I was excited when I heard a sequel to the first book in Tomamichel’s DRUID’S PORTAL series was coming—I find the historical period of Roman Briton fascinating and was looking forward to Janet and Trajan’s son, Ethan, going back in time to find adventure and romance. THE SECOND JOURNEY is so much more than this: there is a wildly imaginative, fleshed out alternate history (both past and present), multiple shifting time paths, and a trip all the way to a Neolithic Stone Age wedding. Tomamichel blends her sci-fi with a historian’s passion for research and detail, and it pays off. I was surprised and intrigued and completely satisfied. Looking forward to continuing books in this series!
