts. The Hallowed Bloodline series started as a simple question in the back of my mind. I wondered if I was somehow thrown back in time would I consider changing the past?
