The extraordinary and bestselling journeys of one woman throughout time ... the white light surrounded her, exuding from the ground within the circle. the mist rose towards the sky to form a billowing cloud. From within the largest stone a ball of blue light steadily made its way towards her.Late one evening, a car accident leaves tory - daughter of a prominent history professor - stranded near a ring of stones in the English countryside. She resolves to spend the night at the sacred site; a black belt in tae-kwon-do, tory holds little fear for her safety.But across the vortex of time and space, she is being watched. the Merlin knows of the legend tory is to become, and through the wisdom of the Old Ones, teleports her back to the Dark Age.Prince Maelgwn of Gwynedd and his band of knights stumble across this mysterious woman dressd in jeans and leather jacket. Believing she is the witch of the stones, they threaten to kill her. Rising to her own defence, tory challenges the Prince's champion to unarmed combat. With her superior fighting skill she easily overwhelms the warrior, winning the admiration of the Prince, and changing the course of British history forever.
