After being abruptly separated from Nicolas le Breton during the battle to save Mont Saint Michel in 1424, Katelyn Michaels finds herself back in her normal twenty-first century life as an American teenager. Depressed and anxious to be reunited with Nicolas, she is comforted when a series of events and impressions lead her to believe she is being prepared for another mission as a Watchman. When her beloved mentor, Jean le Vieux, comes to her in a dream and gives her the injunction to “Learn of the Maiden and take her the sword,” Katelyn understands that her mission involves assisting one of the most iconic figures in all of French History. Katelyn is once again whisked back to the turmoil of medieval France during the Hundred Years’ War and to Nicolas. However, before the two can consider the future of their relationship, they must first complete their mission to take the sword to the Maiden. Little do they know that their old nemesis, Abdon, is already on their trail and will do everything in his unhallowed power to stop them.

My Review

Last year I have read and loved the first book of this series, I could not wait to read what would happen to Katelyn and Nicolas. This romance is charming, brilliant and exciting as the first one.
Katelyn has returned to live in her century and is back home in the United States. But she is no longer the naive girl than a few months before. She is now a guardian and must guarantee the security and peace of Moint -Saint-Michel, helping to prevent it from being destroyed by English during the Hundred Years War. Above all she met her great love Nicolas and so much missing him, can't live without him. One night in a dream she receives her next mission. Shee must deliver a sword to a very special girl, Joan of Arc. Shee studies French history, learns to fence and climbs on the rocks. When she feels ready just she has  to go back to France and make a new time travel.
The character of Katelyn is very developed compared to the first book, she is more self-confident, more determined, more mature and has become aware of her role as guardian.
This book has everything one could possibly want:  wonderful setting, time travel, a romantic love story, action, adventure, twists, many accurate historical references and a great character like Joan of Arc. I like the style of this author, is very simple but brilliant, her descriptions are really engaging that seems to live there with the characters. The historical reconstruction is very accurate, it is clear that she has carefully studied and has done a lot of research.
I can not wait to read the third episode.
For those who love historical fiction with adventure and fantasy this is a must read, you will not be disappointed
